New England

Whether whale-watching off Cape Cod, exploring Boston’s Freedom Trail, feasting on lobster in Maine, or admiring the breathtaking Fall colours in Vermont, New England is a treasure trove of history, cuisine and stunning landscapes.

New England is the birthplace of the USA, steeped in the history of the pilgrims and the Revolutionary War, but has also attracted tourists for centuries seeking sunshine and relaxation.

The region swells with visitors in summer to relax on its beaches, tour its lighthouses and watch humpback whales in the Atlantic Ocean. In autumn, New England is the most spectacular US region to see the Fall colours in the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire. A highlight of any trip to New England is the friendly locals serving up a feast of scrumptious food – from Boston clam chowder to Portland lobster and Vermont maple syrup.

Boston is one of America’s greatest cities with a beautiful harbour and the famous Freedom Trail of Revolutionary War sites. South of the city, “America’s hometown” Plymouth is where the Mayflower pilgrims landed in 1620 with a replica of the original ship.

Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are renowned for hundreds of miles of beaches, charming towns and unforgettable whale-watching, while “Ocean State” Rhode Island is famous for its sailing community and Newport’s Gilded Age mansions such as The Breakers.

North of Boston is the infamous town of Salem, site of the 1692 witch trials. Salem has fascinating museums and one of the biggest Halloween celebrations in the world throughout October.

Inland from the coast is where New England’s landscapes really take your breath away – from The Berkshires in Western Massachusetts to the New Hampshire Lakes, havens for hiking and boating in wonderful scenery.

The most spectacular New England regions – at any time of year but especially for the Fall colours – are New Hampshire’s White Mountains with forested peaks, waterfalls and dramatic railways, and Vermont’s Green Mountains, home to quintessential New England towns like Woodstock and Stowe, surrounded by stunning hiking and cycling trails.

Maine is the largest state in New England, a haven for foodies and wildlife lovers alike – the whale-watching here is among the best on the east coast. Portland, known as “the restaurant city”, has topped polls for best food in the USA with an astonishing array of gourmet cuisine. Acadia National Park boasts some of the most spectacular landscapes in the region, best explored on the car-free Carriage Roads, and the park’s highest point Cadillac Mountain is the ideal place to view the first sunrise in the USA.
