Winter on the South Shore is a wonderful time for families to be active and have fun. You can step outside to make snow angels or snowmen, go ice skating or just have a rousing snowball fight. But, as the winter wears on, every parent knows that the winter blues will hit. When that happens to your kids, you’ll be glad to know that the Hanover area has places to go for a change of pace and indoor fun – all convenient to Sconset Landing.
Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield
This family center is located less than 10 miles from your Hanover home in the city of Marshfield. Members can take advantage of a wide range of activities, including fitness programs. Kids also love the arts programs that let them paint, make arts and crafts projects, learn puppetry and create their own plays.
The Emilson branch of the South Shore YMCA is conveniently located right in Hanover. Members have access to a range of activities for kids of all ages. Fitness, swimming and sports combine with programs focused on arts and sciences to pique the interest of everyone in your family. The Playroom and Activity Center is also a great place for families to spend time together and have fun.
South Shore Children’s Museum
The goal of the South Shore Children’s Museum is to bring play and learning together. The Museum is located on Washington Street in Hanover. Hands-on exhibits take you and your children on a fun journey through history. Programs such as art classes or classes in dance, karate and science are sure to give your kids hours of fun.

Just a few minutes away, you’ll find the South Shore Natural Science Center in Norwell. It’s a unique opportunity to see the wonders of nature that are found on the South Shore.
