One Tank Trips
That Makes Cents: One Tank Trips
A trip to wine country is closer than you think. New England is full of picturesque wineries like the Nashoba Valley Winery in Bolton, 43 miles from Boston.
Richard Pelletier, Nashoba Valley Winery Owner
"A lot of people come out here on weekends, buy a bottle of wine, get some food and have a picnic."
At the 52 acre winery and orchard you can enjoy tastings, tours, and even fruit picking.
If you want to head to the water, travel 44 miles from Boston to Plum Island.
Graham Taylor, Refuge Manager
"A lot of people like to come here because these are just spectacular beaches; they are very quiet and clean."
At the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, there's more than just sunbathing. Visitors can fish, bird watch, and hike along the magnificent nature trails.
For your family's wild side, head to Mendon and the Southwick's Zoo. Its 46 miles from Boston. Get up close and personal with some giant tortoises or hop on an elephant or even a camel!
These are just a few choices to make family-time fun time, on less than a tank of gas!
Now "That Makes Cents."
