I am an adventurer to the core and I love the thrill of finding new and beautiful places. Here are a few (somewhat) local destinations I have my eye on for spring/summer 2016:
Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens – Boothbay, Maine
I have heard the Maine Botanical Gardens are stunning. I will most definitely pack my trusty camera and head up Route One to Boothbay for some time among the flowers.
The Crane Estate – Ipswich, Massachusetts
This estate looks breathtaking, surrounded by ocean and sprawling lawns. I have wanted to visit this property for quite some time and would love to roam the grounds and see what Crane has to offer.
Coppal House Farm – Lee, New Hampshire
This special farm hosts a Sunflower Festival each year in mid-August. Their fields seem to go for miles (6 acres, actually) and are filled with endless tall, bright flowers all reaching for the sun. A portion of admission is donated to a local charity, how awesome!
Brooklyn Bridge Park – Brooklyn, New York
This park has been in many a movie scene, creating an feverish desire for me to frolick where the stars have been. You can’t beat the view either – a massive cable bridge, the East River and an area rich with culture and history.
Fuller Gardens – North Hampton, New Hampshire
North Hampton sits snugly against the coastline nearest to my favorite beach. I have driven by the estate many times and have yet to enter the gardens. My love for flowers has reached an all time high and I know this location will not disappoint.
