    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Perhaps one of the most historic states in the nation, Massachusetts boasts a wide variety of sights and sounds that make up its reputation. From Boston to Cambridge, home of Harvard University, to the historic town of Plymouth where the Pilgrims first landed on North American soil when they fled England. Then there are the infamous Salem witch trials which occurred in Salem, to places like Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Massachusetts Bay. The state is jam-packed full of things to do for all levels of travelers, at all times of the year. From historical value to the natural beauty of the coastlines and interior, Massachusetts is probably one of the best travel destinations in the entire U.S.

    The history of Massachusetts dates back hundreds of years to the founding of the Massachusetts Bay Colony back in 1620. Since then, Massachusetts has been a state of great importance, both in terms of the history that shaped the nation with events such as the Boston Massacre which set off the American Revolutionary War, and for academic excellence with the first American university ever founded, Harvard. Visitors can hike the Freedom Trail in Boston and see more than twenty historical sites of the state, or they can visit MIT at Cambridge.

    The Massachusetts coastline is renowned worldwide for offering some of the best whale-watching on the planet, but there are also several famous bike trails that take you along the coast, such as the Claire Saltonstall bikeway, which goes from Boston to Cape Cod, or the Minuteman Bikeway which goes from Cambridge to Bedford. As a New England state, the food is decidedly sea-oriented, but southern Massachusetts is also known for its cranberry crops, which at one point in time where the world's largest. From the rolling hills in the western portions of the state, to the beautiful coastline on the eastern edge, and the three defining bays which gives Massachusetts its nickname “The Bay State”, there is plenty to see and do in the state, year-round.
