Bring the kids for outdoor adventure in tree tops & nature trails in Massachusetts

Outdoor Adventure happens outdoors, obviously, on nature trails; along canopy rope walks in the treetops; at live animal habitats, and on excursions through forests and meadows. In Central Massachusetts, outdoor adventure also can happen indoors, at nature and science exhibits and learning programs of all kinds. Bring the family to see nature and learn from experts on weekends, rainy days, and during school vacations. Kids love to play with as they learn about the world around them.

Inn, lodges are prime location for village and outside-the-village adventures

Stay at the Old Sturbridge Inn & Reeder Family Lodges and enjoy all that Old Sturbridge Village and the surrounding area have to offer. Stroll through the 19th century village through covered wooden bridges and glorious gardens, dropping in at the sawmill or blacksmith. Want to explore outside the village? Check out Six Flags New England (100 rides!), the 850 exotic animals at Southwick Zoo or nearby botanic gardens. Or hike through forest and meadow trails at the Ecotarium. Or maybe something a little more adrenaline-pumping? An aerial forest adventure awaits at Storrs Adventure Park. Come back to your lodging to relax by the pool, hit the exercise room or, for the kids, romp around on the playground.
