Come here to check out the famous Make Way for Ducklings ducks that are found in one part of the park. This is Boston's Central Park: not nearly as big or diverse, but an iconic spot nonetheless and you can take a Swan Boat ride from here, too. Take the Red Line to "Park" and you'll be on the Common!

This is our favorite beach. The water is somewhat swimmable by August (it is New England afterall) and check out Russell's Orchards for apple picking and cider donuts on your way home. With no traffic, Ipswich is about an hour north of us.
