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!

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). :-)

Ascend the hill to enjoy treetop vistas, amble around Holt Pond, or follow trails that leads through an adjacent Trustees reservation to the Charles River.

Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

Reviewed By Kelly D

I have been coming here for a few years now thanks to a family friend who brought me here when I was younger. It was so relaxing and I loved finding different types of animals and just enjoying being in nature. My most recent visit we met a wonderful lady who was a guide there and we chatted while watching 3 snapping turtles play around in front of us. Really great experience for kids.

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.

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!

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.

Follow a trail from the farmstead through restored woodlands to hillside hayfields and pastures, where you'll enjoy views of Great Blue Hill and the Boston skyline.

Reviewed By lighthouselady63 - Boston, Massachusetts

Hubby & I love exploring around Moose Hill Reservation! Who knew there are awesome trails beyond the Blue Hills with amazing overlooks. The trails wind up and around the hills of Sharon and bordering Walpole. Definitely take a trail map along so you can meander through several Audubon sites. The Farm looks like one out of Vermont, very rustic and quaint. Most of the trails are easy to moderate hiking therefore you can hike in comfortable footwear. The overlook I previously mentioned is well worth checking out and spending some relaxing moments. You can see Gillette Stadium and beyond. Hubby & I prefer hiking in the winter, early spring and fall. As the warm weather approaches, so do ticks and other bothersome insects. Just need to be well protected and enjoy this amazing gem!

Rocky Woods

Enjoy expansive views from atop Cedar Hill, amble along a trail to a former quarry site, or explore five ponds that dot this woody landscape.

Reviewed By IKNOWITALL13 - Medfield, Massachusetts

I drive by Rocky woods every day on my way to work. It is down this quaint quiet little road off the main route 109. I saw a sign that said "Picnic Shelters" and just kept wondering, what are picnic shelters? Finally having some time on the weekend, myself and my three sisters decided to venture out to Rocky Woods for the day, not really knowing what to expect. It was all part of our "Exploring Medfield" day my new town that i recently moved to and was still getting to know. We paid $5 dollars to park, and away we went, following the signs to our unknown destination! After about 5 minutes in, we quickly learned that a picnic shelter is a picnic table, with a rook on it.. lol not a glamorous as i had envisioned, but still something we were excited about.. it was a huge and my first thought was, you could have a giant family cook out here and it would be Amazing! The pond is nearby for fishing, and we found a secret park that was tucked away with just a few swings and a slide. All in all we found it to be a very peaceful, beautiful place to relax and walk around on a nice day.
