New England is made up of six states in the northeast of the USA: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
In the North Eastern region the climate is similar to the UK, however the summers tend to be a little warmer and you should also allow for rapidly changing conditions in the mountain regions. In the spring and winter it is very common to see snow.

New England is famous for its glorious fall foliage – best from mid-September until November – as billions of leaves change from green to a kaleidoscope of colours. The air is crisp and cool, and farm stands are piled high with crunchy apples and orange pumpkins.
New England has so many diverse and changing landscapes to choose from all across the six states. Whether you prefer the coast, the mountains, adventure or relaxation, New England has something for every kind of person to enjoy.
New York City is obviously the huge draw, but there are also some other great cities in the New England area such as New England’s gateway city, Boston along with lesser known cities such as Portland, New Haven, Portsmouth, Providence and more.
Beaches, fishing harbours, artists’ colonies, world class museums, national parks New England’s coasts offer a bit of everything from history to pure beauty and some places like Martha’s Vineyard in Cape Cod offer everything all on one island!
