Looking for the “Boston experience” without making the commitment to inner-city living? Brookline is for you. Not only is it just a short train ride from Beantown; Brookline provides an array of eclectic dining options, bustling nightlife, and numerous scenic attractions. If that isn’t enough to entice you, imagine stepping out of your front door and simply walking down to Fenway Park. Sounds like any Sox fan’s dream.
Coolidge Corner, also known as the “cultural hub of Brookline”, makes the town seem like a city. It is the perfect place to spend a night on the town. Whether you are looking to grab a few drinks and watch the game at the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse, indulge in a 9PM breakfast at Zaftigs, or spend date-night at the Coolidge Corner Theater, this intersection between Beacon Street and Harvard Avenue offers it all. There is no doubt why Coldwell Banker named Brookline “the best place to live for social-seekers”.
Even you “social seekers” need an escape from the social scene every now and then. Spend a relaxing afternoon at Larz Anderson Park. The park offers a gorgeous view of Boston’s skyline with over 63 acres of lush, green land. In addition, the recreational site features waterways, picnic areas, playgrounds, and an ice skating ring. The park is pet-friendly so don’t leave your furry friends behind!
If your type of escape involves retail therapy, you will not leave Beacon Street empty-handed. Numerous small boutiques line the street such as Mint Julep and Velvet Ribbon. With the wide variety of shops Brookline has to offer, shoppers wont have to leave town to pick up designer labeled clothing and accessories.
Brookline residents experience the best of both worlds: the town is close to the city but still serves as a suburban oasis.
