Massachusetts Adventure

I love Masaschusettes!  We've visited Massachusetts more than any other state.  There is sooo much to see and do and learn, we haven't even scratched the tip of the iceburg!  We are looking forward to many more trips up north (except ,of course, that the roads and toll booths aren't exactly RV friendly).

One of the vey first places we visited was Plymouth Rock. So, I have to tell you that we were a little dissappointed in the rock...because that's all it is, is a little rock.  We were expecting a cliff, or mountain side, but his was a litle rock...
We read the history how in years past they used to drag the rocl through the streets to commerate the occassion and afer yers and yars of this tradition they decided this was not a good idea since the rock was wearing way.
Nonetheless, being there was incredible.  The quaint town is adorable and history is all around you!.  They kids were very impressed with the Mayflower replica!
My favorite part of Massachusetts was Cape Cod.  The beaches were beautiful and no one was there!!!  We went in May, so the water was FREEZING, but that didn't deter my kids from having a good time.  We also stopped to see the Chatam Lighthouse. 

One of the things my daughter really wanted to see was the Boston Common.  After reading, "The Trumpet of the Swan" and "Make Way for Ducklings", she just had to see the swan boats. 
The Common was beautiful, and we loved seeing the swans.  The day proved extremely affordable, with only $2 for the boat ride, $5 for parking, and a free picnic lunch with a violin duet playing in the park!
