Introducing Massachusetts

The history is legendary – Plymouth, where the Pilgrims landed; Boston, where the first shots of the American Revolution rang out; and Nantucket, whose whaling ships swarmed the oceans. But there’s a lot more than landmark sights in this old state. Fast forward to the present: Boston and neighboring Cambridge have blossomed into spirited college towns, Provincetown’s a gay-extravaganza whirl, and those whales – a major attraction in their own right – are now followed by affectionate sightseers on whale-watching cruises. By all means start in Boston, the state’s busy hub, where you can mix colonial sights and museum strolls with sizzling nightlife and pub crawls. Then move further afield, to the woodsy Berkshires and the dunes and beaches of Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.
