Visiting Massachusetts | Spring 2015

At last, communities across Massachusetts begin to emerge from the snow, and from Springfield to Chelmsford to Plymouth and North Dartmouth, there are plenty of ways for the whole family to celebrate the relent of the long winter.

Before all the snow melts, however, get in some of the last skiing of the season at one of Old Colony State's many ski areas. Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, northwest of Pittsfield near Hancock, boasts eight ski lifts and 45 different trails of machine-groomed powder. 

Ski Bradford, east across the state in Haverhill, also expects snow to be on the ground into April. Haverhill visitors with young ones in tow won't want to miss March Madness Weekend 2015, when Ski Bradford opens up with barbecue, scavenger hunts, kids' games, the Puddle Jump, and the 12th Annual Dude Gage Downhill Race.

Springfield, in the heart of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, offers much for visitors to see and do all year long. With the NBA season rounding its climactic final stretch and basketball excitement at an all-time high, it's the perfect time to visit the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Six Flags New England, just south of West Springfield via Route 159, opens for the season in April. And kids and nostalgic adults will get a kick out of the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden at the Quadragle.

The Springfield Symphony Orchestra is arguably the cultural focal point of the community of Springfield, and the end of their 2014-2015 season is quickly approaching. Be there to send them off on April 25th, when the season finale, the Rite of Spring, sees the orchestra performing the timeless music of Stravinsky, along with Wager and Rachmaninoff.

To the southeast, Seekonk straddles the Rhode Island border and is part of the Providence metro area, meaning visitors can stay just outside of congestion of the city while still enjoying convenient access to a wealth of ways to have fun. On April 25th, "America's Largest International Beer Festival" takes over the RI Convention Center. Seekonk visitors are just a 10-minute cab ride away from being able to sample their choice of over 250 craft brews at the 2015 Great International Beer Festival.

Before you know it, it'll be warm enough to take the boat out onto the waters of Green Harbor, Plymouth Harbor, and Cape Cod Bay via the Green Harbor Marina, just north of Plymouth. The marina boasts over 180 slips, capable of accommodating vessels up to 60 feet long, and fishing season is already open in the Bay State. Bring your rods and tackle and cast out for the chance to reel in flounder, bluefin tuna, haddock, or cod.
