The diversity of Massachusetts
Massachusetts provides a gateway into New England, with most visitors choosing to fly into Boston International Airport. The modern face of Boston belies its rich heritage. Perfect for a city break, it’s home to an exceptional array of fine hotels, restaurants, shops, nightlife and attractions, and is easy to get around. The downtown area is home to the key historic sites, all linked by the 2.5 mile Freedom Trail; together the museums, meeting houses, churches, burial grounds and even a ship tell the story of America’s Revolution and Civil War. There’s also a thriving harbour, the chic and wealthy Beacon Hill area and, of course, Harvard University.
Just a short drive from the bustling city of Boston, Cape Cod is hard to resist. It offers sandy beaches, spectacular coastal sightseeing and the village of Hyannis from where you can catch a ferry to the bewitching islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Scenic New Hampshire
New Hampshire is synonymous for its scenic beauty – from Mount Washington in the northern White Mountains to the ocean beaches near Hampton in the south. The forests and lakes of this New England state offer numerous opportunities for memorable summer vacations in the great outdoors. Welcoming and comfortable, this is an area of small towns, white-steeple churches, covered bridges and the majestic White Mountains.
