This is our family’s local activity guide for Plymouth and surrounding areas. We are always seeking affordable and fun activities for our two toddlers and the whole family, and Plymouth is just the place! The guide features kid-friendly activities, events, places to visit and things to do that my family actually frequent and enjoy. Most activities are free, and if applicable, all supplies are included. Check out our local activity calendar below!

Plymouth Sheriff’s Farm: This is a hidden gem located near downtown but far away enough from the busyness of Main and Water St. We visit the farm all seasons and all year long. The farm has plenty of animals for kids to check out and goats to feed, and flowers and shrubs to admire. The farm also holds free events like spring and fall festivals, wildlife demonstrations, touch-a-truck, and more. They also sell pumpkins and gourds in the fall, and Christmas Trees and wreaths in the winter at very reasonable prices. Please note that there are much less animals residing at the farm in the winter time.
