The role of New England mill towns in the industrial revolution — an absorbing and sometimes heartbreaking story — is explained at the Lowell National Historical Park (; 978-970-5000). Travel through a large, now-picturesque brick mill complex from the 1830s, either by boat on the canals that once supplied power to the mills or by hopping on and off trolleys that run year round.

Lowell has become a destination city, boasting great tourist attractions, a vibrant arts scene, first class restaurants, wonderful architecture, and a welcoming community eager to please visitors.
