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!

Danielle was our tour guide. She was phenomenal! Very informative. She absolutely knew just about everything there was to know about the house, the family, trial etc. She was able to answer all questions...even the curve balls :). Very good. I would recommended it to anyone looking for something to do in Fall River.

I am not a wine drinker but friends and family are. We have on back there twice now. Everyone enjoys the Wine Tasting.
During the summer and until the end of September they have outdoor concerts on the weekends, unfortunately we have missed them. Great venue.

Colt State Park

Reviewed By WIJRD - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

We did a "drive thru", Having not been here previously it was a very rewarding experience to have visited. There are many walking/biking paths. Lots of places to pull over to the water's edge and enjoy the view, the breeze, the days sunshine; or to go fishing or have a picnic. Colt state Park is a GEM to have in the community. I lok forward to returning.

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.

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.

Battleship Cove

Reviewed By Mike R - Bridgewater, New Jersey

The most amazing display of naval firepower you will ever see. Battleship, Cruiser, Destroyer, PT Boats, Submarine and Cruiser. Definitely worth a visit. You can find coupons on line to limit the cost,. I don't think that kids under 8 should be visiting here. There are steep stairs and small hatches to crawl through.It will take a day and a half to see everything in detail so allow some time.....but definitely tour this site!

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.

Reviewed By worldfamousjeff - Austin, Texas

On a second unplanned stop here two years after the first, I was impressed all over again. It was a sunny day with a light breeze, perfect for the shady, grassy seating outdoors. The staff was friendly and the beer was good. It's a great spot to hang out for an hour or two as long as the weather is nice. I think this can be a good spot for all ages because of the corn hole games set up and plenty of grassy area for the kids to expend energy. ...
