Spotlight: Mood boosting moments at New Town [Free read]

We don’t have to spell it out, everyone knows that 2020 has been a wild year so far.

It’s during these times that finding joy in the little things seems to take on a whole new level of importance. We are constantly on the pursuit for pick-me-ups and we think this list of moments that can be found in New Town will majorly help your mood, too!

Love being celebrated? Head to Axe Republic and try your shot at axe throwing. If you hit the coveted bullseye, you get to ring the victory bell. Hit THREE bullseyes and you’ll be able to add your name to the Marty’s Maniaxe wall. Extra bonus: “Its basically 75 minutes of therapy,” says owner, Nikki Montero. Getting high fives (or fist-bumps, now) from friends and being surrounded by laughter is always good for the soul. The moment that bell rings after your first bullseye, that’ll definitely lift your spirits.

Everyone knows that exercising releases endorphins (which make you happy). If you’re not ready to jump into weight-lifting, try one of the highly-coveted spin classes at Iron Bound Gym. Along with all the standard state-of-the-art equipment, this local’s gym is known for its amazing classes. You can now even reserve your spot online which will guarantee you a mood-boosting-rush, post-sweat!

The cutest way to brighten your day is by bringing your four-legged friend into New Town. Head to Nautical Dog to let your pup pick out their own treat from the cookie and bone bars! There’s nothing better than seeing your dog’s tail wagging with joy and we’re positive you’ll be rewarded with plenty of sloppy kisses.

If sweet treats are your go-to for creating smiles, Paul’s Deli is the place to go! Walking through the front door, you can’t miss the massive dessert case that displays a tower of cannolis, homemade cakes, cheesecakes, and more. You can’t tell us you’ve ever NOT smiled after having some chocolate, right?!

Looking for a free moment of zen? Stroll the peaceful streets of New Town and take a break by the fountain. With plenty of shade, benches, and people-watching to enjoy, this spot is one of our favorites.

Pro tip: visit after twilight and you’ll enjoy the added bonus of the twinkling string lights above!

These, and so many more moments of joy can be found while visiting New Town. Be sure to take a friend or the whole family with you during your visit so you can double the smiles!
