About Discover Brookline

Discover Brookline is the Brookline Chamber of Commerce's digital business directory, where you can find exactly what you're looking for -- or, stumble upon something new and unexpected. Peruse the directory to get a taste of Brookline's shops, restaurants, hotels, museums, and more. You can search by a neighborhood, category, or other labels like BIPOC or women-owned businesses. Check out the blog to keep up to date with Brookline happenings, and to learn from locals their favorite things to do. 

Thanks to support from the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism and My Local MA, and our Sponsors, the Brookline Chamber of Commerce partnered with a Boston-area web developer, a local artist, and a photographer to create Discover Brookline.
