Pack a Picnic, Explore and Meander Along these Hidden Gems on the South Shore
1.  Weir River Farm and Whitney and Thayer woods, which is near Weir River Farm – Hingham and Cohasset.  I love this place because they offer an outside Story Hour for little kids every Wednesday June to September, 10 – 11 a.m.  After story time, wander through the trails off the farm and into Whitney and Thayer woods where you’ll find bridges over streams, carefully sited benches, a hermit’s shelter, and secluded holly grove. 
2.  World’s End in Hingham.  You’ll feel like you’re miles away from the “real world” at this unique destination featuring rolling hills, rocky shorelines, sweeping views of the Boston skyline and tree-lined carriage paths.
3.  Francis William Bird Park inWalpole has meandering pathways and artisan-built stone bridges at this family-friendly park of open fields, groves of trees, and frog ponds.
4.  Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset, a beautiful organic working farm.  Make sure you print out clues to the hidden Quest – South Shore Quests  – http://www.southshorequests.org – to help your kids explore the farm.  Questing is a summer “must do” with your kids.
5.  South Shore Natural Science Center and Hornstra Farms in Norwell.  Explore animals and trails and get ice cream after Hornstra Farms.
