An Afternoon at Blue Hills

Blue Hills is a fantastic local resource for some back-to-basics family fun. We've been going there since the kids were little.  We head to Blue Hills for a hike at least once each summer.  We’ve only explored the red trail so far – it’s an easy hike to the top to see Eliot Tower and the weather observatory.

Start off at the Trailside Museum and map out your route.

There are a few rocky spots along the way – be sure to wear proper footwear!

The kids love to stop at Eliot Tower for a snack break and to check out the amazing views.

The weather observatory has a gift shop and bathroom (thank goodness).
