+ Massachusetts Family Vacations | Top Activities Near Greenfield

After your family enjoys the included continental breakfast, you’ll be ready for a day of exploring! Massachusetts family vacations to Deerfield include plenty of fun nearby attractions including the Yankee Candle flagship store, Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardens, the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, the National Yiddish Book Center, the Basketball Hall of Fame, Springfield Quadrangle Museums – home to the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden, and Mass MoCA, a hip and happening museum of contemporary art is over the hills on a scenic drive to Williamstown.

The New England Air museum is 55 minutes to the south near Bradley Field and is particularly enthralling. I don’t know if you can still climb into the old B52, which was chilling, but the flight simulator is a blast.

Connecticut’s Mystic Aquarium is so much more than penguins and belugas, endearing as they are – it is also a living laboratory, and a place where you can go to follow the underwater expeditions of the Nautilus in real time.

After you return to the inn you can enjoy dinner at Champney’s Restaurant, then borrow a board game to play or a DVD to watch in your room. Be sure to check out Deerfield Inn’s specials & packages to help your plan your perfect getaway in MA!
