One of the most profound aspects of Central Massachusetts is its prevailing influence in American history and culture. Located just south of Worcester, the Blackstone River transformed an agricultural American society into one of industry. The river powered the American Industrial Revolution, and today offers visitors the opportunity to investigate why the Blackstone is responsible for many of the things we now take for granted.
The Blackstone flows with history, however new recreational activities have recently flooded the Blackstone. Canoeing, fishing, kayaking, hiking, and cross-country skiing (to name just a few) can all be enjoyed on the reenergized Blackstone River. Impressive scenery and wildlife is sure to accompany you during your time here. The Blackstone River is one of this region’s most pristine areas.
The area not only offers opportunities for outdoor adventure and history. Whether you are aiming for a romantic getaway, or a fun time for the kids, the Blackstone River Valley has it covered. Superb shopping, sports, gambling, and giraffes can all be enjoyed in the same day-which makes for an eclectic offering to say the least! Feel free to look into all that the Blackstone River Valley has to offer, and create your own trip to remember!
