Elm Draught House Cinema

Reviewed By Lydia B - Worcester, Massachusetts

Going to movies here is relaxing and very family friendly. AND their best feature is Patriots games - all season - they can't charge admission so you're only expense is snacks. They have a beer and wine license as well. AND the bathrooms are clean and convenient. I have been taking my grandsons there for years and believe me on a stormy Sunday - as we are known to have around here - there is no better option than to go to The Elm. We meet friends and family there, easy access from Rt. 20 and 146.

Purgatory Chasm State Reservation

Reviewed By Joseph J

What a great place for a quick hike that is both fun and gives lots of options you can make this as easy or as difficult as you want. A pleasant stroll down the middle of the chasm or an adventure over and under rocks some the size of small houses. Once you get to the end of the chasm you can walk back on either rim for awesome views.

Worcester Art Museum

This central Massachusetts museum houses a collection that includes works by European and American artists as well as Asian, Greek and Roman art.

Reviewed By CharleneSokal - Worcester, Massachusetts

A unique collection of late 19th/early 20th century photographs is on view until the 25 of Feb. The photos are of an African/American and Native American community living in Worcester. Aside from the photos as images, many of them have been identified with families still residing in Worcester. These add to the texture of the city and connects the families with their ancestors, a unique experience.

West End Creamery

Enjoy a cone of delicious ice cream or try a round of golf on our beautiful 18 hole miniature golf course. Jump in with both feet on the Barnyard Jump or get lost this fall in our 5.5 acre a-maize-ing corn maze! There's SO much to discover at our Family Farm.

Reviewed By JOHNNYB17 - Chicopee, Massachusetts

I was looking for something to do outside with the kids and found West End creamery. We got there right when they opened and it was already starting to get busy but, It was a beautiful day so that wasn't a surprise. We headed right for the mini golf, there was a few people in front of us but it wasn't to long of a wait. The course is 18 holes and is set up nice. They also have a bounce place for kids. It cost 4 of us $34 bucks, $8.50 ea. when we finished up, we headed over to get some of they're ice cream. We walked inside and the girl told us we can eat inside but had to order outside? O.K. ? We went back outside and the lines were pretty long. You would think they would have more people working on a weekend day that was sunny and everyone wanted ice cream, they only had a few girls working and they were pretty unorganized to say the least. You ordered the ice cream at the same window you waited for the ice cream ? I'm not sure why they didn't have a " pick up window" like most places do so that others can order, instead of waiting for the person in front of you to get they're ice cream before you could even order yours? It caused huge back ups of people and a lot of rumbling from the crowds of people waiting. They couldn't even dip my daughter's waffle cone in chocolate ? I'm guessing they ran out or something, at that point, I was just happy to get the ice cream and not stand in a line anymore, so I didn't bother to ask why. It was a nice place to go but they really need management to be on hand of the high school kids they got working for them, to move things along, no ice cream is worth waiting 45 mins for, sorry.

Come by for a tour and see where time began in Blackstone Valley.

Who knew that all of this colonial history was hidden off the road in Grafton mass. Great museum covering the history of one family's involvement in the clock industry in colonial times. Excellent examples of their work nicely laid out.

We came in from out of town to see a touring Broadway musical. What a beautiful place ad the volunteer staff are really nice and knowledgeable. Great acoustics. Only complaint is that I have long legs ad some of the seats don't have enough leg room, but that's a problem I have a lot of places. Would come back again.

What a great place! They have amazing cheeses. Their wine selection is great. And it's got a great supply of crackers, chocolates and other items to go with wine and cheese. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable as well. It's a must stop place whenever I need wine or cheese for entertaining. Or just cheese for myself!

Took my seven year old grandson to the EcoTarium on a Friday and spent the day there. He loved all the interactive displays and hands on activities. The Tornado chamber was one of his favorites. The outside play area is good too with musical activities and instruments to explore. The planetarium shows were well suited to young children and he enjoyed them.

All and all a good place to take kids for the day and not run out of things for them to do there. We will be back!

Blackstone National Golf Club

Reviewed By undertaker01 - Newburyport, Massachusetts

This club has some really terrific holes. Fun to play, with tees for all level of play. The rates are fair ... only with internet specials .... if you leave your email address on their site. $78 to play on a weekend ... forget it!
The condition when we played was good, with some help needed on some fairways, greens were smooth & not overly fast. Pace was a tad slow, but reasonable.
Once again, the course is fun, the rates are not ..... except for seniors weekday.
