Check out the first annual Tulip Fest at Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury, Massachusetts. Cider Hill Farm has been maintained by three generations are farmers who are dedicated to providing some of the best produce in the region. This family friendly location lets you pick your own peaches, stroll through orchards, and enjoy hot cider, among a verity of other events.
The Tulip Fest is the first of its kind, and it will be from April 24 to May 9 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Located at 45 Fern Ave. in Amesbury, the farm is offering pre-purchase tickets for this even, though you can also stay tuned for general ticket sales. What is the event? Cider Hill is scheduled to have over 50,000 tulips bloom at the end of April, and you can come and pick your own.
Tulips are a seasonal flower that boast brightly colored petals and come in more than 3,000 registered varieties. Believe it or not, tulips actually come from the Middle East and Turkey, though they were eventually transplanted to Europe — especially the Netherlands — in the sixteenth century. From there, they made their way to the U.S.
The Tulip Fest is a perfect event for those who want to get outdoors and enjoy the warm weather of spring. It’s ideal for families, yet it can also make a romantic date. Head to the Cider Hill website for more information on this fun shindig.
If you’re single this Valentine’s Day, you can still partake in the holiday’s festivities. Keep reading for some ideas on how to enjoy Valentine’s Day with your best friends.
Secret Cupid: Even if you don’t have a significant other, you can still get showered with candy and flowers this Valentine’s Day if you organize a Secret Cupid exchange with your friends. Much like Secret Santa exchanges, participants in Secret Cupid will covertly deliver gifts to the person they selected in the days leading up to Feb. 14. After the exchange is over, try to guess your Secret Cupid.
Staycation: Why be jealous of couples on romantic Valentine’s Day getaways when you can have a staycation with your best pals? Stream your favorite movies, mix up some delicious drinks, and whip together a DIY face mask while you pretend you’re lounging on a tropical beach instead of in frigid Amesbury. For the full effect of relaxation, take a social media hiatus.
Volunteer: One of the best way to bond with your friends this Valentine’s Day is to volunteer as a group. A local Amesbury organization, Our Neighbor’s Table, is always looking for volunteers to help prepare meals and staff the food pantry. Even without a Valentine, volunteering can help make your heart feel a little fuller.
Amesbury Chevy wishes you a Happy Valentine’s Day. Remember to give us a call for all of your vehicular needs this season.
The cooler weather of fall makes it the perfect time to get outdoors and explore your community. If you’re looking for seasonal activities in Amesbury, consider visiting Cider Hill Farm, the Brewery Silvaticus, or Lake Gardner. These are just some of the many things you can do to stay busy this autumn.
According to Trip Advisor, one of the top things to do in the area during the fall is to visit Cider Hill Farm. Started by the Cook family over three generations ago, this 145-acre farm hosts events, but you can also stop by to try their sparkling cider or their organic crops. Cider Hill Farm is dedicated to maintaining environmental sustainability, which also makes it a great place to learn about eco-friendly initiatives. Events include Friday Farm Tastings and Cider Under the Stars, as well as Pioneer Day with Laura Ingalls Wilder on Nov. 9.
Want to try some rustic ale or another hearty brew? Stop by the Brewery Silvaticus in the historic mill building in downtown Amesbury. Located right off the Powwow River, this brewery has a small tap room and an outdoor beer garden. You can also find local food trucks if you visit on Thursdays and Saturdays.
Finally, stop by Lake Gardener before it gets too cold. You can hike, paddleboard, or kayak on the lake. Though, if you prefer more land-based adventures, you can also go bird-watching or walk your dog on the trails.
Call us at Amesbury Chevrolet if you need to schedule your vehicle’s fall service appointment. We’re here to make sure your seasonal travels are as safe as they are pleasant.
Staying entertained on the road is hard enough for adults, but what do you do if you have children in the backseat. There are a variety of top car games for kids, from classics like I Spy to more original ones you might not have heard of. In addition to stopping every two hours and keeping your kids fed and hydrated, eliminating boredom is a great way to make any road trip better.
According to Mini Time, the classic game I Spy is always a good idea because it can be sustained for long periods of time. The directions are simple: someone looks for something in the environment, says the classic words (“I spy something . . .”), and gives a clue.
Next, try the license plate game. If you’re driving on the interstate, give kids a pad of paper to record the state from which the vehicles around them come from. The first person to collect all 50 states wins, and you can even give bonuses for Canadian provinces. This is a great way to learn geography while you’re on the go.
The game “I’m going on a picnic” is also a great. This memory game requires your kids to remember a list of items — a trick that’s harder than it seems. The first player starts by saying “I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing . . .” followed by something that begins with the letter A (e.g., apples). The second player repeats what the first person said, but adds something that begins with the letter B. This goes on until you reach the end of the alphabet. The only caveat is that it must be something you would bring on a picnic — food, supplies, etc.

What we wear, how we speak, and the things we do can tell people a lot about us. But did you know the color of your car could also reveal your inner truths? Find out what the experts say your car color might mean:
Blue: If you drive a light blue car, you are calm and honest. If the car is dark blue, you are authoritative and confident.
Black: Drivers of black cars are elegant and powerful…
White: …whereas drivers of white colors are pure and pristine. You’d have to be pretty clean and fastidious to drive a car that shows trace amounts of dirt, right?
Orange: If you drive an orange car, you are likely individual and artistic. Orange is a bold color, after all.
Yellow: Similarly, yellow car drivers are funny and joyful; they too have loud personalities.
Silver: If you drive a silver car, you are futuristic. Chances are, you always have the latest gadgets and love technology.
Red: Have a red car? That may mean you are sensual or like danger.
Green: Like blue, green can have a range. Light green usually means you are easy-to-please and understated. Dark green means you are traditional and trustworthy.
