Westford deals for a New England vacation
New England is full of delightful vacation spots, but taking a getaway to this region can be fairly expensive. If you're looking to save money during your trip, make it a stay in Westford, Mass., a quaint town about 40 minutes outside of Boston by car. And you can save money on transportation if you rent through Thrifty Car Rental, which offers Westford deals on an array of Westford rental cars. But you don't have to go to the city to find plenty of fun things to do - there are charming eateries and bars as well as the Nashoba Valley Ski Area and a delightful live butterfly atrium. If you're looking for free activities, try these:
Visit Volo Farm
Visitors with Westford rental cars can take a pleasant ride along Interstate 495 to get to Volo Farm, a lush expanse of 24 acres. The owners have created a safe and friendly environment for horses where guests can come and watch these majestic creatures as they frolic around the grounds. Let an experienced trainer pass on a little equine knowledge. This is mainly a training facility, and you'll have to pay to take part in classes, but you can still come and explore the site and - with permission - the stables. Depending on when you come, you may be able to catch a horse show.
Explore the Westford Museum
To learn about the rich history of this New England locale, drive your Westford car rental over to the Westford Museum. It contains an extensive collection of artifacts that highlight Westford's past, such as heirlooms from founding families, photographs and yearbooks from the local school. Each year, the institution has a new theme. In 2014, the motif is "Forge Village: Its People & Places; Farms, Forges, Fiber & Families," focusing on the people and events of the historic forge Village district. If you're looking for a piece of memorabilia to remember your vacation by, stop at the museum store and browse the unique items.
