Discover Massachusetts’ Beauty All Year Long

Spanning along the Northeastern Seaboard of the United States, Massachusetts brings rich American history, natural beauty and plenty of things to do to New England throughout every season. From Boston and Martha’s Vineyard to Cape Cod and the Berkshires, visitors can enjoy the Massachusetts waterways, sandy beaches, mountain ranges, fresh seafood and national landmarks.  If you’re planning an autumn trip to Massachusetts, get ready to witness some of the most breathtaking fall foliage around. With picturesque trees of every shade from yellow to red, fall in Massachusetts signifies the beginning of something magical. With the close of

baseball season and the start of football, expect the bars to be filled with lively Red Sox and Patriot’s fans from morning ‘til night. Fall is a perfect time to tour Cambridge, home to Harvard University. The Ivy League campus is the epitome of academia set amidst manicured lawns and stately architecture. You can also visit MIT and Lesley University that are also in Cambridge. Salem, MA offers Halloween enthusiasts a great place to get spooked, as the Salem Witch Trials still haunt the town in a good way. Take a hayride through the vast apple orchards and pumpkin farms that are sprinkled throughout the state, perfect for children to explore.

As winter approaches, Massachusetts lights up in the holiday spirit. Storefronts twinkle and snow coats the Freedom Trail. You’ll want to pack a heavy coat and some decent gloves when you visit so you can take part in the winter festivities in Massachusetts. Across the Bay State, discover an impressive slate of festivals, events, concerts and more. Whether you’re out in Pittsfield, or closer to the coast in cities like Rockland and Chelmsford, you’ll no doubt have a blast this winter in Massachusetts. Of course, any visit to Massachusetts during the winter should no doubt include some time on the slopes. The state is peppered with excellent ski destinations from Haverhill to Hancock. Many visitors get their winter skiing fix at the Jiminy Peak Ski Area in Hancock, Berkshire East in Charlemont, and Ski Bradford in Haverhill. In Westford, you can also find the Nashoba Valley Ski Area, ideal for a winter visit.

Alas, spring and summer hit Massachusetts, and the beaches, parks, landmarks and waterways become flooded with local and tourists alike. Tulips and wildflowers fill Boston’s Public Garden, and sandals replace boots. Clam shacks open, bikers hit the trails and sunshine lights up the state. Just off the tip off Cape Ann peninsula, Rockport’s coastal locale is ideal for kayaking, fishing, and boating. Step back in time, and visit Sturbridge this summer, located in Worcester County, and visit Old Sturbridge Village and get a glimpse to what life was like in the 19th century. For a beach town vacation, Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard are not to be missed. With gorgeous beaches, coastal cuisine and lighthouses to photograph, these three island towns come alive every summer.
