From the pilgrim’s landing at Plymouth Rock to the witch trials of Salem, the first Thanksgiving to the Boston Tea Party, Massachusetts is a small state with huge historical significance. It offers unique opportunities to enjoy nature’s beauty, experience New England hospitality, and learn about the story of our nation. While many people opt to sightsee and explore sites on their own, there’s something to be said about celebrating history itself – and what better way to do it than with the festivities of Heritage Days?
Scituate’s Heritage Days are an annual tradition, and they offer ways the whole family can encounter history and have a lot of fun doing it. This year’s Heritage Days are held from Saturday August 3 to Sunday August 4. Presented by the town’s Chamber of Commerce and made possible by the contributions of volunteers and town departments, these exciting festivals offer live music, entertainment, vendors, activities for the little ones and visits to local historical sites. Guests can also shop and dine at the renowned shops and eateries of Scituate Harbor, and check out all the happenings nearby.
No matter what draws you and your family to the area, Scituate is the perfect place to stay for all the fun. The historic Inn at Scituate is right on the Harbor, with ocean vistas and a famous lighthouse the kids are sure to love. The inn is a few walkable minutes from lively downtown Scituate and just under twenty minutes from the Marshfield Fairgrounds, where many other exciting seasonal events take place. Start planning your summer on the South Shore today and make some history of your own.
