Posted On: 03/15/2018

Summer is right around the corner and that means it’s time for some day trips! Whether you want to stay local or don’t mind travelling a bit with a Go Boston Shuttle here’s your guide.

1. Canobie Lake Park – Salem, NH

Canobie Lake Park has an array of activities for everyone. Not only do they have tons of roller coasters and rides, they also have a water park and an arcade with prizes galore. If you’d rather catch a show, you can find a concert arena in the middle of the amusement park. Often times there are Michael Jackson cover bands, it’s a great time for the whole family.

2. Six Flags New England – Agawam, MA

If you’re looking for fun time, you can defiantly find it here. Six flags in Agawam is a hot spot for big roller coasters. The Superman ride stands at a whopping 205 feet tall with a 205 foot drop! The Dare Devil Ride puts you in a swing and soars you through the air at 65 mph. The park also comes with lots of great places to eat and a water park.

3. Water Country – Portsmouth, NH

If it’s summer in New England you know it’s going to be humid and very hot, which makes Water Country a very good spot to cool down and enjoy the sunshine. The park has tons of slides, group rides, and an adventure river. If you’d rather relax then grab a float and sit inside the whirlpool. The park is located in Portsmouth which has some of the best dining in NH, so if you’re still hungry after the park – enjoy some time in the city!

4. Yorks Wild Kingdom – York, ME

If you’re looking for a zoo and an amusement park, look no further than Yorks Wild Kingdom! It is a brilliant combination of both. Then though the amusement park is geared towards smaller children, there’s something for people of all ages. The park offers live interactions with the animals, a butterfly kingdom, and educational entertainment.

Whatever adventure you end up taking this summer, let Go Boston Shuttle help get you there. Reserve an amusement park shuttle today!
