One of the original thirteen States, Massachusetts is full of schoolbook worthy American sights.

Massachusetts is scenic and rich in history. There's plenty to see and do from the lively capital city of Boston to the beautiful coastal towns of Cape Cod. Plus, Western Massachusetts has beautiful waterfalls!

Massachusetts is very diverse. Most people who travel to MA most likely visit Boston which is a great cultural and historical city.
