South Shore Family Adventures

We show you the best hiking trails and outdoor adventures in southeastern New England, so you can get outside, get some fresh air, and have fun with your kids, without the screens.

It’s not just the pandemic.

Our kids are spending too much time indoors and behind screens. And as parents, we’re often paying more attention to our screens than our kids. At South Shore Family Adventures, we’ll show you easy, convenient hiking trails and other adventures right in your backyard, so you can get outside, get some fresh air, and have fun with your kids – without the screens.

Hiking Trails

If you’re wondering where to go, what to do, or how to entertain your kids without screens, we’ve got you covered. Southeastern Massachusetts has hundreds of hiking trails and other adventures we’ve been doing with our families. Now, we’re sharing them with you. We’re just getting started – so keep checking back for more trails!


We love hiking and being outdoors, but we’re also about other types of adventures. Looking for a good spot for a beach day? What about exploring the waterfront in towns along the coast? We’ll show you some great close-by spots your family will want to keep visiting.

P.I.N.T. Score

We may have used our love of craft beer to inspire the name for our unique rating system – The P.I.N.T. SCORE. We use this rating system for each place we visit, so you’ll be able to tell at a glance whether a trail or adventure is right for you and your family.
