Yes, this is a cross-post.
We are looking for a Maple Sugaring place to visit this coming weekend (March 22/23) within about 2.5 hours of Boston for a day trip. We have two preschool aged kids, so I'm looking for somewhere that has a fair amount of "activities" and a fun atmosphere for the girls. I sort of need to get the most "bang" for our ride up there. I'd be happy to just leave with some amazing maple products, but with kids, I need there to be free stuff or face painting or carriage rides or balloons, etc.
I've gone on the Maine and New Hampshire maple sugaring maps, but it's hard to tell from there which ones would be the right fit for our family.
