And while it is a truly modern region, much
of New England defies the ravages of time, transporting travelers back
to an era of covered bridges and white-steepled churches, of maple trees
tapped for sap and horse-drawn sleighs, of wooded acres ablaze with autumn
color and an annual harvest that inspires gratitude for the abundance
of the land.
People from all across the world come
to New England in the Fall to view the spectacular canopy of color
that only this region can offer. A carefully timed cruise promises
breathtaking views painted with rich fall hues and an incredible lineup
Eastern Seaboard - Port City - Boston
Boston's North End. Narrow, winding streets and the smell of coffee in the air probably mean you're in the North End, Boston's oldest neighborhood and home to much of the city's Italian population. Faneuil Hall and the adjacent Quincy Market form one of the country's first mixed-use commercial developments.
When Oliver Wendell Holmes called Boston the 'hub of the universe,' he was thinking mainly of Beacon Hill. You can locate Beacon Hill easily by the gilt dome of the Massachusetts State House and the undulating rows of brick houses that surround it. The Charleston neighborhood is a living museum of Boston's shipbuilding past. At the river's edge is the oldest commissioned ship in the US Navy, the USS Constitution.
Boston is a walker's town, and there are several historical and nature walks in the area. Bicycling on the Charles River Esplanade is a cardio-intensive way to see the skyline. The best beaches are along Cape Cod. Old Silver Beach is Falmouth's most popular strand, but if you want to escape the crowds you can take a 2 hour water taxi ride from Provincetown out to Long Point Beach. Coast Guard Beach, on the Atlantic shore near Eastham, is a long strand backed by tall, undulating dune grasses. The South Cape Beach State Park in East Falmouth has nature trails and a long sandy beach.
North Eastern Seaboard - Port City - Provincetown
Provincetown, Massachusetts, is a lively seashore summer resort and art colony on the tip of Cape Cod. Take an unhurried stroll along the narrow streets while enjoying the clustered homes, many of which date back to the 1700s. There is something for everyonemuseums, historic sites, and art galleries to visit, beaches for swimming, and an endless variety of seafood in the local restaurants.
The Portuguese, who from their earliest history voyaged to the ends of the known world to fish, eventually settled in Provincetown. They are hard working, fun-loving adventurous people known for their culinary, navigational, musical and literary skills.
Presidents, entertainers, authors and artists have made Martha's Vineyard a favorite summertime destination for years. Now it's your turn to enjoy the quaint architecture, pleasant weather, beautiful beaches, colorful scenery, well preserved mansions and gingerbread cottages. "The Vineyard" is the East Coast's largest warm water resort island and summertime attraction.
North Eastern Seaboard- Port City - Newport
While Newport was a summer playground for America's elite families at the turn of the century, Christmas time is perhaps one of the best times of year to visit this seaside town today. Founded in 1971, Christmas in Newport began as a two-week festival that celebrated the noncommercial traditions of the holiday season. Now in its 29th year, the annual program boasts multiple activities for nearly each day of the December calendar.
