When I woke up today I was super excited because I heard that Plymouth is such a cool place. After we got dressed and ate breakfast we got in the car and literally 15 minutes later we were already at some museum! When we walked in I saw the first exhibit which was a collection of old furniture and historical paintings. After we walked a little further, I saw books that were used by the pilgrims in the 1600's, how awesome! We walked around for some more and then we got into the car and drove to The Plymouth Plantation. We first visited this replica pilgrim village. There were a bunch of people dressed up as if they were from the colonial times, which I thought was pretty cool. All of the houses and furniture inside of them looked like they could have easily been used by someone today. We got pretty hungry after walking around for a few hours and luckily there was this place called the " Patuxet Cafe" right on the grounds. After we ate we set out sights on visiting the Mayflower II which was like 10 minutes away, It's great how everything is Plymouth is SO close! Anyway....when we got to the pier I saw this huge ship and had no idea what to expect! When we walked on the first thing I saw was this guy dressed up like a pilgrim. He had this sick English accent and told us about how he struggled through the first few months after heir arrival
September 5th, 2013
At 9:00 we woke up in our hotel room at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. We all got dressed quickly, eager to get on the road and to our next destination. Boy was I excited! We went downstairs as quick as possible and practically scarfed down our breakfast. Then we started to pack the car because we were changing hotels. After we packed the car all nice and neat, our journey began again. Then I saw a sign that said “Now Entering Salem Massachusetts.” At around 10:45, we had arrived at our destination, the Salem Witch Museum. Here we learned a lot about the Salem Witch Trials. I learned a lot of information about why they were killed and much more. I learned that in 1692, the people were accused of witchcraft because some girls started acting strange, and investigators came to the conclusion that the Devil was in their town and taking over. A total of 19 were hanged, a man was pressed to death, and two dogs were hanged all for this reason. It was a very good learning experience for me and my family. Not only was it a good learning experience, but it was fun too! The attractions that we visited after the museum including the Salem witch dungeon, the Salem old town hall to see a performance that portrayed an important trial of one of the victims, the Salem Witch Trial Memorial to commemorate the victims, the Salem Witch House where you could tour the house of a judge during the time, Rebecca Nurse’s house, an accused victim of the witch trials, and the Danvers Witch trial memorial which marked where the accusations first broke out, all were realistic portrayals of what went on during 1692. It was awesome! Between all of the attractions we had lunch at a cute little Italian Restaurant, and I had the best pizza ever! I can’t wait to learn more and continue on our road trip and learn more about colonial New England!
Day 2
Day 3
We arrived in New Hampshire at 11:00 A.M. It was a very scenic drive from Massachusetts and I couldn’t wait to see what cool things we planned for in New Hampshire. We checked in at the Colonial Inn and Farm lodge and we had some troubles with the receptionist. The food at the bed and breakfast was so good, and I felt as if was living during the Colonial times. The restaurants were not too bad either. I enjoyed trying different foods. We later went to the Gilman Garrison house where we got a tour of the place, and we saw many different kinds of sawmills and discovered facts about different generations of a family that have added on to the history of the house. Next we went to the Strawbery Banke Museum. It was so interesting because it was located outdoors. The waterfront gardens were beautiful and I learned how Captain Walter Neal built a settlement in this area because of the surplus of berries that grew on it, which is why we decided to go to the Blueberry Bay Farm. At the Strawbery Banke Museum, we looked at many different houses that talked about different aspects of Colonial New England. Each house has its own story and lifestyle pertaining to the social life of New England. The exhibits we saw were about architecture, constructions, buildings, food, and much more. Many buildings have been restored, too. I’d have to say that the highlight of my day was going to the Blueberry Bay Farm. I was able to have fun with my family and enjoy the wonderful outdoors. Going blueberry picking was so much fun. Since we came during the fall season, many pumpkins were available to pick. It was a perfect fall day and I got to spend it with my family picking a bunch of berries and having a good time. Towards the end of the day when we came back to our colonial inn, I had so much to talk about with my family. We shared our knowledge on what we learned about colonial New England and how life has changed so much throughout the centuries. And we roasted some pumpkin seeds and ate berries. It was truly a perfect day to learn and enjoy, I can’t wait to see the Fort and No. 4 tomorrow!

Day 4
We got out of bed at 9:00 a.m. and dressed quickly so we could get an early start. Then we ate Breakfast at the Hotel so we would not have to wait too long to get on the road. Something quick, just cereal and a banana. Then by 10:00 we were off and heading to the Fort at Number Four, a colonial living history museum, where we would learn about the French and Indian war. I was pretty excited because people say that the French and Indian war helped make America what it is today, and that its one of the most important Wars in our history. The Fort at Number Four also teaches people an array of information about the colonial time period and the first European settlers that came to the New World.
We finally arrived at the Fort at 11:00 a.m. and I was very excited to explore the museum, especially for the reenactment at 3:00. As we looked around the Fort, all the people were dressed up from the colonial time period. The actors were fantastic and made us feel like we were really back in Colonial times! There we met historian Jon Butler who, while we walked the grounds of the fort, offered us an expanse of information about the colonial time period. Also, he gave us great insight into the religious aspect of Colonial America, and the impact that it had. Whatever questions we had for him, he answered with delight and in great detail. It was wonderful to have such a qualified guide around the living history museum. The Fort was like a big square with all different old fashioned buildings around us. It was very interesting and within each building held many facts about the time period. It was as if we were in a history class without being lectured. A few of the buildings included the Killam-Hastings Lean-to, the S. Farnsworth Lean-to, and Lt. And Mrs. Willard House.
Then at 3:00 the reenactment called To Arms, ‘Ye Men of New Hampshire!
Stark's Muster and Garrison’ started and we all watched in fascination as General Stark called the men of New Hampshire to fight for freedom. It was quite an exciting day, and at last it was time to go. We worked up quite an appetite so our family stopped at a restaurant called 11 Water Street in historical Exeter. The Roasted Red pepper and Goat Cheese Ravioli was to die for! It was a perfect end to a great day and amazing vacation.
