Sail Cape Cod or Ski the Slopes of Vermont
There’s no shortage of exciting activities to consider when planning what to do in New England. From skiing, hiking, sailing and sightseeing, New England getaways are the perfect way to experience an active vacation any time of the year.
Composed of six states, New England encompasses the northeast corner of the United States and each state – Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine – offers visitors a unique adventure travel destination. Experience the wonder of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, ski the slopes of Stratton Mountain in Vermont or admire the beauty of the rugged coasts of Maine. Throughout New England you can get a taste of history in the quaint rural towns that date back to before the Revolutionary War and be sure to keep an eye out for one of the many historical covered bridges that dot the countryside.
The ideal New England vacation differs greatly based on the time of year you plan to visit. Plan your trip in the autumn to experience the beauty of the New England fall foliage, visit in the winter to ski in the colorfully named snow-covered wonderlands of the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, get back to nature in the spring on a hike to Royalston Falls or go sailing in the waters of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod in the summer. The region also offers a great opportunity for hiking and biking as well as a number of impressive lodging options to help you rest during your active vacation.
