Autumn is a beautiful season and Massachusetts is full of amazing attractions to keep you outdoors!
To help you plan some amazing fall outings, here are a few of our favorite activities during this time of year:

King Richard’s Faire is a large Renaissance fair that takes place in the town of Carver every year.
Here you can see acrobats, trapeze artists and jugglers, minstrels, fire eaters, knight jousting and forest fairies. Even the food is inspired by the Renaissance.
The fair is open on weekends and holidays and runs until the 24th of October.
