How to enjoy Rest of New England

New England symbolizes the very essence of America. After all, this is where America got its start. And while this sense of history remains, the region’s diverse landscapes and slew of attractions makes it tough to pick just one itinerary

  • Hop a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard—off Cape Cod—for a day of upscale shopping, great food and maybe a celeb sighting (musicians love it)
  • A drive through Newport, R.I.’s spectacular oceanfront mansions is a reminder that the Vanderbilts were once very much at home here
  • Maine’s Acadia National Park is actually rife with amazing ocean views; Park Loop Road includes ridges, rocky shores and crashing surf

New England is a collection of six states that shares a history and a no-nonsense philosophy—but not much else. Here, you’ll find everything from cosmopolitan cities to coastal resort areas to charming country sides. Bustling cities like historic Boston, Mass., and booming Providence, R.I., offer urban bliss, while traditionally posh areas like Cape Cod and Newport, R.I., are glamorous retreats.

If the outdoors is calling, try a hike in Vermont’s Green Mountains or New Hampshire’s White Mountains—or exploring Western Massachusetts’ Berkshires area, with rolling hills, quaint villages and antiques shops. And while New England isn’t known for its cuisine, there are a few exceptions—notably Maine lobster, pizza from New Haven, Conn., and Vermont maple syrup. Oh, and quahog clams from anywhere.

    When to visit Rest of New England

    New England is famous for its harsh winters, so unless you’re a cross-country skier, you may want to pick another season. Late spring is very pretty (though muddy), but summer and fall are the winners—as the seasons’ hordes of tourists can attest. If you’ve never been, a “fall color tour” to view the gorgeous autumn leaves is a must.
