Hi there,

Have you every noticed that The Boston Phoenix is mostly nightclubs? What about the balloon festivals, the sandcastle sculpture competitions, and the scavenger hunts? Who’s listing “Owl Day” at a local museum, or where to go for art festivals, kite flying competitions, and ren faire events? Is there an indoor rock-climbing wall that doesn’t require a gym membership and training? Where do I go to see fireworks? To get a dog sled ride? To go folk dancing?

Every week I post a blog on What’s Coming Up in New England, posted every Wed/Thu at, which comes with a huge list of 1000 New England Activities. It also can be given to you through email; to join the mailing list, go to It’s not bigger than the Boston Globe, but if you want to see the weird outdoorsy stuff in New England, it’s for you.
