Think that going the beach and boat rides are only summer activities? Nope! Here are three fun, outdoor “summer” programs that are perfect for the transition into winter:

Start your beach-filled weekend by helping to clean up Revere Beach on Saturday, November 10 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. As part of the Treasures from Trash program, all litter picked up from the beach will be used to create a sculpture displayed at the Revere Beach National Sand Sculpting Festival this coming July.

Can’t get enough of the sand and the surf? Visit Scusset Beach on Sunday, November 11 for the Discover the Winter Coast interpretive program. From 9:30 am-11:00 am, join the group for a walk on the beach, exploring the dunes, canal, and more!

If sand isn’t your thing, but you still love the water, jump on board the Boston Harbor Islands winter cruises! Kick off the winter cruise season with the Veterans Day Cruise on Sunday, November 11. Departing from Quincy Shipyard at 10:00 am and returning at 2:30 pm or from Long Wharf in Boston at 11:00 am and returning at 2:00 pm, the cruise stops on Georges Island for a tour of Fort Warren.
