Things to See and Do in Massachusetts

A taste of New England

Massachusetts seems like such a quiet place – who would know it had so much going on? Our trip through this New England state brought us to a lot of interesting destinations we just had to share with you. You’ll find excitement in antique art, chills at an old asylum, and nature and fun everywhere you turn. Don’t believe us? Read on!

Museum of art

The Worcester Art Museum promises an exciting time for travelers interested in medieval, ancient, and modern art. Exhibits change frequently, with pieces featured from various points throughout history. If you want to experience art created by some of the masters, you need only stop by this art museum. Plan your trip accordingly by following the calendar of exhibits so you’ll know precisely when the pieces you want to see are scheduled to arrive at the museum.

The real-life Arkham Asylum

While the Danvers State Hospital didn’t set out to be the inspiration for Arkham Asylum, that’s how it ended up. In truth, it was first the inspiration for one of the great horror writers of our time, H. P. Lovecraft, who first drew inspiration for his Arkham Sanitarium from Danvers. It wasn’t always a site that drew macabre minds to its location. When it first opened in 1878, it had a progressive stance toward mental illness for its time. By the early 1900s, that had all changed. Since then, it’s become an apartment complex rather than an asylum, but you can still stop by and see the original site that inspired two fictitious mental hospitals.

Luxurious camping in New England

For a truly pampered, restful stay, you need to check out Normandy Farms. It’s been hailed as one of the premier resorts in the world, and it rests halfway between Boston and Cape Cod, so you can strike out from here and see either of those great locations. Dogs are more than welcome here, and Normandy Farms offers amenities such as playgrounds, tennis, dog parks, arts centers, swimming, and much more. If you have relaxation in mind and want to stay where there’s not a care in the world, make it Normandy Farms!

A true summer adventure

If white-water rafting, aerial adventures, mountain biking, and zip-lining don’t get your heart racing, we don’t know what will! If you want a true adventure this summer, then you need to make Berkshire East Mountain Resort your main destination. You can camp here in a tent or your RV, but be aware that there are no hookups, so you will be boondocking while you stay. Honestly, that just adds to the adventure. If you choose to stay somewhere else, you can still take advantage of all the fun to be had here!

A beach that sings

The Singing Beach in Manchester-by-the-Sea is a natural wonder where a singing noise is created when the wind hits the grains of sand just right. You can take advantage of more than the singing while you’re there. The beach is open, and swimmers are welcome to take a dip in the refreshing water while they’re serenaded by the singing beach!

A water-lover’s dream

If you’re looking to spend some time on the water fishing, boating, or swimming, then you’ll love what Pinewood Lodge has to offer. With a forest on one side and a lake on the other, it’s not hard to see why people love this campground. Pets are welcome, and so are RVs. You’ll find a full hookup here, along with a playground, an ice cream shop, and places to walk your furry friends. If you’re craving a bit of the great outdoors without roughing it, make sure to check out this location.

That was a fun ride through Massachusetts, and we can’t wait to return. We love reporting great camping destinations to our readers, so if you’re looking for even more great places to stay, check out our blog and enjoy the ride!

Statement from CEO Gigi Stetler:

On Monday, March 22nd around 5am, RV Sales of Broward experienced a devastating electrical fire that completely destroyed our warehouse, including our offices, our maintenance shop and four RVs. We are extremely fortunate that no one was hurt in the fire.

Thankfully, the majority of our RV stock was untouched, and we are still open for business to continue providing the same great service and care to our RV community. For anyone looking to help, we ask that you join The RV Advisor as a member and spread the word to your family and friends that RV Sales of Broward is still open for business.

We greatly appreciate your support during this trying time, and we know that together we will come back stronger than ever.
