Earlier this week, the “Great Places Commission” announced its list of 1,000 great places in Massachusetts. With the list, it hopes “to boost visitation to Massachusetts as well as give local residents the opportunity to visit known and unknown historic sites, cultural venues, and natural landscapes.”

I am a sucker for this type of thing. Thanks in part to my birthday lists, I have already been to 53 out of 83 great places in Boston. Out of the 7 great places in Brookline (where I live), I’ve been to 5. Out of 16 great places in Cambridge, I’ve been to 9.

Now I have to finish the list, of course. Any locals care to join?

Now I need to finish the list, of course. The commission fulfilled its mission
