Why you should add Massachusetts to your Indie/RTW trip

[All content and prices updated July 2013]

Indie travelers will have a great experience in one of the most historically significant states in the US. The vibrant capital city-goers from Boston split their time between living the fast life and heading to the laid back, old-world, seaside atmosphere of Cape Cod.

  • A visit to Massachusetts usually begins in Boston, where you can trace a large part of the history of the US through many of its sites and sounds.
  • Boston locals eat, sleep, and breathe sports, so take in a Sox, Patriots, Celtics, or Bruins game to really get to know the people who call Massachusetts home.
  • In Cape Cod you can relax on its sunny beaches with the Atlantic thundering in the background, watch seals frolic and whales dance.
  • Enjoy the arts at the many galleries and museums that dot the Cape from Sandwich to Provincetown.
  • Explore the lighthouses that brought ships of old safely ashore. Stay in an old sea captain's house and let your imagination run wild.
  • Follow the Cape Cod Rail Trail and experience the ecology of the Cape, from salt marshes, scrub pine forests, kettle ponds and more birds than you can imagine. End your days with a Cape lobster - elegant or in the rough, depending on your mood.
