This is a smaller area museum that is specialized in it's focus. While it might not be a great draw for their tourist, it is an interesting place to visit for those from the area who'd like to find out more about the history of the town/area. They do have some documents and pieces that are quite dated which are a treasure for lovers of history to be able to look at.
Any history buff or New England native will love coming to visit Paul Revere's Home. You get such a great sense of being able to step back in time. This is a fascinating, centuries old home and historic landmark that has been restored and is open to the public for visitors. I love just being able to get a closer look at what life was like during the time of Paul Revere. It is a great place to visit too if you include it as part of the Freedom trail walk which takes you through many of the wonderful landmarks available through the Boston area.
The city of Newton is home to one of the nicer public libraries in the area. While perhaps not as expansive as some others, the library does have a nice selection, room to explore and read, and an overall welcoming and neighborly feel. This is a well loved part of the city. There are also special events held at different times during the year. This is a good resource for the local community.
This is an incredible Presidential Library. I have been to quite a few, and this is certainly one of the best. There is something special about the library that you feel the moment you walk into the fabulous building set overlooking the water. Here you have one of Massachusetts' favorite son's revealed in a marvelous way. You have the chance to learn about JFK as well as his family and upbringing. There are some fabulous personal items of both the President and the first Lady on display. What a great resource not only for learning about one of our presidents, but for getting a deeper glimpse into one of the beloved and mysterious leaders of the times.
No wonder Wellesley is so well loved This country club and their golf course are absolutely outstanding. As are most things Wellesley, rates are above average, even high. You will get what you pay for though, and that is a beautiful place, great service and a nice, well maintained, enjoyable golf course. The entire club is marvelous, a great setting for special occasions as well. You do need to reserve a spot ahead of time, especially during peak hours. It is well worth the effort as you'll surely have a great round of golf here.
Weston Golf Club has a very nice course for all levels of golfers. I enjoy this course a lot as the setting displays perfectly all of New England's beauty. The course is very well maintained and does not tend to get overly crowded. Rates are in line with other area courses. There is a nice club area as well for before and after a round.
Not too long ago I bought a couple of bikes from International Bicycle Centers. It was a great experience because the staff is very knowledgable and are able to help you find the bike that is in line with your needs and your budget. I appreciated this store because it did not feel that they were trying to "oversell" me or push me towards more than I needed. There is a very large range of bikes available as well as a multitude of accessories. This is a great place to go for all of your biking needs.
Brians Kennels Training is a tremendous resource for pet owners. I heard so many wonderful things about this business from friends and family that I tried it myself, and could not have been happier with the result. I had my dog go here for training. My dog responded very well and they were able to provide gentle instruction that my pet really responded to. I have also had my dog groomed here and the result has always been excellent. Great rates and a friendly, animal loving staff is just icing on the cake here!
I brought my dog here when she needed some care following an injury. The staff was truly wonderful. They were gentle, kind, and thorough with my dog. They took the time to ease my concerns, to explain to me what was going on and to recommended the best course of action. I was pleased with their skill and their attention to detail. It was easy to see that thy truly cared about the well being of my animal. I felt good about placing her under their care.
Avante Hair Salon is a great area salon. I have been to a number of the stylists here, and have been pleased with every single one. They all do a very nice job and are friendly and professional. The salon itself has a very nice feel and does not have the hurried and rushed feel that some other places do. The prices are not excessive, the hours are convenient and booking an appointment is typically quite easy.
