Visiting Massachusetts | Fall 2014

Fall ushers in the most beautiful weather of the year, and communities across Massachusetts provide countless events and activities all season long, inviting visitors and residents out to bask in temperatures amid changing colors.

Across the state, fall foliage tours become a popular way to experience Massachusetts. Late September through the end of October, Springfield visitors can take a day trip in virtually any direction to marvel at the vibrant kaleidoscope of changing leaves. The Berkshires, a range of hills dotted with lakes, towns, and historic sites are particularly beautiful in the fall – and the area is less than an hour away from Springfield. To the northeast of town, the Quabbin Reservoir in Belchertown offers 39 square miles of walking trails, scenic views, and giant piles of leaves.

Further northeast, visitors to Lowell, Chelmsford, and Concord won’t want to miss an opportunity to cruise down Massachusetts Route 2, one of America’s first scenic highways. The road winds its way over gentle hills and through historic and picturesque towns like North Adams and Shelburne Falls, offering a truly relaxing escape. Late September through early November is the perfect time to take a drive.

Car lovers in the Plymouth area are heading south to Sandwich to get a special thrill. Now through October 11th at Heritage Museums and Gardens, the 2014 Behind the Scenes Auto Tour gives visitors a glimpse at 20 ultra-rare, antique automobiles while curator Jennifer Madden regales groups with little-known facts and exciting stories about the collection.

South of Plymouth in Cape Cod, one of America’s most beloved and longstanding annual events returns to the A.D. Makepeace Company Headquarters at Tihonet Village on October 11th and 12th. The 2014 Cranberry Harvest Celebration is fun for the whole family, featuring bogside demonstrations, cooking demonstrations, pond boat rides, music, food, and more.

People from the neighboring communities of Marlborough and Worcester gather at Worcester City Hall on Friday, December 5th for the 2014 Festival of Lights Celebration. Full of family-friendly, old-fashioned fun, the event sparks holiday spirit with the annual lighting of the Christmas tree and the opening of the public ice skating rink on the Worcester Common Oval.
