The history and bricklaid beauty of Boston is easy to enjoy. Follow the Freedom Trail past Old North Church, Paul Revere Park, Fanieul Hall, the Commons, Old Ironsides and more landmarks of America's birth. Across the Charles River is Cambridge and Harvard. Venture to Marblehead and Salem to the south, or Lexington and Concord to the north. Back in town, have clam chowder at the warf or great Italian food in North End.
A summer resort island just off the coast of Massachusetts, Martha's Vineyard floats in the memories of generations of vacation society. Visit the beach front avenue of Oak Bluffs lined with gingerbread-trimmed cottages, and the Flying Horses antique carousel.
Newport became important as a resort for wealthy industrialists who built their “summer cottages”, modeled after European palaces, here and elevated Newport to position of “Queen of Summer Resorts.” A tour of the mansions is a must. Newport is also famous as a yachting capital and site of international tennis championships. Colonial Newport boasts a collection of 18th- and 19th-century and pre-Revolutionary buildings. Colonial Downtown is best explored on foot, and much of the town was burned down during British occupation, but enough buildings survived to rival Boston in number of original 18th-century homes. George Washington’s assurances to Newport’s Jewish community of religious liberty encouraged them to build Touro Synagogue in 1763, making it the oldest in the nation. St. Mary’s Church is the oldest Catholic parish in Rhode Island. The Grand Newport Casino and International Tennis Hall of Fame held the first national tennis championship in 1881 and is now Tennis Hall of Fame with a museum on tennis fashions and trophies.

Sandwich was settled by Europeans in 1637 in Barnstable County, Massachusetts. It is the oldest town on Cape Cod. Sandwich was predominantly a Puritan settlement however a growing number of settlers converted to Quakerism. Beliefs clashed and many Quakers left Sandwich. In 1825 Deming Jarves founded the Boston & Sandwich Glass Factory and recruited workers for his factory. Skilled laborers were imported from Ireland whereupon a majority of them were Catholics. The first Catholic Church was established in Sandwich as well. After the Civil War, the glass factory closed down due to a huge decline. This historic town is rich with beautiful scenery and landmarks. Visitors can take a river cruise down the Cape Cod Canal or bike down the Cape Cod Canal Bike Path. The Shawme-Crowell State Forest is a perfect hiking and camping location for the avid adventurer. Visitors can also immerse in old New England culture.
