Massachusetts has something for everyone; world class shopping, historical sites, cultural events, scenic routes, and glorious food! From Cape Cod and the Islands to the Berkshire Hills, each Massachusetts region offers the epicurean something unique to savor at every stop. Where else would you expect to have such a celebrated variety of culinary options than the birthplace of the first Thanksgiving?

Our regional bounty presents exceptional culinary experiences throughout the seasons. Warm your winter with a visit to a Maple sugarhouse for pancakes with real maple syrup. Spring and summer welcome visits to farm stands and area farmers’ markets. A fall foliage trip would not be complete without a sampling of freshly pressed apple cider and cider donuts from a Massachusetts orchard. Whatever season you choose, your culinary journey would not be complete without a taste of a quality locally made product; cranberry jelly, a bowl of our “famous” clam “chowdah”, a slice of Boston cream pie, award winning farmstead cheese, or a sip of locally produced wine and beer. Buy local in western Mass with Berkshire Grown.
