Synopses & Reviews
Tired of the same old tourist traps? Take the road less traveled and discover the hidden attractions, unique finds, and unusual locales other guidebooks just don't offer. Off the Beaten Path® features the things you'd want to see-if only you knew about them! From the best in local dining to quirky cultural tidbits, you'll say over and over again: "I didn't know that!"
Whether you're a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Massachusetts Off the Beaten Path show you the Bay State you never knew existed. Listen to bell ringers play mathematically patterned tunes in Boston, hike through a huge ravine strewn with giant boulders near Worcester, or explore one of the three original nineteenth-century covered bridges still left in the state. So if you've "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
Experience the lesser-known joys of the Bay State, from watching a sea of red cranberries harvested from blue bogs, to walking through a stained glass globe, to relaxing at the Bridge of Flowers over the Deerfield River.
