The oldest parts of the United States often contain the most magic. One could say that those who don’t think that themselves, just simply haven’t spent enough time in New England.

Rhode Island is obviously a small state, but it makes up for it with the perfect mix of class and character. While the whole state is teeming with both characteristics, there is no better example than the capital – Providence.
This serves as the perfect choice for those looking to spend time away from the typical images of coast lines and deep forests. In the city’s borders, there’s many options for museums and theaters making it the perfect city getaway.
The Mystic Seaport Museum is the perfect way to understand the larger culture of Mystic but also an even better way to satiate any curiosity you might have ever had about nautical history.

Some can’t decide between a quante small town community or that high energy ski trip. When in Stowe, you don’t have to choose either way. In addition to having both a wonderful historical downtown, there’s skiing to match it.
