Given the importance New England plays in the history of the United States – and this being the week that we Americans celebrate our nation’s past – we thought we’d do a roundup of posts that highlight the best that New England has to offer!
As Jess and I are both proud New Englanders, we’ve done our fair share of NE posts. From tours of our hometowns to shimmering white beaches to historical hotspots, we have a little something for everyone.
