  • Piers Park Sailing Center
    Bobby Martin, now the executive director at the nonprofit Piers Park Sailing Center, grew up with a sail line in his hand, touring the Delaware River and the waters surrounding Kent Island and St. Michael's in Maryland. He always knew sailing was in his blood, as he was raised in a family of boat builders and America's Cup competitors. He followed this passion throughout school and into a racing team at Boston University and earned a position as captain by his senior year. The passion for sailing shows through at Piers Park Sailing Center, which train sailors of all ages and ability levels including underserved youth and disabled students.

  • The North Star
    Enjoy traditional American cuisine at The North Star, home of American comfort food. Come prepared to feast at The North Star — with no low-fat options, any diets will need to be put aside for the moment. Just because you're out on the town doesn't mean you have to miss the game. TVs are on in the bar area to give you all the latest scores. Ideal for birthday parties or other large get-togethers, The North Star has all the room you'll need to be comfortable. Music lovers will appreciate The North Star's freshly mixed tunes spun by live DJs. Be prepared to raise your voice, though — the restaurant can get noisy. If crowds aren't your thing, it's best to visit The North Star during the slower weekday hours. The North Star is completely informal — dress as you see fit (and are most comfortable). If you're in a hurry, place an order for pickup instead. Drivers can park in the neighboring lot. Need a break from the road? Public transportation is also convenient, with popular stops at North Station (Fitchburg/South Acton, Green, Haverhill, Lowell, Newburyport/Rockport, Orange), Haymarket Station (Green, Orange), and Bowdoin Station (Blue). The menu at The North Star is reasonably priced, with most items costing less than $30.
