Things to do in Massachusetts

Guest Author - Charisse Van Horn

Massachusetts is rich in American history and is full of cultural activities and events, providing plenty of entertainment for tourists and residents alike. To start your trip, you can request the free official Massachusetts travel guide “Getaway Guide” by mail. You can also choose to sign up for an e newsletter that will continually alert you to new Massachusetts travel and tourism ideas and activities. The Massachusetts Getaway Guide is an excellent way to review all that Massachusetts has to offer and can help you plan your trip accordingly.

Massachusetts is divided into several regions. These are: Western Massachusetts, Central Massachusetts, North, South, and Greater Boston, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket Island. You’ll find wonderful vacation opportunities in all of these regions.

Western Massachusetts is home to the Berkshires. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the beauty of the Berkshire Mountains and there are plenty of activities to engage in year round. Skiing is a wonderful in the winter, and you’ll find plenty of camping, hiking, boating, canoeing, birding and hunting during the other months as well. The Savoy Mountain State Forest is located in Florida, Massachusetts and lodging is available year round.

One of the most historical sites is located in central Massachusetts. Old Sturbridge Village recreates life in the 1830’s and is an experience that will last a lifetime. The Sturbridge Village museum offers hands on activities that everyone will enjoy. Another popular attraction located in Central Massachusetts is the Worcester Art Museum. The Worcester Art Museum (WAM) contains over 35,000 pieces and displays works from European, Asian, Greek, Roman, and North American art.

If you’d like to spend some time on the beach then you’ll want to visit the region “North of Boston”. With over 30 miles of seashore, you’ll find plenty of seafaring activities to keep you busy. From Gloucester and Salisbury to Rockport North Boston is a sea lover’s haven.

The Greater Boston area is a must see on everyone’s vacation list. History buffs will be occupied for hours while visiting the John F. Kennedy Museum, the Paul Revere House, The Black Heritage Trail as well as the Freedom Trail. Fenway Park and Charles River are two highly popular tourist attractions and worth viewing.

Every trip to Massachusetts must include a trip to Plymouth with a view of Plymouth Rock. If you’re up for an afternoon of whale watching then a trip to New Bedford is in order. On the second Thursday of every month, New Bedford’s streets come to life with artists, theater, and cultural activities as the city promotes their AHA cultural events.
Finally, for exploring the sheer beauty of the New England sun on the most pristine beaches, a visit to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard is in order.
