Guide to Massachusetts

Geography

Covering just 10,555 miles, Massachusetts is the 7th smallest state in the United States. The state is mostly flat land, low hills, and several lakes and rivers. The central part of the state is dominated by the Connecticut River Valley. Its capital, Boston, is also its most populous city.

Climate in Massachusetts

Characterized by a humid continental climate, Massachusetts sees hot and humid summers and cold and snowy winters. There is also plenty of rainfall year-round. The state also distinctly experiences all four seasons.

Culture

Massachusetts got its name from the Algonquian word ‘Muswachusat’ which means ‘The Great Hills’ and refers to the Blue Hills of Norfolk.

Things To Do in Massachusetts

Explore colonial history on the Freedom Trail

Start your trip in Boston, one of the most significant and influential hubs of political thought and social change in the country. If colonial history interests you, walk along the Freedom Trail – a 2.5-mile long brick road that takes you past 16 significant historical sites that have shaped the nation’s history in some way or another.

Catch a game at Fenway Park

The oldest stadium in Major League Baseball, Fenway Park holds a special place in the hearts of baseball fans because it is not only the home turf of the legendary Bostonian team, the Red Sox, but also a National Register of Historic Places-registered gem due to its quirky charm that newer stadiums can’t quite match.

Bask on beautiful beaches at Cape Cod

A popular summertime vacation spot, Cape Cod is known for its quaint villages, delicious seafood, azure beaches, lighthouses, and whale watching spots. The best beaches are Head of Meadow Beach, Highland Beach, and Race Point Beach. However, if you’ve had enough of the sun and sand, swing by the John F. Kennedy Museum, bike the Cape Cod Rail Trail, or visit Martha’s Vineyard.

Eating out in Massachusetts

Start your morning with Thornton’s cafe in Boston to find the eggs, pancakes, and French toast of the best kind. For lunch, head towards Mamma Maria for lip-smacking Italian cuisine made with matronly love served inside a 19th-century row house. If you like your meals meaty, osso buco and lobster ravioli are must-try dishes. And finally, while you’re on the Freedom Trail, pop inside the oldest bar in America – the Bell in Hand Tavern – for a pint. You’ll probably run into tipsy intellectuals from nearby Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) there.

Massachusetts Transport

Airport

Logan International Airport (BOS) is the largest airport serving the Boston area and surrounding counties.

Getting around Massachusetts

Within Boston, you can take the MBTA, which includes a subway (usually called the "T") network, buses, commuter rails, water taxis, and ferries. However, to get to other parts of the state, hiring a taxi or renting a car are better options. Budget, Enterprise, and Thrifty are some of the popular car rental agencies serving the state of Massachusetts.
