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.

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.

Dan and Marilyn’s mission at e-Awakening.com is “to tell green stories and to get the messages out that need to be told. Our major focuses are on the “Preservation of Nature and Protection of Resources” while building a sustainable, healthy world. We want to shine the spotlight on the individuals, groups and organizations that are making differences every day. This is a very important part of  e-Awakening.  Our aim is to tell these positive stories that inspire us and we hope they will also inspire you our viewers.”

Gateways To Nature

Local Gateways to Nature is about “recognizing the value of open spaces and land we have in our own backyard. Focusing on grassroots initiatives that have taken place in the area, this new page fosters an understanding of what Local Gateways to Nature is about.  Here you’ll find links to other related pages including ones about Friends of Conservation and another with video stories showcasing what some people have done in their communities. You’ll definitely be inspired to be part of preserving our precious natural areas.”

Green Community Connections

Green Community Connections is “about communities working together, sharing information about how they’re preserving the remaining forests, wetlands and meadows in their towns and how we can connect these conserved areas between towns.  We’re looking forward to hearing what’s happening in your community so we can share it continuing to connect with each other.”

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 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.
