MASSACHUSETTS GETAWAYS, VACATIONS AND ACTIVITIES
Massachusetts, known to residents and New Englanders as "the Bay State," is a state with ample opportunity for any type of recreation and enough historical sites to rival any state in the nation. In fact, Massachusetts is the cradle of American history and provides wonderful differences from other states within eight regions. They are:
and Cambridge; North of Boston; Merrimack Valley; Bristol
County; Plymouth County; Cape Cod; Martha's Vineyard; Nantucket
Island: Another World. Enjoy: pristine beaches and solitary
lighthouses; whale captains' mansions; rolling hills and moors;
fine dining and elegant resorts; Central Massachusetts; Greater
Springfield; Franklin County/Mohawk Trail; and The Berkshires
Each offers a great deal of history, beautiful sites to see; ample recreation, such as skiing, snow boarding, ice skating, swimming, sailing, whale watching, boating; lodging and culinary delights; and myriad museums, including the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield and the Boston Aquarium among many, many others.
It's here in Plymouth that the country's birth certificate resides as it sits proudly on Plymouth Rock, on which the pilgrim first set foot after rowing ashore from the Mayflower.

Boston . Massachusetts
Faneuil Hall has served as a marketplace and a meeting hall since 1742. Funding was provided by a wealthy merchant, Peter Faneuil, for the construction and local artisan to create the grasshopper wheathervane that still perches on the building's cupola.
