Around 25 miles (40 km) from Boston, this formerly witchy town now has a much more positive vibe. During spring, tourists come to Salem State University to gaze at gorgeous cherry blossoms. The main cherry trees are located in front of the Sullivan building of the campus. Be sure to visit the university’s official Facebook page beforehand to see if the place isn’t too crowded.
The city of Hopkinton hosts a unique organization called Hopkinton Stone and Garden Center. The center is both a plant store and a tree nursery, which means it’s home to young trees. Biologists take special care of all greenery, including young cherry trees. At the spot, you’ll be able to witness small sakuras before they “grow up,” so be sure to come by and enjoy your time.
