Nantasket Beach

A beach day is always family-friendly, but add in Paragon Boardwalk’s old-fashioned carousel and a toes-in-the-sand beer garden for the grownups, and you have the makings of one epic summer afternoon. If you’re feeling adventurous, sign the kids (and yourself) up for standup paddleboard lessons with Paddle Surf MA.
