I adore Westboro. Many of my friends live here. There are awesome restaurants here and a great local bookstore. I used to work here for a while! And, best of all, it has Stump Pond. Stump Pond was a forest area which they flooded to make a pond - but they didn't take out the trees. Over the years the trees fell over, making a really cool kayaking location. There just aren't many like it!
Definitely visit Tatnuck Booksellers in Westboro. Also, I enjoy Cheng Du.
Here are all my Stump Pond photos -
