There’s something in the air here. You can taste it as surely as fresh salt spray on your lips. Outdoor experiences & fine dining, lighthouses & wilderness, culture & history – come see us on the South Shore.

Another consideration for our trip was our spirited one-year old golden retriever Quentin – who was bound to make things interesting for us!
