Summer Weekends of Exploration & Entertainment

When our children were young we packed them up and spent the summer at my father-in-law’s house in Springfield, Massachusetts.  There were times I had to commute from our home in New York as I worked summer jobs (summer school, curriculum writing) but we dedicated each weekend to what we called E & E.  One day was for exploration and the other for entertainment.  The Triple AAA guidebooks are great for this purpose as well as Chambers of Commerce and Visitor Bureaus.

Exploration: Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe houses near Hartford, CT,  Springfield Armory, Chesterwood (Daniel Chester French), Norman Rockwell Museum,  Arrowhead (Herman Melville’s house), Gillette Castle, New England Air Museum...

Entertainment: Movies, amusement parks, lake, parks, town festivals (arts & crafts, Basketball Hall of Fame (they loved shooting basketballs at different hoops), Baseball Hall of Fame, Volleyball Hall of Fame, Football Hall of Fame…
