History, history, and more history, Massachusetts is filled with it. Massachusetts is the center of several chapters of Colonial and Revolutionary War history. Visitors can view the rock where the Mayflower party is said to have landed in Plymouth, and walk the paths where the initial shots of the Revolutionary War were fired in Lexington and Concord.

Then there is Boston, with all the amenities expected in a large city with excellent restaurants, museums, shopping, night life and much more. It has art and science museums, the New England Aquarium, and the intellectual activity of several universities. And don’t forget to attend a performance of the world famous Boston Symphony. (sometimes with fireworks)

Many of the states coastal regions are already well known, such as Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket, where the ocean, gardens, villages, shops and cranberry bogs entice visitors from all over the world.  And while you are by the beach, perhaps you will take a whale watch cruise.

And in the hills of Western Massachusetts you will find Summer and Winter outdoor activities, cultural events, state parks, fairs, artisans, crafters, and many other charming features.

There is something in Massachusetts for just about everybody.

This only skims the surface of things to do and see in Massachusetts.
