  • Great fireworks! Bring bug spray and a sweater. We visited on July 4 2022 for an evening of music and fireworks. We got pretty much what we expected and were not disappointed. We parked in a field, found a place to put a blanket/chairs, and enjoyed the band with others for the show to begin. The concessions were simple things like fried dough so we packed some of our own water and snacks.
  • We had such a good time here today. The weather was perfect for walking the grounds, the staff were all friendly. We paid the extra $5 for the tour of the Shaker Museum and the Fruitlands Farmhouse, and it was totally worth it. Our guide for the tour, Amy, had so much knowledge to share. She was great!!
