History buffs, fall fanatics, and lovers of family fun have plentiful reason to be inspired by the best of Massachusetts. Fall in the Bay State offers memorable adventures all ages.
Kids will love experiencing history first-hand at Old Sturbridge Village’s many fall festivals with cider boil-down demonstrations and antique apple tastings. Teens will love puzzle solving adventures at Mike's Maze in Sunderland or Davis Farmland’s Mega Maze in Sterling. Families eagerly await their visit to the local pumpkin patch while some insist fall that hasn’t arrived until they’ve made their yearly trip the orchard for apple picking. Foodies and fair-lovers will eat up the lively BBQ Fest at Wachusett Mountain and Springfield’s The Big E. Everyone looks forward to celebrating local food at a Clam Fest, Scallop Fest, or Apple Festival.
Nothing is lovelier than a meditative drive along foliage-lined back roads on your way to Lanni Orchards or scenic Wareham to kick off their cranberry harvest with an festival that is as educational as it is fun!
