New England is extraordinary. Making up only about a quarter of 1.77% of the land mass of the United States, New England offers a huge number of attractions for visitors – miles of beaches to enjoy, mountains to hike and ski, rural towns (and cities!) to explore, and many, many historical areas.
I live in Massachusetts (but spent many years in Connecticut and Maine). The best thing about visiting Massachusetts is how central it is to all the New England states. Flying into Boston in a day’s drive you can reach – the rocky coast of Maine, the ski towns in Vermont, the mountains of New Hampshire, the Connecticut countryside, or the 400 miles of Rhode Island shoreline. You could begin your day on the cliff walk in Newport, RI, and end it with lobster rolls in Kennebunkport, ME.
I welcome you (virtually) to my little corner of the U.S., and share some New England vacation ideas.
