Fun things to do in New England

I always enjoy researching fun things to do in my area. No matter the season, there's so much going on. What's your passion?  History, music, tea, animals, photography adventures? Perhaps one of these events will strike your fancy.

Here are my top picks for the end of February and the month of March.  I hope to attend all of the events listed. I already purchased a ticket to the Crane Beach Photo Safari. If I attend an event, I will post about it. So don't forget to check the blog regularly.

Welcome to the Stevens-Coolidge library, a place of pleasant conversation, good friends and for this morning – tea time. Helen Stevens Coolidge kept a busy social calendar and we’d like to invite you to be a part of it. Enjoy seasonal teas and treats in the summer estate she shared with husband and US Diplomat John Coolidge, as a Trustees staff member combs through their expansive book collection and diaries.

Winter Goat Hike  March 13th 6-7PM Goats To Go, Georgetown, MA

Join us for a stroll in the woods, with goats on leads and some roaming free as we hike through the farm's woods. These events may include a meet & greet with other animals on the farm such as horses, goats, llama, sheep, dogs, etc. Some events will have a theme as well.  We will provide goat treats to each participant and teach you more about goats and life on the farm.  The walk will be a little over a mile round-trip on gravel and hilly terrain.  We'll be going at "goat" speed.

Crane Beach Photo Safari   March 22nd  6-8PM  Ipswich, MA (photo credit and description

Winter on Crane Beach offers us a unique opportunity to go where we've never gone before - on the sand! 

Join us on a fun and educational oversand adventure as we explore the winter landscape of Castle Neck and Crane Beach. You will learn all about the natural history of the barrier beach as we keep a look out for winter wildlife including snowy owls!

In this special photography offering of our Crane Beach Safari, we will be prowling the beach at prime photo time: one hour before sunset (golden hour) through the last glimmer of sunset, possibly getting into blue hour. You will be joined by a professional photographer who will be on hand to guide composition and offer advice on camera settings. The fact that we'll be on wheels means that we'll be able to travel to seek out spectacular locations while not wasting time on foot that could be spent behind the lens!

Which events interest you? How do you spend the last months of Winter in your area? Leave a comment, I love to hear what you have to say.

Thanks for alerting us to all these cool happenings. How do you find this stuff? You're a wealth of information about all things New England! I'm definitely going to Tavern Night at Woburn Public Library. Such a beautiful building, right near home too!

I took a walk yesterday to discover signs of spring.
Next week it will be a drive and walk on the beach. I love a winter beach walk.
Your plans are extra special. Enjoy!
