Massachusetts is one of the more illustrious states in New England thanks to its role during the American Revolution. Nowadays, you won’t find soldiers fighting in the state’s deep wildernesses, but what you will find is a trail dedicated to the state’s history. Trek through Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile path that takes you through 16 locations that are important to Massachusetts’s, and the U.S.’ history. For some old-world nostalgia, visit Martha’s Vineyard. The island is just south of Cape Cod and is home to harbor towns and old-fashioned lighthouses. Start your vacation in Boston by camping like a colonial in one of these unique accommodations. They’re fitted with comfortable amenities like king beds and indoor heating, so you sleep comfortably after eventful days out.
