Sure, it's not Disneyland but New Englanders need a sunny theme park that isn't located in the sultry southern half of the U.S. So in comes Palace Playland, open seasonally for people who don't want to travel far to ride roller coasters. Many visitors come from Canada as well. The park has a long history since 1902 and has been operating on the same site for over 100 years. It is, according to the park, "New England's only beachfront amusement park" with one of the region's largest pinball and video arcade. For more information on hours and prices visit the website.
