The Boston Globe – So Long Summer: Ideas for (unofficially) the last weekend of the season
By Lauren Daley Globe Correspondent
The unofficial last weekend of summer is upon us, and we’ve got a few days left to savor the season. From stand-up paddleboarding on Lake Champlain to worth-the-trip ice cream in Maine, we’ve rounded up some of the best spots in New England for one last hurrah.
Paddle and pedal like a champ
One of the best ways to take in the beauty of Lake Champlain is to stand on it. Rent a stand-up paddleboard, or a kayak or canoe, from Community Sailing Center, and paddle the majestic waters of Burlington, Vt. Look out for Champ, Vermont’s own fabled version of Loch Ness’s Nessie. 234 Penny Lane. 802-864-2499. communitysailingcenter.org.
