Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Ice Cream Places Near Cambridge

ice cream coneIce Cream Places Near Cambridge  Hot weather’s on the way – and hot weather means ice cream. Hot and humid weather is the only excuse you need to satisfy your craving for a nice, big ice cream cone.

Here are some of my favorite spots for a cone. And since hot weather is also a good excuse for an air conditioned road trip (especially since I don’t have air conditioning at home!) these ice cream stands are outside of Cambridge, just a short drive away:

Bedford Farms in Bedford Center is one of my family’s favorites. Delicious ice cream, a place to sit on the lawn, and a quick drive from Cambridge.

Bedford Farms Ice Cream is located at 18 North Street, Bedford MA.  Open year round.  Check the website for more info. Summer hours are Mon – Sat 11am – 10pm and Sunday noon to 10pm.

Kimball Farm has three locations.  Carlisle is closest to Cambridge and a nice scenic drive.  There are farm animals to watch while you eat.  If you want to make a day of it and plan an outing for the entire family, the Westford location has a driving range, bumper boats, miniature golf, a midway with arcade games and more.  The location I know best is in Jaffrey NH where Kimball’s took over longtime favorite, Silver Ranch

Be warned – the kiddie cone at Kimball’s is most shops’ large.  You’ll be overwhelmed by the small size cone.  And large servings make for large crowds – the parking lot is often packed and the line long.

Check the Kimball Farm website for hours and more information.

Johnson’s Drive-in in Groton Mass was a pleasant surprise when we ended up there one night after a long day.  The fried clams were great and so was the ice cream.  It’s the kind of roadside joint I like – not too fancy (not at all in fact!), not expensive, and mighty tasty food.

Johnson’s is on Route 119 at 164 Boston Road, Groton MA.  Call 978-448-6840 for hours. 

I’m sure there are lots of fabulous ice cream places out there.  What are your favorites?
