There are so many beautiful orchards where you can pick-your-own apples here in Massachusetts, so we’ve gathered up some fabulous spots for you to take the family. Before you go, be sure to call ahead or check the individual website for picking conditions.
Every Friday in September, join Lindsay, an instructor from the Elite Dance Center for a Mommy + Me Class at the Patriot Place Activity Center (across from Bar Louie). Classes start at 11am. There is no cost for admission, all classes are free and open to all ages!
Mini Golf is an easy outdoor activity to keep the kids busy for a few hours. Our favorite place to head out for a round of 18 holes is McGolf in Dedham. We can golf, hit at the driving range, and get ice cream too!
TreeTop Adventures is an aerial adventure park for ages 7 and up, where kid and adults alike can climb up into the trees, tackle above ground obstacles, and zip line from tree to tree on 10 courses of varying height and difficulty. It’s perfect for the whole family!
Painting With A Twist in Braintree isn’t all about mom’s night out and wine, they’ve got tons of summer fun planned for KIDS too! This summer, check out their Kids Camp Classes, where kids ages 6 to 10 will paint a painting, eat pizza, and watch a movie!
Patriots Training Camp is one of our favorite free summer activities each year (Check out one of our past visits here and here). Each summer, select practices are open to the public on the fields next to Gillette Stadium.. Fans can grab a seat either in the stands on or the grassy hill next to it, and watch their favorite players. Concession stands are open for snacks, and if you stick around until the end of practice you may even snag an autograph or two.
The Braintree Community Arts Center (BCAC), located at 1969 Washington Street, is open to residents of Braintree and surrounding towns offering a variety of classes/workshops to all ages and abilities. No matter your interest, they have a class for you!
