Read an Excerpt

Destination New England

If New England didn't exist, Currier & Ives might have had to invent it. Its immaculate village greens, brilliant white clapboard churches, covered bridges, and lighthouses are national emblems, along with the seasons themselves. But New England is much more than a colossal picture postcard: the historic sites witnessed events chronicled in classrooms across the country, the antiques shops and discount malls are legendary, and urban pleasures flourish, from lively restaurants to the performing arts. New England is a pleasure trove -- if you know where to look.


Maine's rugged splendor sets it apart from its more pastoral neighbors. Lush pine and spruce forests extend from a few miles inland all the way to the Canadian border, a ragged carpet of dark green punctuated by sparkling ponds and lakes where vacationers get cozy in rustic summer homes and generations of children have gobbled s'mores at camp. But for most travelers Maine's coast is its big draw. Lobster pots and buoys, monuments to a key coastal pleasure, stand at the ready up and down the shores. They're a constant reminder of what's cooking for dinner: sweet, sea-tangy lobster at sardine prices.

New Hampshire

The state has a little of everything that defines New England: a seacoast around the historic city of Portsmouth, many covered bridges, and seasonal pleasures, from sailing on the central lakes to skiing and ice-skating at the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel, up north. As for fall foliage, it's the region's fieriest. It's positively soul-stirring to walk the section of the Maine-to-Georgia Appalachian Trail that passes through the forest and over the rocky,wind-pummeled summit of Mt. Washington, the Northeast's highest peak. But if you're not up to the exertion, not to worry: Driving up the Mt. Washington Auto Road yields equally stunning views.


Over the past few decades, many parts of Vermont have absorbed waves of middle-class urban refugees bent on taking up residence year-round. Along with these well-dressed masses, yearning to be stress-free, has come a touch of semiprecious gentrification. Some of the happy visitors come to ski at world-famous resorts such as Stowe, Sugarbush, Killington, Mount Snow, and the defiantly retro Mad River Glen. Other visitors drink in the charm of picture-book villages like Newfane. Still others stop along superscenic country roads like Route 100, to learn about maple syrup in local sugar shacks, or wet their lines in trout streams like the Battenkill.


Massachusetts, and arguably America, began on Cape Cod: the Pilgrims landed at what is now Provincetown before moving on to nearby Plymouth a few decades shy of 400 years ago. So it's fitting that Cape Cod is now one of America's favorite travel destinations. Sun, sand, and sparkling sea are the lures, of course, not any deep homing instinct that leads us back to ancestral ground. Full of salty, windswept beauty, the Cape -- and the neighboring islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard -- are irresistible, and those who love them return every year.

Rhode Island

For the smallest state in the Union, Rhode Island is long on diversions. About a fifth of the National Historic Landmarks in the United States sit within Rhode Island's compact borders. Many landmarks are in Newport, including a number of marble-and-gilt "cottages" like the Breakers. Cornelius Vanderbilt II, who created the mansion, spent his Augusts clinking champagne flutes with his buddies in their own ballrooms, rallying on the grass tennis courts of the Newport Casino, and letting sea breezes put pretense behind him on the waters of Narragansett Bay, much like the Wall Street titans who summer in Rhode Island today.


New England's most distinctive border with the rest of America is in Connecticut. While you don't notice much change as you move from Massachusetts or Vermont into upstate New York, the regionalfeeling is very striking when you come into the area from New York's Westchester County, immediately north of the Bronx. With the state's many highways, it's all too easy to shoot past such bits of New England charm. Those who pause are rewarded along the coast by reminders of the area's seafaring past, such as the Maritime Aquarium in Mystic Seaport. Inland and northward on up to the border with Massachusetts, picturesque small towns can hold their own with any on the New England scene.
