1.  Six Flags New England

3. Gardner Ten Pins

Going to Gardner Ten Pins is another good place to go on a rainy day. It might be a bit pricey though. The pricing is around 30 dollars on the weekend for an hour. It is a good place to go for the day with fun for all ages and various additions such as an arcade, a bar, and a grill.

 

4. APEX

7. Sleepover with friends

Having a sleepover is a great thing to do with your friends. You can bake, watch movies, go on a walk, and play truth or dare. The best part, it can be completely free! Hanging out with your friends is great for your mental health and it helps get you out of the house.

 

8. Go on a hike

Going on a hike is a great way to exercise and enjoy the sunny weather. Spending time outside reduces stress and keeps your body healthy. Some hiking trails near Ashburnham are Dunn State Park, Leominster State Forest, and Wachusett Mountain.

 

9. Swimming

Swimming is a great way to stay active and exercise. Dunn State Park and Crocker Pond are good places to go for swimming. Dunn State Park is in Gardner and it is completely free. Crocker Pond is in Westminster and is for Westminster residents and their guests only. If your friend has a pool, you could have a pool party with your friends aswell.

 

10. Camping

Bring a tent, smores, and sleeping bags to go camping with your family or friends! You can go to a campground, or even set up a tent in your backyard for free. Cook some hot dogs or smores on the campfire and look up at the stars. Enjoy the night in nature.
