Fruitlands Museum

Fruitlands Museum is comprised of four separate museums, showcasing Transcendentalists, Shakers, Native Americans and American paintings on 210 acres of meadows and woods with 2.5 miles of trails and a breathtaking view of the Nashua River Valley. The Fruitlands Museum Store sells fine crafts by local artists and the Museum Café, which is open during the main season (April 15 through November 7), focuses on locally sourced, sustainable cuisine reflective of the heritage of New England.

Interesting even on a bitterly cold day. We were passing on a trip to see the trees in the fall and saw the sign to the museum and entered out of curiosity. The farm itself and its history is very interesting comprising an early experiment in 'Shaker' communal living followed by another in offering work for vagrants. The house interiors are particularly interesting as there are many examples of 'Shaker' furniture. The most surprising thing was to find that the small art gallery had some of the best American paintings of the 19th century including by Alfred Bierstadt, Weir, Kensett and others. Unfortunately, we were too cold to appreciate the extensive walks around the property due to lack of time but mostly the cold! A return trip would be good if I was ever that way again.

Nashua River Rail Trail

Reviewed By SciFi_Seeker - Ayer, MA

This is a great trail that is paved and wide enough for traffic in both directions. There is plenty of parking at the end in Ayer and at several locations along the way. the trail stretches from Ayer through Groton, Pepperell and up in to Nashua. The total trail length is just over 12 miles.

Doyle Community Park

Meander along trails that pass through woodlands, meadows, and gardens, all part of an elegant former estate that is also home to the LEED-certified Doyle Center.

Wouldn't have thought you could find such nice woods right along route 2 in Leominster. Ran 2.5 miles mixing it up on single-track, mowed grass trail, and handicapped accessible stone. Very enjoyable.

Roll on America

Reviewed By Paula M - Lunenburg, Massachusetts

We have always loved this place. If you get there early (right when it opens), it is pretty quiet and the kids have a great time. Today, however, did not turn out well. We got there right at noon (it opened at noon). We had laser tag passes and they took our names and told us it might be until 12:30 that we could play laser tag because they need enough people to sign up for a game. Honestly, my kids would have played by themselves and been happy. But in any case, we skated for over an hour and then they wanted to go wait over by laser tag. After waiting for 30 more minutes (it was 1:30 now - 1.5 hours after opening), someone came over (along with a HUGE group from a local martial arts center). My kids were first in line, but were told that they could not go in....that only those in the martial arts group could. My kids were almost in tears. If we were even going to be allowed to play after the group, it would have been at least 4 games until we could go in. They just wanted to go home right after that. They didn't get to play their game of laser tag, and I'm not sure they are going to rush back to this place after that. Such a shame because they have always had so much fun there. :(

Great Wolf Lodge - Water Park

Reviewed By rizzo0904 - NH

Just got back from a 2 night stay. I used a 48 hour discount sale code near Black Friday and reserved a standard room for $600 for the two night stay. Our room was in the main section, overlooking the lobby. It's LOUD. We had to turn on the fan portion of the heat in order to drown out the lobby noise. They have events planned as late as 10pm, right outside your window.

Check in was fairly quick and easy. No complaints there.

Elevators are very slow...we used the stairs instead.

We had our 7 and 9 year old boys with us. Their favorite part, hands down, was MagiQuest. We had them share one wand and the game cost a total of $30. They achieved Master Magi status and then stuck around to help other kids slay the dragon. They never asked to use the arcade, miniature golf, ropes course, etc. They just wanted to play Magi Quest and swim, which was good for us since they charge for EVERYTHING.

The pool areas were clean with many lifeguards on duty. Get there early to secure a table. The water park area was smaller than I expected, but the kids had fun.

We brought our own food for breakfast and lunch. We went out to dinner. So we never tried any of the dining on site. A Taste of Vietnam was incredible. Il Forno was not.

Overall, the kids had a blast, but I have no desire to ever return. One night would have been enough.

Fitchburg Art Museum

Reviewed By Distance09 - Charlotte, North Carolina

The museum is small and has excellent permanent and temporary displays. I normally do not find Egyptian displays hold my interest. I spent about an hour and will go back. It is so well done. The African gallery is also very interesting and well done. There was a temporary photography exhibit on the first floor that was hot and cold for me but that is just a matter of likes. Overall this is one of the finest museums I have visited. Go and enjoy. Ask about Thurston.

Coggshall Park

Reviewed By Eileen S - Fitchburg, Massachusetts

I have been to Coggshall Park on many different occasions with various groups of people, from youngsters in small groups and school groups, to adults of all ages. It is an enjoyable place for all. There is a walkway surrounding Mirror Lake which is an easy walk through the woods and over the dam. A lot of the walkway is paved, so even people with limited mobility can take advantage of around half. Swans and geese are swimming in the water and can be observed going about their daily lives, as well as turtles climbing on to rocks. Other other pond creatures can be observed from time to time. There is a playground for the younger kids, and tables throughout the park to enjoy picnics, and benches by the lake's walkways to sit and relax. Big attractions are the picturesque gazebo and the Stone House, which can be rented very affordably for various events. No matter who you go with, by yourself, with a couple, or with a big group, you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated. And as a bonus, the entrance and parking are free.
