Prefer doing to seeing? Need excitement? Can’t sit still for too long?

If you’re the adventure-seeking type, you’ll feel right at home in Massachusetts. Just embrace your wild side and discover a world of fun: There’s Skydive Pepperell in Greater Merrimack Valley; hike with llamas at Pinetum Farm Llama Hikes; go hot-air ballooning across the Massachusetts countryside at the Balloon School of Massachusetts; dog-mush through the woods of Central Massachusetts; or try ice climbing in the Berkshires.

With four distinct seasons and six diverse regions, you may run out of stamina before you ever run out of adventures. Are you up for the challenge?
