Massachusetts is one of the oldest states in America. Its historical significance is immeasurable -- and far out of proportion for its size -- but it is also a modern place, with lots to see and do. Boston is one of America's largest (and most congested) metropolises, while the coastal vacation areas of Cape Cod, Martha's Vinyard, and Nantucket provide salty fun. The western state, peppered with small colleges, has a woodsy feel.
