In addition to being the hometown of a few Hollywood celebrities (Comedian Louis C.K., Actor John Krasinski, Director Eli Roth, Actor B.J. Novak), Newton is one of few cities to have its own cookie named after it…Nabisco’s Fig Newton.
All the seasons are beautiful in Newton. Summer boasts farmers markets and swimming in Crystal Lake. Winter has cross-country skiing at the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. Spring in the ‘Garden City’ is reminiscent of Europe with its brick buildings and overflowing window boxes. Fall has New England-style churches with pumpkin-covered lawns and haunted houses for children at neighborhood community centers.
