Stroll a pearly white beach, eat red hot lobster, sit by a crackling fire. Go on a take-your-breath-away hike, sip on a heady ale from our micro-breweries, Hell Bay or Boxing Rock, or wet your whistle on an Ironworks perfectly distilled spirit. 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.
When summer hits, there is no place we’d rather be than at the beach. But a day at the beach can mean different things to a whole lot of people. For some the ideal beach day means laying on a beach blanket – summer read in hand. We can't say we blame you, it's a pretty great way to relax. But for those who are looking for adventure, there are lots of great activities that will still give you a fun-filled day at the beach.
