ATMOSPHERE: We loved the fun atmosphere here - live animals, easy access restrooms, lots of fun fall stuff to do for sure!

APPLES: Tons of variety here - and we were REALLY happy they had Honey Crisp apples too! There was no shortage of varieties here, and the apples tasted GREAT!! The trees were not crazy tall, so we could reach whatever we wanted.

OTHER STUFF: Yes, they had a huge pumpkin patch -- see pictures! They also had a blueberry patch (only for the summer though). And they had a stand that sold roasted corn on the cob = yummy! Also, they had an ice cream stand, that also sold Apple Crisp (delicious, and a nice sized portion for sure! And lots of bakery items (Snickerdoodle cookies, Apple Cider donuts, popcorn, brownies, maple syrup, etc).

HOURS: You MUST get to the place before 4 PM, as they stop the hay rides to the apple orchard by this time (and the orchard itself shuts down at 4:30). The ice cream / apple crisp stand shuts down at 5 PM. And the inside farm-stand is open until 5:30.

STAFF: Friendly - and even families work here (a mother and her daughter worked on the day we came! It is a very family-friendly type place! And the Manager (Ellen?) was VERY NICE!

PRICES: We got a large bag, and one small bag (for picking our apples) = $60. Bakery items were priced reasonably.

So we DO recommend this place - take the whole family, and enjoy the experience! And get there on time, before they close. It is a fun place, with lots of apple varieties, and very good quality tasting apples!

Benson Park

Reviewed By Lauralanglois - Hudson, New Hampshire

Best local place to go cross country running. With just enough trails to get 5m in and enough variety to keep you from getting bored, Bensons is a winner! Lots of different terrain, from woods to field, to marshland, it's a fantastic place to walk,
Picnic, fish or just explore.

Mines Falls is a lovely "Green Space" in Nashua. There are walk and bike paths that take you through wooded areas and along a small river / canal. There are also softball fields for outdoor sporting activities.

Boott Cotton Mills Museum

This former textile mill is a reminder of the changes the Industrial Revolution brought to Lowell, and to America.

Reviewed By JRF-WS - Winston Salem, North Carolina

I have an even greater appreciation for fabric than I did before visiting. The effects of the cotton industry on women's rights, slavery, labor unions, and the Industrial Revolution are fascinating to explore. You get a small (but very loud) feel for what it was like to work in the cotton mills. Ranger Stephen, and the weavers in the mill room, are extremely knowledgable and passionate about the history of Lowell and the mills. So glad we stumbled on the opportunity to explore this important chapter of US History.

Goss Farm

Reviewed By Tripking07 - New Hampshire

I said it was fun for everyone - I mean it. For the kids there is tractor pulls, hay rides, and a little animal farm. For the adults there is a small farm stand, Corn gun's (where you shoot the corn at targets with a pressure launcher - tons of fun), kettle corn they make on the spot...and for both there is a world class Corn Maze (which is huge) and of course ICE CREAM.... oh bye the way the ice cream is fantastic!!! The owners were out talking with everyone and the mini amusement park was very inexpensive. They make it affordable to go and make 2-3 hours of fun for a good size family for under $30. I couldnt do that anywhere.

Did i mention the owners were awesome. The live right on sight and the one of the owners told me the ice cream is fresh.

This place is a small town feel attraction and I LOVE THAT. It is in a rural location so don't be shy if it's not crazy busy...go and have fun. We purchased three BEAUTIFUL potted annual's for $5 each which is super cheap.

We will bring the kids back time and time again....I hope the surrounding towns support what this family is doing because they made quite an investment as it's a special place.

Thanks to the hospitable owners.

Pinball Wizard Arcade

Reviewed By Miike L - Dracut, Massachusetts

If you want to escape for a little while this may be a good option. They have plenty of pin ball machines, some classics. Can't always tell how many may be working because they are largely mechanical and do tend to break down. They also have video games which you may remember from your earlier years.
When you go in you can buy a bunch of tokens which are accepted in the machines. Just chill out and have fun.

SkyVenture

Reviewed By Elaine H - Boston, Massachusetts

We took our granddaughters here last week, and it was the highlight of their visit. Their instructor, Mike, could not have been nicer. Before donning their flight suits, Mike explained the procedure and instructed all in the use of the hand signals that would be used. He was very attentive and personable. Even those of us observing the sky dive had a great time watching. Afterwards, the girls went on the fish pipe ride which they also loved. It was only 90 seconds long but they had a great time. The facility is very clean, and the staff is first rate. Though it is on the expensive side, I'd highly recommend a visit here.

We visited today with friends from out of town and we loved it! We played string bowling and arcades. The place was clean, quiet, well-maintained, and very affordable. We spent ~$10 on tokens and had plenty of playtime. The owner was also very friendly and helpful. We plan to go back with other friends who visit with kids. Would highly recommend for parties and a weekend stop!

A group of garden ladies ventured through the gardens to watch the winged critters. We saw quail, finch, koi fish, various types of butterflies and caterpillars. We enjoyed a nice question and answer time with staff member Jacky! She helped us find special spots. We were fascinated. Definitely an educational and enjoyable morning.
We loved all the colorful sights. A Special Thanks to Anna, Jacky and Joan!!!
We appreciated all your kind help and guidance.

Lowell National Historical Park

This park commemorates Lowell's integral part in America's Industrial Revolution.

Reviewed By johnm01453 - Fitchburg, Massachusetts

I remember working in a spinning mill when I was younger. You hear the same noise and can understand what the people went through. The canal ride is a wonderful ride and they explain how Lowell utilized the river. Going thru the locks was fantastic.
