Mount Auburn Cemetery

Mount Auburn Cemetery was founded in 1831 as America's first landscaped cemetery. A National Historic Landmark, its renowned landscape inspired the creation of the nation's public parks. Mount Auburn was designated an Important Bird Area by the Massachusetts Audubon Society, reinforcing its status as a significant wildlife sanctuary. Still an active burial place, Mount Auburn Cemetery provides comfort and solace to countless families. The Friends of Mount Auburn Cemetery was established in 1986 to assist in the conservation of the Cemetery's natural beauty and to promote the appreciation of its cultural, historic, and natural resources. Over 100 public programs are offered annually by the Friends to educate, enrich, and inspire the community. The Friends seeks financial support for education and interpretive programs and materials for the public, specific cultural projects, and operational support for horticultural rejuvenation and the preservation of the historic monuments, structures, and archival artifacts and records.

Went during the Spring during the warbler migration and had some luck spotting various warblers, orioles, hawks and other birds! The variety of plantings around the differently landscaped grave areas give the feel of different environmental “rooms.” So beautiful!

Hancock-Clarke House

Hancock-Clarke House is closed for the season. It will re-open for tours in April 2018. The home of Lexington's first two ministers and the location where John Hancock and Sam Adams were staying on April 18, 1775. Paul Revere stopped here on his famous "Midnight Ride" to warn Hancock and Adams that British troops had left Boston.

Fenway Park

Hallowed ground to baseball purists, this cozy, quirky park has been the Boston Red Sox home field since 1912. The most distinctive feature of this classic baseball park is the 37-foot-tall left field wall, known as the "Green Monster."

Reviewed By burnboy - Sunrise, Florida

Fenway is one of the greatest places to see baseball how it is meant to be. Hot (or Cold) but close to the players and with an atmosphere unlike any modern stadium. Food isn't that great but that isn't why you come here.

Davis Square

Reviewed By CTTraveler56 - Greenwich, Connecticut

Nice spot in Somerville, but beware of the crowd.
Being so close to Tufts University, it gets impossible to dine in the area restaurants if you do not have a reservation (some do not accept reservation), especially on week ends.
Convenient Subway to Cambridge & Boston.

Great micro-brewery with some really tasty beers. They have rotating small batch brews, and their regular beers. Lots of seats, inside & out, and there is usually a food truck parked outside for eats. It's a great spot for a beer on the way home, or some evening with friends.

Nice park with a nice playground for the kids. You can watch the Arlington/Belmont crew, the birds, or just the locals and look out over a beautiful, largely unspoiled pond. Good parking.

Griffin Museum of Photography

Reviewed By John S - Woburn, Massachusetts

The Griffin Museum is across the Aberjona River from the High School in the center of Winchester. Access is best from the downtown rotary along Shore Road which is one way. It is a beautifully designed single floor exhibit area showing a variety of photographic works which change every month or so. So check the web site to see whats on. Interestingly the Museum also houses the Winchester Chess Club which meets on Friday evenings and so members get to see the exhibits for the price of their Chess Club membership. There is parking outside the Museum and it is also only a short walk from Winchester Train Station and also the 134 bus stop.

We went to Rockport MA for a long weekend. Took a drive to Malden (about 50 minutes) to go here. Heard good things. IMPORTANT - Make a reservation ahead of time!! When we made our reservation it was $20 for 2 hours or $30 for as long as you would like. What a deal. Where can you go this cheap???? The unlimited hour time slots were all booked, so we did the 2 hours. How we wish we had more time....... Had the time of our life. Me and my 2 sisters. You need AT LEAST 3 people. Cant say much more that that, otherwise I would have to give away secrets to the quests. Just if you are in the area you need to go
