April showers bring May flowers.

Though everyone enjoys May’s sunshine, before the dry warm weather you need to endure the drizzly and wet month of April. When the rain starts to come down it’s easy to get comfortable in a pair of pajamas and retreat into your house.

Don’t let the rain destroy your afternoon plans. There are plenty of indoor activities in New England that will keep you dry throughout those rainy spring days.
