This trio of New England states are some of the USA’s hidden gems, home to a healthy mix of pretty coastline and charming countryside.

If you’re planning a trip to beautiful New England, then we’d highly recommend stopping off at New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut. New Hampshire was one of the original 13 states that founded the USA, and as the country's second most forested state, it has some lovely green landscapes; Rhode Island may be the USA’s smallest state by area but it's also the sailing capital of New England and packs a punch when it comes to beaches and bike ride opportunities; and Connecticut is the bridge between New York and New England, home to the prestigious Yale University and plenty of water activities and excursions if you’re keen to get outdoors and keep active.
