We bought a groupon to go here and didn't know what to expect really. It is a different experience... if you live close by it is worth checking out. To be honest, my favorite part were the Alpacas. They were funny and came right up to you. On a nice day it is a nice walk, a little educational and... More

I had not been to this place since a field trip in elementary school. The self directed tour is very interesting.

America's Stonehenge is a unique experience with many inteesting artifacts. Although the origin is some what speculative it was interesting. On the negative side the trails were difficult to follow and there was more walking than we bargained for. Glad we did it but once is enough

The entire concept of America's Stonehenge is interesting. There can be no doubt that at least part of the property is some sort of large scale astrological calendar, but its origins are unknown. There is a small gift shop with a good variety of related books, music, and gift items. Visit on an important astrological date (like Solstice or Equinox)... More

I read a bunch of bad reviews about is place elsewhere and I guess I never thought about the points they were making, until I read those reviews. So, it's real simple. If you want a bit of history and a bit of exercise, and just want something to do, then go for it. If you are a historian, scientist,... More

We went to this location with low expectations after reading other reviews, but had a coupon and thought, "why not, how bad can it be?". The answer is BAD, worse than you'd think. I thought that even if the structures were not impressive, we would enjoy the outdoors. But the outdoor area is so un-authentic that it is impossible to... More

This is a very interesting place to visit. I've seen documentaries about America's Stonehenge so I was familiar with mystery and lore associated with this unique site. There's a lot of speculation and conjecture as to who build this site, when and why. Paleo-Indians, Druids, Vikings, Phoenicians? Who knows? And then there is the astronomical relationships of the rocks to... More

This was our first visit to America's Stonehenge. It was very interesting to step way back in history while touring this site. The interesting video before we went out on the trails was very informative and set the scene well. If you are interested in history at all, this would be a great place to visit.

At $11, this was not worth the visit. You get handed a little map that's hard to read and follow, you watch a video that was made in the early 80's at best (it literally says you can buy the VHS in the store), then try to make your way around and figure out what you're looking at. It's too... More

This site is an interesting little aside in new england, a site ostensibly used as an ancient civilization's home or village and an astronomical calendar. It is hard not to be skeptical. The site is known to have been used in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the curators argue that the home there in those days was built on... More
