Getaway to Ipswich

Last summer we loved exploring the North Shore. Ipswich has so much to offer! It's an easy day trip from the Boston area. We had picked apples at Russell Orchards a few times in past autumns, and strawberries in June. This summer, we also went in July and picked delicious blueberries and raspberries!

We bought some local cheese and rosemary crackers in the farm store, and we took our lunch down the street to Crane Beach.

It's a beautiful spot!

When we left the beach, we stopped by a table the rangers had set up to identify some of the birds and sea creatures we found.

If you take 1A to Ipswich from Boston, we recommend stoping on the way there or home at Patton Park in Hamilton. It has fantastic play structures and a zip-line, and it's a fun way to break up the trip.
