Favorites from New England

Favorites from New England

New England covers the northeastern corner of the United States and is known for it's colonial history, delicious seafood, and fall colors. The states in this region are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  While there are a number of great places to visit, I narrowed my favorites down to four which are listed below. I've also included links to my photo albums for each New England state.

Acadia National Park, Maine

Ocean Path Trail

Acadia National Park is located on Mount Desert Island off of the Maine Coast. It is the oldest and one of the few National Parks located east of the Mississippi River. Highlights of the park include Cadillac Mountain, multiple lakes and a beautiful shoreline.

Boston, Massachusetts

Old State House

The scene of many important events of the Revolutionary War, Boston has a rich history which has been well preserved. The Freedom Trail which connects a number of prominent sights, such as the Old State House (pictured above), is a must see. Boston is also home to a diversity of neighborhoods which make it a fun city to explore.

Hartford, Connecticut

Connecticut State Capitol

Hartford is the Capital of Connecticut and home to possibly my favorite State Capitol Building (pictured above). Other worthwhile attractions include historic buildings, museums, parks, and public spaces.

Portland, Maine

Downtown Portland

Portland is a vibrant waterfront city in Southern Maine. The city center is filled with many restaurants, bars, and points of interest. Portland Head Light, in neighboring Cape Elizabeth, is the oldest lighthouse in Maine and one of the most famous in the country.
