Summer is the perfect time to bring your family together through outdoor recreation. The days are long, you have more free time on your hands, and the kids don’t have their busy school and extracurricular activity schedules to worry about. Take full advantage of the family fun opportunities available in Hanover, Massachusetts, and nearby hotspots before the summer ends.
Local Camping Spots
The Wompatuck State Park is the perfect place to set up an RV and enjoy the great outdoors while the weather remains spectacular. The park grounds are beautiful, and you have access to paved trails, fishing spots, potable water, campsites with electric and many of the other comforts of home.
Picnics by Ponds
The Houghton’s Pond Recreation Area is a welcoming place for your family picnic. You can hike through the 7,000-acre forest and head down to its namesake pond. It’s spring fed, and you can go swimming to work up your appetite. If you have horseback riders in your family, you have access to riding trails that take you all over this scenic wonderland. If you’d like to have a day filled with outdoor recreation, Forge Pond Park is minutes away and convenient for a quick afternoon visit.
The coast is beckoning you all summer long, so make sure you get your beach time in before it gets too cold. You have your pick of spots near Sconset Landing, with Brant Rock Beach, Duxbury Beach, Mound Street Beach, Nantasket Beach Resort and Bathing Beach within a short drive. You’re only dealing with local beach-goers in most cases, or those who have summer homes in the area, so you don’t have to worry about the sand being overwhelmed by large tourist numbers.
Fun in Your Backyard
Sometimes you want something closer to home, and at Sconset Landing, you get to enjoy a private nearly 60-acre wooded enclave. Just walk out your door with your family to get an eyeful of nature all around you.
You have a great selection of places to add to your potential visit list, so you’ll never have to worry about what to do when the kids start complaining about being bored.
