Rich in Historical Significance, Natural Beauty & Culinary Distinction
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe autumn in New England. It is vibrant and enchanting – with the crisp chill in the ocean breeze, campfires and clambakes on the Atlantic shore, inland forests ablaze with crimson and gold, cheers emanating from football stadiums.
The New England states include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The region is fairly bulging with feasts for the eyes and the palate -- from tantalizing seafood to lip-smacking maple syrup to fine artisanal cheeses; from historic monuments to dense forests to seashore. Harvard and Yale are here, as well as several fine culinary schools, including Johnson & Wales and the New England Culinary Institute. Inhabitants take great pride in their region, and tourists flock here to see the rugged cliffs of Maine, Plymouth Plantation in Massachusetts, the fabulous fall foliage in Vermont, Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, the majestic granite mountains of New Hampshire and the mansions of Newport in Rhode Island. And, people come just to spoil themselves with seafood.
Boston is New England’s largest city, replete with historical significance, cosmopolitan sophistication and some of the finest seafood available anywhere. The Freedom Trail is a two-mile walking tour that passes 16 historically significant sites in one fell swoop, including Faneuil Hall, the Paul Revere House, the Old North Church and the Bunker Hill Monument – just to name a few.
America’s oldest restaurant is here -- The Union Oyster House, which began operation in 1826. Boston is beloved for its Boston Pops on the Fourth of July, Red Sox games at storied Fenway Park, the Cheers bar where everybody knows your name, the USS Constitution in the harbor and so much more.
