Warm-Weather Celebrations to Try at Retirement Communities In MA

Take in the Fresh Air and Warmer Temperatures


As Spring progresses and summer arrives, the frigid Massachusetts temperature begin to warm, and everyone starts to join in on outdoor events. At our MA 55 and older communities, we offer various amenities and opportunities for our residents to enjoy the fresh air with weekly group excursions. Our activity calendar is packed with social, educational, creative, and spiritual activities to delight in. However, we understand if you prefer to enjoy what’s nearby the community in Methuen, so we’ve put together five activities you can enjoy starting this spring near The Woods At Merrimack, one of the best senior living communities near Boston.

5 Activities To Enjoy Near Our Senior Community in Methuen

  • Hit the Water on a Day or Evening Cruise
    Boston Harbor is absolutely humming with activity during the warmer months, so why not take part in the action! Take in the scenery on a daytime sightseeing boat tour, or book a dinner cruise to enjoy some delicious locally sourced seafood along with the sunset. Or take in the wildlife with a whale watching cruise! The New England Aquarium has partnered with Boston Harbor City Cruises to create the ultimate Boston whale-watching experience. The cruises conveniently depart from Central Wharf and give visitors the opportunity to see humpback whales, finback whales, minke whales, and even pilot whales and the endangered right whale! This is sure to be a popular activity, so don’t wait to book your tickets.
  • Delight Your Taste Buds At The New Food Truck Program
    The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy has announced a 2022 schedule for food trucks to join together beginning in April. Try different cuisines along The Greenway’s 1.5 mile-long park; check their schedule to see when your favorites will be there!
  • Organize a Field Day
    Nothing takes you back to the good old days like a traditional field day! Get a big group of friends together, split up into teams, head to a local park, and enjoy some summer-camp-style fun as seniors. Consider including competitions like three-legged races, water balloon fights, a hula hoop competition, water gun tag, and more. You can even tie-dye some t-shirts to commemorate the occasion! Before you leave, double check to make sure your activities are allowed at your chosen outdoor recreation area. And make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen, snacks, and water!
  • Plan an Outdoor Dining Tour
    One of the benefits of senior living in Massachusetts is the easy access to incredible restaurants in the Boston area. And during the warmer months, nothing beats dining outdoors! Grab some of your close friends and plan your very own outdoor dining tour. You can plan a list of outdoor dining to try all summer long. Or to make it even more fun, set a date and have each person choose a restaurant for a single course of a meal. Enjoy appetizers at one restaurant, entrees at another, and dessert at another.
  • Enjoy A Swan Boat Ride
    Take in the beauty of the Boston Public Garden during a 12-15 minute swan boat ride in the garden’s lagoon! A driver will pedal you around the pond, where you’ll not only get to enjoy the beautiful scenery, but also see the ducks & swans who live there. The swan boat attraction begins operating the third week of April through the third week of September.
