New England

New England

Autumn is an ideal time to visit New England, when the roads are paved with the fiery foliage of the season. But the picturesque towns and fascinating cities of the Northeast hold the perpetual charm of history year-round. Here, the country's past is preserved and given new life through the museums, monuments, historic walks and, of course, the abundant literature. Reading the works of the Founding Fathers (and mothers), early settlers and Transcendentalists like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau adds layers of significance to a New England experience.
