Enjoying the Coast

In Every Season

Gray’s Beach Small, approachable - and impeccable - family beach includes basketball, pickle ball, and tennis courts. $30 for the season. kingstonrec.com

All the towns of the South Shore wrap around the coast, marshes, inlets, and harbors with ample town forests and parks in between. No matter the season, you'll find your favorite place for a morning walk, dog walk, picnic, sunrise, or sunset. There's really no limit – still, others are unmarked, and off the beaten path so keep your eyes open as you venture – but we suggest these favorites:
