Massachusetts may be one of the smaller states in the union, but what it lacks for in size; it makes up for it with its natural beauty and tremendous activities. Do not shy away from Massachusetts during the winter months. This would be a mistake. Skiing, horse drawn sleigh rides, ice skating and heck, even a good old snow ball fight is at your finger tips in the winter. Sure summer is when everyone flocks here and why not? From Martha’s Vineyard to Boston Red Sox baseball, there are wondrous places and activities constantly bringing people into New England.
Being a charter colony in early America, it goes without saying that Massachusetts is rich in historical sites. The buildings, landscaping and museums see to that. The Bay State offers a window into the past. You will see how the Pilgrims survived in this area more than 400 years ago with true Pilgrim period clothing and activities. Then see how the colonists lived leading up to and during their important fight for American independence.
