2020 Summer Fun Guide for Families in the Acton-Lexington Area

with COVID updates

By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher June 18, 2020


Updated for 2020 COVID restrictions

We've put together a list of all the fun local things to do and places to go this summer, within the limits of the MA Reopening Plan and social distancing. We're all ready to get out and explore, enjoy the summer, and try to get back to some level of normalcy -- hopefully this list will help keep your days busy and fun.

As always, keep in mind that this edition of Macaroni Kid focuses on Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Carlisle, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln and Maynard. There are tons of activities outside our area but this list is about keeping it LOCAL, EASY and FUN!
