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.

What a treasure for Georgy Girl. She romps and runs with all kinds of canines. Whether in the field or in the woods or in the water, she goes twice a day..sometimes with her walker, the loving Melissa, or with the 'rents. We often walk her around the reservoir, but on cold and icy days, the kind we have had over the recent past, Cat Rock rocks

Located just 20 minutes from Boston, The Museum of World War II is home to the most comprehensive collection of original WWII artifacts & documents anywhere in the world. With more than 7,000 pieces on display, the museum uniquely shows the human story interwoven with the military and political events thru all of the artifacts that made up life, from everyday, to the most momentous decisions during the war. "It is a sacred mission to preserve the lives and heroic actions of all those people who fought on the battle fronts and home fronts to destroy the evil of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan." -Kenneth W. Rendell, Founder & Director.
What started as a private collection of WWII artifacts has evolved into a wonderful small museum of objects seldom seen in a public venue. The collection ranges from uniforms and artillery to propaganda posters and children's toys from Nazi Era Germany. The museum accepts donations from private citizens and as such, the items on view are diverse and remarkable to see. It is worth traveling out to the suburbs of Boston in a commercial area to find this hidden gem. It is a fabulous collection of items.

A nice easy walk around the pond. The scenery on September was beautiful and there were swans on the lake. Great morning walk.

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.

We recently went to Drumlin without almost 2 year old twin grandchildren. It was wonderful. They got to see owls and hawks, roosters and chickens in a chicken coop, pigs, cows, sheep and cows. We could have a taken a hayride around the property but after enjoying almost 2 hours on a sunny day it was time to go home.
Drumlin is also a working farm that offers CSA programs and summer camp for children including teenagers ( we spoke with a couple of groups that seem to be involved in interesting educational projects).

Big mall. Plenty of variety. Has just about everything. I wouldn’t call this place upscale, but it’s much nicer than most suburban malls. Some higher end anchor tenants. Parking can be difficult depending on time and day. Need to get there early on weekends. Plenty of chain restaurants, as well as a decent food court. Area surrounding the mall has just about any type of retail stores that you may want / need.
