Be on the trail of the struggle for independence in Massachusetts or discover the beauties of the Atlantic coast of New England here.
The state of Massachusetts is located in the northeastern United States and is part of New England. The name comes from the Indian word for “at the big hill”. Visitors to the so-called The Bay State, which is only about half the size of Switzerland, are particularly interesting because of the varied landscapes and the many historic sites.
Especially the largest city in Massachusetts, Boston, played a decisive role in the independence movement of the later United States. This legacy can still be seen today in the metropolis. A walk along the Freedom Trail with the main attractions of Boston or a short detour to the Harvard University campus is worthwhile.
Outside of Boston, Massachusetts is particularly impressive with its varied landscape. Walk in the hills of Berkshire County or along the Atlantic coast. The Cape Cod Peninsula is worth a visit here, where you will find long sandy beaches and historical sights such as the Race Point Lighthouse.
