Central Massachusetts welcome guests to rest in the lap of history

As the home state of Plymouth Rock and several critical sites of the American Revolution, Massachusetts is arguably among the most historic places in the United States. Historic hotels and inns are numerous in Central MA. Many of these Colonial-era or 18th- and 19th-century hotels and inns boast period furnishings and owners who are more than happy to discuss the period with visitors. Highlights of Central Massachusetts, in addition to the towns of Sturbridge, Worcester, and Marlborough, are Old Sturbridge Village, a replica of a 19th-century New England farming town; Quabbin Reservoir, with fishing, hiking, and picnicking; Wachusett Mountain Ski Area in Princeton; Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon; and lots of wonderful farms and orchards that welcome visitors.
