When you’re ready to soak up some sun, head to the Bay Circuit Trail this May. The nearly 200-mile trail stretches from the north to the south shore of Massachusetts, with the Andover and North Andover route covering 19.1 miles. Some sections of this impressive trail network are bike-friendly, allowing kids to ride bicycles without crossing any streets. For a real treat, hike to a secluded spot and enjoy a romantic picnic with that special someone.
