Things To Do

When planning your visit to campus, check out some of our favorite local spots in the area:

Downtown Andover: About a mile from campus, a quick walk or bike ride will take you to a quant downtown with fabulous restaurants and plenty of quirky boutiques, bookstores, and coffee shops.

Smolak Farm: Fall in New England – at it’s finest! Stop by for an apple cider donut, hay ride, petting zoo, and apple & pumpkin picking.

Harold Parker State Forest: A serene area full of nature trails for hiking & biking, plus camping, picnicking & fishing areas.

The Stevens Coolidge Place: The grounds are perfect for casual walks, picnics, or an afternoon hike on a nature trail. Highlights of the gardens include the frog pond, rose garden, fountains, and the bird watching.

Planning an extended stay? Depending on the season, take a duck tour in Boston, travel north to ski, or visit the beaches of Cape Cod.
