I recently read an article from boston.com about what our beloved Rob Gronkowski missed about living in New England.  (He'll always be "our beloved" Gronk to me.... Yes, I'm a forever fan of him and TB12)

Here are a few of the places he misses:

F. Gilbert Hills State Park - describe on their site as:

F. Gilbert Hills is a 1000-acre state forest that offers 23 miles of trails through pine and oak. You can hike, mountain bike, and horseback ride, among other activities. The park is also part of the 30-mile Warner Trail that stretches from Sharon, Mass to Diamond Hill State park in Rhode Island. There are also 8 miles of motorbiking trails.
The OHV trail is accessed on High Rock Road, which is off of Route 1 North immediately before Motorcycles of Manchester. The approximate address is 100 High Rock Road.

Tavolino’s Gourmet Pizza - from their website:

Literally translated, Tavolino is Italian for “little table” and this was the founding concept behind our vision. In a world of chain restaurants, customers are often rushed or neglected, food quality is lacking, and emphasis on preparation is non-existent. From our attentive service to precise meal preparation we at Tavolino are here to ensure that your “little table” has the finest dining experience possible....we are proud to bring our superior Italian cuisine, homemade pasta, and fresh-baked bread to the tables of families and friends across Massachusetts.

 AMC theater at Patriot Place

Who doesn't love a theater!  This one is amazing. It's HUGE and it smells delicious!  One of Gronk's favorite places!

Boston Duck Tours

These are the historic tours that take you on land and water in the same vehicle.  You will learn all about the City of Boston on one of these tours.  They are not to be missed.  The best part of the Duck Tours are the ConDUCKtors.

Strega Waterfront and Arya Trattoria

Two are the best restaurants in all of the Boston area and yes, they are both Italian.  Gronk had to carb up!

Olneyville New York System

Best late-night eats for Gronk!  This place serves Rhode Island Red Hot dogs until the wee hours of the morning!
