Take a Hike!
Tackle a challenging peak like Mt. Kathadin in Maine or Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, or try a more laid-back trail at Mt. Battie in Maine, Mt. Willard in New Hampshire, or Mt. Olga in Vermont.
Eat Blueberry Pancakes with Maple Syrup
A culinary match made in heaven – try them at your favorite diner or make a tall stack of them yourself.
Visit a Covered Bridge
Nothing spells New England romance like a covered bridge. Seriously. And in the states of New Hampshire and Vermont, there are more of these bridges than anywhere else in the world.
Try to Spot a Moose in the Wild
Sure, you might have to wait quietly in the woods for hours...but it’s worth it to catch a glimpse of one of these iconic, antlered beasts that can measure over 2 meters tall, and weigh up to 700kg.
Try a Lobster Roll
Nothing goes better with a picnic or day at the beach than one of these sandwiches filled with fresh lobster meat. It's a true Maine delicacy!
Go to a Yard Sale
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure...” From tennis rackets to antiques, rummage, trade and barter your way to a great deal at one of these traditional New England events.
Look to the Lakes
New England has an abundance of beautiful lakes, perfect for swimming, fishing, or canoeing. A few of the most popular are Moosehead in Maine, Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, and Champlain in Vermont.
The flavor of Maine’s official state drink has been described as strong, bitter, odd, and delicious. The consensus: it’s different. You be the judge.
Find a Fair or Festival
There are plenty to choose from throughout the spring and summer! While at one of these events, be sure to check out livestock competitions, local foods, and amusement rides and games.
Go Whitewater Rafting
Grab some friends, jump in a raft, and hang on! There are countless rafting companies throughout New England that will outfit and guide you through the rapids.
