Massachusetts Meeting & Event Planning City Guide

Boston, the powerhouse of Massachusetts meeting and event planning locations, wows groups with abundant accommodations, a surprisingly green and outdoor-friendly lifestyle and easy day trips to spas, water activities and iconic historic destinations. However, a look outside Boston proper for meeting and event planning sites also yields charming historic districts. Cities such as Lowell, Worcester and Brookline are near Boston and provide loads of meeting space, value, style, gardens, parks and even more New England food and culture.
