Whether you’re sporting two wheels or four, riding a bike is efficient, economical, healthy, ecological and fun - and just about anyone can do it.
Cycling is celebrated around the country in May during National Bike Month. And this week in Massachusetts, it’s Bay State Bike Week, culminating in Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 17. In keeping with the spirit, we’ve rounded up some suggestions for area biking trails, family-friendly cycling tours, and special biking events taking place this spring.
Have a day or two to get away with the family? One of the best things about living around Boston is the multitude of options for day trips and weekend getaways.
Like hiking or skiing? We've got that, in the mountains of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine or Vermont. The beach? From Cape Cod to the coast of Maine to western Mass, oceans, bays, and lakes beckon. Cultural options? Cities like Portland, Springfield and Providence and living history venues like Plimoth Plantation and Sturbridge Village are all an easy one to two hours from Boston.
To help with your planning, we've compiled a list of great day trip and weekend getaway ideas here in New England for you and your family. Enjoy these mini stay-cation ideas and have fun making memories! And if you're looking for more ideas, be sure to visit our New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Long Island sites, too!
