Self-Drive Holidays in New England
There’s nothing quite like the freedom of zipping down the open road without a care in the world on a self-drive holiday. New England makes a perfect base for explorations by car, with well-connected roadways, and plenty of scenic byways that allow you to discover the true local gems you won’t find any other way.
Why take a self-drive?
We believe that travel is enhanced by a close connection to place you’re visiting, and in New England, where sites are relatively close together and communities are often small, driving holidays immerse you in the landscape. You’ll discover local shops and restaurants the guide books can’t get to, and meet the people who call this place home.
What’s more, you can travel at a pace that works for you, and on a route that brings you to all the sites you want to see, from colonial battlefields to local galleries and world-class music venues. New England has plenty to offer the curious traveller, but much of it is tucked in towns and village away from bright lights and big cities.
