I have really enjoyed writing about all the amazing things that Massachusetts has to offer travelers. One of my favourite things is how short of a drive it is to get to Massachusetts from where I love in Ontario, making it a perfect family travel destination.
I enjoyed learning more about the many things Massachusetts has to offer and writing about everything from island hopping to the arts and the great outdoors.
One of the things I love about traveling to Massachusetts is how you can be one with nature without really having to "rough it", if you know what I mean. I personally don't consider sleeping n a tent relaxing. (I'd be up all night complaining about how much I missed my bed and I'd be scared of a bear attack!)
In Massachusetts, you can enjoy both a big city vacation when you visit Boston, and still get away from it all on the same trip. Massachusetts has such beautiful, natural surroundings, offers peace and quiet to people wanting to re-connect with nature, and has great inns and hotels with stunning ocean views.
Here are some places that offer travellers a bit of everything, including peace and quiet for the perfect relaxing vacation:
The Berkshires: If you're looking to get away from it all, check out the Red Lion Inn Meadowlark Suite. Meadowlark is a rustic getaway where guests can enjoy some quiet alone time, and connect with nature. It's located in the fields and woods of the bucolic Berkshires and is absolutely beautiful.
Cape Cod: A great place to stay in Cape Cod is the Lighthouse Inn. It is located on nine oceanfront acres, and has a private sandy beach, heated pool, and tennis courts for vacationers. There is also a children's activity program and a full service restaurant with gorgeous ocean views. Accommodations are provided in classic Cape-style guest houses and one, two, or three bedroom cottages. This is my number one choice!
Greater Boston Area: The Inn on the Horse Farm in Sudbury is an 1880 "Queen-Anne Victorian Farmhouse" that's on nine acres of woods, pond, stream, beautiful willow trees, and rolling pastures. It's near the village green and churches, and looks very much like it did in 1683. How great is that?
Whatever you decide to do and wherever you decide to go in Massachusetts for your next vacation, it's sure to be a memorable, beautiful, happy time.
