Inside Playground's family-oriented play palaces are the creative invention of a mother and veteran pre-school teacher with expertise in combining fun activities and learning. Kids aged 6 and younger remove their shoes and gleefully enhance motor skills in a supervised carnival of colored ball pits, inflatable structures, and safe child-size gym equipment. In addition to the main play area, the indoor, year-round facility also supplements the scampering with an array of sit-down games and puzzles designed to nourish developing neurons. Party rooms host birthday shindigs with plenty of parent-friendly seating and free WiFi. Inside Playground has a schedule of weekly events, such as visits from Barney the dinosaur, Elmo, and magicians who pull rabbits out of children's ears.

Jump Around Parties & Playdates boasts a sprawling indoor gymnasium of inflatable bounce houses, obstacle courses, and interactive games designed to give kids' energetic limbs and imaginative minds a place to explore. During open-jump sessions, staff members supervise children while they take on winding obstacle courses, break free from gravity in the moon bounce, and sharpen their jump shot during bounce-enhanced basketball games. The facility's two private party rooms host birthday celebrations that dazzle kids with pizzas, Cold Stone Creamery cake, and balloons in between their romps inside the climate-controlled gym. The center's invitation-creation center makes up quality invites so parents can use their time party planning instead of mastering calligraphy.

Stationed a safe distance away from the crowded city center, Easteleigh Farm has kept bygone eras alive since the early 1900s in Framingham. Current ownership converted Eastleigh back to a dairy operation in the early 2000s, and visitors have reaped the benefits ever since. During stops at the on-site store, visitors find fresh-from-the-farm products, including raw milk, cheeses, eggs, and honey. Even the farm's land exudes a high level of verdure: instead of crop-dusting the property with protein powder, Eastleigh uses all-natural nutrients such as fish oil to keep the land healthy. Visitors can see just how healthy the bounty is, too, during tours and hayrides around the farm.

A treasury of American art from the 18th century to the present day, with a particular emphasis on the school of Boston expressionism, the Danforth Museum of Art treats patrons to an array of ever-changing exhibits. Running June 12–August 7, the museum's juried exhibitions highlight pieces selected by discriminating art experts, rather than by fickle magic 8 balls. Along with the annual flagship presentation Off the Wall, which features new and exciting work from contemporary artists living and working in New England, this year's new Picture This! exhibit fills the Danforth Children's Gallery with work from regional children's-book illustrators working without the aid of talking-caterpillar apprentices. A third exhibition, A Community of Artists, displays hand-picked artwork chosen after the selection process for the other two showcases.
