One of the things I like most about living in Boston, is how quickly you can change your scenery. About 40 minutes north, Wingaersheek Beach is a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. At low tide, the beach goes on forever and the tide pools make it perfect for kids. On site facilities and a concession are available. During the summer, it's important to get their early, but in spring and fall during the week it can be the perfect spot to recharge.
