  • This is a great day trip from Boston. We were in Boston for Thanksgiving weekend, and we did a last minute day trip here on that Saturday. It took about an hour to get here from Allston, Mass. America...  more »

  • Good experience, looking to take a trip again during the winter to snowshoe. Nice gift shop, wide trails and they even have animals.  more »

  • Whether you will like America's Stonehenge and ll find it an interesting visti is really dependent on whether you are a history buff who has been following the theories of possible civilizations and/or colonies that were here in North America. If you are looking for a nice hike and/or a good tourist attraction - then perhaps one of the great state parks would be better for you and your family. If you do plan on visiting - spending some time doing a few hours or more of research will help you to have context for what you are seeing. Also -youtube has some great - and not so great - lectures and reviews of theories of the origins of this site - When you get there - make sure you keep your map so you can better understand what you are seeing - the staff is very helpful if you have questions. I have been visiting this site since the eighties - and as the new research has become available - I find it more interesting - - BUT if you don't have a lot of interest in history and have not done the research - this site may be best passed by
  • I spent my formative years in Salem, NH and NEVER visited America's Stonehenge, which was literally about 10 minutes from the house I grew up. I don't know what I was thinking! I finally visited with my wife on our last visit home and had a great time! Keep your expectations in line. This isn't Disneyland. But the oddity factor is what makes it awesome! I very much enjoyed the visitor's center and the video that was clearly made in the late 80s or early 90s. I LOVED that!! Watch the film! There are alpacas to look at here too. Get a map and follow it to see the different destinations. The more you read, the cooler you'll think it is. Let's face it... it just looks like piles of rocks for the most part... but once you read what they are and where they came from... it's REALLY cool. It gets cooler and cooler the more you go in. We did it in the snow, so we may have missed some things too. There is even a SACRIFICIAL TABLE!!! If that doesn't get your attention, I don't know what will. Check it out! We really enjoyed going in the winter. Check your local library for FREE TICKETS!!!
  • Fun, quirky little site. Feel like much of the research is dated or not that in depth. Recommended as a light physical activity for family members, just don't expect high level engaging details.
  • Super cool place to visit. Simple hike to the location and back. My 4 and 5 year old loved it but didn't understand much of the history obviously. Still fun for all ages. Cute gift shop too. A great local morning or afternoon activity.
  • This place was a complete surprise to me. I was visiting friends in New England, and they took me for a visit. The site itself is fascinating. The walking tour is self-paced, and at the end of it, you can check out the resident alpacas. For a knitter like me, alpacas are always a bonus. The museum is rustic, and contains tons cool artifacts found on site. I'd recommend this to families with kids, and anyone interested in Stonehenge and similar monuments.
