Traveling in Massachusetts
Massachusetts is one of the smallest states in America but is packed with interesting history and culture, one of America’s greatest cities, and lots of beautiful scenery. The flat and densely populated coast slowly gives way to low mountains as you head west, providing beautiful scenery and places for hiking and camping in the summer and skiing in the winter. Boston is one of the country’s biggest cities, and has some of its most important colonial history. I have visited most parts of Massachusetts, with the exception of Martha’s vineyard.
As a city that was founded by the Puritans and home to many of the America’s founding fathers, Boston is one of the country’s most historic cities. Famous Americans such as Samuel Adams, John Hancock and Paul Revere all called Boston their home. There are about a dozen important colonial landmarks that can be explored on foot by using the city’s Freedom Trail.
With the entire eastern part of Massachusetts being heavily populated and developed, a good escape without leaving the state is a trip to the Berkshires. The Berkshires have several small towns, opportunities for hiking and camping, and the highest point Massachusetts.
