About the Author

Eric Hurwitz writes straight from the heart on New England travel for his readers on VisitingNewEngland.com. A lifelong New Englander inspired on a daily basis by the six-state region, Hurwitz has covered many aspects of New England travel since 2001 but with a particular interest in sharing hidden destinations, attractions and restaurants with his audience. Through the years, media and online informational outlets like USA Today, Woman's World, the Maine Office of Tourism, BusinessInsider.com, eHow.com and Wikipedia.com have referenced select VisitingNewEngland.com articles. Hurwitz holds a bachelors degree in journalism from Suffolk University in Boston, Mass., and spent 20-plus years as a reporter, assistant editor, and public affairs specialist in the public and private sectors before starting his work of love, VisitingNewEngland.com.
