You could practically spend your entire Massachusetts vacation outdoors. In the spring, fishing, camping, hiking, biking, and cheering on the Red Sox at historic Fenway Park. In the summer, soaking up the sun on gorgeous beaches, white water rafting, whale watching, putt sinking, ice cream eating, and still cheering on the Sox. In the fall, leaf peeping at the brilliant foliage; losing your voice at a Patriots game at Gillette Stadium; petting goats, picking apples and sipping cider at any number of picture perfect small farms; and yep, still cheering on the Sox. Think there are no outdoor activities in the winter? Think again. There’s skiing, riding and tubing at one of 12 fantastic ski areas; dog sledding; and ice fishing; all while heatedly discussing the spring prospects for the Sox, of course.
