i can't believe that it took me 20 years to discover the Fells Reservation, which is a huge open space taking up most of stoneham and part of winchester and woburn... beautiful hiking trails with amazing views of the city. it's so important to be out with the trees! unfortunately the highway bisects it, so you can only do a loop on one side or the other, but it's a beautiful place to spend the day.
i also JUST discovered Carson Beach in south boston. how did i not know about this?!
it is huge, not crowded, accessible by public transportation, and although the sand is a little sharp-shell-y, and the water probably not the most sparkling, who cares when it's 97 degrees!?! if you don't have a car to get to the north shore beaches or the cape, like me, it's a great option.
