Discover the best that Massachusetts has to offer with this multi-centre holiday in Boston and Cape Cod. The region of New England is steeped with history and culture and is a spot of sublime natural beauty too.
It’s easy to drive between destinations in the USA. Cruise the roads and admire the fantastic landscapes featuring craggy cliffs and rugged sandy beaches. Away from the beach sit lush green landscapes, a contrast from the wild waves on the shore.
With two vastly different locations, on this trip, you can experience the best of both worlds. Boston is known as the ‘Cradle of Liberty and Birthplace of Freedom’. The largest city in the state, Boston has a relaxed and cool vibe, with plenty of historical sites and interesting museums to visit.
Cape Cod, on the other hand, is a region packed full of charming fishing villages, stately homes and windswept beaches. If you enjoy seafood, Cape Cod is the place to sample some of the best. With plenty of seafood shacks and restaurants, you’ll be treated to freshly cooked lobster, delicate crab and other seafood delicacies from the local shores.
Go for a hike and soak up the natural beauty or pack a picnic and enjoy lunch on one of the many sandy beaches the area is home to.

Start your Journey
Home to plenty of historical sites and museums, Boston is one of the United States’ oldest cities. Relaxed and walkable, the city is ideal for history buffs to visit. On foot, you can discover the United States’ colonial past along the Freedom Trail and learn of the significant historical events that occurred in the area, many from the American Revolution.
Boston isn’t all about its past though. The city is also home to the world renowned university town of Cambridge, where the attractive grounds of Harvard lie. Shoppers will rejoice when they discover Newbury Street, which can be found in the centre of the city. The area offers some of the best shopping in the state.
A visit to Boston wouldn’t be complete without sampling some of New England’s famous clam chowder. You’ll find it served up in most restaurants and eateries in the city. Bostonians are passionately proud of their city and once you walk the streets, discover the history, and visit the atmospheric restaurants and bars, you’ll soon see why.
A versatile holiday spot, Cape Cod is perfect for romantic getaways, health breaks, golf trips and adventure holidays for all the family. The area is a renowned summer escape spot for city dwellers in New England, but is also a hotspot for visitors from all over the United States and around the world.
If you’re seeking a classic American seaside holiday, Cape Cod is the place to be. Discover charming coastal fishing villages, looming cliffs and over forty miles of craggy coastline featuring remote and beautiful beaches.
While Cape Cod is an ideal destination for a relaxing trip away, there’s also plenty for those who like to keep busy. Embark on a whale watching trip to watch these glorious sea creatures move through the water or take a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket for an island getaway. If you love seafood, you must indulge in the succulent Cape Cod lobsters or the local saltwater taffy.
