Spirit of America

I always look forward to the 4th of July Holiday.   To me it’s about family, friends and neighbors celebrating our Nation’s birthday and rejoicing in our liberty and freedom.     I have first-hand knowledge of what our Nation’s freedom means.   We lost a young soldier, a family member,  eight years ago in Baghdad and I think […]

Nature in the Greater Merrimack Valley

Nature surrounds us and provides us sanctuary from the everyday stress of the hustle and bustle.  For this reason, I’d have to say that one of the greatest attractions in the City of Lowell would be the Merrimack River.  To visit Lowell Heritage State park and walk along the boulevard, or the boardwalk, is a […]

Road Trip: Concord & Lexington

Road Trip: Concord & Lexington By Leigh Harrington You don’t need to look to Old North Church for two lanterns to see that you should hit the road for Concord and Lexington, Massachusetts, while visiting Boston.

The Great Race Comes to Lowell This June

By Steve Whipple. Ten states in nine days. That’s an ambitious schedule for a vacationing family in a modern SUV. But it’s borderline crazy for the 100 drivers, navigators and vintage vehicles that will be zigzagging down the East Coast’s back roads in the 2014 Great Race.

CVB Staffers hit the White Water!

My nerves build as we enter the meeting room at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center.  My co-worker Courtney O’Malley and I walk in to find a group of friendly people who look a lot more prepared for what is to come than us.  Zoar, the company operating the trip,  let us know that […]
