There is so much to do all within minutes of On Cranberry Pond.
You will find excitement in Boston
, with its wonderful shopping, museums and sporting events. The Boston Ballet features a variety of shows including its renowned version of "The Nutcracker" during the holidays. Faneuil Hall, Cheers, and Union Oyster House are places to rest and eat while in town. The train, which is only a few minutes from us, will take you directly into Boston, another added convenience.
Rhode Island is a mere 40 minute drive and offers some of the best sightseeing around. Between the mansions of Newport, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Water Fire at night, Slater Mill (birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in North America) or other venues, you could find yourself immersed in one of the most unique day trips you'll ever have.
In between Rhode Island and Cape Cod is New Bedford. Its huge fishing fleet and rich history inspired a number of books and stories by Herman Melville. The New Bedford Whaling Museum, surrounding shops and restaurants will make you feel as though you have stepped back in time.
Cape Cod is right around the corner, and it too offers spectacular sights. From the mainland you'll enjoy quaint towns such as Falmouth, Hyannis or Brewster out to the very "tip" of the Cape, Provincetown. A ferry boat ride will get you to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket for the day or overnight.
Last but certainly not least, is nearby historic Plymouth. Whale watching, charter boat fishing, sailing, and jet skiing (rentals available) are just some of the many things that America's hometown offers. Many shops that line "Olde Main Street" specialize in one of a kind items and plenty of antiques. Plimoth Plantation is a wonderful "living" museum, as well as Plymouth Rock and a replica of the Mayflower that you can explore. Be sure to book for next year as Plymouth will celebrate its 400th birthday! It is certainly going to be a party to remember.
