Being in Massachusetts for the summer means I get to divide my time between Boston and Cape Cod -- a city slicker one day and a beach bum the next (the perfect lifestyle in my opinion). I intend to make this summer the best one yet, and I have a few ideas on how to get started.
Visit more local shops.
Bookshops, boutiques, old-fashioned movie theaters – who knows where I’ll find something fun and quirky?
Visit 2 new restaurants a month.
Currently drooling over PVDonuts in Providence and Loco Taqueria in Boston.
Read 10 new books.
On my to-read list: The Queen of the Night, Big Magic, & The Dream Lover.
The fun thing about New England is that all the states are jammed together, so you can take day trips to lots of cool places. Maybe a hike in New Hampshire? A stroll along the coast of Maine?
Picnic on the beach.
My dream day includes a cooler bursting with fresh fruit, La Croix, and sandwiches from the town market, beach chairs, and a radio, starting when the sun is high in the sky and ending post-sunset.
