For a memorable weekend getaway any time of the year in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, did you know you can
-- Sign on for a cruise departing from the "Whale Watching Capital of the World"?
-- Watch the Highland games at a Fourth of July Scottish festival?
-- Celebrate autumn at the biggest fair in Maine?
-- Relive old-fashioned holiday traditions in a colonial town?
Or you can canoe down lazy rivers, go gallery-hopping in quaint college towns, or feast on succulent Shaker fare made from authentic recipes.
In this revised and updated edition, Eleanor Berman offers fifty-two itineraries for year-round "mini-vacations" that open up a world of dunes and marsh-side blueberry patches, of covered bridges, and of tiny towns all but untouched by time. Each itinerary includes detailed travel directions and a directory listing accommodations and restaurants in every price range. There are also four easy-to-follow maps, and activities especially appealing to children are noted.
