New England Holidays

Discover where America began in New England – Explore the north east’s fascinating history, stunning white sand beaches, brilliant fall foliage, captivating cities, panoramic mountain views and scenic villages. White steepled churches, verdant village greens, clapboard Colonial-era houses perched iconically next to red barns; this is New England.

But while New England is so much more than this, the tradition is what we love about it. Explore the apple orchards and the colourful, leafy trails of New Hampshire in the autumn, tap the maple trees or go skiing in Vermont in the winter, smell the spring blossoms of Massachusetts in the spring, or go beach hopping along Rhode Island and Maine’s coasts in the summer.

Comprised of six very unique states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont — all easily reached through the gateway city of Boston – visiting this region has never been easier, whether you choose a motorhome, escorted tour, cruise or self drive holiday.

There is so much to do in New England that the first decision you will need to make is, when you want to go? As a year round destination you'll have to explore every season. From the most spectacular autumn colours of the fall foliage to the winter snow and the blossoming spring to exploring the sandy beaches.

  • Winter activities

    Skiing in New England is amazing. Not just because of the powdery snow, but also because of the easy access; most ski resorts are only two to four hours from Boston. There are more than 60 alpine skiing and snowboarding areas and resorts to choose from on your holiday in New England, with many more cross-country skiing areas if you don’t like the downhill variety. Some of the best skiing is in Vermont, New England’s winter playground. Twenty of New England’s resorts are located here, including the larger resorts of Sugarbush, Stratton, and Stowe.

  • Cities and Towns

    Hit the Freedom Trail in Boston and wander the red-brick paved walkways to see some of the USA’s most historic sites. We love hip and historic Boston and we think you will too. Then make your way toward the windswept clay cliffs and verdant greenery of postcard-perfect Martha’s Vineyard. Taste the salt on the mist on Massachusetts’ Cape Cod or travel to Arlington, Vermont to step into a real-life Norman Rockwell painting (in fact this is where the famous painter was from) or explore the traditional New England village of Mystic River.

  • Spectacular scenery

    Whether you prefer breathtaking coastal views, magical Acadian forests, rolling pastures or majestic snow tipped mountains, New England is a haven for those who love the great outdoors. Explore historic towns or romantic lodges in quaint communities dotted with picture-perfect clapboard houses. Watch leaves turn to golden browns and reds in autumn or discover lighthouses dotted on unspoilt shorelines.

  • Lighthouses

    You wouldn't be wrong imaging the entire coast of New England is dotted with lighthouses. In fact, the coastline is filled with 150 of them that will keep your holiday in New England filled with interesting discoveries. Each of these lighthouses has a different story to tell.

  • Vermont Pumpkins

    Cuisine

    You can't go to New England without sampling the delicious seafood or clam chowder. As the seasons change so does the cuisine, try pumpkin pie and apple cider in autumn, or a clambake on the beach during the summer. Explore the many of the wineries and microbreweries you'll find across New England.
