Stone Bridge Farm

Picture Yourself at a Cranberry Harvest. You will hear about the history of cranberries, learn how they are grown and harvested and then you will put on a pair of chest waders and go out onto a flooded bog with cranberries floating around you. This is a great photo opportunity! Visit our cranberry cottage for fresh cranberries, jams, honey and more!

Reviewed By Kristine G - Massachusetts

My son suggested we make reservations and I'm so glad we did. We visited today and it was wonderful. Scott explained that cranberries, blueberries, and Concord grapes were native to Massachusetts; showed us the equipment they use to dry harvest and then sort and collect the cranberries; and introduced us to Joanne, his wife. Joanne gave us our water boots/pants; guided us into the bog; and took great pictures for us. We stopped in the store on the way out and bought chocolate covered cranberries, fresh cranberries, cranberry sauce, and honey. We highly recommend visiting if you can.

New Bedford Whaling Museum

The largest museum in America devoted to human interaction with whales, the history of whaling and its impact, and the history of Southcoast Massachusetts, the Whaling Museum houses an extensive collection of art and artifacts relating to whaling during the age of sail, socioeconomic history of the region, whale ecology, marine mammal conservation, and ocean health. Visitors can marvel at massive whale skeletons, board the world's largest ship model - the Lagoda - see an exhibit about the world's longest painting, and explore hands-on learning activities in the Casa dos Botes Discovery Center. The Whaling Museum is a compelling destination that inspires all visitors to reflect on the complex issues that shaped the past, remain critical today, and inform a sustainable future.

We loved this museum. Even if you have been to other Whaling Museums, this one is great! Come and take the kids. They will love the exhibits. We loved it also and even came back another day!

From the year that the beacon was first lit in 1838, this historic lighthouse, located at the entrance of Mattapoisett Harbor, is still in operation today.

One of my favorite local spots! Beautiful view of Mattapoisett Harbor! Picturesque! Watch the sun rise and set! Great place for picnics (tables available), relaxing, and kite-flying. Well-kept grounds. Restrooms available. Free parking.

Running Brook Vineyard & Winery

Reviewed By Sarah K

We'd just come from a winery that was a little too posh and corporate for our tastes. RB is decidedly neither of those things; tastings and the fermenting tanks are in a barn structure. The wines are unique - chardonnays fermented on top of sediments from reds, dry vidal blancs, etc. - and were, overall, amazing. I tend to buy a bottle or two when I go to a winery; I bought a case here and regret not buying more. I wish I were a local; they have a membership with discounts. The people were friendly; the wines were great.... I couldn't ask for a better winery.

New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park

New Bedford was the mid 19th century's preeminent whaling port and for a time the richest city in the world. Whaling, a leading 19th century enterprise, contributed to America's economic and political vitality. New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park helps to preserve, protect, and interpret certain districts, structures, and artifacts that are associated with the history of whaling and related social, economic, and environmental themes for the benefit and inspiration of this and future generations. The park encompasses 34 acres spread over 13 city blocks and includes the New Bedford Whaling Museum, the Seamen's Bethel, the schooner Ernestina, and the Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum. These efforts will be undertaken in partnership with the city of New Bedford, local and regional institutions, and the Inupiat Heritage Center in Barrow, Alaska. Address is for the National Park Visitor Center.

Scrimshaw, coachwhipping, an original whaleboat, pairpoint glass, a scale model replica of a whaling ship, whale info. Much history an original equipment from this formerly vibrant whaing capitol of America. There are activities for children 4 and older by my estimate . We spent 2 hrs, and then had to add a quarter to the meter to see the scrimshaw.

Fort Phoenix State Reservation

Reviewed By Rita S - Brevard County, Florida

Although not much remains of the actual fortress itself, the exhibits, memorial plaques, cannons, & staffed flag pole make for an interesting and exciting day trip and provide an overview of the historical significance of this area. Walk the grounds, examine the architectural style, the rocks & terrain. Nice view of bay.
