When looking for a home or a second home, location is key to the experience you will have. Ipswich MA, a town located along the beautiful North Shore of metro Boston, is not only a picturesque place to reside, but is also a town with bountiful attractions and some of the most desirable scenic views. Luckily, for those who reside within the luxurious golf community of Turner Hill, everything that the town of Ipswich has to offer is just minutes away. For The Residences at Turner Hill, the desirable North Shore lifestyle goes beyond the columned entrance of the community and into the charming New England town of Ipswich.

As the summer moves on and we head into the warmth of July and August, Ipswich has the perfect way to beat the heat and relax. With white sand stretching over four miles along the coast, Crane Beach is one of the most scenic beaches in New England. There is even an annual “Sand Blast” event, which showcases sand castle building in August. If you’re looking for more of an adventure, there is always The Ipswich River, where kayak and canoe rentals are available for an afternoon of exploring.

And for those overcast or rainy days, Ipswich has museums such as the Whipple & Heard Houses, and the Ipswich museum, which showcase fine art and the history of the community. The Great House at Castle Hill is also a great attraction with historical background. You can stroll through the Italian gardens around the mansion, and also take a guided tour around the estate.

If you’re looking for something more active and adventurous while in Ipswich, consider checking out Wolf Hollow, or the Bay Circuit Trail. At Wolf Hollow, you get the rare opportunity to observe wolves in their natural habitat. You can also hike, bike, and horseback ride the Bay Circuit Trail, which runs 11 miles though Ipswich. The trail holds scenic views and lush greenery, along with trail marks for your safety.

And the most important part of Ipswich – the food. The Salt Kitchen and Rum Bar, is one of Ipswich’s local gems with great brewery selections and dishes cooked with fresh ingredients. If you’re more in the mood for some comfort food though, the Hart House is the go to place. You can grab a hearty meal in a cozy, local tavern.

If you’re a seafood fan, during the summer the Ipswich Clambake Co and the Clambox of Ipswich are great places to grab a plate of surf and turf. Whether it’s clams or baked haddock, they have your seafood cravings covered.

And to top it off, Zumis Espresso and Ice Cream is the perfect place to grab a coffee or your favorite flavor of ice cream. With delicious, fair trade coffee, and creamy ice cream with tons of great flavors, Zumis is a one-stop place for all to indulge!

So, if you’re a resident at Turner Hill you really get the best of both worlds. Travel outside of the historic 311 acre community and you’ll find yourself surrounded by attractions and activities! No matter your age, ability or interests, the community and The Residences at Turner Hill can offer living in a prosperous community and so much more.
