While traveling New England and interacting with our friends, families and neighbors, and Twitter and Facebook fans, one of the main conversations of New England travel is “How can we save money?”

A great question in these economically-challenging times. As lifelong New Englanders — and those of an inquisitive, thrifty nature living in a high-cost-of-living area –we have decided here, at, to bring you our personal experiences on how to save money while traveling, and living, in our six-state region. In a nutshell, what we find and experience gets passed along to you, thus creating a one-stop environment here to save you money. Some “thrifty” topics focus on dining, lodging, day trips, holiday trip planning ideas, cheapest gas prices, festivals and fairs, museums, parks, beaches, tours, sporting events, biking and hiking, scenic drives, and low-cost travel attractions in Boston and at Cape Cod.

Recently, New England natives and local businesses have been contributing vacation and travel ideas to The Thrifty New England Traveler. We encourage you to help us build this valuable community by sharing your ideas of how to save money while traveling New England. Feel free to contact us anytime, and we’ll consider your budget-saving ideas in the six-state region of Connecticut, Maine Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
