Owner of Nicholas Seafood and Grille Marcia O'Brien carries on a five-generation New England tradition of delivering a menu of fresh-fish delicacies to harborside diners. Starters include Pino's popcorn shrimp, freshly popped from conch-shell kernels and attended by a pool of spicy mayo, as well as steamed P.E.I. mussels simmering in a jacuzzi of white wine, garlic, and butter. Shrimp, scallops, and lobster nestle beneath a buttery blanket of house-made breadcrumbs in the seafood casserole, and Nick's mixed dinner combines sweet italian sausage, steak tips, and honey-bourbon-marinated turkey tips. Baked haddock and grilled Atlantic salmon round out the pescetarian plethora, and steak-lovers can tuck into a slab of prime rib rubbed with sweet and savory spices and paired with rosemary-shallot butter. The regularly rotating dessert menu spins a sweet roulette wheel of fresh pie and cake baked each day.

For seafood and barbecue that's earned the attention—and praises—of Phantom Gourmet and TV Diner with Billy Costa, hungry locals need look no further than Lobster Q. Servers dole out cool pints of local craft beer and baskets of sweet potato fries to complement steamed crab, pulled pork, ribs, and grilled fish entrées. And, of course, lobster: steamed whole, baked into pies, stuffed into rolls, or hidden in ravioli, lobster is the centerpiece of the restaurant's broad menu. Lobster Q also uses its dual emphasis on seafood and barbecue as an artistic opportunity for kids, awarding a free meal to children who draw the best versions of the chimerically delicious Lobster Pig.

Visions of the Italian coastline flood in through faux archways painted on the walls at Scola’s Restaurant. While waiting for the main meal, guests can nibble on shrimp scampi and eggplant rollotini or settle a bitter arm-wrestling dispute once and for all. The chefs' classic Italian dishes include chicken cacciatore and shrimp piccata. There’s an ample seafood selection, too—steamed lobster, stuffed haddock, and broiled scallops—as well as a few American dishes, including a barbecue steak-tip dinner. Guests can also order up sandwiches such as a fried clam roll or meatball sandwich.

In addition stocking to an international assortment of wine and beer, the bartenders mix up martinis that range from classic cosmopolitans to the Starbucks martini, which combines Starbucks coffee liqueur and Stoli vanilla vodka within a chocolate-rimmed glass.

Hometown Seafoods' founder, Gene Marshall, uses 40 years in the seafood industry to craft a varietal menu of piscine delicacies. For private-dwelling mastication, take-home entrees—including fresh-baked haddock ($14.99/lb.) and a Cajun-inspired seafood jambalaya ($10.99/lb.)—team up with sides such as rice pilaf or fresh-made stuffed potatoes to feed offspring or the housecats who’ve taken them hostage. Within the restaurant's confines, appetizers such as land-and-sea-melding, bacon-wrapped scallops stir up appetites ($14.99/lb.) before boats of fried Maryland crab cakes ($8.95) navigate mouth-waters alongside fresh fried clams ($12.95). Grilled salmon showcases its diversity, offering itself as a beef-rivaling burger ($6.95) or full dinner replete with fresh veggies and rice pilaf ($11.95). Soups and chowders, including a local New England clam, provide creamy sustenance ($2.95–$9.95), and sandwiches such as lobster salad ($13.95–$18.95) and crabmeat ($8.95–$15.95) take up residence inside bready borders.

When Nashoba Valley Ski opened in 1964, its lack of modern equipment meant that most of the time guests just had to hope for a good snowfall. In the decades since, however, the resort has gained mastery over the winter landscape. Snow-blowers spray their glittery clouds onto 17 trails ranging from beginner to expert, where skiers and snowboarders carve around sharp turns, navigate shaded glades, and look for fresh tracks left by wild Thoreaus. Four high-speed lifts run from the lodge and restaurant to the top of these slopes, and provide easy access to the mountain's two terrain parks. Suited to riders of varying experience levels, both parks encourage air-catching with features such as large boxes and rails. Recognizing that not all visitors enjoy strapping boards to their feet, Nashoba Valley Ski offers another kind of winter-time fun: a tubing park spread across 18 grooved lanes and serviced by four tow lifts.
