There is always a reason to visit Massachusetts, regardless of what season it is. Warm summers allow for ample swim time in the ocean. Snowy winters coat the state in white, making it very much a winter wonderland. Massachusetts, and New England in general, is known for its colorful fall, where once green trees turn into a mix of reds, oranges, and yellows. Massachusetts is gorgeous year-round, but roads can be treacherous in the extremely cold winter months so exercise extra caution.
With its location on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, much of the cuisine of Massachusetts is seafood-forward. In coastal towns like Provincetown you can eat clam chowder and fried clams. Lobster rolls are also sold all over New England, and Massachusetts is no exception. If you have a sweet tooth you can indulge in a Boston crème pie, yellow cake with cream or custard in the middle and chocolate glaze, or head to Dunkin’ Donuts, which was founded here.
