In 1958, Ryan Family Amusements founder James A. Ryan opened a simple, eight-lane bowling alley, planting the foundation for a slew of entertainment centers throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island. At 10 locations, visitors enjoy a variety of arcade and skill games in addition to traditional candlepin, tenpin, or duckpin bowling. Every Friday and Saturday evening from 9 p.m. until midnight, bowling lanes take on an incandescent glow, allowing bowlers to experience futuristic entertainment without the inconvenience of rising jetpack-fuel prices. Bumper bowling is available for younger players, and an onsite concession stand refreshes responsible adults with glasses of beer and wine.

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.

Bright lights gleam off of the newly renovated synthetic lanes that grace Old Mountain Lanes and Walnut Hill Bowl. These premier alleys train one eye on 10-pin history and the other on modern day amenities, including LCD scoring monitors, automatic bumpers for kids, and laser-guided bowling ball retrievers. Cosmic bowling is de rigueur on weekend nights, and strike-less players on-strike can enjoy pool tables, video games, and air hockey at the arcade. Both alleys pour frothy mugs of beer at on-site pubs.

Saunders Farm's Haunting Season provides enough ghoulish delight to awaken the deadest of zombies. Eleven mazes make for ample meandering possibilities, and a haunted hayride swerves through 35 acres of horror-filled forest, surveying more than 20 scenes of performance, special effects, and bad ghost breakups. The 150-year-old barn of terror takes trekkers through the abandoned pathways of Saunders Farm, and the corn cannon launches cobs more than 400 feet. Quell scaredy-cat stomachs with a complimentary bag of fresh-popped kettle corn.

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.
