America's First Suburb

I once read that Brookline is America's first suburb. Bostonians would pack up in the summer and trek the short distance there and spend summers in its mansions. Not too hard to picture this since being there does make you feel like you've gotten away.

However, it's just a short T ride away from Boston.

Brookline Beauty

It's everywhere. And, sometimes, it's seemingly hidden, right under your nose.

And you just never know

What kind of cuties you'll run into in Brookline!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Within walking distance to Boston
  • Cons:Some spots close too early
  • In a nutshell:If it was good enough for the Kennedys.....

    Great restaurant tips! There is a great little Thai place called "Roe Dee" have you heard of it? You should check it out if you haven't, I also like "Clear Flour Bread" for their fantastic "crossiants"

    It's really a great auto museum and the exhibits do change..
