Massachusetts was named for the Massachusett Indians, meaning "place of the great hill." The state's nickname is the Bay State. Massachusetts supplies one-half of all the cranberries and scallops for the U.S.

 

Four U.S. presidents came from here: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy, and George Bush. Other natives include Horace Mann, educator; Daniel Webster, orator; Benjamin Franklin, statesman and investor; and Daniel Chester French, sculptor.

 

Massachusetts Heritage State Parks are a national model of urban environmental design, historic preservation, and economic revitalization. Historic parks are located at Fall River, Holyoke, Lowell, North Adams, Gardner, Lawrence, Lynn, and Springfield.

 

Travel the Mohawk Trail, Massachusetts 2, a 63-mile road that follows a legendary Indian trail through 50,000 acres of state forests, parks, and reservations. It's especially popular with fall foliage viewers. The northern east-west route goes from Gardner through Greenfield, then to Williamstown in the Northern Berkshires.

 

Notch Road takes you to the summit of 3,491-foot Mount Greylock, the state's highest mountain.

 

The 200-mile Metacomet-Monadnock Trail provides a continuous route through the Connecticut River valley to its terminus at Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. It passes through Robinson and Holyoke Range state parks plus Wendell State Forest. For details, contact M-M Trail, Berkshire Chapter-AM, P.O. Box 9369, North Amherst, Massachusetts 01059, or call the Appalachian Mountain Club at 1-800-262-4455.

 

Visit Salem to get a feel of a 1600s Puritan settlement and explore the Salem Heritage Trail, which is dedicated to the memory of the Salem witch trials. Martha's Vineyard features the Flying Horses Carousel, the oldest working carousel in the country. In Shelburne Falls, you can cross the 400-foot Bridge of Flowers. Visit Paper House off Massachusetts 127 at Pigeon Cove. Cycle or hike the 20-mile Cape Cod Rail Trail, going from Dennis to Orleans. Crosscountry skiers ski the path during the winter.
