Bring your furry art critic to explore over 60 large-scale modern and contemporary sculptures at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, located along the shore of Flint’s Pond in Lincoln. This 30-acre park is the largest of its kind in New England. Most of the exhibits are on loan to the museum and are constantly changing, making each visit to this attraction unique. Your pup is welcome to wander the trails with you as you marvel at the beautiful lawns, gardens, fields, and forests. Take a guided tour of the grounds, or set your own pace and pause for a picnic in the park. Dogs must remain leashed at all times. The park is open daily during the summer and Wednesdays through Sundays during the winter. Children under 12 and dogs enjoy complimentary admission when accompanied by a paying adult.
Following your art walk, rest up at the Westin Waltham Boston. Just 15 miles from downtown Boston, this hotel offers Fido plenty of grassy space to stretch his legs. In the evening, you are invited to sip a glass of champagne or have a cocktail in the Lobby Lounge or outdoor terrace. Other perks include complimentary treats at check-in and a Westin Heavenly Dog Bed for your pup.
