Snow again. And it's supposed to go on for a while. I am officially tired of it, but no one ever asks me what I think before they let the white stuff go.
Salt, sand, shovel, and school cancellations. I guess we'll just have to live with it. Or maybe even try to find some ways to enjoy it. Like sledding.
South of Boston, where I live, we hit places like the Milton Academy, President's Golf Course in Quincy, Kelly Field in Milton, or parts of the Blue Hills.
But there are no shortage of great places in the area. Here are more than 40 suggestions for local places I've found from around the Web and from recommendations by Globe staffers. Please feel free to add to the list.
