3. See some bad art: Hard to believe, but yes there is a Museum of Bad Art. It is the world's only museum devoted to the collected works, protection, exposition and celebration of bad art in all its forms. This museum has a range of some bad and strange art from brilliant and not-so-talented artists whose works have gone terribly awry.

4. Enjoy a tasteful burger: The first things you notice when you step into Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage are the political advertisements that grace the wall at this loud yet pleasant establishment. That theme extends to its broad burger list. Have a Bill Clintona cheddar cheeseburger filled with barbecue sauce.

5. See the first man made canal: This was the first man made canal to be dug in America by British settlers as the settlers required the water to power their mills. It flows from the Charles River to the Neponset River.
