Not to brag, but Massachusetts was made for family fun. We have six zoos and three aquariums. We have hundreds of charming farms, where you can pick strawberries, peaches, or apples, and pet goats, ponies, or sheep. We have a pirate museum, a witch museum, and an Animagic museum. For fresh air family fun, we have the best beaches for sandcastle building, the best places to pitch a tent, and the best places to learn how to ski. For rainy days, we have an indoor trampoline park, an indoor water park, and one of the best children’s museums in the country. We have the Basketball Hall of Fame, Volleyball Hall of Fame, and one of the most famous and beloved ballparks in the world. We have swan boats, duck tours, whale watches and dinosaur tracks. Quite simply, we have everything fun for kids of any and all ages. Okay, maybe that was a little bit of bragging.
