Here are 5 good reasons why you should consider Southeastern Massachusetts for your next vacation…

It’s Breezy & Beautiful…

Located at the western end of Buzzards Bay, the sandy, southwest-facing, five-mile-long Horseneck Beach is breezy all year round, providing excellent wind surfing and a lovely respite from the warm summer sun. The combination of ocean beach and estuary habitat also makes Horseneck Beach one of the premier birding locations in New England.

It’s Amazingly Arty…

Did you know New Bedford was named the seventh most Artistic City in America in 2011 by the Atlantic CityLab? This impressive statistic is based on the ratio of residents who are professional artists. Stroll along this gorgeous city’s cobblestone streets and you’ll stumble upon galleries, museums and restaurant against a backdrop of exquisite period architecture. In fact, the Downtown Area has been designated a Cultural District because of the close proximity and large number of galleries and exhibits within walking distance to each other. Hop in a car or trolley and you can visit more galleries, artist studios and antique shops in converted textile mills in both the South End and North End of the City.

It’s Heaven For Military History Buffs…

Fall River’s Battleship Cove boasts the world’s largest collection of US Naval vessels. It is home to five National Historic Landmarks: Battleship USS Massachusetts, Destroyer USS Joseph P Kennedy, Jr, the World War II Attack Submarine USS Lionfish, and PT Boats 617 and 796. The centerpiece of the museum is the USS Massachusetts, which arrived in Fall River in June of 1965 after a successful campaign by the wartime crew of “Big Mamie” to save the ship from the scrap yard.

It’s Wonderful For Water-Lovers…

Take to the water with Osprey Sea Kayak and Paddle Boarding in Westport and the Norton Kayak Company in Norton. Head to New Bedford for the Seastreak fast ferry to Martha’s Vineyard or the Cuttyhunk Ferry Company, or hop aboard a harbor tour or sunset cruise with Whaling City Expeditions. Pack a tent and go camping near a scenic lake at the the Canoe River Campground in Mansfield.

It’s Sublime For Shoppers…

From browsing stylish urban art galleries to exploring fashion-forward boutiques and thrift stores, Southeastern Massachusetts is simply sublime for shoppers. Check out the 140 stores at Emerald Square in North Attleboro, find bargains at the brilliant Brahmin Outlet location in Fairhaven, or grab a gift at the fabulous Matouk Factory Store in Fall River. Serious shopaholics should not miss Wrentham Village Premium Outlets in Wrentham or New Bedford Antiques Center, Circa Vintage Wear, or Calico in New Bedford.

This tiny region in Southeastern Massachusetts offers a vibrant theater scene, incredible event experiences, authentic fun and unforgettable memories!
