If you’re like me, and you have young children or grandchildren, you’ve probably exhausted most short day trip venues. Don’t get me wrong, there are so many tremendous places to visit around this area and I feel incredibly fortunate to have such fun, educational, and diverse opportunities for summer fun at our doorstep! We certainly have our favorite stomping grounds that never get old, and that we’ll visit time and time again, but every once in a while, we plain ole want something new. I feel compelled to add that the boys have also had plenty of down-time by just hitting the beach, riding bikes, and playing in the yard….but, we like to throw a day trip into the mix once a week.
With a seek and conquer attitude, we hit the road on Monday morning, determined to visit someplace we’ve never been.
Destination: Kimball Farm, Westford.
Just a mere few minutes over an hour away….and loads of fun. Oh, and clean! Our choice was a big success!
Kimball Farm has a bit of everything. Bumper Boats, mini golf, a driving range, Pitch and Putt golf, an indoor arcade, batting cages, a small animal experience highlighting some rescued and orphaned animals, a seafood shack, and, of course, ice cream!
I chose Monday because I had to head “up the line” to Danvers for an errand anyway…so, it was really only a 40 minute drive. Once there, we spent about 3 hours having outdoor fun. We could have easily stayed longer, but we love the driving range and batting cages at Richardson’s Dairy so we skipped those options and focused our fun elsewhere…promising them another trip to Richardson’s soon.
The Bumper Boats were the obvious winner for the boys. I gave the win to the fact that the place was well-cared for, clean, and nicely landscaped and decorated. A big family win all around! Check it out for sure if you don’t mind a short drive!
