Music at the Mall US Map & Phone & Address

The Mall at Chestnut Hill, 199 Boylston St. (Rte. 9) Newton; (617) 965-3037

Every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, the Mall offers free concerts from 2 PM. to 4 p.m. in the large, airy central space on the main level. Local jazz groups and vocalists are the usual fare; sometimes you can hear a classical ensemble or the cast of one of Boston’s musicals. Obviously they’re doing it to bring in shoppers, but hey no one’s going to twist your arm if you just want to listen.

Croy Hill and Bar Hill can be done separately or together as pleasant circular walks in conjunction with the travel destination. Start at Craigmarloch Bridge and walk up the Dullatur-Cumbernauld road. About 70m on, go right through gates to start the traverse of Croy Hill.
