North East and Mid West — Introduction
A trip to the North East of the US is more than just a holiday – it’s a chance to experience its wonderful lifestyle. Here in these smaller states, many of which hug the eastern shores, leisure and lifestyle are all important – from sailing to enjoying fine food and wine.
In autumn the region comes alive in an irresistible display of colour. Renowned the world over, the Fall colours touch on many North Eastern states such as Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts embracing them in a coat of rich browns, russet reds, burnt oranges and golds.
Throughout this part of the US there are countless places to sample the millionaire life. From The Hamptons to Martha’s Vineyard and the grand summer houses of families like the Astors and Vanderbilts in Newport, Rhode Island.
The North Eastern states are home to some of the most exciting cities in the US with the incredible New York and Boston rightly drawing visitors with their brashness and joie de vivre.
The region’s party town is Atlantic City – the east coast’s answer to Las Vegas. But for a more relaxed break explore the ethereal Lake Placid and Maryland’s Easton where artists paint the seductive scenery in the ‘plein air’.
