We moved to Dracut 11 years ago from the city and one of my favorite things about Dracut is how scenic it is. A drive on Marsh Hill road gives you views of rolling greens and the beautiful Oganowski Farm. On Wheeler road, St. Francis Church sits perfectly on top of a hill that is tranquil in summer and a great place to find kids sledding in the winter.
Brox Farm on Broadway Road is a great place for all of your garden needs and fresh produce through the summer. The staff are so knowledgable and eager to help you! Of course you have to stop at Shaw farm for the freshest ice cream around and pick up the absolute best chocolate milk in the world!
Of course with three kids in school here, I have to praise all of the wonderful teachers in our town who are so dedicated to our kids! Thank you!
Thanks for sending these pictures Meg!
