Baby Beach is a great day-trip to make if you've rented a car in Aruba. It’s located on the southern tip of the island in San Nicolas. Baby Beach gets its name from the tranquil cove of water that surrounds the beach being so calm that even young children are safe to swim in it. The drive down from the hotel area takes around 40 minutes. It’s a fun ride down stopping at the shops in Oranjestad or checking out one of the more local restaurants once you get south of the airport. Directions in Aruba are pretty easy to follow. There are only a few highway-type roads and because it’s a small island, you can usually find the water as a point of reference if you get off-route. Baby beach definitely has a unique look to it, as the rough ocean flows into a protected, horseshoe shaped cove where everyone swims around. Because there are only a few hotels nearby, the beach has a local flair. However you’ll see plenty of tourists and guided tours as well. There are als
Although Summer is already over, we still enjoy going to the beach. One of our favorite and also most convenient locations is Wessagusset Beach in North Weymouth. The stone wall of the beach runs along Fort Points Road where you'll find a small cove, with parking as well. The beach is relative small and very rocky, so you probably won't find yourself walking barefoot in the sand. However it is the perfect beach to catch some rays, otherwise enjoy the sunset. With Wessagusset Yacht Club close by, you will always see a few boats out in the water. Snapper Blue The beach is also an attraction for some fisherman with striper and bluefish along the shores. But rumor has it that fishing has been slow this year. Our favorite part about this beach is that it faces west overlooking the Boston skyline. So we've seen a few amazing sunsets and views from Wessagusset. Here are some of many more to come! Waves before a Storm
In planning our weekend adventures, we often overlook the abundance of places we have yet to visit in one of America's largest and most historical cities, Boston, MA. All too often we turn a blind eye to Boston's many amazing attractions while immersing ourselves in daily routines. However, we found that being tourists in our own city, has lead to some of our best travel experiences! That including our recent invitation this past weekend to tour Boston's only 360 degree view of the city skyline at the Skywalk Observatory . Located 52 floors up in Boston's Prudential Center , the Skywalk arguably has the city's most picturesque panoramas. The observatory is open 7 days a week between 10 am and 8 pm (in the Summer it stays open later until 10 pm) with admission being $17 per adult. We timed our visit for 4 pm so we could catch the sunset over the city. Friends- Samantha and Jordan at the Skywalk Observatory Aside from just the views, th
