Don’t tell anyone, but Massachusetts is kind of a big nerd. We simply love science and nature. You could say it’s in our nature, with scenic roads like the lovely Mohawk Trail, 1500 miles of postcard pretty coastline, and some of America’s most brilliant fall foliage. We could spend hours at the Museum of Science, the Harvard Museum of Natural History, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and wish we could live at the Franklin Park Zoo or maybe the Butterfly Place, surrounded by colorful creatures. And don’t even get us started on the New England Aquarium, fully renovated in 2013.

June is rivers month. Check out the 2014 Massachusetts Rivers Months Calendar.
