WWI Memorial Park and Zoo

Reviewed By ferogz - North Attleboro, Massachusetts, United States

Love this park! There is so much to do. Lots of areas for walks, a small zoo, two play ground areas, a sand play area and the most amazing slide that every kid dreams of. Easy to park at and lots of tables for picnic lunches. Also the garden with the water butterfly is so much fun for the little kids.

Love the concept of this outlet. Great variety of stores to shop. Some high end stores mixed in with some average stores make it so great!

An Unlikely Story Bookstore

Reviewed By William M - Boston, Massachusetts

My wife and I learned about this bookstore from a recent New York Times national "best of" article on independent bookstores. Gorgeous restored wooden building. Ample parking nearby. The place was packed with enthusiastic patrons, of all ages, two days after Christmas. It was *much* smaller than we expected, but within those constraints, the selection was wide-ranging and creatively displayed. What stood out most was overhearing a staff member, at a parent's request, ask an elementary-school-aged girl what sort of books she was interested in, and then the staff member knowledgeably, patiently, and eagerly providing the girl with an array of options, as her expression slowly changed from one of annoyed skepticism to surprised gratitude. That is what an independent bookstore is all about!

National Shrine of our Lady of La Salette

Reviewed By redeco - Warren, Massachusetts

The National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette is a destination for pilgrims any time of year, but between Thanksgiving and the New Year, the shrine dazzles with 500,000 Christmas lights celebrating the birth of the Christ child. The display is provided for a free-will donation - so, there is no formal fee, and a visit here makes for a great family outing.

The lights are distributed over ten acres, and there is a massive amount of parking space. No admission fee (but loosen your purse strings and leave a donation); and pets were in evidence. They may or may not be allowed - not sure. There are several places to buy snacks. I tried a slice of the Canadian meat pie in the cafeteria (the line moves fast), and loved it. They also had wonderful desserts and hot chocolate.

The place is crowded, so expect congestion, whining kids, and visitors who are generally very nice and very patient. On weekends at 7 pm, I recommend Fr. Pat's concert of faith-based songs and carols. Fr. Pat accompanies himself on the guitar.

Bring the family, and Enjoy!

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.

Blackstone River Bikeway

Reviewed By yaflincoln - Rhode Island

lovely paved pathway for biking, running or walking. It is a well maintained area that runs along the Blackstone River. There are some small inclines along the way but nothing steep. There are many areas where you are able to gain access to the path. Be aware It is not cleared after snowstorms….

McCoy Stadium

A popular baseball field (home of the Pawtucket Red Sox) for minor-league games that draws a huge crowd.

Reviewed By apatriot73 - Massachusetts

I have been coming here for years and years. It is a great place for watching AAA Baseball . It is much better in many ways than seeing MLB first hand. The prices for everything are drastically cheaper, less crowds, better parking-free if you get there early, including handicapped and easier traffic.

I would recommend going to MLB at least once in a lifetime though. Many stars come from AAA. The players usually like giving autographs.

Lastly, McCoy has events sometimes, like walking the field, fireworks and more.

Went to a function here, the food was decent, but small portions (this could have been the fault of the host). Service was good. Parking garage was convenient.

Lions are just the beginning. All sorts of animals, food, information, and playgrounds. If you have kids, it's a great place to bring the kids on the cheap and spend lots of time looking at all the animals!
