Fun things to do in Massachusetts when the weather gets cold. - When the weather in Massachusetts turns crisp and chilly, it's a great time to come and enjoy some of the 'cool' attractions that aren't offered during the rest of the year.

If you've never heard of a Nor'easter before, spend a winter here and you'll experience the awesomeness of Massachusetts' weather. Yes we get quite a bit of snow, but what would a Christmas holiday be without it?

Less crowded areas, lower rates at Massachusetts hotels, shopping specials, skiing, ice skating and fun holiday festivities are just some of the many reasons to visit Massachusetts during the winter months. Staying in and getting cozy with a glass of wine in front of a warm fire at the Cape Codder Resort & Spa is always a couples favorite too!
