"Great elementary schools and historically influenced shops"

Auburndale is situated along the banks of the Charles River which gives the backdrop of this neighborhood an enchanting feel. The area is home to some of the better schools in all of Boston, including Williams and Burr elementary schools and Lasell College.

There is a lot of history and old-age influence in the neighborhood. Many homes and historical sites are found on the National Registry of Historic Sites. There are also a large number of shops where tourists can find great little treasures and souvenirs. Some of the more popular shops that need not be missed include the Enchanted Child and Just Next Door Card Shop. While spending a day site-seeing and shopping, the best pizza in the area can be found near the shopping district at Tom’s Pizza.
