DAY 2:

  • First fuel up at the Sturbridge Coffee House. Chocolate éclair shaken espresso and a croissant cinnamon roll, anyone?
  • Take a walk back in time to Old Sturbridge Village, a recreated 1830s rural New England town. Explore the 200+ acres and 40 historical buildings and chat with costumed historians as they work the tasks of the past.  Marvel at the 40,000 artifacts that were made or used by rural New Englanders between 1790 and 1840.  This is a day to remember.
