Kane's World Famous D

Kane's Donuts looks like an unassuming house, but once inside the atmosphere becomes that of a friendly neighborhood diner that has not changed since the shop was founded in 1955. The donuts at Kane's have gained a reputation as being hands-down the best in the region, and some critics have even argue the whole country. Regardless, anyone who is even near the area should make a trip to try one. The donut varieties are common, but the tastes are extraordinary, with the biggest seller being the glazed donut. Go early to get a fresh one still warm from the fryer to start your day.

Rumney Marsh Reservat

Residents of Saugus consider themselves lucky to have the Rumney Marsh Reservation right in town. Located where the fertile Saugus and Pines River estuaries spill into Broad Sound, the reservation serves not only as a nature preserve, but also a 600-acre recreation site for humans. The area provides some of the best bird watching in the region with many native and migratory species. There is also a network of paths along the water and through the forest that are ideal for a leisurely stroll or scenic bike ride. You will also find boat ramps where fishermen can harvest the multitudes of nonprotected marine life in the estuary waters.

The Saugus Iron Works

The Saugus Iron Works gives a sense of just how far back the history of European settlement goes in the region. The site was originally constructed in the then-young Massachusetts colony in 1646. At the time, the facility utilized state-of-the-art technology and was powered by seven large water wheels in the nearby river. As the first iron works of its type in United States, the site now has a home on the National Register of Historic Places and has been largely refurbished to teach locals and young people about the life in colonial New England. Visiting at a time when reenactments are taking place is recommended.
