Love to experience as much as possible when you travel? If so, you may want to make the North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley area your next stop.
With beautiful harbors nestled throughout 30 miles of rocky coastline, North of Boston is a haven for beach lovers and seafaring types alike. But, with a rich history, it's also the perfect destination for those interested in cultural activities — from Salem Witch Trial attractions to art museums to the many sites dedicated to the area's seafaring heritage.
Then there's Greater Merrimack Valley, where not one, but two revolutions took place. Lexington and Concord offer a vivid view into many of the most critical American Revolution events. While Lowell, with its 19th century mill buildings, is a testament to the Bay State's large role in the Industrial Revolution and the textile industry.
Discover north of Boston and Greater Merrimack Valley, where maritime lore meets American history.
