Within a half hour of Boston, Life Care Center of Merrimack Valley has close access to everything the city has to offer, as well as a rich history of its own, rooted deeply in the American and Industrial Revolutions. For a day trip, we suggest:
- Lowell National Historical Park honors the effect Lowell, Mass., had on the Industrial Revolution in America with its water-powered textile mills. In various sites throughout the city, visitors can walk around the city, exploring old textile mills and the water mills that powered the textile mills.
- The American Textile History Museum explores the process of making clothing from pre-Industrial Revolution to today. It is affiliated with the Smithsonian Museum and features more than five million pieces and exhibits related to textiles.
- The Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau provides links to attractions, events, hotels and restaurants in and around the city.
- The Billerica Colonial Minute Men is a group dedicated to re-enacting the lives of men from the area during the pre-Revolutionary War era. Events are held frequently throughout the year, including a parade honoring Yankee Doodle, who was born in Billerica.
