Niantic, CT —
A quiant seaside village of east lyme

Niantic, a quaint seaside village of East Lyme, has become a tourist destination in its own right, with Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound to the south, and the Niantic River to the east. Niantic is the only community on the Connecticut coast where the “Main Street” runs parallel to beautiful Long Island Sound. It’s the home of a mile-long waterfront boardwalk overlooking Long Island Sound offering inspiring views of Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound.

Eastham, MA —
Eastham is the Gateway to the Park

When is the last time you can remember laughing and being in a place that makes you feel like a kid again? Come to Eastham, a small town with less than 5,000 residents that stands out when it comes to beauty, friendliness and recreation. My family and I love living here and wake up each day to a list of places to explore and learn about.

The beaches are untouched, pristine and available to all, some of Eastham’s special places are:

Darien, CT —
A Perfect Summer or Early Fall Weekend in Darien

Get up early Saturday morning and take a walk through Woodland Park with it’s many trails. You will feel like you are miles away from civilization. Alternatively, try the loop around Long Neck Point with beautiful vistas of Darien Harbor and Long Island Sound. On a clear day, you will be able to see New York City. You will likely see many other people out on this route jogging, pushing strollers or walking dogs. Then go out for breakfast at one of the many local spots for the perfect bacon, egg and cheese or a fresh bagel. Some favorite spots are Jake’s Place, Uncle’s Deli or UCBC for great bagels.

Darien, CT —
Summer Nights in Darien

The Darien Nights Concert Series was launched by Darien residents David Genovese and Penny Glassmeyer, who head up Baywater Properties and Grove Street Plaza, respectively. During the Winter of 2008-2009, the two decided it was time to do something positive for residents who would be staying around town because of the unsettled economic climate and to encourage them to shop locally and support Darien’s merchants. The first series was such a great success this yearly tradition has continued ever since and every year attendance grows.

The Florida Grapefruit League

Florida has been home to the Florida Grapefruit league for over 125 years. Each spring, 15 MLB teams more south to Florida to prepare for the season ahead, all while basking in the Florida Sunshine. Teams include: Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, Tampa Bay Rays, Detroit Tigers, and more.

Head for the Hills

Could it be that a tiny village only 30 miles from Boston has the best water views on the South Shore?
 
Marshfield Hills is the hill village that sits above the winding course of the North River. If you enter the Hills from Main Street and wind your way down to where the streets are named for the people who settled there, the views of salt marsh, tidal creeks, river, pond and ocean form a panorama of nature and community that is both rare and beautiful.

Cohasset, MA —
Youth Sailing Programs in Cohasset

Cohasset Massachusetts is an historic former fishing village located on the shores of Massachusetts Bay approximately 20 miles south of Boston. The town was first discovered by Captain John Smith in 1614. It is a very scenic town with many great vistas across the water, often from high atop a granite outcropping. Perhaps that is why Cohasset derives its name from the Native American term, Conahasset, which means long, rocky place.

Chatham, MA —
The story of a local family

How many small towns in America can say they have been the centerfold of National Geographic magazine? Or how about the famous Red Sox legend, Ted Williams throwing out the first pitch on the 4th of July? Or the Discovery TV Channel filming here for Shark Week?
 
Chatham, MA can!
