A visit to the Yankee Candle Village in South Deerfield, MA is a delight to the senses and offers even more than just the famous candles

Yankee Candle Village in South Deerfield, the original flagship store, features a 90,000-square-foot complex complete with everything from a Wax Works room to a Bavarian Christmas Village. The Wax Works exhibit is one of the most popular exhibits, where visitors can dip their own candles, make their own uniquely-scented jar candle and sculpt a wax cast of their hand.

Wind your way through a maze of showrooms to the cozy Bavarian Christmas Village, a replica of a German Christmas town where it is always evening, the tinsel and light-trimmed roofs are covered with fluffy white snow and the spirit of Christmas is celebrated year-round. Stroll through the Black Forest, where it snows every day, before crossing a moat and reaching the warmth and safety of Nutcracker Castle. Visit with Santa Claus himself as he works in the castle’s toy shop. Snap pictures with Jolly Old Saint Nick and subtly drop a hint for your next Christmas present. Peruse the toy store filled with fun and unique toys, surely something for all ages.

People visit Yankee Candle Village for the candles, but stay for the fun. When you visit, however, save some time to browse the world’s largest candle store. Over 400,000 multi-colored candles in endless rows are available for purchase; discover discontinued and rare fragrances in the Treasures section and be the first to test new fragrances, which hit the shelves of the flagship store before any other. Complete the experience with a stop at Powder Hollow Brewery and Hillside Pizza Café, which offers craft beer, wine, pizza, wraps, salads, soups, baked goods, coffee & beverages.

If you’re planning a trip to Massachusetts, Yankee Candle Village is a perfect destination, ideally located near many of New England’s top tourist spots. Six Flags New England, the Norman Rockwell Museum, Historic Deerfield and Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardens can all be easily reached from Yankee Candle Village.

As you approach Yankee Candle Village in Williamsburg, it feels as if you are about to enter an overly large, old-fashioned general store. Rocking chairs line the front porch, which is framed by garland and Christmas wreaths, even in the middle of July.
