As one of the larger suburbs in the Greater Boston area, Newton has fun for everyone. Looking for a lazy time on the Charles River or trying to beat the heat this summer?

If you’re looking for something a bit more exciting, though, the Charles River has some more hands-on activities to offer as well.

It runs right through Newton and has plenty of beautiful sites, regardless of how dirty the water might be at times.

Newton is also extremely close to Cambridge. Within a ten minute drive you’ll find the Harvard Museum of Natural History, full of plenty of impressive and exciting displays.

Or maybe you have a summer birthday? Just because school’s out doesn’t mean you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Newton has several fun birthday party locations for you to check out. Boston Ballet Birthday Parties are hosted in a professional ballet studio and include a 45-minute ballet or creative movement class. An excellent venue, the party spot offers goodie-bags, craft activities, dance props, and more!
