The Happy Place

Have you heard of The Happy Place? I had not. One night, I got a text saying”Do you want to go to the happy place?” My first thought was that it was inappropriate spam, but then I realized my sister had sent it.

The Happy Place is a pop-up attraction consisting of a series of”sets” that you move through to play in and take pics. The sets are well lit, so it’s hard to get a bad photo. It’s been dubbed “the most Instagrammable pop-up in America,” by Boston magazine. So far it’s visited cities including LA, Toronto, and Chicago. A number of A-list celebrities have posted on social media about it, making it a must-see for many people.

We went late-morning on a Saturday with my sister, her husband, and their daughter. It was a lot of fun. We spent an hour there and could easily have spent more time. They offered us snack food, but we passed because we were planning to go for lunch afterward. We made some really nice and fun images. There were a few other families there and also a couple of college-age young ladies who dressed and planned for a serious photo shoot. On weekends, it’s $35 for an adult and $25 for a child but they control the number of people entering the venue (or at least they seemed to when we were there). My fear was Dinsey-like lines at each set but we seldom needed to wait and if we did it was less than two minutes. It is well staffed to provide you with assistance in getting the perfect shot and to help you enjoy your experience.

It is in Boston until June 30th and then I’m not sure what’s next. And yes, I had fun in the tub with all of the rubber ducks.

        You could come up to take photos there and then go up to the Parker River refuge in Newburyport. We went there last week. It’s always beautiful.

    Last year, before going to Acadia National Park, I did stop by Parker River, but did not have enough time to do anything more than take a quick tour by car. Will have to go back.

      It’s a nice place. During summer days, it fills with beach goers but if you go other times, there are a lot of serious bird watchers and photographers.

      It didn’t help that my sister didn’t call from her regular number.
      I had to google Kellogg’s NYC. It look like so much fun. Another photo op. 😊

      Actually, there were a bunch of ducks in the tub with me. I was just in top of them. I’ll send you the link to the complete set of images later. You’ll enjoy it.

        Awesome, awesome photos!!! Your niece looks like she’s had a great time – as do you! 😄 Thanks a lot for sharing them with me – I would love posing next to the unicorn! And the shoes are amazing! 😄 And now I’m ready to eat some cookies! 😂 Another thought – I think Jack Reacher would love having this big a coffee cup! 😉

    This place seems so cool. I would love to visit it with my kids… OK, I’ll be honest. I would love to go to the Happy Place with or without them! Lol. I am very intrigue by the SHOES decor. Thanks for sharing your photos Chris.

        That would be awesome. Although, Boston is not too far from Montreal. It would be nice to visit again, but the kids have exams until June 25th.

        Montreal! One of my favorite places in the world. The Happy Place moves on after the end of the month. Hurry down after exams end. 😉

        I’ve been searching on their site about their program but it doesn’t say anywhere which city they are going next. Looks like I’ll have to hurry down to Boston. This could be fun. I love Boston! Hopefully, my hubby will agree to come along on this trip. Fingers crossed.
