Brookline things to do and experiences

Weather

Boston is a top destination and books up early between April and November. May and June are often busy with college graduations, but with highs in the 60s and 70s, it's perfect weather for walking the Freedom ... Read more
Trail or catching a Red Sox game. Fall brings the famous New England foliage, the Head of the Charles Regatta, and crisp weather perfect for sipping hot chocolate. Bostonians have an added trick to check the weather: the lights atop the John Hancock tower. They remember the code with this poem: Steady blue, clear view. Flashing blue, clouds due. Steady red, rain ahead. Flashing red, snow instead.

Brookline is a great area of Boston for foodies, with plenty of Jewish bakeries and kosher delis. You'll also find one of the world's few kosher Chinese restaurants here! The main street area is a nice place to walk, with gift shops, bakeries and cute places to eat.

Brookline has a culture all is own, with the best selection of kosher restaurants available in Boston, charming book stores and art/gifts shops.

Brookline has some hidden gems, but it's still a little rough around the edges. It's certainly not the classiest place and I wouldn't say it's a must-see part of Boston. But for those of us who live in the city, Brookline is a nice adventure.

First to Review

One of Greater Boston's nicest areas to live, Brookline has neigborhoods that resemble Sesame Street, if Sesame Street was more politically liberal and made up of mostly Jewish puppets. Zaftig's is deservedly the most famous of the Jewish delis in the area, but a stroll around bustling Coolidge Corner will turn up plenty more delicious options for falafel, bagels, and knishes. Although it's completely surrounded by Boston on all sides, Brookline is actually its own city (the city has always had its own well water, and thus didn't need to join Boston to access the city's water supply as neighborhoods like Allston and Brighton did a long, long time ago).
