Overview

Have you ever wondered what backroad adventures might lie between the sandy shores of Cape Cod and Connecticut’s “Quiet Corner”? Have you explored the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” at Point Judith in Rhode Island or taken a ferry ride across Lake Champlain in Vermont?
 
A celebration of New England’s character and natural beauty, this updated, portable second edition of Backroads of New England—written and photographed by local experts—takes you on thirty routes leading to the area’s most secluded and overlooked natural areas as well as sites that capture New England’s colorful history. You can explore Moose Alley on your way to Dixville Notch, small-town site of the country’s first primary election each year. You can drive the Mohawk Trail on your way to Mount Greylock to get a good look at that beautiful autumn color or visit actor William Gillette’s medieval castle on the banks of the Connecticut River. All these places and more are detailed within, including directions and maps to lead the way.
 
Whether you’re planning a day trip, looking for unusual destinations, or simply want to learn more, Backroads of New England will lead you deep into the soul of New England—beyond the bustling cities and common tourist attractions.
