Summer Solstice Is Almost Here, So Let’s Go to NH’s Stonehenge
Summer Solstice is almost upon us. The longest day of the year is June 21 and has been celebrated by many cultures for thousands of years.
If you can’t make it to Stonehenge in England, why not try New England’s Stonehenge? They even have an app for that on both Google Play and the Apple App Store.
Located on Haverhill Road in Salem, New Hampshire, you can marvel in the splendor of what is said to be the oldest man-made structure in the United States, according to stonehengeusa.com. Rocks and forest will surround you.
Historians believe it held significance to the solar and lunar calendar just like the Stonehenge across the pond, the website states.
According to stonehengeusa.com, America’s Stonehenge is open to visitors all year, but they hold special events such as a drum circle and Solstice Rituals at special times.
They even offer guided tours.
I gotta see this and explore New England’s rich history and the beauty of nature at this special time of the year.
