  • Widow's Walk Golf Course
    Winds from the Atlantic Ocean sweep across Widow's Walk Golf Course, almost as a constant reminder that nature was here first. The 18-hole, par 72 course opened in 1997 to national acclaim thanks to its environmentally friendly design and commitment to protect the site's wildlife. Evidence of that commitment surrounds golfers as they weave past undisturbed wetlands and peer across the landscape from elevated tees. The course's designers plotted holes and fairways around the property's natural contours instead of digging up the land or hiring a dinosaur to come and walk around for a while. Despite its friendly relationship with Mother Nature, the course may not be so friendly to scores. That's especially true of the 13th hole, which is widely considered the course's stiffest challenge due to its narrow fairway, water hazards, and red stakes lining both sides. Course at a Glance * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total of 6,403 yards from the tips * Four sets of tees per hole * Course rating of 71.2 * Course slope of 129

  • South Shore Natural Science Center
    Animal Planet's top wildlife diplomat Jeff Corwin was the driving force behind the EcoZone, which gives museum-goers an unmatched interactive look at southeastern Massachusetts' ecosystems with meticulously recreated versions of the wetlands, woodlands, and meadows. The woodland area boasts a life-sized replica of a red maple tree that sits above a turtle and frog pond, where endearing amphibians and their reptile counterparts entrance audiences as they munch on vegetation, swim at a turtle's pace, and compete to see who can croak their way through the entire Greek alphabet. Little kids can watch the wildlife from peepholes inside the hollow log that connects both ponds. Likewise, the meadow includes a charming wood bridge and complete absence of unseen hunters gunning for Bambi's mom. The EcoZone provides shelter for a menagerie of local creatures, including raccoons, an albino rat snake, a garter snake, and an eastern box turtle—and it's not limited solely to day-dwellers. The EcoZone's Night Time exhibit lets future forest preservationists take an up-close look into what the world's nocturnal population does regularly, even if it is mostly just hanging out in diners in Edward Hopper paintings. Additionally, the South Shore Science Center has six outdoor trails featuring Story Walks that tell tales on signs as you walk along.

  • Chasin Tail Charters
    A love of the deep sea and adventure was instilled in Captain Jeff DePersia at a young age, when his charter-fishermen relatives would take him out on trips across New England waters. Captain Jeff continued to fish throughout his life, gradually gaining a reputation as one of the most successful fishers of cod and tuna on the Cape and catching the eye of reporters from the Republican Herald. Today, the US Coast Guard–licensed captain shares his fishing expertise with others, captaining fishing charters across Stellwagen Bank and surrounding waters. Upon the sturdy docks of the captain's classic 35-foot T Jason Downeast boat, Jeff and his crew encounter an abundance of water dwellers, including tuna, striped bass, and occasionally Jimmy Hoffa in his secret submarine.
