    Met friends on a beautiful spring afternoon. Run by the Native Plant Trust, the garden highlights native New England plants in a variety of environments from ponds to woodlands and pine barrens. Many lovely blooms when we were there. Don't come expecting a challenging hike. Rather, experience a relaxing nature walk. Very nice (though expensive) gift shop. Also very healthy looking native plants for sale.

    Large paved 1 1/2 mile oval with plenty of trees surrounding a large open field. Walkers, runners, skate boarders, roller skaters and bicyclists as well as plenty of dog walkers. Not crowded.

    I grew up walking in these woods. The quality of the woods has deteriorated. So many trees are dead and many have been blown over. Burning Bush, a non-native, is spreading like wildfire. (It has ununusual branches-almost like fins on the branches). This is a problem because the insects that live in this area do not feed on the Burning Bush. The BB takes up space that native plants otherwise would have used. So insects have less to feed on, so there are fewer of them, and in turn birds have less to feed on-so fewer birds. I don't know if all the dog poop from the masses of dogs dog walkers take here has an effect on the trees. It is a beautiful place, but it needs some TLC.

    A hidden spot to get great ice cream and drinks. Lots of different flavors to choose from. Rich and creamy. You order first then drive around the barn and pick up your order.

    the old Danforth was in downtown Framingham. Had to be moved out of the bldg - now merged w/ Framingham State. Art classes, super equipped and light bathed studios, lovely art displays, including local native, Meta Warrick Fuller's permanent sculpture collection (of the Harlem Renaissance).

    The facility is both an indoor tasting room as well as a fun beer garden across the street. The owners (I'm guessing atty's), it is Exhibit - A Brewing probably have good funding because things seem well thought out and done. As a frequent craft beer adventurer I put the beers on a scale of 5 at 4.1 Some much better than others.

    Springdale offers some great beers, especially with their sours and IPAs. They allow you can bring in your own food, or order a few items from the Jacks Abby menu for delivery for a small surcharge. The bartenders are very friendly, generous with their sampling, and helpful with recommendations. They offer some great events, with trivia, yoga and zumba at the brewery for awesome prices ($15 for 1 hour yoga and a beer can't be beat), as well as all the time entertainment with corn hole, arcade games and shuffleboard. It never gets nearly as crowded as its neighbor, which is great!

    CRG is a great place for either a day pass one-stop visit, or a monthly membership. The staff and members are all super nice and supportive of climbers of all skill levels. Great climbing gym for bouldering. They have aerobic machines and a weight room as well. Very nice and always clean! Got my membership here and I can visit any of the CRG network gyms, which is super convenient because there are a dozen scattered throughout the greater Boston area. Friendly staff and new routes set every week keep me coming back for more! Now if only I could get better at climbing!

    First time in a movie theater since Covid, went to Framingham to see In The Heights. Film was great, seats were comfortable. Screen was big, but this needed a REALLY big screen.

    No seat-side ordering yet, so we didn't have anything. Noticed small popcorn on the way in was $7-$8 which is CRAZY. Film itself was about $10 (plus "convenience fees") purchased online with reserved seats.

    Don’t be intimidated be the fact that everyone here—the stuff and customers—are speaking in Russian. Consider it to be a sign that you’ve come to the right place. This is THE place in the Framingham area to pick up your caviar.

    We love everything we eat at THE FOURS. Tonight it was the special...American Chop Suey. So good! We quite often get the burgers. I'm not even a burger fan, but there's some great, mild seasoning in their burgers...so tasty and lots of topping options. I'm not big on fries but theirs are delicious! Tonight some patrons let us try their baked, rubbed wings, and the were delicious! Loved the tacos I had last week. Drinks are reasonably priced, patrons are so friendly and lots of tv's to watch the games. We always visit our favorite bartender, Tammy, but also met a nice guy tonite who also bartends. We just love this place!
