Build Your Summer Vacation Around ANC 2014


June 11, 2014 - The city of Boston, the state of Massachusetts and the entire New England region are rich with history, culture, nature and beauty. Whether you’re traveling from near or far, SNA’s Annual National Conference (ANC), July 13-16, 2014, is the perfect excuse to plan a perfect New England summer vacation—you can even bring the family along!

Trying to see every landmark in Boston, whether historic, cultural or otherwise, could fill months of your time. Make the most of your trip by paying a visit to these five most-commonly recommended sights — and mark the others as “must-sees” the next time you’re in town!

  • The Freedom Trail. This is almost a cheat because so many must-see sights reside on the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile stretch of all things pertaining to the Revolutionary War. Put on your walking shoes to visit the Paul Revere House, the Massachusetts State Hall and original site of Boston Latin School, the first public school in the nation, among the 16 landmarks on the trail.
  • Cambridge. This is technically an entirely different city, but anyone interested in higher education will want to hop over the Charles River and visit the home of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  • The Sports Museum. The Patriots, the Red Sox, the Celtics, the Bruins, even the Boston Marathon is chronicled in this must-visit for sports fans, located in TD Garden arena. Don’t forget about Fenway Park down the road; the Red Sox aren’t at home, but public tours are still available.
  • Black Heritage Trail. An end point on the Underground Railroad, Boston has a long history in African-American culture. The Black Heritage Trail connects 15 important landmarks, including the African Meeting House and Lewis and the Harriet Hayden House.
  • Boston Public Garden/Boston Commons. One of these two public parks just might be the place for a picnic dinner after a long day of education sessions. The open green spaces in the heart of Boston feature statues, plenty of plant life and swan boat rides.

With a great city like Boston as the backdrop, it’s just one of many reasons why you can’t afford to miss this year’s ANC, otherwise known as the School Nutrition Event of the Year! To learn more about ANC and to register, visit
