GARDENS

Massachusetts Gardens

Massachusetts Gardens – This is the most populous state in the New England region of the United States. It borders on the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. The capital is Boston, which is also the most populous city in New England.

New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill: Tower Hill features 17 distinct gardens, preserved woodlands, and miles of walking trails. The trails are well maintained and easy to walk. The indoor exhibits are gorgeous and many of the sculptural installations are a fun addition when you are outside.  The orchid exhibit has some awesome flowers and plants. This exhibit is indoors, the staff are welcoming and there is a dining area with specialty, healthy foods to order. This is a wonderfully peaceful and clean place. Admission to this is about $17. This garden is a real nature-lover’s paradise featuring many gardens, an orchard, outdoor event space, a library and more. You will find this garden in the town of Boylston.

Berkshire Botanical Garden: This Garden is a 15-acre botanical collection that contains over 3,000 species and varieties, with an emphasis on plants that thrive in the Berkshires. This is one of the top outdoor attractions in the Berkshires and is a great place to walk around and take in trees, plants, and flowers. Often, they have exhibits going on as well so you can find new things to see. If you need a place to tire the kids out there’s plenty of open space for them to run around.  They have a wonderful topiary with crocodiles, peacocks, lamas, and other animals. Several pathways are lined with flowers and there is a small indoor gallery as well. There is an annual harvest festival each September that has tag sales, musicians, local artisans, and games. You will find family fun here in Stockbridge.

The Botanic Garden of Smith College: It consists of a fine selection of woody trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, and an excellent collection of tropical and subtropical plants in The Lyman Conservatory. All are open to the public. The outdoor gardens are great to walk around in the sunny weather, and it’s awesome having the Lyman plant house warm and green year-round, even in the middle of winter. You will particularly love the bulb show, benches for photos, succulent section, and resident frog. This garden is found in Northampton.

Garden in the Woods: This Garden is a woodland botanical garden and is the headquarters of Native Plant Trust. They are open to visitors between mid-April and mid-October.  In this unique botanic garden, visitors often describe as magical; you’ll find a naturalistic plant collection that showcases New England native plants with complementary specimens from across the country on 45 acres sculpted by retreating glaciers into steep-sided valleys, and a kettle pond. Here you’ll find inspiration for your own garden and a new appreciation for the varied plant life of this region. This is a nice way to spend an hour or two in the outdoors. You do need to get timed tickets online in advance. Once you get there, you’ll find four loops you can walk around, and there’s an app with information about what you are seeing. If you see a plant you like, buy it here. Garden in the Woods lies just west of Boston, in Framingham.

TravelKatz is hoping that you will give us a call when you are ready to visit Massachusetts and the unique botanical gardens. Call us at 352-277-7300.

STATE PARKS

Massachusetts State Parks:

Massachusetts State Parks – Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England region of the United States. Boston is the capital and a great place learn about the early years of the founding of our county. Massachusetts has 24 State Parks, 38 State Forests, and a State Wildlife Management Area.  Visit these area parks and have some wonderful times…

Pilgrim Memorial State Park: Pilgrim Memorial State Park is one of the most heavily visited state parks in Massachusetts. Nearly one million people a year come from all over the world to visit the town where in 1620 Europeans first made a home in New England and to see Plymouth Rock. This simple boulder has become a world-famous symbol. It symbolizes the courage of the men and women who founded the first New England colony as well as the contact of the European colonists and the Wampanoag People who lived in the area for thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans. A landscaped waterfront park provides scenic views of Plymouth Harbor. The Mayflower II, a replica of the ship that brought the first Pilgrims to Massachusetts, is normally anchored at the park. The park staff offer daily walking tours from April through November at 11 am, 2 pm, and 4 pm as well as rock talks throughout the day.  Discover this park in Plymouth.

Halibut Point State Park: This park is small, with limited parking for $5 per day, but well worth planning a visit to hike the beautiful granite ledges by the ocean. Arrive early or in the off season to get a great parking spot. There is a granite quarry with a small building, lots of birds, seals and other wildlife, too. This park is a unique site – walking trails are easy, the quarry is a great site which includes trails overlooking the ocean with stunning long-distance views, and trails down to the water, be careful along the rocks! Travel to Rockport for this park.

Robinson State Park: This day-use park consists of 811 acres of frontage on the Westfield River, offering a variety of outdoor recreation including bicycling paths, walking trails, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing and cross-country skiing. There is also a paved road through the park, which would be a great way to get a wheelchair bound person out into nature. The wildlife you get to see includes owls, hawks, eagles, beavers, and even a bobcat. This great park in found near Agawam.

Nickerson State Park:  A gorgeous state park with miles of bike trails that link into the rail trail. Numerous well-maintained campsites some right on the kettle ponds. A great day can be enjoyed as you either swim or kayak the calm waters of the park. You can spend full days here enjoying people watching and swim the clear water. Dogs are also fine although do everyone a favor and use a leash. Many people load kayaks with coolers and chairs and paddle over to private beach areas. The staff at the park are top notch near Brewster.

