Fall is one of our most favorite times of year here on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The weather has cooled and weekends can be spent exploring our beautiful little corner of New England. Visiting farm stands, corn mazes, and spending a lazy afternoon apple picking are some of our preferred activities. We invite you to start your day with us at the Tea House with a warm cup of coffee and a scrumptious meal before you head out to enjoy the many fall festivals and activities that this area has to offer.
- Farm Fun – Connors Farm in Danvers, Massachusetts offers a “Wild West” themed corn maze this year. Get lost for hours or use the hints to find your way out quickly. Traditional hayrides, pumpkin picking and cider donuts are always a popular treat! If you are more adventurous, take a ride on their mechanical bull, watch the piglets race the track or even try out the “destruction zone” where you can sling pumpkins using a huge sling shot or shoot corn out of a large cannon. There is something for everyone at our neighbor’s farm. Connor’s is right down the road from the Tea House and offers you a great chance to relax on our patio after a day at the farm.
- Historical Sites – The North Shore is not lacking in some amazing historical sites from the longest running Art Colony in Gloucester to the Historical downtown of Salem. The area has so much to offer. Visit New England gives excellent guidance when choosing the historical sites that interest you the most. Don’t forget about the first period home right across the street at the Wenham Museum. It will bring you back to the colonial days!
- Sea and Sun – There are many seaports to visit from the historical Salem Harbor where the Friendship resides to the picturesque lighthouses in Gloucester Harbor. Check out the list f harbor cruise and whale watching excursions on North of Boston.
- Wenham Oktoberfest – Don’t miss out of the Wenham Tea House Oktoberfest! September 27th from 3-5 pm join us for a fun day of German music, food and delicious beers under the tent as we help support the Wounded Warrior Project. Over 15 different beers will be available! A portion of the proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
