Where is New England? Located in the northeast corner of the USA, New England is made up of 6 diverse US States:

  • Connecticut
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • New Hampshire
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont

New England’s appeal goes right across the board. Couples love the romantic country inns and fine restaurants. Families love outdoor activities, such as whale watching, children’s amusement parks, interactive museums, and thrill rides. As for adventure, try hiking and biking in the mountains, sailing aboard a windjammer or riding the rapids. From world-class art museums to some of America’s best shopping, New England has it all.

Top Things to do

  • In Connecticut, board a boat and cruise up the lower Connecticut River Valley. Sit back and relax as you pass Colonial farmhouses, red barns and apple orchards, as well as rocky cliffs and a variety of trees aflame with colour.
  • Get away from it all in Maine, canoeing on the Saint Croix River. Even beginners can go with the flow, paddling through wilderness foliage along a chain of lakes. Go with a guide; camp under the stars; eat round a campfire.
  • Fall is the best time of year togo walking in Massachusetts. Mount Greylock is the state’s highest peak: drive part way up, then hike for 90 minutes to the 3,941-ft summit, with its views of five states. There is colour wherever you look!
  • Or take the easy route. Ride a cable car to a mountain top in New Hampshire. In the White Mountains, peaks in the Presidential Range are named for US presidents and well over 4,000 feet. Views are simply spectacular.
  • A great way to enjoy fallis cycling in Rhode Island. The state has plenty of trails, such as the 15-mile East Bay Bike Path along Narragansett Bay. Colour is provided by trees and plants, such as the cranberry, whose leaves turn scarlet.
  • The most popular state for leaf peepers is Vermont – criss-crossed by scenic drives. Follow lanes through the mountains and into valleys, past villages with white churches and into forests in the Green Mountains. Enjoy fall crafts festivals!
