Plimoth Plantation

There’s nothing more kid-friendly than a slice of history that can answer you right back. Experience life as it was for Massachusetts’ first European settlers—and their hosts, the Wampanoag—at Plimoth Plantation. Walk among the tiny timber-framed houses of a 17th-century English village, learn how to play the ancient tribal game of hubbub at the Wampanoag Homesite along the Eel River, and encourage the brood to ask plenty of questions: They’ll learn more than they ever could in history class.
