Trip Report Kids around New England

Jump to last reply

If you don't travel with young kids, then this report may bore you.....

I see posts now and then about families looking for things to do with their young children. So here is my informal trip report about my week of day trips around northern New England.

Day one: Woke up to rain. Time to change plans. So it's off to Lawrence Mass to check out Imajine That. This is an indoor play place in an old mill building. It's just okay. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit, but if you're in the area and need something to do, go for it. The place was clean. They have a no shoe policy that was mostly enforced, but not fully. Staff is very inattentive. In fact, all they seem to do is sit at the front desk. They really need to be up walking around, checking on things, tidying up, keeping kids in line when the parents are too busy texting, etc. There is a climbing structure, a bounce house, a "grocery store", an art area, a dress up area, a puzzle area....so lots of options. The biggest issue is that they only have two bathrooms. A place that is loaded with children of potty-training age needs to have LOTS of bathrooms, not two.

On the way home, we decide to stop at Lavoie's farm stand in Hollis. Great peaches right now. I love this farm. Nice family. Check 'em out sometime.

Tomorrow it's off to Davis Farmland in Sterling Mass. First time there.....
