Guide to Luxury Holidays in New England

Whether you want to hike the final stretches of the Appalachian Trail, sunbathe on the Atlantic coast, or road trip through a maple-strewn countryside, there’s plenty to do in New England. Snuggle up next to a fire in a lakeside log cabin in New Hampshire, dine on fresh-caught lobster in Maine, or go whale watching in Massachusetts. However you spend your days, you’ll be amazed by all this small region has to offer. Boston is New England’s cultural hub: here you can attend shows by the world-renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra, and visit the renowned Museum of Fine Arts. You can also get to grips with the region's history by walking The Freedom Trail, which will take you past sixteen historically significant sites ranging from USA’s fight for independence to its first public school. While you're in Boston, check out the Red Sox play a game of baseball at Fenway Park. Head north and you’ll reach New Hampshire – a land of crashing Atlantic waves, charming resorts, and the epic White Mountains. Kayak on hidden coves in the Lakes Region, hike to the top of Mount Washington, and explore historical villages like Portsmouth, with its small-town vibe and seafront location. In Maine, you'll find the rugged Acadia National Park, and the delightful seaside towns of Boothbay Harbor and Kennebunkport.

New England has four distinct seasons, making it a great place to visit no matter what time of year it is. In winter, you can expect snowy days and low temperatures perfect for snowshoeing, cross-country or downhill skiing, as well as ice skating, and tobogganing. In summer, you can expect sunshine and high temperatures of 30°C. Ideal for swimming, hiking, and kayaking. New England is also known for its stunning autumn foliage as the forests are alive with fiery colours, and is a popular time of year to visit.
British citizens don’t require a visa to enter the USA but you will need to apply for an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) to enter the country. Find out more information and general travel advice at GOV.UK.
New England food is all about locally-sourced ingredients. You can dine on the freshest seafood including daily catches of lobster, mussels, and scallops, while the nearby rivers also produce some amazing salmon. You can also try local game like venison or moose. Finish it off with classic desserts like Black-Bottom creme brulee or whoopie pies. New England has some fantastic vineyards, growing white wine and sparkling varieties. Sample ice wine, a dessert wine made from grapes that have frozen on the vine. There are also some excellent microbreweries here.
