Rent a row boat, a canoe or a kayak and set sail on the Charles River. Bring a picnic, grab a map and don't forget the sunscreen - everything else is provided for you and the rental rates are very reasonable. Dogs are allowed to go out on the boat with you.

For history buffs, this place is great. It is an old restored house that used to be a part of the underground railroad and actually shows you where runaway slaves were hidden. Cheap entry fee (I don't know how much now, I last went years ago but it won't cost you much.) It also has old photos of the area and often has special displays. A low key Must See if you like history.

Very Popular place just off the Mass Pike. Good selection of beer on tap. Be prepared to have a beer or two while you wait for a table.
Favorite Dish: WINGS!!! My wife does'nt enjoy wings so she tried the Fried clams that were the 'blackboard special' during our visit. She claims they were excellant!

The kids/teenagers in Newton are really bored. So if you're not sketchy and you have good intentions, introduce yourself. It will be worth your while. Because they are pretty smart and well-educated and can carry a good conversation with you and exchange info about 'cultures'.

Legend has it that Leif Erikson discovered and built a fort in Newton (or Norembega) in 1000 A.D. Whether or not you believe this legend, it is a pretty cool to find a tower built to honor Vikings that supposedly rowed/sailed down the Charles River in 1000 AD.

I believe these are the best bagels in the Boston area. Rosenfeld's is located in Newton Center, close to town but in a walk down storefront. Hard to see from the street. If you cannot find it...ask a local!
No seating..takeout only.
