Newton Things to Do

  • Boating on the Charles

    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.

  • Jackson Homestead for History & House...

    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...

  • Best Wing Place around

    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. 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!

    This popular eatery is located in Downtown Newton Center accross from the parking lot. Large menu and straight out of the 50's decor. Get there before 12:00 or you'll be waiting outside.

Newton Local Customs

  • The kids/teenagers in Newton...

    by goyohu Written Aug 26, 2002

    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'.

Newton What to Pack

  • Packing List

    by goyohu Updated Aug 26, 2002

    Luggage and bags: Pocketbook/purse

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: shorts and T-shirt

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you're going to do drugs in the park, bring a way to beat the drug tests. There are a lot of cops around. Also, bring toothpaste and bandages.

    Photo Equipment: There's a lot of good photo-op's in Newton so bring any camera.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A regualr tent will do just fine.

    Miscellaneous: Bring some drugs if you're responsible, because they're fun to do here and there's nothing better.

Newton Off The Beaten Path

  • "Leif Erikson" Tower

    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. GPS location for adventurers out there is 42.353383, -71.261938 - it is right off of the...

  • Rosenfeld Bagel

    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.1280 Centre Street617-527-8080

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
