Things to do in Harvard, Massachusetts

The rural community of Harvard, Massachusetts has an interesting and well preserved history that extends to the year of 1732 when it was first incorporated. Harvard town is situated in Worcester County, 22 miles northeast of Worcester and 32 miles west of Boston. Residents usually enjoy the intimacy that this small town brings from its fourth of July parade to the

Apple Blossom Festival.

The little town of Harvard is the best place to relax and unwind. Being surrounded with large fields, lined trees, rolling hills and wetlands. Here are some of the suggested things to do in Harvard:

Where to learn the history & culture

Harvard features Victorian and colonial homes, winding roads with lined trees and stone walls, historic farm houses and orchards. The most well known place in Harvard is called Fruitlands, the former experiment site of communal living led by Bronson Alcott and Charles Lane in 1843. Fruitlands Museum is the home to 5 collections of 210 acres of meadows and woods. Learn about the lives of Native Americans, Shakers and Transcendentalists. Be inspired with the contemporary exhibits and outdoor sculptures in the Art Museum. Connect with the culture and nature by engaging in the exhibits and programs held at Fruitlands.

Where to go for leisure & recreational activities

Offering over a total of 2,000 acres conservation land throughout Harvard, most of this land are interconnected by walking trails. One of the biggest amenity in town is Bare Hill Pond. The 316 acre pond is the best place for boating, fishing, sailing and swimming. The pond is used for different recreation all throughout the year. Swimming lessons are offered in the summer while cross country skiing and skating is available during winter. This very large pond is great for recreational and wildlife enthusiasts. Boating activities are very high during summer time while ice fishing remains the most popular activity during winter.

Where to get the best spa & beauty treatments

After a long day of learning and recreation, Harvard also offers the best beauty and spa treatments. One of the established in town is Harvard Therapeutic Massage. Consists of licensed practitioners, they offer different therapeutic and relaxation treatments such as Myofacial Release and Reiki Treatment.

Not far from town is another well known establishment called the Essential Therapies Day Spa. With a touch of European flair, it has an inviting environment for healing and relaxation. It offers extensive spa services ranging from facials, massages, pedicures to waxing. It also offers many in-house and branded facial products like creams & serums. One of the products it is best known for is the vitamin c serum. It offers many different varieties, from the plain vanilla ones to ones with added ingredients like vitamin E & hyaluronic acid. Before you use a vitamin c serum, do conduct your own research. For example, this article on Beyond Talk reviews vitamin c serums for face use and is a good place to start.

If you are looking to treat your hair, Harvard, Massachusetts has plenty to offer too. From hair salons like Ayer Beauty Salon, Innovations Hair Salon to Super Cuts, they offer a range of services like hair coloring, rebonding, straigtening to hair cuts. If you are looking for more specialize services like treating hair loss, then you would need to visit a specialist. PK Walsh, The Sophia Medspa & Leonard Hair Transplant Associates are some of the established specialists in Massachusetts you can visit. Services offered include hair transplants, laser hair loss treatment and also topical solutions. You can also purchase at home products like serums and shampoos that can help with thinning hair and stimulate hair growth. Again, before using any of these products, you should do your due research. This article on the most effective hair growth shampoos is a great resource.
