Things To Do

For all you out-of-stater’s, here is a list of things to do in the area (think CT/MA/RI, because honestly, Southern New England is small enough you could make a weekend out of it!)

If you stay close to Union, there is lots of food and entertainment in Sturbridge, MA, though if you don’t mind driving a little farther, either Worcester, MA (heading north) has lots to offer, as does Manchester, CT (heading south).

Visit Boston for the day! Boston is only 68 miles from Union, and there is TONS to do in the city. Park at Riverside station (located at 333 Grove Street, off Exit 22 on I-95 /Route 128, in Auburndale, a village of Newton, Massachusetts) and take the T in so you’ll have worry-free
