South Dartmouth, MA: Shines in the Summer!!

IMG_2410Time to get organized so you can spend as much time as possible outside in the up coming months.  The south coast is filled with outside activities.  After a long, cold, windy, snowy winter, even the hardiest New Englander is eager for a little warmth and sunshine so they can get outside and enjoy the varied activities that the south coast has to offer.

If boating is your thing then it doesn’t get any better than Padanaram Harbor, home to the renowned New Bedford Yacht Club.  Whether you want to water ski on the quieter inner harbor, and perhaps wave to your friends sitting on the deck of their waterfront cottage, or sale over to Cuttyhunk or another of the Elizabeth Islands with their pristine coves – it is hard to beat the boating in Buzzard’s Bay.

Launching your kayak or canoe can happen at many different spots throughout Dartmouth, North or South.  Meander through small tributaries or enjoy the Westport or Slocum Rivers.  Watch the incredible osprey build their nest and hunt while paddling along Dike Creek.

If you prefer to be in the water, instead of on top of the water, then head to the beaches of South Dartmouth.  Round Hill, Apponagansett Park or Jones Park & Beach are all public beaches available to residence with a town sticker.  Round Hill with its long sandy shore line, Apponagansett offers protected inner harbor swimming & paly area with swings, basketball & jungle gyms, or Jones Beach fronting on Clark’s Cove with picnic areas for a day at the beach.  Also, easily accessible is Demarest Lloyd State Park, as well as, Horseneck Beach State Reservation (in neighboring town of Westport) – both not to be missed!!

Vacation right in your own town….or make arrangements to visit our wonderful town.  Maybe you would like to rent a water front home for a week or two to take full advantage of everything Dartmouth has to offer.  Perhaps is it time for you to move to a large space to raise your growing family.  Whatever your needs – Dartmouth has it all!!
