Mercifully small in the grand scheme of the United States, New England lets you cover a lot of ground. Most of our suggested routes for touring the region are based around getting behind the wheel. Our USA specialists have driven the length and breadth of this compact collection of states and can recommend the best itineraries depending on what you want to experience.

We recommend tracing New England’s jagged coastline, out of which Cape Cod extends like a flexed arm. Then move inland to explore more of New Hampshire’s southern lakes region, Maine’s forests where moose rule supreme, and Vermont’s white-clapboard villages.
