Growing up in New England makes it easy to take for granted that the leaves change colors in the fall. It was only recently that I began to fully appreciate the ephemeral beauty of the yellows, reds and oranges that decorated my neighborhood each fall. Many people travel to New England to witness the beauty of peak foliage season, which ranges from mid-September [...]

Known as “America’s Oldest Seaport,” Gloucester was founded in 1623 and has always been deeply entwined with the ocean that surrounds it. One of my favorite summer events, the Gloucester Schooner Festival, brings some of that history to life right before your eyes, and [...]

A couple of summers ago, my friends and I decided to go to a free movie screening at a park in Boston. It was a night full of fun, warm weather and great ambience. Outdoor summer screenings can be a summer activity for everyone. They’re almost always cheap (if not free) and are often family inclusive. So if you’re also a Bostonian or [...]

The holiday season may claim to be “the most wonderful time of the year,” but for me and many Bostonians, that distinction belongs to the first week in June. Since 1983, the Jimmy Fund has sponsored the Scooper Bowl® to raise money for cancer research and care. For three days from noon to eight o’clock, the fundraiser dishes out unlimited ice cream to visitors who [...]
