I came to visit the Lizzie Borden house and took a tour with my family. It was well kept and our tour guide was informative, it was well worth the trip! We would definitely visit again.

My sister and I had made a day together and decided to visit The Lizzy Borden B.B and Museum. We arrived just after 12:15 and we knew that the tours run every hour until 3:00. So, we parked on the street but were pleasantly surprised...More

I really enjoyed my tour of the Lizzie Borden house. The tour was interesting and really gave an insight into the family, and what their lives must have been like. I found all aspects fascinating, not just the grim details. Highly recommend to anyone looking...More

This was a last minute decision we made because we had always wanted to see the house and had a free day. Our tour guide Richard was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the house, the family and the town. He made...More

While the story is intriguing and the history of the era is interesting the house itself was disappointing. None of the furniture or room decor items are original. Everything is a reproduction or copy or , in many cases, merely “typifies “ styles of the...More

Lunch recommendations needed (9 Replies)
We will be passing through around lunch time between LGA and Boston on Thur Oct 11- needing recommendations for a lunch spot. After lunch we plan on stopping in Fall River for a tour of the Lizzie Borden house before moving on to Boston for the night. The last Lizzie Borden tour starts at 3pm, so I'm looking for a place that is convenient to the interstate, quick on and off with easy parking, American food- sandwiches, burgers, diner food, pizza, a mom and pop place etc. We have never been to...More

Federal Hill (atwells avenue) offers many lunch choices.. From delis to family style restaurants to full service... You can park in one of the pay lot or for free on spruce steet .. Being a weekday, you might get lucky with a free spot.. And then just stroll.. For sure,you will find something you will enjoy.

Newport / Providence in Early April (3 Replies)
I will be in Providence on business for a couple of days in early April, and have decided to extend my time there to include the weekend before my meeting. I've been to Newport several times (I used to live in Boston), never Providence, and will have a car. What is Newport like before the usual season? I know some of the mansions are open, and the servants life tour looks interesting, and I would like to run the entire Cliff Walk (weather permitting). I'm more of an active person, and love...More

Newport doesn't really shut down like other seasonal towns, so spring is a great time to visit. Nice weather brings plenty of day trippers. I like to run Cliff Walk, I usually do the final loop from Wetmore St to Baileys Beach, where you'd have to walk in spots that are rough. In April the resident parking hasn't kicked in so you can park on some of the side streets near the beginning of the walk. Another great place to run is around Sachuest Point Wildlife Refuge in Middletown, unless it's...More
