New England, on American's East Coast has been called
America's attic, for it was here that the first
cries of the American revolution were heard. This
is the place where the fall turns the landscape into
a giant patchwork quilt.
Here the spirit of the early settlers and old colonial
America still reigns. Picturesque villages, lakes,
granite mountains, rocky coastlines with a rich wealth
of history characterise New England past and present.
It is a quasi Europe set in the very un-European continent
of the USA. Cosmopolitan Connecticut, nature
loving Vermont, the epic White Mountain Forest
of New Hampshire, forests and beaches of Maine,
the tiny but beautiful Rhode Island and the
tourism capital of Massachusetts make for a
varied trip packed into a small area. If you want
to see the side of the USA that packs a punch of beauty,
history, and old romantic America, then New England
is the region to visit.
