Close your eyes and picture the New England countryside. All set? Chances are you’ve conjured up an image of Massachusetts. Somewhere in Mass.—because this smallish state (the country’s 7th smallest, to be precise) is surprisingly diverse in its sights, packing an intriguing blend of natural beauty and rural colonial charm.
With 450,000 acres of protected land, waterways and historical sites, the Massachusetts park system is one of the largest in the U.S. Beyond that, even more acreage is protected by organizations like the Trustees of Reservations, making for some stellar camping and glamping opportunities. From the windswept beaches of Cape Cod to the rolling green hills of the Berkshires to the eclectic lands of Pioneer Valley, there’s an outdoor playground—and Tentrr site—for all tastes in this state.
