Perhaps it’s Massachusetts’ galvanizing roots as a founding U.S. commonwealth. Perhaps it’s because for centuries, the state has served as the nation’s intellectual hub, where the greatest thinkers have been cultivated and continue to come to learn. Or perhaps it’s the beauty of the landscapes, from the beaches along the Atlantic coast to the rolling hills of the Berkshires.

The idyllic New England seaside locale of Cape Cod never disappoints. Commonly referred to as the Cape, it is a favorite leisure vacation destination. Located on the easternmost part of Massachusetts, this region has preserved its maritime character along with its numerous beaches, making it a destination that begs for a second visit.
The main attractions here are the pristine white sand beaches that become flooded with people in the summer months, especially over long weekends. Although the beaches are worth the trip, the Cape is also a prime place to do some whale watching. Humpback whales, fin whales, minke whales and sei whales have all been spotted in the region. In addition, the critically endangered North Atlantic Right Whale has also been spotted enjoying these waters.
Within the Cape, the small town of Provincetown is the home of one of the most frequented art museums, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. The area has long had the reputation of being an art colony, which seamlessly feeds into the museum.
