The region of New England is truly wonderful – packed full of history and culture and featuring some breathtaking natural landscapes from rugged cliffs and soft sand beaches on its coast to the verdant mountains of its interior. From the gateway city of Boston you can explore the states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and Maine, and of course experience the kaleidoscope of colours that cover New England each autumn.

  • Boston is scattered with historic sights and quaint brownstone-lined streets while being compact and easy to explore on foot – be sure to follow the famous Freedom trail while in town
  • The eastern-most point of the state of Massachusetts is beautiful Cape Cop boast beaches, lighthouses and wildlife-rich waters
  • New England is the ideal self-drive destination, with mile upon mile of scenic roadway dotted with villages and towns
  • Although autumn is most popular, spring and summer are also ideal times to visit with wildflowers blooming and temperatures rising
  • A trip to New England is not complete without a whale watching trip, with spring and summer the best time to spot a variety of species

Boston is one of my favourite cities. It has such a relaxed feel and it is such a nice change to not have to drive everywhere as this is such a walk-able city. We had a great time walking the Freedom Trail - my sense of direction is awful but you just follow the red brick road.

It was lovely to start our stroll at the beautiful Boston Common and take in all of the sights before crossing over the Charles River where we enjoyed lunch before heading back!
