It's the middle of summer, and if you're like me, you have run out of fun things to do.

Tyngsboro has a lot to offer, so here are some suggestions to get you started:

2. Parlee Farms
Parlee Farms is another great attraction in Tyngsboro ~ You can go most of the year, and pick whatever fruits or vegetables are in season. And if you don't feel like picking your own, you can buy fresh from the store!
