This is an awesome place to hike. I am an avid hiker and it is peaceful, clean and just a great way to take in nature. Pack a picnic and bring the family and friends. Typically sanctuaries do not allow dogs.

This park is large but we went because you can easily get your kayak in here and the kayaking is excellent! Go around the marinas or even better in the marsh. When we got back from kayaking did a little bicycling. Very nice.

We've been here a couple times and it features a huge bay that's great for kayaking as long as you get in early as parking can be an issue.

Found this place by accident a few years back ,and have been back at least a dozen times. Like to go clamming and snorkel.Pretty shallow for the most part.A lot of boat traffic during peak seasons.

According to the website, dogs are allowed only on certain trails at Kettle Pond. TA won't allow me to post a link to it for you, but if you google it I'm sure you will find it.
