As one of planet Earth's largest historic naval-ship exhibits, Battleship Cove immerses visitors in an authentic World War II experience. Both sides of the battle are represented via legendary warships, an aircraft, and a submarine, offering forth their mysterious interiors to history mavens and the combat-curious alike. Battleship Cove also houses one of the largest veterans' oral-history archives in New England, proffering reminiscences of war heroes, including Dom DiMaggio (brother of Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio) and John McCain. The gift shop makes newly acquired lessons last with memorable tokens such as personalized dog tags ($7) and teakwood desk accessories made from the original decking of the U.S.S. Massachusetts ($19.95), not to mention the ghosts of a thousand metaphor-spewing albatrosses.
Once a small mowing service, PaveScapes Landscaping Services has blossomed into a thriving business ready to tackle all outdoor needs. Owner Marco Pavao, following his father’s lead, opened the business in 2005, and now dispatches his team to residences across southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. During the spring and summer, the crew designs and installs landscaping, trims trees and bushes, and eliminates weeds and crabgrass. As the cold winter air blows in, customers can recruit PaveScapes Landscaping Services to plow snow from the driveway or take down enemy fortresses during snowball fights.
Healing Massage Therapy's staff remedies bodily maladies by drawing on orthopedic and medical massage training. Before each appointment, the team assesses the client to discover which massage style will be most beneficial. The studio's massage therapists draw on myofascial massage, trigger-point therapy, and neuromuscular techniques. Massage recipients stretch out on a heated hydraulic table, whose soft surface permeates bodies with soothing warmth, like a waterbed full of chicken-noodle soup, and can decompress spines into a more malleable state. Isolated stretching techniques then help to improve range of motion in woebegone joints. The staff kneads problem areas with surgical precision, hoping to decrease clients' long-term need for medical attention. After the massage, the muscle technicians share their findings and advice on general well being.
