Hopkinton State Park

Reviewed By Robert S - Westborough MA

Easy to find parking, you can rent a kayak/canoe, hike, swim (summer only) or relax on the beach. The beach has sand, some rocks too but not bad. Renting a kayak is fun and its easy to paddle for a couple of hours without doubling up your tracks. There are trails available, mostly moderate walking on dirt and tree roots, not many rocks. Quite a few dog walkers and is open in the winter too. Summer time there is a fee.

Trombetta's Farm

Reviewed By VacaLover2015 - Framingham, Massachusetts

We're new to the area and several people indicated we "had" to visit Trombetta's and that it was fabulous. It's a good size typical farm stand but no organic options. The flowers are beautiful but prices weren't competitive enough for me to buy any. I support buying local so if you're not looking for organic grown, check them out.

Great beginner ski hill with all sorts of ground lifts and 1 chair plus snow tubing. Rental area very small and tight when crowded. Came here on a Sunday and it was packed. Staff is friendly and prices are decent. Don't come here if your an expert, you will be disappointed. There are no trails just two little hills. Place is close by to everything, perfect starter place for little kids.

I took my grandchildren here for a couple of days during the summer hours. Young staff but well maintained. Enormous facility with activities for all elementary age groups. Even exercise bikes for adults (although you should be watching your kids!)

The Willard House & Clock Museum

The Willard House is a cultural and historical treasure hidden in the heart of Blackstone Valley. In addition to the beautiful architecture, which dates to 1718, the museum also features one of the finest collections of clocks in the world. 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.

This was just a quick visit on Labor Day Monday. It was not too crowded. They have streamlined traffic through the store and have many registers open. I heard about the apple dumplings but did not see them in the store, so I asked at the register and got some fresh out of the oven. Yummy. Of course we also got some donuts, not sure if they changed anything or I just like them more, but the donuts seemed yummier this year.

We enjoyed a winter afternoon at Tower Hill. The greenhouses are gorgeous, and it was wonderful to explore the tropical plants in bloom, despite the brisk weather outside. The Christmas decorations were a treat. We did explore some of the grounds, and really enjoyed the Wild Rumpus.

Chestnut Hill Farm

Explore scenic woodlands and rolling fields at this working farm, which was saved from development in the 1960s through the dedication of a local family.

Reviewed By EagleEyeBoston - Boston, Massachusetts

A relatively new property under the management of The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR), this historic farm has been largely preserved and is a working farm today. Great fancy goats! Nice open fields to enjoy. It is unfortunate that the surrounding land has been developed so much, but you can enjoy what is left. No dog walking, unfortunately. A real asset for those who live in the area.

JJ's Sports Bar & Grill

Reviewed By Jmcolker - Atlanta, Georgia

On a recommendation from the front desk of my hotel for dinner, I drove down to JJ's. Driving up I was not very impressed with its appearance and the impression of being a lower end neighborhood sports bar. Wow was I surprised. Great service and very good food. They had a very broad range of menus choices and very reasonable prices. I would highly recommend JJ's vs. the chain's in the area.
