Massachusetts Spring Break Staycation Ideas

If you are opting to stay home this spring break, it provides a great opportunity to explore your own state as Massachusetts has so many gems to add to your must do list! Opt for these Massachusetts spring break spots:

Plimoth Patuxet Plantation:

Plimoth Plantation opens in March. A visit offers powerful personal encounters with history built on thorough research about the Wampanoag People and the Colonial English community in the 1600s. The views are stunning on a clear day as well.

Wolf Hollow:

The Wolf Hollow Preserve in Ipswich gives visitors a unique opportunity to meet their resident gray wolves during a one-hour educational presentation while observing the wolves interacting with their pack-mates at close range. An experience not to be missed!

Dr. Seuss Museum:

The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum and the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden are located right in the heart of downtown Springfield. The museum features family friendly, interactive exhibits exploring Dr. Seuss’s Springfield roots and provides opportunities to experiment with new sounds and vocabulary, play rhyming games, and invent stories–all in line with Geisel’s revolutionary role in changing how we learn to read. Kids of all ages (and parents, too!) are sure to enjoy this outing.

Three Sisters Sanctuary:

Located in the hills of western Massachusetts, visit the Three Sisters Sanctuary to explore and experience the magic of this 8 acre whimsical place where art and nature merge.
