Coolidge Reservation
Ocean views from sweeping lawns and sheltered places in the woods out of the wind provide cozy cover while you drink from a thermos of something warm.

Take them to Paradise, a parcel of land where huge hemlocks grow,  listening for sounds of winter birds playing in the branches above.

Lowell Holly
Great place for a doggy date, pup-friendly trails, and sandy freshwater beach. Red berries could be on display amongst the groves of American holly trees, Ilex opaca.

Take a Nordic ski lesson with your love or hit the trails with some snowshoes. Bring your own snowshoes or rentals available too.

Pegan Hill
Magnificent views from the top of Pegan, a classic glacial drumlin make this close-to-Boston site worth braving the cold.
