If you’re in the area, Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill is definitely worth a day trip! You can tour a bunch of historic buildings in the village–tons of interesting artifacts, history lessons galore and a fantastic staff. The Village also owns 3,000 acres of the surrounding countryside with 40 miles of trails. If you’re in the market for a more budget-friendly trip (read: free), you could walk around the village, see the animals and gardens and then hit the trails! But the admission price is well worth exploring the buildings and seeing staff presentations if you feel like splurging (just $15 from Apr-Nov and $7 from Nov-Mar).
