Enjoy Southeastern MA!

Southeastern Massachusetts is a great place to explore.  Discover the wonders of the natural world by roaming around a cranberry bog at Myles Standish State Forest, splash in the kettle ponds at Nickerson State Park, or build a sand castle at Scusset Beach State Reservation or Nantasket Beach.  Cruise along the Cape Cod Rail Trail on your bike, ride the waves on your boogie board at Horseneck Beach State Reservation, and make s’mores around a campfire at Shawme Crowell State Forest.  Learn about Massachusetts history and see the world-famous Plymouth Rock and Pilgrim Memorial State Park, or head up to Borderland State Park to see a gigantic twenty-room stone mansion! The southern region offers plenty of opportunities to have fun with your family and friends.
