"The Athens of America"

Massachusetts, USA

"The Bay State" is a magical mix of colonial history, beautiful mountains, and idyllic beaches. Amidst all the natural beauty of the state, there lay the stories of the American Revolution preserved in the numerous museums peppered over the entire land. The state is home to some world-renowned historic houses and centuries-old buildings narrating chronicles of American independence. The living museum of Old Sturbridge Village and the Mayflower II in Plymouth Pier documents the history of the first pilgrims and 19th-century lifestyle.

The Freedom Trail in Boston paves the way along with many historic buildings from the times of revolution. The cultural history of the place is complemented by the acclaimed educational institutions of Harvard and MIT in Boston and Cambridge. Showcasing the aesthetic heritage of the place, Harvard square museums and the Museum of Fine arts are abode to some of the best creations of the world. An experience of the Boston Symphony Orchestra hints at the rich cultural ecosystem the state cradles.

The wonders of Massachusetts do not end here. The mountains of Berkshire are a paradise for an adventure buff. The magnificent forest trails and rivers provide for amazing hiking and zipping experience. From manicured treks to wild escapades, the hills of Berkshire are naturally designed to please all mountain lovers. Many of the mountain-based resorts provide a wide array of challenging outdoor activities including kayaking, rock climbing, river-rafting, and zipping adventures.

The Cape Cod Bay is a stretch of surreal white sand beaches perfect for spotting nesting shorebirds and sunbathing. The Cape Cod National Seashore encloses beautiful lighthouses, dunes, lakes, and lets you boardwalk the Atlantic White Cedar Swamps. The tales of small-town history and the taste of sweet island life are only complete with visits to the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
