The northeastern United States is filled with history. This is where our forefathers fought for their independence, first throwing tea into Boston Harbor and finally signing the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. From Pennsylvania to Maine, there are large cities (including one that never sleeps), sleepy beaches, East Coast ski peaks, and much more in between.
Home to New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Providence, famous in search of arts, entertainment and culture have plenty of places in which to turn.
Those aforementioned cities have airports, with many direct flights from other regions of the country flying right into them.
The Poconos, Adirondacks, Catskills, Berkshire, White Mountains, Appalachian and many more hilly clusters are found across the northeast. Which makes for great hiking in the summer and fall, and ripe for skiing in the winter.
Home of the world-famous Jersey Shore, Hamptons and Cape Cod beaches, the entire eastern stretch of all northeastern states but Vermont touch upon the Atlantic. Not to mention the northern portions bordering on Great Lakes. Sand dunes, marshes, rocky shores and marinas are at every turn.
Sports fans will find an array of choices in the northeast, from professional football, basketball, soccer, baseball and more readily available at grandiose stadiums like Yankee Stadium and Meadowlands. Not to mention the world’s oldest ballpark, Fenway.
Where to go? Try where not to go across the northeast!
No need to drive in any of the big cities of the northeast, as all have excellent public transportation and are highly walkable. When you head further into states like Vermont, western Pennsylvania and New York, you’ll need a car.
