Find Your Island Vibe This Summer At Nashoba Valley; Tiki Bar, Volleyball, Festivals
A tropical vacation might not be in the budget this summer, but you can still enjoy an island vibe at Nashoba Valley, 25 miles from Boston in Westford, Mass.
The Sunset Tiki Bar and Grill is the perfect spot to meet up with friends, have a relaxing drink, or dine outside on the beach. The menu features lobster rolls, steamed clams, island pizza, jerk chicken wings, ribs, sandwiches, and salads.
“While the kids are swimming, you can put your feet in the sand, listen to great music, and enjoy a signature Mai Tai,” Nashoba’s Pam Fletcher, a former Olympic downhiller, told SnoCountry.com.
Kick back with a cold brew in an Adirondack chair on the beach and listen to live entertainment under the stars, every Tuesday through Saturday night.
Earn those beverages at the Tiki Trail 5K Run offered most Wednesday nights through July 22. Explore the forests and rolling terrain around Nashoba. “This is a social race, where runners can make it what they want,” Fletcher told us. Registration includes raffle prizes and post-race food and drinks.
Theme Nights feature additional specials and drinks Monday through Thursday nights. Themes include Family Fun-Day Mondays, Ragin' Cajun Tuesdays with late night Karaoke Tuesdays, Mexican Fiesta Wednesdays and LobsterFest Thursdays.
The hugely popular Nashoba Valley Summer Volleyball League started as way for winter ski racers to keep that competitive spirit alive. Casual as well as experienced player compete once a week throughout the summer. Afterwards, players enjoy an après party at The Outlook to catch the results, enjoy a cold one, and win fabulous prizes in the nightly raffle.
