Q. If you were to spend a lazy Saturday at TRIO Newton, what would you do?
Carrie: After enjoying my morning coffee on one of the two rooftop decks, I’d head to the Newton Historic Boathouse on the Charles River to go rowing or kayaking. Located only 10 minutes from TRIO, it’s a fantastic recreational resource.

Now, there are tons of people my age (early to mid-30s) looking to live in Newton. There are so many features that make it a great place for young professionals: It’s safe, a quick ride from the city, buildings are new and sleek, and the bar and restaurant scene has really taken off.
