10 Things to do in Massachusetts on vacation; We live in the area and there are so many great things to do in Massachusetts. There is so much history in Boston and the surrounding areas. You can sky and swim within miles of the city of Boston. Maybe not on the same day, but they are that close to each other!
No visit to the city would be complete without some of these things!
1. Duck boat tour; travel down Boston's narrow and winding streets while being entertained by a tour conductor. You will have fun and learn a lot about Boston while you are on the tour.
2. Freedom Trail - 2.5 mile route with 16 historically authentic sites. Learn the History of the American Revolution.
3. Faneuil Hall Marketplace: 1742 was the year that Boston's wealthiest merchant built this incredible marketplace, it's said it was a gift to the city. So many Historic peoples were here in the Market place.
4. A whale watching boat ride: There are several places to get a boat to go Whale watching. Portsmouth is my favorite place. They guarantee you will see whales and the ride on the boat is awesome. There is lots to do around town after you go.
5. Take the ferry over to Nantucket and spend the day. There is a ferry from Hyannis provided by Steamship Authority.
6. Red Sox, Patriots or Bruins game depending on the season. Walk down Yawkey Way and see Fenway Park. The Street is named after Tom Yawkey who owned The Red Sox from 1933-1976.
7. See a Play or other event at The Orpheum Theatre: One of the oldest theaters in The United States. It used to be known as Boston Music Hall. It was home to Boston Symphony Orchestra.
