Ah, summer. Barbeques, venturing to the beach, spending time out in the sunshine… it’s a great time of year. We thought we’d list some of the fun places in and around Haverhill before the fall is upon us. Art, music, food – you name it; there’s something for everyone!
Summertime is perfect for picking fresh fruit – we are lucky to have such a wonderful farm so close by. Turkey Hill has blueberries and raspberries available for picking, depending on when you go. Keep in mind that come winter months, they are known for their Christmas trees.
Skip’s, a local favorite, is a hamburger joint located in Merrimac, right next to Haverhill. They have got burgers, fries, milkshakes and your traditional fare. On Saturday nights, they have “cruise night”, featuring show cars, music, a raffle, and more.
Chunky’s is a unique movie theater experience. Instead of traditional movie theater seating, moviegoers sit in authentic leather Lincoln Town car recliners alongside tables. They have a menu offering appetizers, meals, drink and desserts, which are delivered right to your table.
This amusement park has attractions for everyone to enjoy, from small rides geared towards little ones, to exhilarating roller coasters… and everything in-between! With free parking and plenty of dining options, it’s a great way to spend the day. There are some water rides and a water park, too, for when a break from the sunshine is needed.
Last fall, Primary Design took a trip to Willows Springs Vineyard, located right here in Haverhill. The family-owned farm winery produces and bottles all handcraft wines on-site. They offer tours, wine tastings (often paired with cheese – yum!) and sell by both the bottle and glass. Stop by and enjoy a taste on the wrap-around deck while enjoying their great view of Haverhill.
