Editors’ Choice

Maudslay State Park, Newburyport

Once the sprawling estate of a wealthy New England family, Maudslay today combines the formal beauty of 19th-century gardens with the wilder pleasures of woodland rambles amid a profusion of naturally occurring mountain laurel. Rolling lawns beckon picnickers, an extensive trail network is ideal for strolling, hiking, or horseback riding, and the adjacent Merrimack River offers stunning water views. The site even hosts regular outdoor theater performances. And with 480 acres to explore, the park never gets old. 74 Curzon Mill Rd., Newburyport, 978-465-7223,
