Across Massachusetts, you’ll find natural and manmade wonders around every turn.

40 miles of unspoiled sandy beaches along the Cape Cod National Seashore await your footprints. Out in the western part of the state, you can follow in the footsteps of Native Americans along the 63-mile Mohawk Trail. Or follow some nearby, but larger footsteps: the Nash Dinosaur Tracks dinosaur footprint quarry.

A national landmark on Martha’s Vineyard, the multi-colored Aquinnah Cliffs offer stunning views from a multi-colored cliff formation… Explore the 34 Boston Harbor Islands and enjoy kayaking, camping, swimming and more, accessible by ferry from Boston… Chesterfield Gorge in Western Massachusetts features a 60-acre preserve for hiking, fishing and picnicking.
