It's been a tradition for my family since I was really young. Every year we head to the same clam shack that we have been going to since, who knows when. Nothing says summer more to me than when we head to the Clam Box. And though I while don't love friend clams, I'll enjoy a strip or too, it's worth it to spend the time with people that we love. We've spent many a milestones as this quaint little "box", in fact it's where we told my parents that we we're pregnant... how was that two years ago?!
We come to the Clam Box once a summer. Our afternoon includes waiting in the infamous long lines (though there were none this pas weekend!), devouring some fried goodness, driving through the darling seaside communities, then heading back into town for some ice cream, my favorite part of the whole thing! I look forward to it every year, made sweeter by the darling boy that we get to share it with!
If you're ever in the North Shore area and are hankering for some friend clams then head to the Clam Box. There are tons of options for fried clams in the area but in my opinion, the Clam Box does it right. It's a quintessential New England tradition and I'm thankful that the experience has become a tradition for our family too!
