i can't believe that it took me 20 years to discover the Fells Reservation, which is a huge open space taking up most of stoneham and part of winchester and woburn... beautiful hiking trails with amazing views of the city. it's so important to be out with the trees! unfortunately the highway bisects it, so you can only do a loop on one side or the other, but it's a beautiful place to spend the day.
i also JUST discovered Carson Beach in south boston. how did i not know about this?! it is huge, not crowded, accessible by public transportation, and although the sand is a little sharp-shell-y, and the water probably not the most sparkling, who cares when it's 97 degrees!?! if you don't have a car to get to the north shore beaches or the cape, like me, it's a great option.
I've lived in Massachusetts most of my life. There is so much history here. When I was in elementary school I walked the freedom trail. I remember it being fun, educational,and a long walk. Would anyone be interested in getting together this spring when the weather warms up to do a SparkBoston Freedom Trail Walk as an event?
If anyone has any other ideas for a SparkBoston event, I would welcome your input. This is your team and I would like to make it fun for everyone!
In South Boston at the Marine Industrial Park is a hidden gem - Pete's Dockside. Open Monday - Friday for breakfast and lunch. Portion size is great for the money and I can make two meals from one order. The baked haddock is great! He also will cook to meet your dietary needs if you call ahead.
P.S. Pete went to Johnson and Wales University for culinary.
