One of the 13 original states, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is full of historical sites and natural beauty. From its mountains to its glorious coasts, the state is home to some of America’s most spectacular landscapes. The Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts offer scenic views from towns perched on the verdant slopes. Cape Cod’s three hundred miles of coastline has some of the best beaches in the New England region. Access to these spectacular beaches is gained through small historic towns, some of them preserved as they were a hundred years ago. The Outer Cape is less populated and more wild, while Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, to the south, lay beautifully unspoiled. Massachusetts’ vacation towns, whether elite or approachable, have a laid-back vibe that makes them a pleasure to visit. To experience the quintessential New England summer, book a beachfront cabin or cabin in the hills and head to Massachusetts.
