Downtown Norwood has a great downtown feel as it has transformed into several shops, restaurants and coffee shops. It has also been able to hold its own against malls and plazas that have been built around town and in towns nearby. There is also a great common in the center of town that is used during the summer for weekly concerts on the common. Norwood also has some stunning architecture being lead by Town Hall, St. Catherine's Catholic Church, the movie cinema and the Town Diner. Getting away from downtown is the Day House, which houses the Norwood Historical Society, and the stunning Norwood High School. "South Norwood" part of town gives you the feel of the old tripledecker flats originally seen in Boston.


Norwood also has its own golf course, the Norwood Country Club on Rte 1 heading towards Dedham.


Norwood is home to the original AutoMile on Rte 1 which houses dealerships from almost every car manufacturer in the world.





Rte 1 has several chain hotels for you to choose from.
