A great place to spot wildlife

Arlington's Great Meadows is a 183-acre parcel of land located in east Lexington, right off the minuteman Bikeway. This is an excellent place to spot birds, amphibians and other wildlife. The trails are extremely well-maintained, but maybe a little tough for a stroller. There is a boardwalk over a wet meadow and a peat pond; a great place to spot cool plants and critters!

Plan B:

Rent bikes at The Bike Stop 43 Dudley St, Arlington, MA 02476.

Where to Eat Nearby:

Nick's place, Jackson's Kitchen, and Domino's pizza nearby
