Fun for the kids — or even the kid inside this 33-year-old — you must experience Bristol’s agrarian past at the interactive Coggeshall Farm Museum, a still-active farm that dates back to the 1790s. Crowing roosters will welcome you to Wake Up in the Barnyard ($10), a Saturday morning program that allows you to partake in the morning chores: feeding a horse, donkey and ox; gathering freshly laid eggs; milking cows; and cooking johnnycakes on the farmhouse’s hearth.

Getting up close and personal with a rooster - and history - at Coggeshall Farm in Bristol.
