Your Local Summer Plans Guide

We happen to believe that we live in the best little corner of the world.  We work here, live here, and help other people find their homes here!  The four seasons are often celebrated, but Summer is a special part of the year when us New Englanders get to go out and play.

Here’s a list of some great activities for the whole family, whether you want to get away for a weekend or need some rainy-day options.


Lions & tigers & bears…oh my! Zoos are a great day trip for the whole family, and we have some great zoos in our area.
