The Old Bay State
There’s a lot more to Massachusetts than Boston. In fact, Massachusetts offers an appealing variety that will cater to every personality. Known for its colonial history and picturesque harbors, there’s so much to do in the New England state. Go back in time at Plymouth, where you can learn about the pilgrims that first stepped onto the New World. If you’re looking for more to do, exploring cranberry farms and whale watching are popular activities. Massachusetts is also seafood central. Get your fill of lobster, fried clams, scallops, and shrimp.
When in doubt, eat as much seafood as possible.
"Boston is wicked smaaht."
Not to worry, we still love Boston! Take a tour of Fenway Park, America’s oldest ballpark or catch a Red Sox game. While it’s no secret that Boston is passionate about sports, it’s also a city filled with revolutionary history and a love for innovative art and ideas. The Institute of Contemporary Arts showcases imaginative exhibits and the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Ballet are standout cultural stars. Don’t miss the Faneuil Hall Marketplace which is a mecca for entertainment, shopping, and dining.
Don’t be surprised if you never want to leave Cape Cod. With endless miles of white sandy beaches, walking and biking trails, and lighthouses, it’s easy to see why this was the summer home of the Kennedy family. If you’re looking for activities, be sure to visit the John F. Kennedy Memorial and Museum, the Woods Hole Science Aquarium, or the Cape Cod Museum of Art. Or do none of that, and just relax on the beach. That’s good too.
