Nearby Outings

Many of us are staying home a lot, and we often yearn for the days when we could go away for a few days, or even longer. Luckily, we have many attractive places nearby that we can visit on a day trip. This month we suggest a “get-away” to Castle Island, located on Pleasure Bay in South Boston. It is a short drive from Brookline (there is ample parking) and it is also accessible by the #9 bus from Copley. A 1.75 mile path takes you all around the 22-acre island featuring Fort Independence (built in 1634). For those who don’t walk a lot, there are well-placed benches to relax, enjoy the ocean view, and people-watch. At the parking lot you will find the famous Sullivan’s Restaurant serving take-out sandwiches and snacks. For more information click here.
