Get Active this Autumn in Merrimack

Share this post:

Autumn is just around the corner, and with the weather beginning to cool down to a comfortable temperature, it’s time to get active. No more fear of overheating in the hot summer sun – you can get outdoors and enjoy a range of healthy physical activities. Be sure to still remember to wear sunscreen and keep hydrated, though. 

Go Golfing

In New England, the golf season doesn’t typically end until November, depending on the weather, so why not get in a few more tee times before then? There are a lot of great golf courses in Merrimack Valley, so you’ll have your pick of options.

12 Great Golf Courses In The Merrimack Valley Area

One standout course is the Andover Country Club. With a meticulously manicured, 18-hole championship golf course open to members and their guests, it’s ideal for the serious golfer. You can play in competitive and social leagues, simply tee off with friends, or be professionally instructed at the pristine practice areas.

If you’re a casual golfer or simply don’t wish to join a country club, you can head to Kimball Farm instead. You can get in a proper game at their par-3, 9-hole Pitch & Putt course that features full-sized, professionally maintained greens with distances ranging from 40 to 100 yards. Practice your swing with a bucket of balls at the Driving Range. If you’re feeling competitive and adventurous, take on one of the two 18-hole miniature golf courses.

Play Some Soccer

Speaking of feeling competitive, a great way to get active is to play some soccer. You can join a league or just get a group of friends together in the park. However, to avoid slipping on the grass and taking yourself out for the rest of the season, you may want to pick up some proper footwear from Soccer Stuff. They have an extensive knowledge and inventory of soccer cleats and equipment. The staff will take the time to fit you with the right cleats to ensure you’re comfortable as you play.

Fun On and In the Water

While the temperature may be starting to cool down, New England typically still has several weeks of warm weather left after Labor Day. That’s why you should go to Lowell Heritage State Park to enjoy some swimming, fishing, and boating before summer officially ends. Get your kayak, canoe, or motorized boat, grab your swimsuit and fishing poles, and make the most of the beautiful water while you can.

Hiking and Walking

Being active doesn’t have to be physically strenuous. It can be as simple as taking a leisurely walk by the river at the Concord River Greenway Park. The fresh air and mild exercise is perfect for anyone with a busy lifestyle or who would rather take things slow and enjoy the beautiful Concord River scenery and wildlife. 

Getting active is easy while in Merrimack Valley, and it’s never a bad time of year to get fresh air and exercise. It’s an important part of living a healthy, happy life, so no matter how crazy life gets, take some time to get active and have some fun this autumn.
