Davis Farmland- Our Mother's Day tradition, 5 years running....

I think I first came across it in my Entertainment book (don't bother looking the Providence one, it is no longer there) when I told Kyle and then 18 month old Booger let's go up for mothers day. And to our surprise, I got in free and was able to use a AAA discount. Our experience was great. So here we are 4 years later sticking to tradition and enjoying the day at the farm.  

If you haven't been yet and you have children under 12, it is a must. First, it is New England's first handicap and child accessible farm. Strollers, wheelchairs, and walkers can manage most of the pathways with ease. There are bountiful picnic tables with a container of baby wipes to do quick hand wiping while eating either your packed or purchased food.  They also have plenty of bathrooms, including family style with changing pads and short sinks for little ones to use. And there is a child-safety checkpoint at the exit. The staff there are wonderfully helpful and kind as well.

Now onto the fun. Besides having a well organized petting zoo with friendly roaming animals, there is a toddler compound with tons of room to explore, dig, and move. For the older kids there is a new Adventure area with peddle go karts, a dino dig,  playground equipment, and more. Summertime Bonus,  bring the bathing suits. The Adventure Play and Spray is New England's largest zero- depth water sprayground.  In the fall you can pick your own apples or go across the street to take a try Davis Megamaze corn maze.  It really is an all day affair.  For all of the things to do, it is quite well priced. What is great too, are all of the special events and discounts.  Mom's get in free mother's day, dad's on Father's Day, even grandparents on Grandparent's Day.  And there are umpteen others, checkout their website for their latest weekend events and discounts. It is well worth the drive.
