7 Summer Must-Do's on the Patriot's Trail

Cute Dog in Park with Patriot Sunglasses

The dog days are over but there are still a few weeks of summer left – make the most of it with our realtors’ pick of 7 fun things to do in our local area.


1.     Get out on the water – rent a kayak or paddle board and chill out on the water at Spot Pond, Stoneham, Horn Pond, Woburn or Sudbury River in Concord.

2.     Keep your cool - indulge in some delicious homemade ice cream! We love Bedford Farms in Bedford or Concord, Great Brook Farm in Carlisle and Kimball Farms in Westford.

3.     Take in some art – explore Winchester’s Art in August, with displays from local artists in businesses around town, or take a wander around the outdoor artwork at deCordova Sculpture Park in Lincoln.

4.     Visit a local farm – explore the sunflower fields at Verrill Farm, Concord, celebrate Corn Fest at Wilson Farm in Lexington, or pick your own raspberries at Wright-Locke Farm, Winchester.

5.     Enjoy an outdoor movie – head into Boston for free film nights at Christopher Columbus Park, Boston Harbor Hotel or Prudential Center, or get the full drive-in movie experience at Mendon Twin Drive-In.

6.     Listen to live music – the outdoor concert series at Nara Park in Acton continues until September with live bands and tribute acts.

7.     Catch the sunset – enjoy swimming and cocktails as the sun goes down at the Sunset Tiki Bar and Grill, Westford.
