The original Yankee Candle Company's flagship store in South Deerfield, Massachusetts is an exciting, fun day trip out of Boston (approximately one hour's ride) for everyone. Over 160 varieties of candles are sold, from traditional beeswax to Shortbread Cookie scented candles, unique and traditionally-made New England housewares and a complete selection of Christmas decorations, there is definitely something here for everyone to enjoy. Make your own candles at the Candlemaking Museum, stroll through the Bavarian Christmas village (complete with 25ft tree and toy train zooming through the trees) with year-round snowfall or relax and enjoy a performance by the animatronic Candle Mountain Boys with some delicious baked goods. Prepare to spend hours wandering around this massive 16,000 sq ft store full of candles and other delights. There's also a lovely adjacent restaurant, Chandler's, which serves traditional New England dishes, such as Fish & Chips, Clam Chowder, Chicken Pot Pie and Toll House Cookie Pie.
