in the rolling green hills of
Vermont, complete with many cows and fewer people. Here, you will find
picture-perfect postcard villages, where life is relaxed and the Green Mountains
scenery often spectacular. Of particular interest are the lovely small towns of
Stowe, Newfane, Weston, Woodstock and Waitsfield. And what about New Hampshire? We could writ a book on the wonders of this beautiful state! It's hard to pick just one area to visit, but if we had to choose one area, it would be the White Mountains region. This timeless vacation destination feature dramatically scenic rugged mountains with the apex being Mt. Washington with an elevation of 6,288 ft. In the White Mountains, the skiing is fabulous in the winter at myriad ski resorts, spring refreshing after a long, cold winter, summer just ideal with hiking, swimming and other recreational activities, and the fall flat-out stunning with its colorful fall foliage. Many famous, family-friendly resorts and attractions reside here -- the latter including Santa's Village, Storyland, The Flume, Clark's Trading Post and the Mt. Washington Auto Road.
New England cities must not be missed from the Old Port Exchange shops and restaurants and classic tree-lined brownstone building streets of Portland, Maine, to the world-class historical, educational and scenic environs of Boston, Mass. Providence, R.I., is a big city alternative to Boston, with its high-rises, academia and concentration of colonial homes, especially on Benefit Street. Let's not forget the charming Portsmouth, N.H., a small city with big seaside historical charm. There's nothing quite like strolling through Portsmouth on a hot, summer day with its eclectic mix of people and stores. It's a lively city, typical of the New England lifestyle, and one loaded with great restaurants. Burlington, Vt., is also quite a small city with its located on beautiful Lake Champlain, the presence of the University of Vermont and a fabulous downtown pedestrian-friendly Church St. marketplace with its incredibly appealing mix of shops, restaurants (many outdoor cafes), entertainment, street vendors and interesting architecture amongst the myriad buildings. Newport, R.I., is world-famous and quite appealing -- a tour of the mansions, a scenic drive along Ocean, a day at Easton's Beach, a walk along the Cliff Walk overlooking the ocean, and a highly-developed downtown that seems to joyfully go on forever with a fantastic mix of shops, galleries, boutiques, museums and restaurants. We could go on and on about New England, but you'll just have to read more on our web site!

Visiting New England.com. We, the people of this diverse region,
welcome you with open arms. Enjoy our New
England tourism and travel essays, restaurant
reviews and shopping.
VisitingNewEngland.com stresses the "who, where, what, when, why and how," foundation of journalism with an emphasis on the "why" and "how" -- the detailed catalysts to help you plan your New England travel. This approach, combined with a "living room conversation" type of storytelling gives the reader a translation of the great feeling of being in New England. Our experiences as lifelong New Englanders have created an understanding of life beyond the most heavily-marketed New England vacation spots. The hidden New England gems, and the nuances and the subtleties behind every mountain, body of water, village green and skyscraper in New England are what makes a visit to New England so special. Ultimately, this is not your basic cookie-cutter, assembly-line, vanilla New England travel and vacation planning information guide. Like New England, VisitingNewEngland.com offers great diversity, from a staff that knows you want the most out of your New England vacation.
We have something for everyone interested in learning more about New England. If you haven't noticed lately, some New England communities and publications have gone upscale with very little respect to the "plain folk." We will never head in this direction of thinking that we are above others, or that a vacation is meant as a portfolio, of sorts, to impress others. Vacation and travel, to us, is about enjoying life, as equals, with friends and family. While you will see some great upscale ideas on our site that we highly recommend, you will find a fair and balanced travel guide here that keeps all classes of people in mind. We appreciate the hard-working people who earn their money everyday and deserve to go on vacation, so you will never be excluded from the mission of this site. We are one of those families. Consider us your neighbor, the "local" who knows all the best places to visit in New England.
Knowledge is the most potent communicator. We have probably all benefited, for example, from the suggestions of a "local." Their responses might have brought you to the right diner, the quiet beach, or a hiking trail unknown to the marketing teams writing about New England from, as mentioned before, outside the region. VisitingNewEngland.com is like your online version of the "local" recommending the best places to visit.
We are honored you are here, and, therefore, want to honor you with the best New England travel and vacation planning information possible.
Ultimately, we offer what we feel is the best New England travel and vacation trip planning information available on the Web because we know, and appreciate, our beloved region. We prepare you by combining the well-known New England travel destinations such as York Beach, Maine, or Wolfeboro, N.H., to "hidden New England" such as Stonington, Conn., Bird Park in Walpole, Mass., or the traditional New England restaurant in the idyllic New England countryside, Salem Cross Inn (West Brookfield, Mass.). By the way, all the writing on VisitingNewEngland.com is solely based on the writer's New England travel experiences and, in no way, swayed by advertising!
importantly, we make your online
New England trip planning experience fun, because we know that you want
to have great times during your New England visit. We have wonderful
suggestions for the visiting the best cities, towns, villages and regions in New England, dining around New England ,
and a New England Hotels Guide that features hundreds of hotels
with descriptions, photographs and the chance to make online
reservations. We feel this feature is the perfect complement
to our travel articles -- find the New England destination that appeals to
you and then make reservations, all on one site!
