New England escorted tours

Discover the States of New England with Travelsphere


Maine

Nearly as big as the rest of the New England states put together, Maine is known for its long coastline, rocky islands and majestic mountains. One of the USA’s most popular national parks, Acadia covers 40,000 glorious acres on the Maine coast, 3.5 hours northeast of Portland. Follow the 27-mile Park Loop Road around Mount Desert Island, one of the largest islands on the USA’s East Coast.

New Hampshire

Known for its wilderness and wildlife, you may be lucky enough to come across a White-tailed deer or a black bear. Kancamagus Scenic Byway cuts through the heart of the White Mountain National Forest and you can take in the spectacular views of mountains, valleys, waterfalls and scenic rivers, and this stunning route is known for its fall foliage. New Hampshire also offers rustic covered bridges, waterfalls, and charming New England towns. Flume Gorge is a thrilling nature walk through a spectacular natural chasm. Along the walk you will discover covered bridges, amazing waterfalls, a scenic pool, and incredible mountain views.

Massachusetts

Martha's VineyardMassachusetts boasts idyllic and quaint seaside towns and just South of Cape Cod is Martha’s Vineyard. This destination attracts presidents and celebrities alike for ‘away from it all’ holidays. Only an hour from the mainland, the island has harbour towns and lighthouses, unspoiled beaches, shingled cottages, excellent biking, fine shops and restaurants. Boston is Massachusetts’ largest city and is also the capital, and this cosmopolitan city has everything from great museums to world-class dining.

Vermont

Vermont has picture-perfect scenery: fields dotted with white and brown cows, red barns and covered bridges, stone walls and country roads. Vermont is the United States’ No 1 producer of maple syrup and discovering more about this liquid gold is easy. Stop to talk, taste and buy; find out about the four different grades; buy maple syrup fudge and other goodies. Vermont’s sugar maple trees turn bright scarlet every fall. Covered bridges are romantic reminders of the past, when the roofs protected the woodwork, rather than pedestrians, from rain and snow. Amazingly, Vermont still has 106 covered bridges, spread throughout the state.

Connecticut

The most southern of the New England states, Connecticut offers a charming New England feel with a cosmopolitan style. The 1874 Mark Twain House in Hartford was the author’s residence for 17 years and where he penned some of his most famous works including “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’’. New Haven is home to Yale University, one of the most prestigious universities in the world and was founded in 1701.

Rhode Island

Rhode Island may be the smallest state in the USA, but ‘Little Rhody’ proves the saying that the best things come in small packages. Visitors return time and again to enjoy peaceful coastlines and countryside, as well as some of the USA’s best-preserved heritage and finest dining, and Newport, with its grand mansions. In the late 19th-century, Newport’s oceanfront mansions were merely summer ‘cottages’ for America’s wealthiest socialite families, each trying to outdo the other for opulence in architecture and interior design. Now, anyone can enter 11 of these historic properties that stand on 80 acres of gardens. The Breakers, the most imposing of them all, reflects the Vanderbilt family's social and financial pre-eminence in turn-of-the-century America.
