The US states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Maine and New Hampshire make up New England. Holidays to New England are popular in autumn when the forests across the state come alive with a blaze of colour.
Focused on romantic getaways and family holidays, New England holidays have something for everyone from deserted and wild beaches and amazing seafood of the seaside towns, to the mountains of the Berkshires and the forests of Vermont.
Things to do in New England
Popular in winter for its skiing and snow sports, holidays to New England are possible all year round. In summer, holidays in New England cannot help but appreciate the impressive outdoors lifestyle that is so enjoyed here. The collective states really come into their own in autumn, when many visitors or ‘leaf-peepers’ come to enjoy the beautiful golden and burning reds that the foliage turns to.
When to go to New England
Climates can vary between the states but in general average highs of around 29°C in July and lows of -9°C in January. As you might expect, Vermont and some of the White Mountains region sees heavier snowfall than the coastal regions.
