"New EnglandTraditionally, New..." United States of America Favorite Tip by DesertRat

United States of America General: 468 reviews and 455 photos


Favorite thing: <decide on a region.>

<b>New England</b>

Traditionally, New England refers to the six very small states in the Northeast corner of the country: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. This region is compact and ideally suited for Europeans who want a taste of the country without having to spend endless time either flying or driving. It’s also quite varied: the coast of Maine is easily as rugged as Scotland or Ireland, while the coast of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut is much more akin to the North Sea coast of Germany or Holland. Flying into the region from Europe is also convenient, for there are frequent flights to both Boston and New York/Newark from most major European centers.

Fondest memory: <b>Photo: Fall in New England is a visual banquet. Here, a skift of snow dusts Vermont's Mt. Mansfield.</b>

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
