Massachusetts is the most populous state in New England and is a vibrant state full of history. If you're looking for things to do in Massachusetts, you can see where the first pilgrim settlers arrived at Plymouth Rock. Visit the famous spots where the country fought and won its independence from the British. Then take a trip to to the heart of Boston, and make a little history of your own in this 21st-century city.
The Freedom Trail is a collection of museums, meeting houses, churches, burial grounds, historic markers, parks, and even a ship, which tell the story of the fight for American Independence.
It runs for 2.5 miles from Boston Common to Bunker Hill Monument and has 16 historical spots. These include the Old South Meeting House, where the Sons of Liberty met to organize the Boston Tea Party, and the USS Constitution which is the oldest warship afloat.
If you're considering taking a self-guided tour, you'll want to give yourself at least a full day to explore everything. Otherwise, you can purchase guided tour tickets at Boston Common or the Faneuil Hall Visitor Center.
