The Mighty Connecticut River Is Massachusetts’ Longest, Traveling 410 Miles To The Sea

Massachusetts is the home of many beautiful slices of nature, but one of the most prominent is often the most overlooked. The Connecticut River is a mighty river that isn’t only the longest in our state, but all of New England. If you grew up in the Bay State, there’s a good chance you’ve driven over this massive river in Pioneer Valley or a tiny town or two. While it’s easy to take this beautiful river for granted since we see it so often, it’s good to slow down and take it all in. Let’s stop for a minute and highlight the amazing Connecticut River in Massachusetts.
