New England Travel
Customized Trip Design
I've been to every continent except Antarctica, but have written more than 250 articles and four guidebooks on New England, including Lonely Planet, Frommer's, Outside Magazine's Adventure Guide to New England, and New England Seacoast Adventures. This is also why New England Travel Planner chose us as their recommended travel agency for the region.
Here's what we can do in our backyard:
- Leaf Peepers Delight—We know the best scenic routes to avoid the crowds and the finest hikes to view the leaves from a bird’s eye view. We strive to make sure you're there just in time for prime fall foliage glory, whether you’re in the White Mountains of New Hampshire on taking a beautiful rural drive through Vermont.
- Keep it Active—Bike the rolling farmland of Vermont, paddle the legendary Allagash River with an exceptional Maine Guide, sea kayak to Massachusetts’ Crane Beach, or hike from inn-to-inn in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. As author of Outside Magazine’s Adventure Guide to New England, few know the backcountry better.
- New England Safari—Want to see the Big Five in New England—Moose, Whales, Puffins, Beavers, and Loons? We know the best local guides and outfitters in the northern tier of Maine who can make this wish a reality.
- Foodie Tour—From Vermont cheesemakers and brew-masters to lobster rolls from Cape Cod Massachusetts to Maine, we’ll help you taste the authentic New England cuisine and sip our distinctive libations. At night, we’ll make sure you visit our favorite James Beard Award-winning restaurants in Boston, Portsmouth, Portland, and the Maine coast.
- Art Lovers—Fishermen struggling against powerful nor’easters kept Winslow Homer busy on the boulder-strewn shores of Prouts Neck, Maine. Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, and other early American abstractionists joined John Marin to work at his summer cottage in Deer Isle. We’ll get you there and then onward to some of the top art museums in the country, from Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts to Mass MoCA and the Clark Art Institute in the Berkshires to the Farnsworth in Rockland, Maine.
