For an unforgettable fly drive American holiday, explore the scenic roads and rustic beauty of New England. It’s the closest place in the states that you can get to from the UK, making it an excellent choice for those with limited time or simply an “I can’t wait!” attitude.
From Boston, driving north and west into New Hampshire and Vermont is a road tripper’s delight. Plan your trip during the mid autumn months when fall foliage is at its peak to capture New England at its finest. Crisp country air and tumbling fall sunlight play among the forests, along the rivers and through the mountain peaks and valleys to create picturesque scenes that can only be described as breathtaking. The annual apple harvest around the area cues festivals throughout the quaint rural towns, inviting locals and tourists alike to literally enjoy the fruits of local labour. Outlet shopping in New Hampshire and mountain hikes in both states make for excellent day activities, and scenic pull-offs are plentiful throught the drive and perfect for those looking just to stretch their legs and take in the sights.
For those preferring a summer escape, it is an easy ride from New York City up the pebbly coast of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine, with miles of beaches and countless seaside eateries to enjoy the pride of the region; fresh, local seafood. Try oysters in Rhode Island, but be sure to save some appetite for lobster in Maine; it’s the sea delicacy that made this northern state famous. Driving south to north between these two states, don’t forget to stop along the way. Newport and Cape Cod are two of the greatest beach towns on the whole of the east coast of the USA, boasting sandy beaches, rock jettees and historic lighthouses for all to enjoy. A short ferry ride will take you to Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket, where you can spend the day seeing how the other half lives. Summer cottages belonging to posh New Englanders from the mainland dot the island and tempt the imagination.
Whichever area you would like to travel to whether it be a Fly Drive California holiday or Fly Drive Las Vegas holiday, it is sure to be a cultivating experience that oozes personality and depth. What would it be like to summer here? Pure Bliss.
