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.

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."
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.

Are you ready to break out of prison, be on a TV game show, explore a haunted house or run an obstacle course? Boda Borg Boston has seventeen Quests to challenge your team. You'll climb, crawl, explore and fail -- a lot -- as you work together to conquer our challenging Quests.
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

The red line on the sidewalk leads you on this 2.5-mile, self-guided tour of American Revolution sites. It starts at the Boston Common, America's oldest public park, and ends at the famed Bunker Hill Monument.
There are guides that will take you on the Freedom Trail from the Tourist Office in Boston Common. For a worthwhile tour avail yourself of the knowledge of the local tour guide. The experience will be so much more worthwhile. Fascinating explanations behind the actions of the patriots

The Harvard Art Museums house one of the largest and most renowned art collections in the United States, and are comprised of three museums (the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Arthur M. Sackler Museums) and four research centers (the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, the Center for the Technical Study of Modern Art, the Harvard Art Museums Archives, and the Archaeological Exploration of Sardis). The Fogg Museum includes Western art from the Middle Ages to the present; the Busch-Reisinger Museum, unique among North American museums, is dedicated to the study of all modes and periods of art from central and northern Europe, with an emphasis on German-speaking countries; and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum is focused on Asian art, Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern art, and Islamic and later Indian art. Together, the collections include approximately 250,000 objects in all media. The Harvard Art Museums are distinguished by the range and depth of their collections, their groundbreaking exhibitions, and the original research of their staff. Integral to Harvard University and the wider community, the museums and research centers serve as resources for students, scholars, and the public. For more than a century they have been the nation’s premier training ground for museum professionals and are renowned for their seminal role in developing the discipline of art history in the United States. The Harvard Art Museums have a rich tradition of considering the history of objects as an integral part of the teaching and study of art history, focusing on conservation and preservation concerns as well as technical studies. The Harvard Art Museums’ 2014 renovation and expansion carried on the legacies of the three museums and united their remarkable collections under one roof for the first time. Renzo Piano Building Workshop preserved the Fogg Museum’s landmark 1927 facility, while transforming the space to accommodate 21st-century needs. The museums now feature 40 percent more gallery space, an expanded Art Study Center, conservation labs, and classrooms, and a striking glass roof that bridges the facility’s historic and contemporary architecture. The three constituent museums retain their distinct identities in the facility, yet their close proximity provides exciting opportunities to experience works of art in a broader context.
I was very surprised to see such an extensive collection of ancient pottery within this art museum. The museum itself is very large, with significant amounts of space to move around and some really great works (self portrait of Van Gough, full portrait of Washington, works by Picasso and Monet). For me the pottery was the most interesting and I spend a significant amount of time in that area and the space dedicated to Mediterranean and Near Eastern Art.

One of the world's leading educational institutions, with an emphasis on math and sciences, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is located on the banks of the Charles River. The M.I.T. campus includes many modern buildings designed by famous architects and is worth exploring.
Directly across the Charles River from Boston (indeed you can walk across the misnamed Harvard Bridge). M.I.T. Is architectural feast with an eclectic selection of buildings designed by many world renown architects from I.M. Pei to Alvar Alto. The campus boasts an Alexander Calder “stabile’ called the Great Sail”.

More than 10,000 specimens are on display, including the 2,000 models of Harvard's renowned collection of Blaschka 'Glass Flowers,' amazingly realistic flame-worked glass models of flowering plants commissioned to teach botany to students in the early 20th century. Family favorites include the dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals as well as some 500 current day mammals, including elephant, rhino, tigers, giraffe and skeletons of three whales. Outstanding Earth Sciences gallery with rare minerals, meteorites and a timeline of Earth history. New exhibits on Microbial Life, New England Forests, Sea Creatures in Glass, and Marine Life in the Putnam Family Gallery.
What a great museum - excellent exhibits of natural wonders. The "rock" exhibit is excellent - brightly lit, sparkling examples all around. I think I spent almost an hour in this area alone. The other area not to be missed is the exhibit of the flower examples in glass. In looking at these specimens that were created for study, it is hard to believe they are truly made of glass and not the real thing. Each and every one is an unbelievable works of art.

On the National Register of Historic Places, the library opened in 1852 as the first free, publicly-supported municipal library in America.
If you are a fan of classic architecture, this place is a must visit. The reading room, courtyards and stairwells are all fabulous. Free to visit too!

This Italian neighborhood, Boston's oldest, is known for its wonderful restaurants and historic sights. Walk the cobblestone streets to take in the architecture and aromas of delicious food, and visit Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church while you're in the neighborhood.
I was warned off going to the North End by a friend who lived in Boston, but I'm glad I did not heed his advice and went anyway. It is an area that is loved by tourists to Boston, presumably due to the proximity of the excellent pastry shops there, as well as the amazing Italian restaurants. Would like to try Giacomo's the next time I am in Boston. No reservations, cash only. Packed all of the time.

This Frederick Law Olmsted-designed park, famous for its Swan Boats, has over 600 varieties of trees and an ever-changing array of flowers. It is America's first public garden.
Love the commons. Early mornings are less crowded. Always a small group of people with off leash dogs. One or two small hills. Mostly flat. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants on the perimeter
