I was just put in the position of recommending things to do for a friend who is driving up from Rhode Island to drop someone off in Newton- rather than drive back an hour and then turn around again in the evening, she wants to hang around for the day and asked me for suggestions of what to do. She will happen to be near Needham St, so I recommended nearby shopping and eats, but also Echo Bridge and Charles river kayaking.

Without worrying whether your response is timely enough to help my friend, what would you tell someone who was “stuck” in Newton on a nice summer day?
