5 Roadtrips To Go On This Summer

Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, Aug 10, 2015


1. Appalachian Trail: "The Appalachian Trail runs from Georgia to Maine, and it passes through most of the states in New England on its way north. If you choose to do a day hike, or something a bit longer, be sure to choose a hike that is safe for you based on your hiking experience."

2. Mount Washington: "At 6,288 feet, the summit of Mount Washington in New Hampshire is rightfully intimidating. If you’re the adventurous type, you can hike up to the summit. If you prefer to take in your surroundings from the comfort of a vehicle, you can drive up, or take the Cog Railway."

3. Conway Scenic Railroad: "The Conway Scenic Railroad takes passengers on a trip through nature and time. Take in New Hampshire’s beautiful natural scenery from inside an old-fashioned train. The trains leave from the Victorian station in the center of North Conway Village."

4. Old Orchard Beach, ME: "Old Orchard Beach, Maine, has a downtown made for tourists. There is a traditional pier, an amusement park, an arcade, a sprawling beach, and no shortage of souvenir shops. This charming summer destination offers something for visitors of all ages."

5. Stowe Vermont: "The mountains of Stowe, Vermont offer biking, hiking, and beautiful lakes. While you’re there, make a stop at the Ben & Jerry’s factory in Waterbury to see how the famous ice cream is made."

2 Places to Go Camping This Summer Near Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Wed, Jul 22, 2015

Check out these 2 great campgrounds provided by Thrillist, for a nice summer weekend getaway!

1.Shawme-Crowell State Forest (address and info)
Sandwich, MA
"There are 285 stunning wooded sites at Shawme-Crowell, and you really can’t go wrong with any of them. Surrounded by endless pines, the spots are quiet and with enough room between them so not everybody hears you... playing Yahtzee, of course. Explore the 15 miles of roads and trails, or bring your horse and enjoy equestrian access to over 700 acres. For cyclists, the park connects to the Cape Cod Canal bike trails and you can get to both downtown Sandwich and the ocean pretty quickly, as well. Either a plus or minus, depending on your perspective: Shawme-Crowell is a bit less “wilderness-y” than other camps and is equipped with showers and restrooms."

2.Harbor Islands (address and info)
Boston, MA
"You probably didn’t even know that camping was allowed on the Harbor Islands, did you? Well, it is... and there are four island destinations to choose from: Bumpkin, Grape, Lovells, and Peddocks. Each has its own signature mojo, but if we had to choose, you're snagging one of Bumpkin’s three beachfront sites. It’s carry in/carry out (you can hop the ferry to get there), and you absolutely won’t mind because of the killer panoramas, cool ocean breezes, and campfires on the beach. Don’t forget your H2O, sunscreen, and s’mores. Lots of s’mores."
