Boott Cotton Mills Museum

This former textile mill is a reminder of the changes the Industrial Revolution brought to Lowell, and to America.

Reviewed By JRF-WS - Winston Salem, North Carolina

I have an even greater appreciation for fabric than I did before visiting. The effects of the cotton industry on women's rights, slavery, labor unions, and the Industrial Revolution are fascinating to explore. You get a small (but very loud) feel for what it was like to work in the cotton mills. Ranger Stephen, and the weavers in the mill room, are extremely knowledgable and passionate about the history of Lowell and the mills. So glad we stumbled on the opportunity to explore this important chapter of US History.

Great Brook Farm State Park

Reviewed By Lovetotravelforfun

Returned after years of not visiting here. The trails are pretty well marked, lush, green and mostly flat. Nice to get out for an afternoon walk and always happy to have a delicious ice cream for motivation at the end! The extreme chocolate is dark, delicious and very rich if you love chocolate ice cream. It's not for the faint of heart! Great way to celebrate National Ice Cream Day!

Kimball Farm

Reviewed By Lovelyliki - Douglas MA

Unfortunately I'm not going to give Kimball Farm a good review. Their ice cream was great though. We won a "Give Me Five" pass so recently went, all excited to go. The Give Me Five pass said it was good for ice cream as one of the 5 things you could use it for but when we ordered the ice cream we were told we had to pay for it, which we weren't expecting. Then there was a large corporate event going on so there were thousands of people there. I think they should put a sign outside letting you know that it will be overly crowded that day so you can choose to leave & come another day. Regardless we probably would have stayed since we traveled over an hour to get there. The first thing we did was the zip line. We stood in line for over 1 1/2 hours to go on a one minute ride. There was no rhyme or reason to the line so people were cutting the line. Then we played miniature golf which took us 2 hours to play because it was so crowded so you had to wait for the people ahead of you to finish their hole before you could play & then you felt rushed because there were so many people behind you. We are 2 60 + people and standing for over 3 1/2 hours was too much for us with no place to sit down due to the crowds. We asked if we could leave & come back another day to use the remainder of our 3 activities & we were told no, we used it that day or tough luck. We decided to go to the Animal Adventure since there was no line & by now we had been at Kimballs for 6 hours & only managed to do 3 things. Every place we went the line was at least an hour to two hour wait & we just couldn't do it, so we left. We would have REALLY been upset if we had paid the $42.50 price the Give Me Five is, but as I said we won the passes. Due to the crowds & the long long wait in line I can't give Kimballs a good review.

O'neil Cinemas

Reviewed By mamacooking - Boston, Massachusetts

The O'neil Cinema is a great theater with reserved, comfortable, reclining seats with seat trays and one of the largest screens I have seen. Patrons can enjoy a bite and a cocktail in the Backstage Lounge bar/restaurant and even carry an alcoholic beverage into the theater. Food, even Regina's Pizza, can be ordered and delivered directly to your seat. Tuesday is bargain day with special prices for tickets, candy, popcorn, and drinks. There are also specials for seniors on Wednesdays and special pricing for the military every day. Great theater!

Minute Man National Historical Park

The more than 900 acres of this national park run along the route of the battle of Lexington and Concord.

Reviewed By travelmonkey17 - Bristol, RI

This is a great place filled with historical lessons while you walk. Highly recommend it. The trail is beautiful so hard to believe a battle happened in such a beautiful place. Walk across the bridge and read the battle descriptions. It will take you back in time.

Lowell National Historical Park

This park commemorates Lowell's integral part in America's Industrial Revolution.

Reviewed By johnm01453 - Fitchburg, Massachusetts

I remember working in a spinning mill when I was younger. You hear the same noise and can understand what the people went through. The canal ride is a wonderful ride and they explain how Lowell utilized the river. Going thru the locks was fantastic.

The Butterfly Place

Reviewed By Marsha L - Cape Cod, Massachusetts

A group of garden ladies ventured through the gardens to watch the winged critters. We saw quail, finch, koi fish, various types of butterflies and caterpillars. We enjoyed a nice question and answer time with staff member Jacky! She helped us find special spots. We were fascinated. Definitely an educational and enjoyable morning.
We loved all the colorful sights. A Special Thanks to Anna, Jacky and Joan!!!
We appreciated all your kind help and guidance.
