Come Home to New England

Hardy colonists went to New England, saw the wild and wooly country, and said, “I belong to this place.” There are whales and dolphins, thousands of bird species, and wild moose. Sailing along the coastline is a favorite pastime, and so is bringing in a harvest of lobsters, hiking mountains, and walking sandy beaches. (And Salem no longer has it in for witches.)

FALL OPTIONS

New England, the Ultimate Autumn Destination

Close your eyes and imagine New England in autumn—it seems as if nature made this area specifically to show off her colors before the world is covered with snow. Vermont is 76% forested and has the greatest concentration of sugar maples in the country—they explode with colors. Poplars and birch trees are also a riot of reds, oranges, and yellows.

New England’s shoreline matches the colors inland, and you have the bonus of fresh seafood. Lobster season ends in December—enjoy! Explore Acadia National Park with its miles of old carriage trails. Consider climbing to the top of Portland’s Observatory for panoramic views of the harbor and foliage. Sail Boston Harbor and take a historic walk.

Quaint villages are bursting with the festivities of fall. Craft breweries abound. Visit cranberry bogs. Imagine hay rides, apple cider doughnuts, fresh pressed apple and ginger apple cider, and a distillery that makes apple brandy. All lodgings are perfection. The scents and sights let you know that this autumn could only happen in New England.

The story of New England…

… is the beginning of America’s history. We travel to Boston and walk the same streets our ancestors walked in the 17th century. We go to Plymouth and imagine the Pilgrims landing. Far from the Crown, New Englanders governed themselves. The Crown took note. (Indigenous people were overwhelmed.) After 150-years of skirmishes, America fought and won its independence.

It truly was a Revolution. New England businesses boomed. Yankee Clippers sailed global ports, including China and South America. These days, we love New England’s 5,000-mile coastline and her maple trees. We revel in outdoor adventures—fishing, swimming, and sailing. Her fine food, brews, and humor are beyond compare. We fall down under the spell of her colors in autumn. Experience the spirit of New England.
