Fun in the Summer Sun 

There are few better places to enjoy a hot summer day than Walden State Pond Reservation in Concord. For just a $5 daily parking fee you can go swimming, kayaking, go non-motorized boating, hiking, have a picnic by the water, throw the frisbee with your friends, and more. It’s a fantastic place to bring the family for a day out together or just relax and get a tan on the beach without having to drive all the way to the ocean.

Eat Ice Cream

It’s not summer without ice cream. Luckily, Heritage Farm Ice Cream & Restaurant in Lowell has been serving up sweet, cool treats for over 90 years, so you can count on them for delicious flavors of ice cream. You can also head into the dining room for other summer dinner staples, like lobster rolls, burgers, hot dogs, and more. It’s a classic spot that anyone visiting the Merrimack Valley in the summer should stop by.

Kimball Farm in Westford shouldn’t be counted out either! With over 40 flavors of ice cream, you’ll beat the summer heat and have happy taste buds to boot. Once you’ve cooled down, why not partake in Kimball Farm’s other fun attractions, like mini-golf, the batting cages, and bumper boats. It’s fun for friends, family, or just on your own!

Local Summer Events

One of the best things about summer is that there are tons of special events where you can get out and meet members of the community. Verrill Farm in Concord not only has amazing fresh produce available at the farm stand, but it has a calendar full of events you can sign up for and participate in. From blueberry pancake breakfasts to ice cream socials to corn picking, you’ll surely find something fun that will accommodate your busy schedule.

Art Outdoors

Want to view beautiful art but don’t want to be stuck inside a stuffy museum? Stay outside and walk around deCordova Sculpture Park in Lincoln to appreciate stunning, thought-provoking artwork. The ever-changing landscape and rotating collection of sculptures ensures that no two visits will be the same. Enjoy both the beauty of nature and of man-made, creative sculptures across 30 acres of land.

Yes, summer is the time to get out and have some fun, whether it’s just for a day or a week-long vacation. Be sure to take lots of photos of your adventures to show your friends and family – you’ll be the envy of your instagram feed when your followers see how much fun you’re having.
