A trip to Massachusetts promises history, diverse cultural activities, and picture postcard scenery. The commonwealth is probably best known for its role in American history, with Plymouth as the second permanent English settlement in North America and the many notable figures like Paul Revere who called the state their home. Guests can experience Massachusettsâ€™ rich history by taking historic tours throughout the state. Bostonâ€™s Freedom Trail meanders through 16 historic sites in the city including Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, and the Paul Revere House. Take a trip to Sturbridge to literally step back in time at Old Sturbridge Village. A living museum, Sturbridge Village recreates life in rural New England during the Romantic Period. A visit to Salem, famous for the Salem Witch Trials, may be a fitting place for Halloween and fall activities.
Massachusetts has one foot in the past, and one foot firmly planted in the present. The state is home to Boston and Cambridge, both modern, yet charming hubs of activity and culture. Home to several universities, the cities provide a variety of activities for students, residents, and visitors. Guests can appreciate art at the Museum of Fine Arts or deepen their knowledge of Camelot at the John F. Kennedy Library. Kids will love a trip to the New England Aquarium, one of the most popular aquariums in the country. Want to get closer to the action? Try a group whale watch tour from Boston Harbor.
For more ocean fun, you host your next wedding or weekend get together on gorgeous Cape Cod and neighboring islands such as Nantucket and Marthaâ€™s Vineyard, both a ferry ride from Hyannis. The Cape offers laid back beaches and first-class sailing, fishing, and relaxing. A hot spot in the summers, the islands become even more beautiful in the fall when deep orange, red, and yellow foliage pops against the blue coastline.
