Have you been up to Lowell, MA lately? I had not been for many, many years and on Saturday we took a little excursion. Mill No 5 in Lowell is so easy to find and so worth the trip. It's quite a wonderful experience. First you have a mixed-use space that is so wonderful in it's concept and simplicity. Great old mill space, tons of refurbished vintage interior to set the stage for a warm feel, great coffee shop, great small theatre and great little yoga studio. There are several wonderful small shops with sole proprietors speaking to you about their products like an old world European shopping experience. I loved everything about it. Lot's of great things to do there, live music and events and a maker space to open up this Spring. It's worth checking out.
