“Sightseeing” seems like such a passive word; Massachusetts sightseeing should really be called “sight-experiencing”. How else would you describe retracing the steps of the colonists, soaring through the trees on a canopy tour, reliving the excitement of the Revolutionary War, quacking like a duck on an amphibious land vehicle, seeing Boston by Segway, cruising Buzzards Bay, or taking a spooky Dead of Night Ghost Tour? You can even munch your way through the Cape Cod Potato Chip factory tour, take the most delicious ride during a Bike Farm Table weekend, or treat yourself to the Beer & Chocolate tour of Boston. Hey, is there such a thing as sight-eating?
