Fishing in Boston: It’s closer than you think

leapingsalmon.jpg Would you believe that the large, beautiful pond in Jamaica plain is stocked with salmon? Well it is. Actually, it’s stocked with salmon, trout, bass, hornpout, and perch. Fresh, clear water, abundant wildlife, and a myriad of footpaths surrounding the pond create a beautiful backdrop for a morning, afternoon, or evening walk, run, or fishing trip.

Summit Avenue Park

Looking for a cheap date spot or maybe just a place to wind down after work? Try making the trek up to the top of Summit Avenue in Brighton. About .3 miles off of Comm. Ave sits a small park with a phenomenal view of the city. Grab a bottle of wine, some cheese and crackers, and watch the city from afar. The park is most romantic at night, and is a welcome refuge from the urban shuffle of the area.

Where to buy cheap furniture in Boston?

Generally speaking, the three best places to find cheap furniture around Boston are along Route 9, which becomes Huntington Ave, on Harvard Ave in Brighton/Allston, and at the Ikea in Stoughton, MA (781-344-IKEA)–about 30 minutes from Boston.

However, you can find everything super cheap, albeit in varying degrees of used, on http://www.craigslist.org.  Since so many people are constantly moving in and out of apartments and dorms in Boston, amazing deals may be found on this website by those in a rush t drop their stuff and get out of town.

Specific places are listed in Broke in Boston: A Guide to Living Cheap in the City 

Need a Pool to Cool Off?

For $10, you can spend the day at Puopolo Park/Mirabella Pool in the North End. The park sits on the Harbor, across from the Navy Yard. 475 R. Commercial St.

For $15, you can buy a pool pass for the year, but you have to buy in mid-May.
