For the past five years I’ve religiously exercised the gym three times a week, but lately I’ve been bored. After getting back from my trip last month, I was itching to get outside more often. So when Enterprise contacted me to try out their new CarShare program, I had the perfect motivator to get out of the city and get hiking.
I grew up playing in the woods, but after a decade of city living, I have to admit that I’ve grown a bit detached from nature. Wanting to reconnect, I looked up hiking spots around Boston and found this great list from Boston.com on 15 hikes around Boston. My husband and I decided on the Noanet Woodlands in Dover, about thirty minutes from Boston. With over 17 miles of trails, Noanet was a good fit for us as beginners. I also wanted to go there because it promised a view of the Boston skyline.
For my driving option, I picked a cute little Fiat 500, which was waiting for me in Central Square. I have to admit that years of listening to Car Talk already made the Fiat decision for me. Enterprise CarShare is a lot like Zipcar and they have cars parked throughout Boston and Cambridge. When I arrived, all I had to do was unlock to the door with my membership card, hop in and drive off.
Before going on our hike, David and I stopped at the Dover Cafe and Deli. I tried their veggie sub, which was quite good! I ate half there and saved the other half for after our hike.
We had a great day on the trails! As for difficulty, we went on two trails and they were both fairly easy so if you’re going for a day in the park, I definitely recommend it. I’m not sure if some of the other trails are more advanced, but it’s definitely worth looking into!
Enterprise CarShare in Boston
Enterprise CarShare is currently offering a $75 in driving credits when you sign up for their car sharing program, which you can do here. That amounts to about 5 to 6 hours of driving time depending on which car you select. Perfect for a day trip! I definitely recommend them whether you’re looking to ditch your old car for the weekend or don’t have a car and want to get out of the city for some fun.
