For those looking to spend quality time with the kids, make a bee-line for the various child-friendly attractions. If you’re intrigued by the animal kingdom be sure to add the Andover Bird Sanctuary in Andover on your itinerary.
Wilmington is a place of proud sporting traditions. Spend a few hours in the stands of nearby Edward A. LeLacheur Park, Lowell, home to the Lowell Spinners baseball team in summer and the Umass Lowell River Hawks in spring. Relive the match’s highlights over a few drinks with local fans after the full-time siren blows in a nearby pub.
At the end of a long day enjoying Wilmington, relax for the night at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. Take your pick from the Red Roof PLUS+ Boston - Woburn, the Hilton Boston/Woburn, or the Crowne Plaza Boston - Woburn.
