Massachusetts – It's all Here!

This week on the Travel Show – Massachusetts – a diverse state that boasts "It's All Here!" ...and just an hour and a half by direct flight from Montreal. Year round it's ideal for weekend getaways or longer vacations.

With representatives from the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism we will take a look at Boston - a vibrant waterfront city with fascinating cultural neighbourhoods and world-class museums and architecture. Plus who can't resist the lure of Fenway Park – home of the Red Sox.

Travel to Cape Cod with its fine beaches with sand dunes, bike trails and visit the coastal cities of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard just a short ferry ride away. The Annual Provincetown Jazz Festival is one more reason to visit Massachusetts and Tanglewood in The Berkshires is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra with the Boston Pops!

We will visit the rich in history town of Salem and the Greater Merrimack Valley that is steeped in Revolutionary War history – plus literary connections. Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne all slept here.