Maudslay State Park: What some do not realize is the beauty found in nature. Walking the trails in this park is a great way to find it, especially if you like to explore. Seeing a sunset with the Merrimack River and the trees as a backdrop is beautiful. Seeing the floral gardens is beautiful and it’s nature at its best.  You may get to see the fawns with their mothers eating near the entrance to the forest. Make sure you have a good camera for the great sites you will see here near the town of Newburyport.

Myles Standish State Forest: You will love the drive through this forest.  Seasonal changes cause people to come here often for the peaceful aura. There is camping available with several locations in which to set up. There is an equestrian area, ponds in which to swim and roads on which to bicycle, and you can rent a kayak, too.  The rustic environment of the park and its expanse make for a peaceful nature experience. It is near Plymouth downtown, so you will be able to find a nice restaurant for a farm to table lunch experience.

Combine with the creativity and originality of Henry Davis Sleeper, the designer of the house and one of America’s first professional interior decorators. Mix in his collections of glass, pottery, and antiques, a secret stairway, mirrors hidden behind doors, ancient carvings, and a circular library in a tower. That’s Beauport, aka the Sleeper-McCann House, where each room has a different theme, including the Octagon Room (everything from the walls to the doorknobs is in eights), the glorious China Trade Room (hand painted Chinese wallpaper from the 1780s), and the light-filled Golden Step room where the large windows can be lowered into the walls to let in the sea air.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

Boston was given its name in 1630 by Massachusetts Bay Colony’s first governor, John Winthrop, who named it after his hometown, Boston in Lincolnshire. The name was popular with Bostonians from the start, since many of them were also from the Lincolnshire region of England.

 Fenway Park:  If you’re an avid baseball fan, even if you’re not, this tour is a must do. You get a great inside perspective of the country’s oldest stadium with tons of information. The tour takes you behind the scenes and the history about the ball park. Standing on top of the Green Monster and looking out over the field is great!  On the tour, you get to sit atop the Green Monsta, see the visiting locker rooms, sit in the historic oak and iron seats, visit their museum of memorabilia, and sit in the press boxes. Great tour at a very unique and historic MLB park.

 Freedom Trail:   The Freedom Trail is a great way to see the fantastic city of Boston on foot. It visits most of the historic sites in Boston and is the perfect way to build up an appetite for a feast of lobster and clam chowder!  The Freedom Trail is done at your own speed and see what you want. Plan on several hours though. See Paul Revere’s house, his grave. See Mother goose grave and Benjamin Franklin’s parents graves next to Paul Revere’s church.  You can go to the Old North Church, through Haymarket, all around the North End.  This is the whole reason to come to Boston. This is where it all started. If you don’t do this you are missing this country’s history.

 Site of the Boston Massacre:  In March 1770. As part of the revolution, the story of sordid killing of five male civilians and injured six others who were killed by British Army soldiers. Patriots Paul Revere and Samuel Adams took this chance to stir the public to gain support for a revolution. This review is not a story about history but a brief background of what happened and where it took place. The place where it happened is in front of the building where the declaration of independence was first read. There is a large circular landmark in front of the building to signify its importance in history. This building is the place where the declaration of independence was originally read. Part of the Freedom Trail.

 Old City Hall:  The Old City Hall is a national landmark located on School Street. The present building was constructed between 1862 and 1865 in French Second Empire architectural style, one of the first such examples in America. This is nice to see as are some of the monuments in the courtyard in front of the building.  This is the sight of America’s first public school, the Boston Latin School between 1704 and 1748. You can see a nice mosaic plaque along the School Street footpath in front of the Old City Hall. One of the school’s first students, Benjamin Franklin is recognized with a monument here as well.  There is fellow statue to Boston’s second Mayor Josiah Quincy that is worth seeing as is the bronze donkey seen here. Created by Florentine sculptor Antonio Frilli. Part of the Freedom Trail.

 Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum: A totally loved the museum and peripherals. Very interactive and exciting. Guides did an amazing job of immersing you in the history of the 3 sons of Liberty.  Lunch after is Offered and the Seating area is bright and cheery and again, the guides, do an amazing by answering questions and teach children about Boston’s history. This is a Fun historical tour, with a great job by the personnel. Excellent story-telling re: the Boston Tea Party and the events leading to the Revolutionary War. Museum part is very well done.  A must see if you are interested in the American revolution.

 John F. Kennedy Presidential Museum & Library:  The JFK Library is a fantastic museum! With its unique exterior look and location on the water, you have amazing views before even getting to the meat of the museum. A great video introduces you to JFK’s ascension to the presidency and the museum presents a picture of the Kennedy’s from early life to the impact JFK had even after his death. Part of the museum is modeled after the White House and visitors learn information about Jackie Kennedy, RFK, and other elements of the family and their lasting impact.  From the five-story view of the ocean to JFKs small PT boat from WWII you will appreciate the making of a great American who became president.

 King’s Chapel:  The building dates to the 1700s, but is still an active religious community today. The church is lovely with private pews, an elevated pulpit and the oldest organ in an American Church. There is a self-guided tour available, with lots of explanatory signage along the way. Climbing the stairs up to the bell tower to see the largest Paul Revere bell ever made was only one of the many highlights to this tour!  Climbing the stairs up to the bell tower to see the largest Paul Revere bell ever made was only one of the many highlights to this tour!
