Middleborough, MA: Cranberry Capital near Plymouth Rock
Middleborough (which can also correctly be spelled "Middleboro") is a southeastern town in Massachusetts, about 20 minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean and home to the Ocean Spray Cranberries headquarters. This is why Middleborough is known as the "Cranberry Capital of the World," with several large cranberry bogs in the southeastern part of town. A town with a quaint streak, Middleborough made national headlines in 2012 when it passed a ban on public profanity, making it a civil offense to curse in town (there's a $20 fine).
In just a 20-minute car ride from Middleborough, you can be standing at the site of Plymouth Rock in Pilgrim Memorial State Park, one of the nation's most popular parks. Every year, more than one million visitors come to town to walk around the 11-acre park, located at the spot where the Pilgrims landed in 1620. There's also Plimouth Plantation, an indoor and outdoor learning environment on Plymouth's waterfront, where you can visit a 17th-century reconstructed village and explore a replica of the Mayflower.
