For such a smallish state (10,555 sq. mi.), there sure are a bucket list of Massachusetts destination locations to visit, to stay and explore. Tourism, both international and US increases yearly for destinations like the Berkshires, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Boston and beyond.
It all started in Massachusetts, literally! Take the Freedom Trail in Boston and learn how our country arose from 13 colonies to 13 states. The preservation of historic landmarks along the Freedom Trail in Boston is a huge draw for tourists. Preservation has a lot to do with tourism to the Bay State.
So what does preservation have to do with tourism? Read on.
In a recent article; ‘Too many misunderstand the true impact of tourism’ By Marshall Helmberger, he refers to Edward McMahon, a Senior Resident Fellow at Urban Land Institute in Washington D.C. He provides some great insights as to why preservation has a lot to do with tourism.
“Preserve and restore historic buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes — these are what make our communities unique. Communities that don’t preserve their history, or encourage development that’s not in keeping with the community’s character (think chain stores and restaurants), lose their cultural memory and their soul. There are plenty of communities that have been swallowed up by strip development, big box stores and fast food chains, and there is absolutely no reason for anyone to ever venture out of their way to such places, since they all look the same.”
I believe this statement is very powerful! Historic homes and estates that have been converted into bed and breakfasts and historic country inns are prime examples of thoughtful preservation and restoration. Innkeepers are excellent stewards of their inns and take great pride in the character of their property and community.
Massachusetts destination inns for sale offer historic charm, character and a unique experience that are very inviting to visitors to the state. Walk down any main street on the Cape or in Berkshire County and you can find preserved historic homes and estates mingled with bed and breakfasts and one of a kind retail stores and restaurants. No two are alike. Authenticity reigns!
Beside the preservation of brick and mortar there is land and sea.
- Cape Cod National Seashore that protects nearly the whole eastern coast of the Cape, keeping a 40-mile stretch of sand and dunes almost unchanged since the 1800s.
- Mohawk Trail Region offers miles of scenic driving tours. 5 separate picturesque Massachusetts countryside drives through the Berkshire Hills.
- Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary is an underwater plateau in the Atlantic at the mouth of Massachusetts Bay. View protected marine life; whales, dolphins, harbor porpoises and seals.
And if music and art feed your soul there is:
- Tanglewood Concerts: Summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in Lenox in the heart of the Berkshires.
- About 1000 (may I exaggerate?) museums of art from the Museum of Fine Art Boston to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge.
And then there is food. Seafood is the number one agricultural product, followed by cranberries.
If you are seeking a quality of life that includes all the cultural and historical preservation that Massachusetts destination locations have to offer and… if living and owning your own hospitality business is a dream and goal of yours. Consider inns for sale in Massachusetts.
