50 Massachusetts activities for under $50

See also

With warmer weather on the horizon, now is the time for Boston residents and New England explorers alike to leave their homes, apartments, and winter dens and start exploring what the state of Massachusetts has to offer. Massachusetts has so many parks, museums, and natural beauties that it is hard to imagine where to start, but the official site of the Massachusetts Office of Tourism and Travel, has created a page loaded with great options: their "50 Under $50" features 50 great family activities for under $50 (for families of 4 or less).

The page offers options in the Greater Boston area, like the Stone Zoo, Arnold Arboretum, and Fenway Park Tours; while those looking to get out of the city without blowing their entire annual tax refund can still venture north, south, east or west to find fun (and savings!). The page offers unusual options like:

-Maple Sugaring Tours north of Boston (weekends in March)
-A Whaling Museum south of Boston
-Botanical Gardens in Central Mass
-The Clark Art Center in Western Mass
-Woods Hole Aquarium on Cape Cod
