Overview

A new and innovative travel guide: 22 weekend trips in New England are each organized around a themeantiquing, museum hopping, books & literary history, island idylls, outdoor activities, romantic rendezvous, winter wonderlands, and many more. With only a weekend to spend, curious travelers in New England in search of stimulating, relaxing getaways often lack the time and energy to plan them. Veteran travel writer Betsy Wittemann has done the work for them by creating this series of weekend getaways that go beyond the usual recommendations of things to see and places to stay and eat. Each chapter in this new guide presents a thoughtfully planned itinerary organized around a theme. Bibliophiles will enjoy Wittemann's book-themed weekend in Boston and Cambridge, which recommends legendary bookstores and literary walking tours. Antique lovers will want to explore the Brimfield/Sturbridge, Massachusetts area, where an enormous triannual antiques fair becomes the focus of a collector's dream weekend. Island idylls include a trip to remote Monhegan Island, Maine, where visitors can stroll craggy shores and stay in intimate inns.Each chapter provides crucial details on how to get there, when to go, and includes appropriate recommendations for dining and lodging. 50 black & white photographs, 26 maps, index.
