Haunted Happenings

Salem’s connection to Halloween begins with the tragic events that unfolded during the Salem Witch Trials. The 19 innocent victims who lost their lives in 1692 were not witches, they were only so accused due to Puritan beliefs of the time. The Salem Witch Trials were later revived with Arthur Miller’s 1953 work, The Crucible, and again in 1992 during the tercentenary of the events and the unveiling of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial. By 1982, the City has planned the first Salem Haunted Happenings Festival during Halloween weekend. The festival was an effort to provide family-friendly events for guests who were interested in visiting the “Witch City.” Following the first festival’s success with about 50,000 guests in attendance, the annual event has continued to grow each season, drawing everyone from families, couples, history buffs, and Halloween enthusiasts from all over the world.

Yankee Candle Village

Far more than just a candle store, Yankee Candle® Village in South Deerfield, Massachusetts is one of New England’s favorite day trip destinations for the entire family, and a special place where magic comes to life with family-friendly events all year long. Not only will you find over 200 new, classic, and
limited-edition fragrances and candle accessories, but you can also personalize candles to capture cherished memories in scents and wax, catch snowflakes indoors at the Bavarian Village, satisfy your sweet tooth, shop for toys, gifts, home décor, and kitchen and garden items, and celebrate Christmas
every day.

Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory

Through the double doors lies the conservatory.  Your first glimpse is one of awe.  Some 3,000 butterflies of all colors, shapes, sizes and varieties go dancing past.  Flight Attendants are scattered throughout the conservatory, waiting to help you identify the many different butterflies.  Brilliantly colored koi rise to the surface of the pond to greet you.  Along the sides of the paths, we’ve tucked park benches for you to sit and relax and watch for as long as you need.

Historic Deerfield

Prepare to travel back in time with a visit to Historic Deerfield. Historic Deerfield Inc., founded in 1952, is an outdoor museum that interprets the history and culture of early New England and the Connecticut River Valley. Visitors can tour twelve carefully-preserved antique houses dating from 1730 to 1850, and explore world-class collections of regional furniture, silver, textiles, and other decorative arts on display in the authentic period houses and in the Flynt Center of Early New England Life, a state-of-the-art museum facility featuring exhibitions and a visible storage area.

Springfield Museums

Located in the heart of downtown Springfield, Massachusetts, the Springfield Museums offer access to five world-class museums, including the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum and the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum, the newest museum on the Quadrangle, is devoted to Springfield native Theodor Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss! The first floor features interactive exhibits exploring Dr. Seuss’s Springfield roots and providing opportunities to experiment with new sounds and vocabulary, play rhyming games, and invent stories–all in line with Geisel’s revolutionary role in changing how we learn to read. The second floor, curated by Geisel’s two step daughters and great nephew, recreates Geisel’s studio and living room (with the furniture and art materials he actually used) and features never before publicly displayed art, family photographs and letters, and the original Geisel Grove sign which used to hang in Forest Park. You can even find Theophrastus, the toy stuffed dog Ted Geisel’s mother gave to him when he was a boy in Springfield.

Storrowtown Village Museum

Storrowton Village Museum is a reconstructed village of nine authentic 18th and 19th century buildings from Massachusetts and New Hampshire, assembled around a traditional town green. Located on the grounds of Eastern States Exposition and The Big E, the museum offers hands-on educational programs
and guided tours to share the history and traditions of New England.

Quabbin Reservoir

Today, along with the Wachusett Reservoir, it is the primary water supply for Boston, some 65 miles to the east. Construction of the Quabbin required impoundment of the Swift River and the taking of 4 towns. The four lost towns of the Quabbin Reservoir — Dana, Enfield, Greenwich, and Prescott — are not your typical “ghost towns.” You won’t find dusty streets, old saloons and blowing tumbleweeds here. After all, these ghost towns are underwater. The foundations remain, but their former residents have long since settled elsewhere.

Old Sturbridge Village

Old Sturbridge Village, the largest outdoor history museum in the Northeast, depicts a rural New England town of the 1830s. Step inside more than 40 original buildings, and explore homes, meetinghouses, a district school, country store, bank, working farm, three water-powered mills, and trade shops – all situated on more than 200 scenic acres. Talk with authentically costumed historians and see heritage breed farm animals. Discover the endless ways to immerse yourself in the Village.

We’ll drive the bus ON THE BOARDWALK through Nautical, Holiday, and Adventure Lands with a soundtrack signal playing traditional Holiday music on the radio. Festive fish, musical crabs, and hardworking elves – all in brightly colored lights against the moonlit Atlantic Ocean – are the stars of Bay Port Credit Union Holiday Lights at the Beach. They are joined by light-up Santa and a 40-foot tall Christmas tree erected on the beach and in the beautiful parks along the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. The light display includes archways along the entire length of the spectacular light display with fish swimming overhead and spectacular light tunnels to drive through. Military tributes to the region’s strong Armed Forces community are featured prominently throughout the display.

Cape Henry Lighthouse

While the original Cape Henry Lighthouse is the 4th oldest lighthouse in the country, it was the first lighthouse authorized by the U.S. government, dating from 1792. It was the first federal construction project authorized by President George Washington after the Revolutionary War. In 1881, a newer lighthouse was constructed 350 feet from the original. The Cape Henry Lighthouse has long served to protect and guide vessels entering and leaving the Chesapeake Bay. Today two lighthouses stand at Cape Henry, guardians to the gateway of the Chesapeake Bay. They have been placed on the US National Register of Historic Places and have been designated as a National Historic Landmark.
