Luxury holidays in Massachusetts
Since the pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts has been a pillar of patriotism. Stroll the freedom trail in Boston, visit the shutter-clad splendour of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard or spot spectacular fall foliage in the Berkshires.
Destinations in Massachusetts
Known for wooded hills, arty little hamlets and colonial charm, New England's Berkshires offer a promise of peaceful escape as well as some superb ski slopes.
A world apart from its noisy neighbour, New York, Boston is a cornerstone of American history with an altogether arty atmosphere. But that doesn’t mean that this big city doesn’t have bright lights of its own.
For many, summer is official the moment they cross the Sagamore Bridge to the Cape Cod peninsula, or set sail on a Nantucket Island ferry. Close enough for a weekend jaunt from Boston, yet both feel worlds away from real-life responsibilities.
Seven miles off the southern coast of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard is real-estate, summer-holiday and time-traveling heaven. Edgartown is the best base, with its captain’s houses (from the whaling days), quaint boutiques and incredible food scene.
Cast 48 kilometers south of Cape Cod, Nantucket is a sandy-shored atoll with pristine beaches, sophisticated shopping and fine dining. This storied whaling capital once lured fortune-seeking fishermen and now entices wealthy summer-sun seekers.
