Borderland State Park

The 3-story home built by artist and suffragist Blanche Ames and her botanist husband Oakes, is the centerpiece of this park. Visitors can also walk and horseback ride, fish, canoe, ice-skate and sled.

Borderland State Park has easy trails for walkers and more challenging ones for hikers. I took the easy 3 mile walk which is a slightly uneven unpaved road that includes woodlands, three ponds, interesting rock formations, meadows and farmland. The mansion was closed during my visit, but the exterior is interesting and worth inspecting. The park is large and uncrowded. There is a visitor center with restrooms and trail maps. Overall a top walkers destination. Bring insect repellent.

Blue Hills Reservation

These seven thousand acres span six Massachusetts cities and towns.

Reviewed By Leintwardine - Leintwardine, United Kingdom

Came here in late Feb while visiting family and friends and there was still some snow from the previous week which made some of the rocks quite slippery, so make sure you wear suitable boots at this time of year as there was also a lot of water from melting.
The trail we used was great fun as it wound it's way between the rocks and there are some great views of Boston and the surrounding coast and countryside.
If you enjoy walking with a little rock climbing then this is a must when visiting the area.

The Hall at Patriot Place

The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon is an exciting, innovative and interactive, modern museum experience for all ages. The Kraft family, in an effort to preserve team history and honor the greatest Patriots of all-time, built and opened The Hall in 2008. It has since undergone championship renovations to enhance its Super Bowl Experience exhibit, which takes guests inside the team’s five Super Bowl wins. It includes the sparkling Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophies and championship rings, an interactive that allows guests to virtually make Malcolm Butler’s Super Bowl XLIX-clinching interception, and the new Anatomy of a Comeback area that breaks down the Super Bowl LI win. The Hall regularly adds to its collection and changes out artifacts and exhibits to ensure a fresh experience.

Our visit here offered this long time Patriots fan an opportunity to witness the journey of this team from the days when they were the less than successful Boston Patriots with no permanent home field to the present day when Super Bowl victories have become...MoreThank you for your kind review, Bob! Our goal is to connect the fans to the history of the team both past and present, and we're so glad to hear you enjoyed your experience. Go Patriots!

Francis William Bird Park

Stroll meandering pathways and cross artisan-built stone bridges at this family-friendly park of open fields, groves of trees, and frog ponds.

Reviewed By dave d - Bradford, Massachusetts

I did a nice 3 mile run around the park which basically meant I ran on every trail. There is a nice network of trails, some stone, some dirt, some grass. You can wander all around the park and never get too far from where you parked. There were a lot of interesting bridges and the gates at different entrances were unusual. I used the port-a-john near the tennis courts and was happily surprised to find one of the cleanest public restrooms I've ever used (and I'm out there a LOT). :-)

Fuller Craft Museum

Reviewed By Laurie K - Milton, Massachusetts

This place is such a gem. More people need to frequent it! Not only is it set in a beautiful environment with a lake replete with classic swans swimming, but there's an outdoors sculpture/sanctuary type landscape as well as the beautiful architecture of the main exhibit building itself. The exhibits I saw recently were outstanding. Old glass repurposed in wonderful and fanciful ways as well as an outstanding modern tapestry exhibit. There's always some community based exhibits as well as the museum seems committed to partnering with the local schools and children to support artistic development. There's a delightful walkout onto a terrace which sits right on the lake. You feel as if you are in a floating Japanese style space. Tho the snack cafe wasn't opened when we visited it seems a perfect place to sit with or without food. There is ample free parking and its so refreshing to be outside the city in a short, traffic free drive to see good art/crafts. Can't say enough good things about this place!

A coworker organized a glass blowing party here at Luke Adams Glass, and we had a great time. The staff assist you with creating a beautiful glass pumpkin, paper weight, jewelry, or some other kind of item. With their assistance you are able to learn the ropes and create a beautiful product at the end...safely. We had a great time and I love the glass items they create here.

Ward's Berry Farm

Reviewed By Kiev_Traveller - Kiev, Ukraine

We were offered an unprofessional staff of Facebooking Teenagers to make us $10 sandwiches that were not so great. Just another example of overpriced foodstuffs masquerading as "organic" or "home-made" most likely made or grown by a 3rd grader.

If your the type of person that enjoys paying too much for something then this is your new favorite place. $18 frozen pie that was basically made with canned pumpkin pie filling or tasted just the same as. Pimple faced teen employees struggling to understand basic customer service and ringing up items.
"Organic" potatoes half of which are rotted through and through but pristine exterior?
Can't really think of anything to recommend other than if you like buying lemonade to support little kids playing at business people I guess you might walk away from here feeling good about being fleeced.

I brought my daughter here because it was raining out. We got the wristband with the general admission and plaster painting, laser tag, and unlimited bowling. My daughter had a great time, the play place is fun and there's 1 indoor bounce house. We thought there would be more bounce houses but regardless she had a blast and made new friends. Its a great way to spend time if its not so nice outside. I wish we didn't live so far away or I would have signed her up for their summer camp program!

This aerial forest adventure is fun, exciting and safe for all participants. We provide a harness and equipment and give you a safety briefing that demonstrates how to climb and zip line in the Park. There are 10 separate trails of varying levels of difficulty ranging from beginner to advanced. Every trail has a zip-line! Incredible fun for everyone - families and groups. Come spend the day at Greater Boston's #1 outdoor adventure attraction!

The name says it -- tree top adventures climbing and balancing and zipping, all with an amazing safety system automated so any age, any language speaker can enjoy the experience. It is physically and mentally challenging, and each person can choose his or her own difficulty level, although everyone must do easy to intermediate before expert. It is like an aerial obstacle course with zipping and a few rappelles. Go off peak for lower wait times (price breaks for evening and groups of ten or more). The price is worth it, divided over all the hours of adventure! I went with three other adults and six kids ages 11-15 and everyone loved it. Enthralling respite from brain-oriented daywork!

Gillette Stadium

Reviewed By CMC2010 - Florida

We cannot believe how lucky we were to get tickets to the Optum Lounge for the Patriots vs Titans game on Jan. 13. It was AWESOME! We could stay inside and watch the game thru the large glass windows or on the large screen tv's, or we could go outside and stand right under the field goal posts and watch them score touchdowns. It was a cold night so sometimes we were inside and sometimes we were outside. The bathrooms are convenient. The food and drinks are reasonably priced. The chairs were comfortable. The only complaint (which is not about the lounge) is the parking. Gillette Stadium really needs to improve their parking situation. We waited over 45 mins to get into the parking lot at the stadium to find they only had two booth collectors taking money to park. No wonder it took so long to get everyone into the parking lot. This would NEVER happen at the Dolphins Stadium (being from FL we have gone here many times to see the Patriots play the Dolphins) and it would NEVER happen at the Tampa Bucs Stadium either (we just saw the Patriots play the Bucs Oct. 5, 2017). Gillette needs to improve their parking situation.
