Massachusetts Holidays

Where New England began

Massachusetts, one of the original 13 US states, feels like it has been marinated in history.

First discovered by the Mayflower expedition in 1612 - Massachusetts has the most variety of the New England states, from world-class Boston’s history and culture to the fantastic beaches in Cape Cod, the Berkshire Hills’ quaint country communities and the maritime culture and history of North Boston and Salem.

This was where the first shots rang out signalling the beginning of the American Revolution and this was the first state to abolish slavery. We love meandering along The Freedom Trail, a two-and-a-half mile trail winding past 16 of Boston's most historic landmarks. Walk the red brick pathway past graveyards, notable churches, and famous meeting houses, where every step tells a story. 

Twin Massachusetts with Washington DC for monuments and landmarks, or visit New York for shopping sprees and Broadway.
