Massachusetts is the cradle of modern American civilization. From its founding in 1788 to its position today as a science mecca, Massachusetts delights visitors wanting to explore our nation's history, and offers great spots to dine and enjoy the outdoors. With a coast spanning nearly 200 miles, encompassing grassy heaths and rugged slopes, to inland lakes, streams, meadows, and mountains, Massachusetts boasts myriad places to escape from the every day. So, enjoy your time in this lush and vibrant state - home of John F. Kennedy, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Dr. Seuss - at one of our picturesque Massachusetts vacation rentals. Boston is the largest city in the state, but still retains much of its historic flavor. Tour the Freedom Trail, a historic 2.5-mile journey commemorating the brave men who fought in the American Revolution. Relive John F. Kennedy's heyday at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library, or head to Beacon Hill and admire the many well-preserved buildings and monuments to our country's founding. Or enjoy a baseball game at historic Fenway Park, one of the last remaining vintage ballparks in the nation. A stay in one of our Boston vacation rentals gives you a comfortable place to call home while you explore the city - which is important, as you'll need more than a week to see all the sites! Looking to avoid the big city? Explore picturesque Cape Cod, with its myriad beach towns, from gay-friendly Provincetown to tony Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Find inspiration at Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord, home to Henry David Thoreau for nearly two years. Head to historic Quincy, birthplace of two presidents, and stroll through the Adams National Historic Park. The Berkshires lure thousands of tourists each year, thanks to its quaint small towns as well as its gently rolling hills, skiing meccas, and art scene. North Adams plays host to Mass MoCA every summer, and the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge delights lovers of Americana. History and the outdoors collide in verdant Massachusetts. It's New England at its finest, so definitely plan a stay at one of our Massachusetts vacation rentals!
