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….

RISD Museum continues to be top-notch! we were there Jan 2015 and much of the displays delighted me-again, or newly! Beautiful furniture design-a cherry music stand as eye-catching as a sculpture--some classics from mid-century 1900's still sharp and stand-out well-designed---but I also want to compliment the guides this time. We were given suggestions and offered assistance to see more of what we were obviously enjoying by several guides-and helped navigating some of the more confusing halls and connections between areas. All was done pleasantly and so helpfully-I was really impressed and grateful!

Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge

Reviewed By pmccoy505 - Pomfret, Connecticut

We reviewed this location for #ThisIsNewEngland after our visit there November 9, 2014. Well marked trails, family friendly, Couples everywhere, though far between them and us, as this area is huge.

The downside is that on the Orange Trail, you escape the city view and have awesome nature everywhere, but you never really escape the noise of the city. The other trails are further away, so they might have a better sound buffer.

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.

It has: three walking trails, baseball fields, tennis courts, a place for fishing, and basketball courts.
A park for all age groups.
There is a playground for the children.
A beautiful pond with geese around.
People can sit on the benches.
It wasn't too dirty, but some parks are cleaner than others are.
A bridge to walk on.
During the fall season there is an Apple Festival.
A great park for walking to get plenty of exercise.
Louis and I had a very nice relaxing and peaceful afternoon at the park, but the weather was hot.
Thank You.

Boston Skydive Center

We are located a the north east end of the airport next to the big blue hanger. Follow signs for the skydive center. Pull in, park and walk up to white building. Spectators are welcome. We have large picnic tables and a deck where friends and family can see you jump.

I had always wanted to do skydiving and enjoyed it beyond expression. The team is well experienced and they know what they are doing. We did a video of our dive and watching it is just hilarious. I will do it again any other time I have the opporunity. Had so much fun .......

I have been coming here for years and I marvel at the interior every time I walk through the doors. I have sat at many different locations here and I've always have a good view of the stage. My favorite seats are front row of the balcony.
