Massachusetts and New England Vacations: a local’s guide

Massachusetts, my home state, is extraordinary. Making up about .26% of the land mass of the United States, Massachusetts offers miles of beaches to enjoy, mountains to hike and ski, rural towns (and cities!) to explore, and many, many historical areas.

But one of the best things about Massachusetts is how central it is to all the New England states. Flying into Boston you can reach in a day’s drive – the rocky shore of Maine, the ski towns in Vermont, the mountains of New Hampshire, the Connecticut countryside, or the 400 miles of Rhode Island shoreline. You could begin your day on the cliff walk in Newport, RI, and end it with lobster rolls in Kennebunkport, ME.
