Want to create an itinerary from this post?
There’s nothing better than an adventure packed road trip with friends and family. Combined with the perfect playlist, and an itinerary full of activities, a Massachusetts-inspired road trip can be a special experience — one where driving is only part of the fun.
You’ll find no shortage of scenic drives around here — from leaf peeping along the Mohawk Trail to breathtaking, coastal views on Cape Cod — but all driving aside, this summer, we encourage you to embark on a road trip that’s chockfull of experiences. You know, things like splashing in the ocean, savoring a mouth-watering bite to eat, or just simply enjoying a leisurely afternoon exploring one of Massachusetts’ many gems.
Today, on MassFinds, we’d like to introduce you to “The Heart of New England,” a road trip that spans Central Massachusetts, featuring local art, food, and the outdoors.
Starting with a visit to the Worcester Art Museum, a world-renowned museum known for its eclectic works, is a must. Currently featuring a number of exhibits, like Kennedy To Kent State, the Museum is also in the process of currently integrating a number of pieces from the Higgins Armory collection.
Also in Worcester, for lunch, head over to Coney Island Hot Dog featuring famously-delicious, award-winning hot dogs in a landmark location. Voted “Best Hot Dogs in Worcester,” and known as a Phantom Gourmet ‘Hidden Jewel,’ George’s menu is simple, but fittingly nostalgic.
A short drive over to Sterling, MA, and you’ll find Davis Family Farm, offering a number of family-friendly farmland adventures and activities, and even the Davis Farm Mega Maze (which is currently under construction), one of New England’s most-challenging corn mazes!
And after a day on the farm, you can top-off your adventure with dinner at O’Connor’s Restaurant & Bar, a casual Irish restaurant and bar with an urban feel, serving Irish, European and American favorites seasoned with contemporary culinary ideas. You can check out their full menu here.
