Spring MA

It’s been a long winter, but soon the weather will warm up and we’ll be able to shed our coats and enjoy the spring season. With April Vacation Week  just around the corner, don’t miss a moment of spring’s sunshine by exploring all the activities Massachusetts has to offer!

Things to do in Massachusetts this spring:

  1. With more than 100 state parks across the Commonwealth, there are activity options for large groups, alone time, and everything in between. The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) provides a complete list of the different recreational activities available at each location. Consider purchasing a MassParks Pass  to save on parking fees. If you’re unable to make a purchase, you can borrow a MassParks Pass from a participating library.
  2. For a taste of history, take a trip to one of Massachusetts’s historic sites for self-guided tours.  Educational, interpretation and visitor services are also available for a more formal and enriching educational experience.
  3. There are countless trails and bike paths to choose from for fun-filled physical activity. Massachusetts’s accessible hiking trails are paved or made from stonedust to ensure everyone can explore the scenic views of Massachusetts.
  4. Massachusetts amusement parks are another great option for an exciting day to remember with the family.
  5. Massachusetts offers a number of kid-friendly options for education, exploration and fun. Consider visiting a zoo, museum, aquarium or nature center.
  6. Try one (or all) of these Massachusetts activities under $50 for families and couples looking to have fun on a budget.
  7. Get to know your community and visit a local farm or winery to connect with your environment, the land, and Massachusetts history.
  8. Find more exciting things to do this spring by keeping an eye on the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) blog, The Great Outdoors, for weekly updates on events celebrating the beauty of Massachusetts.
