In the Bay State, when the weather heats up, so do your opportunities for fun — in and on the water.

Just take your pick…Rocket down Zoar Gap in a raft with Zoar Outdoor or see nature up close in a kayak from Essex River Basin Adventures; rent a canoe from South Bridge Boat House and paddle up the Concord River to the famous North Bridge; go for a thrilling ride with Cape Cod’s Gold Coast Parasailing; or go sailing on the Charles River in Boston. Massachusetts’ unique location means all the water sports you love are available all summer long!
