That’s why we at Empire Hyundai have created a list of winter events near Fall River, MA. There’s truly something for everyone.
According to Eventbrite, there are a number of local concerts this December. For example, you can see the Parsonsfield: Holiday Acoustic Tour at the Narrows Center for the Arts on Saturday, December 16 at 7:00 p.m. You can also see Los Lobos at the Narrows Center on December 30 at 7:00 p.m. These are just two of the many performances in the area this winter.
Next, take a trip in your capable Hyundai SUV to Boston for the GrandTen’s Sip and Shop Holiday Bazaar. This event is for adults, and it’s hosted by GrandTen Distilling. There are a number of artisan and craft makers that will present cocktails, specialty drinks, and food on December 10 and December 17. While you’re wining and dining, you can also shop for wares at a Holiday Bazaar.
Finally, drive to Norton for the Legacy’s Annual Christmas Fair on December 9 at 10:00 a.m. Located just 30 miles from Fall River, this event will have food, a book fair, gift wrapping, and even a visit from Santa. These are just some of the winter events in and around Fall River to consider this winter.
It’s that exciting time of the year when our favorite auto manufacturers begin to reveal the newest versions of their lineup. If you’re dying to know what to expect from the 2018 Hyundai lineup, and when you can expect to see them at Empire Hyundai, read on.
2018 Hyundai Sonata
The new Hyundai Sonata has received an updated exterior and smarter standard and available features than ever before. Systems like Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and wireless charging add to the cabin’s modern feel, and safety tools like standard Blind Spot Detection and Lance Change Assist make every commute a secure one. The 2018 Hyundai Sonata began arriving at dealerships earlier this summer.
2018 Hyundai Kona
The 2018 model year debuts an all-new, entry-level crossover SUV, the 2018 Hyundai Kona. This sporty five-seater will feature an available turbocharged engine, available all-wheel drive, smart driver-assist safety features and three different levels of infotainment. The 2018 Hyundai Kona is expected to be on sale late summer or early fall 2017.
2018 Hyundai Elantra GT
This wagon-inspired hatchback features an athletic appearance to match its athletic performance. Powered by a 1.6-liter inline-four engine and a six-speed manual transmission, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT delivers 201 horsepower for a zippy ride. With plenty of storage, a cute design, smart technology, and many standard features, the new Hyundai Elantra GT promises to be a popular choice in the upcoming model year.
Determining how far you can go on a single tank of gas is just simple math. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco, for example, earns up to an EPA-estimated 36 combined mpg*. That means the Hyundai Elantra Eco is capable of traveling up to 504 miles* on a single 14-gallon tank of gas. That’s quite the range! Here are a few single-tank trips from Fall River recommended by us here at Empire Hyundai.
Located 104 miles from Fall River, Rockport is a town with a lot of charm. Located northeast of Boston, MA, Rockport is a popular tourist spot. The town’s coast setting makes it perfect for kayaking, scuba diving, and simply relaxing out on the beach. That sounds like a perfect summer trip to us.
Sitting 71 miles with toll roads and 91 miles without, Sturbridge is easily accessible on a single tank of gas. Known as one of the most historic towns in Massachusetts, visitors will love the antique shops and Wells State Park.
Cohasset is just 60 miles from Fall River, making it just under an hour’s drive from Fall River. The town’s beachfronts are a popular attraction for visitors. That makes it the perfect day trip for some fun under the sun.

Hyundai is a brand that puts an emphasis on creating quality vehicles at affordable prices. While that may seem too good to be true, keep in mind that Hyundai also backs its engineering with a standard 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The result is a dramatic sales increase in the past few years among the average American driver, but they aren’t the only ones getting behind the wheel of a Hyundai. We here at Empire Hyundai know of a few celebrities who drive Hyundai vehicles.
The pop star behind the hit song “Gangam Style,” PSY usually rides through South Korea in a Hyundai Equus. Quite fitting, since, according to a few YouTube sources, “Gangam Style” is a South Korean district where people tend to live the life of luxury.
Oscar-winning actors tend to recognize quality, but some, like Jeff Bridges, go beyond just buying a vehicle. Bridges has been the spokesperson of Hyundai for 10 years now. Bridges continues to drive home a message of quality and affordability.
While he may not be tearing through urban streets in a Hyundai, Tyrese Gibson has his own history with the brand. The Fast and the Furious star originally learned to drive in a Hyundai, perhaps inspiring his love of all things automotive.
One amazing place to visit is the city of North Adams, where you can find the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, also known as Mass MoCA. It’s all the way across the state, though, so leave early! You can also visit Worcester, an inland town west of Boston that has such sights as Bancroft Tower.
Visit the Smith College greenhouses Northampton and check out the idyllic Provincetown. And how could we forget about Boston? With some of the best beer around, incredible history, and all kinds of things for tourists to do, Boston is a must-see even for native Massachusetts residents.
