Which hikes in Massachusetts are short and sweet?

While heading out with goats is certainly a unique hike in Massachusetts, you can also find plenty of short and sweet trails that offer their own unique features. The Pinehills in Plymouth, for example, is perfect for hikers and kids of all ages, and will take you through the woods. Stroll along wooden boardwalks surrounded by lush forest on the Bristol Blake State Reservation in Norfolk. The trail features shimmering ponds and plenty of shade from the towering trees. Other easy trails worth exploring include Noanet Woodlands in Dover, Chapel Brooks Falls Trail in Ashfield, and Breakhart Reservation in Saugus.

Are there any animal encounters in Massachusetts?

If you enjoyed hiking with goats, you’ll definitely love some of the other animal encounters in Massachusetts. Maple Farm Sanctuary in Mendon, for example, allows you to get up close with rescued farm animals, including Gwen the turkey, goats, and cows. If you’re a fan of alpacas, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary in Norton. There, you can meet the rescued alpacas who have found a safe haven and a loving home at the sanctuary. You’ll definitely want to meet some of the other 300 residents, too, including horses, goats, and ducks.

What are the most unique things to do in Massachusetts?

You’ll find an abundance of unique things to do in Massachusetts. If you really need some relaxation, for example, make an appointment for The Four Elements Salon in Westport, which boasts its own salt cave.

Mapparium, at the Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston, is another unique destination that is bucket list-worthy. The Mapparium is a stained glass globe (the globe is based on 1930s’ data), and you can walk right into it for a one-of-a-kind experience.
