Massachusetts Holidays

With 1500 miles of wide sandy beaches beckoning along the eastern seaboard, green mountains inland, rich culture, amazing history and some of America’s oldest architecture, Massachusetts really adds to the near-endless touring opportunities in the United States. 

Bounded by the states of Vermont and New Hampshire to the north, New York to the west, Connecticut and Rhode Island to the south, and the boundless Atlantic Ocean to the east, Massachusetts enjoys a pivotal location in the centre of New England.

Massachusetts 

Boston

Explore this most British of American cities, journeying through the historic epicentre of the American Revolution, known as the ‘Cradle of Liberty’and ‘Birthplace of Freedom’. ‘Beantown’ is a big city, but you can cover the centre on foot in just a couple of hours. Experience the history of the Freedom Trail, the modern attractions of the Institute of Contemporary Art, and everything in between. Hop on the T for a quick ride to the Kennedy Library and Museum, or stay close to the water for a visit to the New England Aquarium. If you’re feeling the need for a coffee or ice cream, a short walk to the North End will put you in the midst of world-class dolci on Hanover Street. 

The Museum of Science is where you’ll catch fascinating exhibits, and a Duck Tour aboard one of the characterful amphibious vehicle takes you through the city and into the Charles River. Just across the river, Cambridge presents the opportunity to enjoy the ethnic cuisine and plentiful bookstores of Harvard Square, and for the scientifically-minded, the MIT Museum provides food for thought. 

Cape Cod

Cape Cod is a place for outdoors, beaches, whale watching, and family fun. The Cape has so much to offer, you will be spoilt for choice! It is perfect for Romantic getaways for every taste. The town of Falmouth presents travelers with eight unique villages, its essence defined by the sea with 70 miles of winding coastline and nine public beaches. A true haven for outdoor enthusiasts and leisure travelers alike, Falmouth’s landscape boasts the 12-mile long Shining Sea Bikeway. The tour also includes stops in charming Chatham located at Cape Cod’s elbow, and the gay resort community of Provincetown, America’s oldest art colony and the birthplace of American playwriting.

Martha's Vineyard

Whether one visits urbane ‘down island’ or pastoral ‘up island’, Martha’s Vineyard—New England’s largest island—offers ample enchantment for all. An island that captivates visitors year-round, Martha’s Vineyard offers all varieties of beaches, downtown shopping and art galleries, and charming fish shacks enticing visitors with fresh local seafood. 

Plymouth

Plymouth bills itself as "America's Hometown." The colonists’ struggle to build a new community and their relationship to the indigenous Wampanoag are brought to life at Plimoth Plantation, a re-creation of the 1627 Pilgrim community. 

West Brookfield & Deerfield (Central Massachusetts)

Central Massachusetts is a rural landscape dotted with orchards and pristine village greens, with more farmland than any other section of the state. Home of the Salem Cross Inn, which is situated on 600 acres of rolling meadows and woodlands, West Brookfield is one of the oldest towns in the USA, dating back as far as 1660 when it was part of the Quaboag Plantation. Deerfield, located on the famous Mohawk Trail, is also steeped in history and like West Brookfield, it was at the epicenter of several deadly battles between the Native Americans and settlers during the mid-17th Century. Historic Deerfield comprises an exquisite collection of 17th Century architecture.
