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.
