The largest of its kind in New England, this sculpture park encompasses 35 acres, 20 miles northwest of Boston. The park features a constantly changing landscape of large-scale, outdoor, modern and contemporary sculpture and site-specific installations, and hosts more than 60 works, the majority of which are on loan. Year round activities include snowshoe tours, yoga in the park, birding tours, curator and artist conversations, and many special talks, screenings, and events.
Spent the afternoon exploring the grounds. It was serene and stimulating at the same time. The size of the artwork varies from huge, towering works to small, intimate pieces. As well as size variation, the diversity of subject matter and medium was also great. It was fun to see a piece from a distance and then to come up right to it--sometimes to be right within it. A quiet, surreal feeling throughout.

Discovery Museum is a hands-on museum that blends science, nature, and play, inspiring families to explore and learn together. The museum and its Discovery Woods accessible outdoor nature playscape and 550 sf treehouse blend the best of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) learning on a beautiful 4.5-acre campus abutting 180 acres of conservation land in Acton, MA, about 20 miles west of Boston. Originally founded in 1982 and expanded to two museums in 1987, the museum reopened in a single, 16,000sf accessible building after a complete renovation and expansion in early 2018. Hands-on, open-ended exhibits developed by professional educators inspire curiosity and exploration, providing a fun and engaging experience for children and adults to discover their world together.
Went with my vision impaired wife and was treated to a guided tour of the outdoor facility as the main building is being totally renovated. The outdoor facility is great for children in the 3 to 10 age range with lots to climb, hide and do things in the tree house. All is accessible for all.

We were looking to try another orchard just for something different.I wasn't impressed by this place. The prices for apple picking were too high. The orchard was hilly and the rows were tilted making it hard to push a stroller. Not appreciative of the long list of rules either. If I'm picking an expensive bag of apples, you bet I'm going to fill it to the top. Honey Pot Hill is off my list. Going back to my favorite orchard very soon.

We're new to the area and several people indicated we "had" to visit Trombetta's and that it was fabulous. It's a good size typical farm stand but no organic options. The flowers are beautiful but prices weren't competitive enough for me to buy any. I support buying local so if you're not looking for organic grown, check them out.

The Wayside Inn is just beautiful! We visited for a wedding and had a lovely time! The celebration was held in a lovely tent on the grounds. The service was wonderful, as was the food! We were able to stroll the garden area and visit the pond, all beautiful!
While we didn't dine in the actual inn or stay overnight at the inn, we did pop over to explore a bit and I'm so glad that we did! The hostess provided us with fascinating and in-depth history about the inn, the area and the time period. We probably spent about 30 minutes with her, but we could have spent so much more time learning about the history of this wonderful place. After chatting with her, we visited the tavern and some of the rooms. Just an incredible place to visit.

The more than 900 acres of this national park run along the route of the battle of Lexington and Concord.
This is a great place filled with historical lessons while you walk. Highly recommend it. The trail is beautiful so hard to believe a battle happened in such a beautiful place. Walk across the bridge and read the battle descriptions. It will take you back in time.

Four of us made our annual visit for apple picking. There were several types to choose from- macs, Cortlands and honey crisps. The usual delicious cider, cheeses and cider donuts were eagerly consumed as well. The pumpkin patch was huge, offering some good sized selections, and the display of farm animals were a good distraction for the many youngsters there.

Animal Adventures is New England's largest, privately owned animal rescue center of its kind! We have been operating in Bolton, Massachusetts since 1997. We are a rescue center first. We take in hundreds of unwanted, or unable to be cared for, animals each year. Some, we are able to find homes for, and others will live here the rest of their lives. We receive zero state or federal funding and are 100% self sufficient. We are state and USDA licensed to keep all of our animals. We follow strict care guidelines and each animal's needs are met on a daily basis. Because we are not AZA all of our funding comes from you! Whether that be by visiting our center or having us at your party or school all the money we makes comes from the work we do.Outside of the services we offer, any donations received are a huge help and we say thanks to you! We have approximately 3 acres and three buildings full of exciting animals both common and exotic from ferrets to foxes chickens to porcupines
Excellent place to see and learn all about different animals. Small but still lots to see. Nice selection of animals--mammals, birds and reptiles. A petting zoo area. Several handling classes are offered throughout the year to get up close and personal. They love for people to enjoy and learn!
