Massachusetts Weekend Getaways
When Barry Manilow
wrote "Weekend In New England" we're pretty sure he had Massachusetts in mind. This is a pretty romantic place when you look at the beautiful shores, the rich history and the charming scenery. Barry will forever reminisce about his weekend in new England and you and your sweetheart will too once you've experienced all the loveliness of places like Boston, Cape Cod, and Martha's Vineyard.
If you come in summer, these places are bustling with people soaking up all the summer sun's rays and warm ocean breezes. But come in other seasons and you've find all the beauty but a quieter pace.
Boston is surprisingly kind to visitors with only a weekend to spare. It's easy to see on foot and it packs the full punch of any major cosmopolitan cities; world famous restaurants, rich history and culture, top-rated resorts, museum, galleries, and shopping.
Boston is a metropolitan mecca on Massachusetts Bay that feels like a small town. Weekenders can find cozy oceanside cottages to rent or top-notch spas and resorts to lounge in. The university town of Cambridge feels like the quintessential college town full of earthy promise and youthful charm. Enjoy a downtown stroll
and indulge in a little shopping, or check out Boston Restaurant Week in March or Boston Harborfest in June.
If you've only got a weekend to spend in Massachusetts, don't be discouraged. You can easily spend a Saturday and Sunday strolling hand in hand on Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard. Consider a driving tour of Massachusetts' six historic covered bridges. If you happen to live in Massachusetts,
you have an opportunity to check out the romantic places you never
knew existed, right in your own backyard! Here are a few great MA weekend getaway ideas! To see specific

Secluded Massachusetts weekend travel for two just a short drive away!
If you happen to live in Massachusetts, traveling to a small and secluded
place is easy. Lodging rates in small hidden towns like Greenfield,
Lowell, Great Barrington or Barnstable Town can be much less expensive. Many of the
smaller towns in Massachusetts offer great little B&B's or cabin
making a quick weekend escape easy and inexpensive. There are always
quaint little shops to explore as well as great home cooking at
local restaurants. Above all, small towns can offer real quiet and
seclusion for a perfect romantic weekend getaway.
A Massachusetts Romantic Weekend Getaway right under your nose?
If you live in or near a Massachusetts major metropolitan area like North Adams,
Boston, Springfield or Worcester, there are many great deals and weekend
getaway opportunities at your own back door. Off season times are
great opportunities to stay at world class resorts close to home
for much less than you might expect. Many resorts
and spas offer packages designed to entice locals to come and
explore the pampering they offer. Although you aren't going far
from home, the right resort or hotel can make you feel as if you
are another world away.
Massachusetts Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!
Hop a flight to see The Mohawk Trail or Franklin County Covered Bridges or attend Pittsfield Winter Carnival in January
or Boston Harborfest in June. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Massachusetts events like Highland Games & Celtic Festival in June or Boston Restaurant Week in March.
A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of Massachusetts,
but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in North Adams, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Pittsfield resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in North Adams."
