New England bands culture with devotion. Where the four seasons are to be experienced and enjoyed, not endured. -M. Taggart
Kennebunkport, Maine. Bush Senior’s estate overlooks the ocean. Kennebunkport is a beautiful sea side town. Visit the shops or brew pubs and enjoy the views.
Watch Hill, Westerly RI. Fog helps to set the mood. The child will not see whom he is waiting for again.
Shapleigh, Maine. A man climbs a snow bank during a snowstorm (2014). The region had been hit by several snow storms. People in Maine are known for enjoying all four seasons. Apparently night time snow bank climbing counts.
Brimfield, MA. The 2011 tornado badly damaged this New England town. Visit Brimfield’s massive antique show. You can view the tornado damage and help the town by having lunch or staying the night. Here’s where to find info http://www.brimfieldshow.com
Amherst, MA. If you enjoy poetry, visit the Emily Dickinson house then visit downtown Amherst. It’s not a large town, but it’s just big enough to make an afternoon out of it. And if you’re researching colleges, there are five within minutes of one another.
Maple syrup lines, New Hampshire. (source: Flickr user glass_house)
Jonathan Edwards Winery. North Stonington, CT. Take a drive into the hills of Connecticut, you won’t be disappointed.
Perry Long’s Lobster Shack, Surry, Maine. Find more info here http://www.mainetravelmaven.com/my-favorite-maine-lobster-shacks/
Block Island, RI. Go here. Just, GO, Here. Take the quick ferry ride and find this beach.
New England consists of six states. Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Click the link below if you’d like to read a short story which takes place in the valley-farmlands of Western MA.
Cheers! -M. Taggart

I love New England!
It’s an incredible place to adventure in. Be sure to go North!
This is a wonderful post, and all the pictures are lovely, but I figured you would include some pictures of the beautiful New England fall foliage! It’s so beautiful.
Thanks Andrew. I’ll end up putting together a post on the colors of Fall, but I’d like to wait until I have the pictures taken. It’s not as fun for me when I need to use google images. Most (not all) of the pictures I use are taken by myself or my wife. Thanks for the comment, cheers!
