Travel in New England to the blue ocean depths, to the summit of green mountains, on sparkling lakes and through world famous cities -- there is no better place on earth than our rock-filled region.

No matter where we eventually live in the world, New England never lets us go.
“New England has a harsh climate, a barren soil, a rough and stormy coast, and yet we love it, even with a love passing that of dwellers in more favored regions.” Henry Cabot Lodge
Realizing that many of you visiting New England may want to make a few more stops than southern Maine, I'm compiling a list of the best New England travel guides that I've come across.
