We wanted some real history with facts and narratives and you get it here. We learned about the 4 generations of Adams'. Toured their homes and saw how they lived. Really learned about their love of our country. I don't think I've ever been through a tour that touched on that so much before. It was truly refreshing and inspirational. Quincy is a little bit of a drive outside Boston. I think it's worth it. The town is quite nice as well. A good trip. I have 2 teens. The first part of the tour was kind of "blah" for them, but the second half made up for it. Trick here: ASK QUESTIONS! If you see something, don't assume they will tell you about it. Ask! The guides know so much about this house and to make a tour that fits everyone can make it bland. So please ask questions. They are happy to share what they know. They have little gems about the house too.

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.

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!

Skydive South Boston

Reviewed By 605harry - Massachusetts

We were here to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The owner greeted us and was very gracious and friendly. He explained everything in detail of what we could expect and he even spent time talking to our guests. The two instructors were great, and very competent and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. The place is small but we did not feel that was a negative. The views on a clear day are fantastic. I would not hesistate to recommend them.

This family farm is a good place for homemade ice cream and we often take the grand-kids there when they visit. Inside the store vegetables in season are very expensive. There are cows available for the children to look at while eating their ice cream.

TreeTop Adventures is an exciting new zip-line and climbing park located just 30 minutes south of Boston at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton, MA. 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!

Definitely worth the trip if your making a point to check out of all of the local MA Breweries. Nice small brewery where your literally right on top of the brewing process--the day we were here they were changing the beers and you could smell the Hops as they were emptying them out... food option right next door as well.

Oasis Day Spa

OASIS DAY SPA offers the finest holistic spa services in a peaceful environment in the historic Fogg Opera Hall just 20 minutes south of Boston. Online booking and e-cards are available.

Reviewed By Sandra G - Boston, Massachusetts

Oasis Day Spa is superb. You wouldn't expect to find such an excellent spa outside of the city, but I like Oasis Day Spa better than any of the expensive spas in Boston. I like the atmosphere (quiet and lovely) and the attention to detail. Wanda is my very favorite for a manicure and pedicure -- they even do a hot stone massage during a pedicure! I travel about 30 minutes from my house to go there and would not make a reservation anyplace else when "home." I have tried the massage (which was good but not great - slightly disappointing but i will try again) and am about to make an appointment for a facial. I can't say enough good things about OASIS DAY SPA.

Campanelli Stadium

Reviewed By AlanW182 - Stoughton, Massachusetts, United States

Nice field, it's too bad they couldn't get a minor leauge team there, but with the Pawtuket Red Sox being so close it might not work. Still a fun night with the present teams and decent prices on the food and beer.
