The Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism (MOTT) is promoting outdoor activities across the Commonwealth for families to enjoy during School Vacation Week, February 16-24, 2019. Among the winter assets in Massachusetts are 12 alpine ski resorts, with downhill options for skiers and snowboarders at all levels, as well as snow tubing, cross country and snowshoeing facilities. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), which manages 450,000 acres of open space, has dozens of family-friendly activities being offered in state parks across Massachusetts with 12 Visitor Centers open and fully staffed. The Trustees of the Reservations, which manages 100 properties spanning 27,000+ acres, is offering its Staycation with the Trustees program of outdoor activities, from drop-off and drop-in programs at local farms, to sledding, snowshoe walks and scavenger hunts. The Mass Audubon Society has a full week of children’s activities, including birdwatching and nature walks, at outdoor facilities throughout the Commonwealth.
