I love living in North Central Massachusetts. Any type of vacation is just a short drive away. We can go Metro and take the train to Boston. We can retreat into our own Western mountains or those of NH and VT. We can spend a day at our beaches or those in Maine or Rhode Island. My parents like the Casinos in CT; I like their vintage amusement park. Better yet, continue a couple of hours down the road and we can really switch things up in NYC.
