Minute Man National Historical Park in Massachusetts is known for Revolutionary history and bold fall colors. Under the rustling leaves, you can hear whispers of the past at the Captain William Smith House. Captain Smith led a small militia against British soldiers at the Battle of Concord, fighting in the fields near his house. The house and fields have been restored to their 1775 appearance, making a visit feel like traveling back in time. Photo by Joseph Sirkovich (www.sharetheexperience.org).
Located along the northeast coast of Massachusetts, Parker River National Wildlife Refuge provides feeding, resting and nesting habitat for a wide variety of migratory birds. The refuge includes more than 4,700 acres of diverse habitats – from sandy beaches and dunes to cranberry bogs, maritime forests and freshwater marshes. The most abundant habitat on the refuge is salt marsh, one of the most productive ecosystems in nature. It’s a great place to see your favorite birds as the fall migrations begin.

Eat too much for Thanksgiving and just want to lay around this weekend? Looks like these cute little foxes feel the same way. Ben Kuropat snapped this pic a few years ago while visiting Cape Cod National Seashore in Massachusetts. Here, visitors can explore 40 miles of pristine sandy beach, wild cranberry bogs and lighthouses – and if you are lucky, you might see some of the wildlife that call this park home.
