Massachusetts Places

A visit to Massachusetts is an opportunity to walk in the footsteps of history at easily seen iconic buildings, landscapes, memorials and museums.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Massachusetts offers forests covering 3,060,000 acres, kayaking and canoeing on the Essex and Ipswich Rivers, and sailing on the Charles River in Boston. If you just want to enjoy a little fun in the sun, visit Revere Beach, America's first public beach, or swim though history at Walden Pond in Concord, where Henry David Thoreau once lived.
