South of Boston/Plymouth offers indoor & outdoor fun for children and families

The South of Boston region is a gold mine of exploration for families and children. In the Plymouth, a good place to start is the Jenney Grist Mill, a reproduction of a gristmill that served the community in the 1600s. The mill grinds corn into flour while the miller, in period dress, answers questions about life in 17th century Plymouth. Among the most important attractions is Plimoth Patuxet, where visitors can roam a reproduction Wampanoag Native American homestead and a 1627 English Village. Also in Plymouth, a reproduction of the Mayflower welcomes visitors. You might be shocked at the small size of the vessel that brought 102 English people to the New World.
This region is cranberry country, and at Flax Pond Farms in the nearby town of Carver visitors can see the cranberry bogs, learn how the berries are farmed, and buy cranberry foods and gifts. Visitors who arrive in September and October could be rewarded with a front-row viewing of the harvesting process. The town of South Carver is home to Edaville USA, with its two-mile train ride for parents and young children. The railroad hosts Day Out With Thomas events through the summer and special activities during the National Cranberry Festival in the fall. Edaville is famous for its magnificent display of lights at Christmas.
The South of Boston region includes the city of New Bedford, where visitors from around the world marvel at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. Also in this region, Battleship Cove in the city of Fall River is home to the USS Massachusetts, the submarine Lionfish, and other World War II-era fighting ships. Visitors are welcome to explore the vessels, to visit the museum, and to ride the nearby historic carousel.
