Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, Apr 27, 2015

It's not quite warm enough to hit up any outdoor pools in Boston yet, so check out these awesome indoor water parks! All are no further than a few hours away -  perfect for getting your pool fix before the summer.

Cape Codder Resort and Spa | Hyannis, Mass.

"The Cape Codder Resort and Spa, located in Hyannis, features a “wave pool,” but it’s really a lot more than that. Guests will find waves up to 2 feet, and also two water slides, waterfalls, and dancing water fountains. The pool is free for all resort guests."

Coco Key Water Resorts | Danvers, Mass. and Waterbury, Conn.

"Coco Key Water Resorts, a national chain with eight locations in all, boasts two New England franchises in Danvers and Waterbury, Conn. If the constant temperature of 84 degrees doesn’t make you feel like you’ve gotten away, the Key West-theme at each location certainly will. "

Kahuna Laguna | North Conway, N.H.

"Kahuna Laguna, located at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort, features a three-story slide that lands visitors in a 43,000-gallon pool.Admission for the water park is $40 for adults and children, but be aware that rates apply only to registered guests at the Red Jacket."

3 Date Ideas

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sat, Apr 25, 2015

Looking for a date idea that's fun and not totally cliche? Check out a few of these suggestions, thanks to Thrillist:

Cocktails and oysters at the Hotel Commonwealth | Kenmore Square

"Surprise your date with a night in Kenmore Square that doesn’t revolve around an overcrowded Sox bar. Kick your night off at The Hawthorne with a classic cocktail or one of the house creations like the Esperanto (crema de mezcal, La Ciggarrera manzanilla, Carpano Antica, and orange bitters). Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head across Hotel Commonwealth’s lobby into Island Creek Oyster Bar for some of the ocean’s best bivalves (oysters average $3/each). Between the perfectly concocted cocktails and aphrodisiac power of the oysters, you two will be primed to plan your second encounter. If you don’t want the night to end, tack on a visit to the Boston University Observatory, where you can see the beautiful Boston skyline with the telescopes on hand."

Authentic Italian and improv comedy | North End

"When going out for dinner and drinks at an authentic Italian restaurant in the North End, there're Monica's, and dozens of other trattorias worth hitting. Then get ready for a pee-your-pants funny improv show at the Improv Asylum. Protip: put your name on the waitlist at  (since it typically has a two-hour wait!), then watch the comedy show at the Improv Asylum while waiting for the restaurant to call your cell when a table frees up -- and then head over there when the show is over."

Walk the Esplanade to Harvard Square | Back Bay to Harvard Square

"For a date that's easy on your wallet, go for a stroll along the Esplanade and head towards Harvard Square.  There are often different festivals going on in the Esplanade around the holidays, and it also offers one of the best views of fall foliage in Boston. Once you've finished the three-mile walk from Back Bay, reward yourselves with a drink, either downstairs at Russell House Tavern or in the beer garden at ."

2015 Boston Marathon

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sun, Apr 19, 2015

An estimated 500,000 people are expected to watch the Boston Marathon tomorrow. Here are a few insider tips from Boston Discovery Guide to to make your day a little bit smoother:



"If you want to be anywhere near the finish line, walk or take the T.
The Copley Square T station is closed on Boston Marathon Day as it is almost next to the finish line; you'll need to pick another station.
If you take the T, get off at a station on the side of Boylston Street where you want to watch the race.  You will not be allowed to cross Boylston Street, and underpasses will be jammed - so pick your station carefully.
Do not drive into Boston on Marathon Monday.  Streets are either gridlocked or closed.  Get an early start if you want to find a parking space in a T parking lot.
Boston hotels fill to capacity during the weekend before the Marathon, and hotel rates soar significantly higher - than usual.  To get the best deal, make your Boston hotel reservations as early as possible.  You can find Marathon hotel suggestions here, including names of hotels where you can watch the race from your room.
April weather in Boston is unpredictable . . . and so is Boston Marathon weather.  Neither icy rain, broiling heat, nor wind storms deter the Marathon runners - but they may greatly diminish your viewing comfort.  Dress in layers, and bring umbrellas and/or water bottles as common sense dictates.  If you're not 100% committed to watching the runners, you may want to have a "Plan B"
