Visit Massachusetts - A Northern Treat
It’s simply not possible to say that you’ve made an honest attempt to see America without visiting Massachusetts. It’s most definitely one of the most historically rich places in the entire United States. From Boston to Cape Cod and everywhere you travel in-between; you’ll find a million things to do for the entire family.
You should start your sightseeing in Greater Boston, where you can take a short ride on the T to the Kennedy Library and Museum, take your little ones to the Children’s Museum, or explore the New England Aquarium. And the Museum of Fine Arts is one of the greatest museums worldwide with thousands of exhibits of fine art throughout the ages. Other sites that you won’t want to miss are the Opera House, the Citi Performing Arts Center, the Fort Point Channel area, and especially Boston Harbor and Boston Light, where you can enjoy some great sailing in spring and summer; or head over to Boston Common to the Frog Pond for a fantastic ice-skating experience. If you happen to be in Boston during the holidays, you’ll never forget the beauty of Boston Common at that time of the year. It is the epitome of the holiday spirit and will stick in your mind forever. At any time of year, Boston is one of those absolutely great cities that you want to keep going back to.
If you cross the Charles River, you’ll be in Cambridge and you’ll just love the diversity of the Harvard Square bookstores and the MIT Museum. The ethnic cuisine is legendary in Cambridge and your palate will be sure to be satisfied no matter where you choose to dine. You can also go south to historic Quincy and visit the Adams National Historical Park for a dose of true American history.
And, if you love water sports, the Charles River and Boston Harbor both offer an array of activities from swimming, sailing, canoeing, rowing, kayaking and every kind of good time that you can possibly have on the water. And that even includes whale watching, where you can get up close and personal with a pilot, humpback or blue whale from May to October.
And don’t forget to do some of your sightseeing on Nantucket, which is only 30 short miles off the coast of Massachusetts, with its cobblestone streets, one-of-a-kind antique shops, towering lighthouses and virtually acres of land dedicated to conservation. You won't want to miss the Nantucket Whaling Museum, which features outstanding scrimshaw, a 46-foot long skeleton of a sperm whale, as well as a dramatic view of the gorgeous harbor from the museum’s rooftop observation deck.
Western Massachusetts should certainly not be left out of your sightseeing plans. It’s famous for its natural beauty and eclectic communities. You’ll be touched by Franklin County’s rural charm and enjoy the sophisticated entertainment of the Berkshires. If you’re lucky enough to see Western Massachusetts in the early fall, don’t miss the Mohawk Trail for the most dramatic fall foliage in the United States along the scenic automobile route.  And, for winter sports, you just can’t beat western Massachusetts ski country for world-class skiing and snow-boarding from the Berkshires to Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort.
In addition to all the events and sights to see in Massachusetts, there are literally dozens of state parks and national parks that offer an endless list of activities for the entire family from swimming to skiing, skating, boating, hiking, camping, picnicking cycling and so much more.  If all of that isn't enough to get you to travel to Massachusetts, try the food. The culinary diversity of all areas of Massachusetts will leave you wanting more. From the seafood to the Boston baked beans, fine restaurants abound anywhere you choose to travel in Massachusetts. So, come for the fun family activities and endless historical flavor and stay for the food.
                   You'll be glad you did!

The landmark structure is one of the world’s most distinctive monuments punctuating the Springfield skyline and stirring the spirits of basketball fans everywhere.

A Ride in Massachusetts

Head on over to Cape Cod and leave all of your worries behind while you enjoy spending your leisure time enjoying the beautiful sunny beaches, rolling sand dunes and a wealth of family fun. With better than 550 miles of natural coastline and pristine beaches, you could easily lose yourself in the sheer beauty of Cape Cod. You’ll love biking, walking, horseback riding, kayaking, sailing or fishing while in Cape Cod. Or, take a 45-minute ferry ride over to Martha’s Vineyard to see the quaint shops and experience the culinary delights of the local seafood restaurants.
