Don't miss the chance to dine at the celebrated Robert Morris Inn, near the ferry dock in Oxford. Award-winning crab cakes, grilled local rockfish and medallions of spring lamb are nicely matched by wines and best followed by pavlova with berries and other desserts. You can also overnight in one of the inn's heritage-style rooms (from $175).
From October through April, budding chefs can attend a cooking demo and lunch with chef Mark Salter ($68 per person). Check online for dates.
