Nichole’s Picks 9/24 + 9/25

So this weekend is a cinch.  Thanks to the abundance of Trails and Sails Events, I didn’t have to do any work at all!  I started to try to pick my three favorite events…but then I had four. And then five…  and so on.

Below you will see many of the Trails and Sails Listing, but before you check those out, also remember that this Saturday is the once per year SMITHSONIAN MUSEUM DAY LIVE!

Thirteen Boston area museums are included…as well as our own Cape Ann Museum! Other great destinations such as Battleship Cove in Fall River and the Ecotarium in Worcester are also included.  Check out all participating Massachusetts museums HERE.  Maybe check out southern NH as well.

“The Museum Day Live! ticket provides free admission for two people.  Museum Day Live! is an annual celebration of boundless curiosity hosted by Smithsonian magazine. Participating museums and cultural institutions across the country provide entry to anyone presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket.”  

Here is the entire listing for the “East Region” Trails and Sails Events. To see other regions as well follow this link
