If you’re on a quest for that old-fashioned Christmas feeling, visiting Fairhaven during the holidays is something I’d recommend. The combination of pre turn-of-the-century buildings, quaint shops, and a no-skimping approach to holiday lights can make for a memorable experience. And remember, it’s not about buying things, it’s about the experience. If you approach it from that perspective rather than as an agonizing rush through the mall with Christmas list in hand, then if you do buy something it will be spontaneous and part of the overall experience, rather than the object of it.

Think Joy.

  • Where: Downtown Fairhaven
  • When: Nov. 23-24, 5:00 – 9:00 P.M
  • What: Over 3 dozen businesses will remain open until 9:00 pm to offer small town shopping the way it used to be. Make dinner at one of the fine local eateries, or even just something hot to drink at the Colophon Cafe part of the experience.
