New Wrangler, easy local ride for kids?

Hi!

I'm picking up my first JKU Sport S tomorrow from Raynham and driving it home to Stoughton. It's stock with an LSD and the OEM tires. I know nothing about off roading other than (hopefully) common sense.

Is there anywhere nearby I can ride legally that is easy to go without a buddy Jeep? I don't need deep mud, steep hills, rocks, or anything hard. Just something I can bounce the kids over that you couldn't do in a minivan. Can be as short as 1/4 mile of a bad access road where the owners won't get annoyed.

Thanks in advance for all suggestions!

In case someone else buys a Jeep in the area, I went to Freetown/Fall River State Park. Dirt roads with enough mud and water to require an actual 4x4 with some ground clearance. Kids loved it. Got mud all over the new Wrangler.

I imagine when everything dries out for the summer and they regrade the roads it night turn dull but for now it was fun.
