20. Yankee Candlemaking Museum
Family of four:
Discover an unbelievable mix of shopping, entertainment, and dining. And every visit is an exciting adventure because there's always something new. Yankee Candle, in South Deerfield, is home to the largest candle store, rustic mountain lodge, gourmet treats, wax works, and even a land of fantasy. But it is also host to the Candlemaking Museum, where visitors can watch free demonstrations of 19th-century candlemaking, and try some candlemaking themselves.
