New England Holidays

New England Holidays

New England is famous for many things; the Boston Tea Party, the Salem witches trials, Vermont's maple syrup, Newport's mansions, and the spectacular colours when the leaves change in autumn. With a roll call such as this (and so much more), it should come as no surprise that holidays to New England are sure to satisfy even the most fussy of travellers. For history lovers it doesn't get much better than exploring New England's fascinating past whether you're going back in time at Mystic Seaport, following the Freedom Trail in Boston, or visiting Harvard, the country's oldest university. It's not all about the past, however, as you'll discover in fun loving, gay friendly Provincetown, or while taking in a ball game at Fenway Park. New England is a great destination, not just for all seasons, but for all time.

New England Activities


New England has an activity for every occasion. Whale watching is best attempted in the summer, whether you're in Maine, Cape Cod, or Boston. Vermont is a wonderland in the winter, with skiing, show shoeing, and sugaring season (maple syrup tapping) all on offer. Hiking is best in Maine and New Hampshire; go in early autumn when the leaves start to change. The coast also has plenty to recommend it, whether you want a day on the beach in Nantucket, or hike Cliff Walk in Newport.

New England Food & Drink


Every season brings fresh bounty to New England such as summer when you can indulge in lunchtime lobster rolls, and baked stuffed clams eaten by the side of the road or in a picturesque marina. Cape Cod is famous for its cranberries, while up in Maine wild blueberries make for a delightful summer. Oysters from Wellfleet ensure that luxury New England holidays are both decadent and delicious, while for something more casual head to New Haven, the home of the hamburger.

New England Attractions


New England has more than enough to keep you busy. Follow the Freedom Trail in Boston for historical enlightenment or visit Mystic Seaport in Connecticut and Plimouth Plantation for an idea of what life was once like for New Englanders. For a more freewheeling look at life today head to Cape Cod's Provincetown, or the collegiate Providence. The lives of New England's elite can be peered at through the windows of Newport's mansions, while the past in still present in eerie Salem.
