Things To Do In Newton


Select Local Merchants

  • Charles River Canoe & Kayak
    In the early ’70s, Boston-area resident Mike Farny dreamed of creating affordable outdoor recreational activities for his community to enjoy. Today, on-staff guides lead tours of the Charles River and Boston Harbor to educate participants in ecosystem conservation, view the skyline and sunset, or explore historic structures. Select trips also include lunch to fuel participants as they navigate difficult waterways and jump through flaming hoops. To prepare customers entering the water for the first time, instructors coach riders of all levels in private or group lessons at the paddling school, which draws on more than 30 years of instructional tradition. Staffers can also equip boaters in the shop—where P&H kayaks hang alongside paddleboards and Wenonah canoes, dreaming of one day being the inspiration for a traditional sea chantey. Crew members help clients choose their ride and accessories from these selections and others through free daily demonstrations.

  • Boston Marriott Newton
    The Original Wedding Expo unites local wedding vendors with soon-to-be brides and grooms, presenting a day filled with gowns, cakes, and flowers. Marriage-minded attendees field questions to dozens of merchants fluent in wedding planning and etiquette, settling quandaries over what's appropriate to throw at newlyweds??rice, birdseed, or baseballs. DJs and live bands provide a soundtrack as guests chat with photographers and browse the bridal-gown sale, whose more than 150 dresses showcase the modern and classic styles. At 2:00 p.m., a fashion show exhibits elegant and fun dresses for the entire bridal party, presenting suitable attire for best friends, family members, and over-sentimental mannequins. The expo automatically enters registered attendees into raffles for grand prizes such as a honeymoon, limousine or tuxedo rentals, and a designer wedding cake.

  • Mass Tour Card
    A Mass Tour Card grants golfers one round of golf at each of ten Massachusetts courses. Golfers must pay the cart fee at each course, after which they can steer their electric steed through the forested charm of The Foxborough Country Club's course or over the rustic covered bridge at Maplegate Country Club. Quail Ridge Country Club's course takes golfers through scenic conservation land and stone relics of its previous life as a farm. Bradford Country Club's difficult, par 70 layout tests putting strokes with smooth bentgrass greens, while The Stattuck course winds through the granite foothills of Mt. Monadnock. Norwood Country Club, meanwhiile, invites players to smash shots and stare down flagsticks across 6,009 yards of relatively flat terrain with medium-sized greens.

  • Boating in Boston
    Boating in Boston drops oars in seven locations?including local lakes, ponds, the Charles River, and Boston Harbor?sending visitors on watery adventures with a fleet of canoes, kayaks, sailboats, pedal boats, paddleboards, and festive and essential lifejackets. Whether navigating the peaceful waters of Hopkinton State Park's Hopkinton Reservoir?the place that, in 2002, started it all?or campus-adjacent eddies of UMass Boston's Fox Point Landing, visitors can hit the water untrained or sharpen skills with solo or group lessons. The crew of instructors also instills a love of boating in the littlest landlubbers with youth summer camps that teach basic skills and safety.

  • Boston College
    The Boston College Eagles are set to shred the competition with their metaphorical talons next month when they kick off their season with home games against the Weber State Wildcats and Kent State. Although the Eagles were treacherously swindled out of the Emerald Bowl title last year by the cunning Trojans, this year?s roster is stocked with talented players who are ready to lead the way to victory with aerodynamic skull armor and bubblegum-flavored mouthguards. You'll get lower end-zone views of the tackling, throwing, and funcitement.
