A Little Rebellion

Happy Friday! Casey here.

Recently, younger son and I attended Old Sturbridge Village’s annual Redcoats and Rebels event.

This was our second year attending and it was as much fun as last year. Even better, the weather was comfortable and we caught up with friends who were there for the first time.

If you live in the New England area, consider visiting the village. For the month of August, kids admission is free (ages 2-17). Old Sturbridge Village is the largest outdoor history museum in the Northeast.

At the end of August, our town is hosting a pirate event. Can’t wait to attend that next!

How have you been spending your summer vacation? Been anywhere fun?

  1. Casey, wonderful post. Those remakes of history are great, especially for our kids. When we drove to Atlanta, we traveled through the Blue Ridge Mountains and found a piece of history to walk through. For me, the highlight of the summer was Atlanta, the RWA conference and a visit to our daughter who lives nearby.

      1. Those Blue Ridge Mountains are gorgeous to traverse, lots of beautiful views. By the way, we are going to Nashville too, in a couple, meeting my editor for the first time in West Virginia. And then on to Nashville, all with family, for R&R, lots of music, and wonderful river rides.

  2. Darn, I missed it again! I love Sturbridge Village. Their gardens are gorgeous and walking through the old buildings is like taking a step back in time. Potters, blacksmiths, and weavers are so amazing to watch. i haven’t even been to the beach this summer. I went in the spring, but must go soon. I’m jonesing in a big way to go camping and be by the sea! I have a trip to Nashville and New Orleans coming up next month so I’m really looking forward to some R&R.

    1. Next year, let’s do a Scribes field trip (with family). It really a great event and educational too. All the reenactors take the time to speak about their camps and life in the 1700s.
