Cape Cod, the Berkshires, the Litchfield Hills, Nantucket, Martha's winery, Boston, Quabbin Reservoir and alongside the Housatonic – those are only a number of the areas lined during this specified consultant, the single publication that draws jointly all of the actions within the quarter. Take to the paths in kingdom forests, splash round in a rowboat on a quiet inland lake, or get critical with the superior whitewater rafting possibilities in the rustic. An further size in those states is the feel of Colonial and innovative historical past, and Beth Dugger covers all of it. Maps, images, index.
