    Upon arrival we found easy parking, behind the house. The gift shop was open, we were invited in and the staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. They shared stories about the history of not only Lizzie, but of other members of the family and characters from town, around that time period. The group tour led by Clayson Fox was not only informative but rich with personal information and humor. I can't commend the staff enough for their ability to not only give an excellent tour but at the same time make us feel at home. We were served a delicious breakfast the following morning prepared by a real sweetheart and also I must mention that the bedding and bathroom were clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this experience for everyone that is interested in the paranormal and the historical Lizzy Borden house!

    Located in a well preserved 19th century mansion, the site is a virtual museum. Includes a small gift shop/book store with items relating to the history of the city and the Lizzy Borden case. Staff is courteous and knowledgeable.
    For a nominal fee you are led through the main parts of the house, highlighting the art, furnishings, and architecture. One room contains the largest collection of Lizzie
    Borden related material in existence. It's truly a step back in time to 19th century Fall River. Well worth the visit.

    Oak Grove is a older famous Cemetery in Fall River. You can visit the Andrew and Abigail Family Plot that contains the infamous Lizzy Borden and her family and pay respects. It's also a nice place to take a hour walk. It is very clean and well kept and worth a visit if on a Lizzy Borden self tour.

    Up for sale now and wayyyy out of my league, but what a beautiful home. Hard to believe only two women lived here at one time. Gorgeous architecture.

    What a wonderful gem. This place is just outside of the busy Downton area of Fall River, just across route 79 from Battleship Cove (although there's no easy way to walk from one to the other) Guides are dressed in period attire and are loaded with information on the revolution war. Length of visit is an hour or less depending on if there's any activities planned that day. If you're a history buff, definitely visit this place

    I can't say enough about this experience- I booked an overnight stay for my husband's birthday. We were very excited about it, and still it overshot our expectations. When you stay, you're the only ones at the lighthouse, left to experience it the way the lightkeeper would (well, except without any responsibilities and with cell phone coverage, ha ha). The instructions from the owner in the confirmation email were clear, he was responsive to our inquiries before the trip, and was in touch by text when an unexpected thunderstorm came through that night. Every bit was well thought out and executed, from meeting us on time to take us to the light, to taking our photos before and after the overnight stay and texting them to us, to the selection of DVDs in the sitting room (The Lighthouse, Finding Nemo, etc., LOL). It was an incredibly windy day upon arrival (25 mph winds) which made it even more exciting and memorable for us, and the sunset (and lightning) views were incredible from both the lower level and from the light up top. This is an incredibly memorable and unique experience that you won't regret. Only warnings: (1) They are booked up a YEAR in advance, so book now for next year. (2) Two people, max, and no pets. (3) It would be tough for people who have mobility concerns- you climb a rung ladder from the boat to the first floor, and the bedroom is four flights up.

    Absolutely a must visit...from the old art deco diners to the old time bars and ice cream parlors. Great visit for the whole family. There is a play area and some amusement games. Highly recommend it!!!

    worth an hour or two, sort of inspiring for young developing inquisitive minds. Plenty of hands on simple concepts to make kids think scientifically. Price kind of steep for the quantity of experiences. Cool building that adults might care about.

    We came across this brewery while traveling to Cape Cod. Someone advised us on a previous stop and said it would be worth the drop in. Boy were they right. Some of the tastiest IPAs in the area! We can;t wait to make a day trip and bring some friends along.

    This is an excellent local musical theater group. The performance of Rat Pack Lounge has good music and comedy. It is a great value and you can tell that the troupe is doing this for their love of theater and the community. They have good community support and played to a full house on Sunday afternoon.

    Had business in FR on Sunday so decided to walk the path from Bicentennial Park to Battleship Cove. Most of it is a nice boardwalk, part is just pavement. Right along the river. We started at Bicentennial park, where there are memorials to WWI, WWII, Korean War and Vietnam war, and along the river to Battleship Cove (just over a mile) and back to where we parked.

    Tons of potential in fenced off areas where they could really improve the area but it's nice as it stands

    I guess I'm getting old that I can see beauty in a classic through truss bridge. The newer bridges all seem to have that maintenance free, simple design. I understand the need for the change, but these bridges were engineered in a way that made them useful and beautiful. It's nice that it is named after a war hero and not a politician. Popular path on 195 to and from The Cape.

    Our family Loved visiting Susan Mohl Powers's bright, inspiring workspace and gallery full of paintings featuring joyful, bold use of color and shape and mood-enhancing, large-scale fabric pieces reminiscent of stained glass. Her studio tour with one-of-a-kind stories of her work and career enchanted us all, enhanced by her husband Alan's musical accompaniment and erudite asides. We left very happy with a painting of dancers that continues to delight.
