Newton Hotels

Boston's upmarket suburb of Newtown is a classical New England town with its leafy streets and red-bricked houses. You'll find many historic estates from the early days of the USA hidden amongst tall oak trees, and the area is made up of several small villages which each boast their fair share of dramatic Victorian and Gothic Revival architecture. Playing host to Boston College means that there's also a thriving arts and culture scene, and a cozy college town atmosphere that helps visitors feel at home.

Things to see

The clapboard exterior and quaint shutters of the Jackson Homestead and Museum may make it look like one of the area's affluent homes, but this important building was once a stop on the Underground Railroad where slaves sought freedom. The museum plays homage to this fascinating era of history, as well as the area of Newton as a whole, and you'll find interactive displays and interesting trivia to be learned around every corner. The Showcase Super Lux Movie Theater is a great experience for those who are tired of the usual crowded cinemas with sticky floors. Here you can stretch out in a huge leather seat, enjoy a cocktail, or linger over a post movie meal in the stylish restaurant. The McMullen Museum is situated on the dramatic Boston College campus, with its red bricked exterior and tall spires fitting in with the surrounding architecture. You'll find a bright and contemporary interior which is perfect for the wide range of exhibitions they host during the year which feature art from around the world.
