Where to go in New England
In the northeastern corner of the United States, the region is made up of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. You'll find a warm welcome here, in a region where neighbourhoods are tight-knit and each state has its own cuisine, architecture, and take on life.
New England's wonderful natural beauty extends from the forested hills of Vermont's Green Mountains, where autumn foliage creates a sublime display of red, yellow and auburn trees, to the more than 5,000 miles for inlets, bays and harbours that line the coastline.
And if it's the coast that is drawing you to New England for your next big trip, you can discover the white-sand beaches and quaint antique shops of Cape Cod, the colourful cottages of Martha's Vineyard and the historic public mansions of Rhode Island. Seaside holidays in New England are relaxed, classic getaways, where you're as likely to find yourself strolling a whitewashed boardwalk as sailing on the Atlantic's waves.
Dine at dockside restaurants on delicious clam chowder, fresh from-the-sea lobster and local blueberry pie. Bike, hike, zipline, ski or snowboard in the Green or White Mountains, swim and sail at Lake Winnipesaukee or watch out for whales on the coast.
