We've been all over New England, and I love it. Mass., Boston, Plymouth, Salem (especially if you're into history), All along the Maine coast for seafood (I can't eat it anymore since I developed a nasty allergy/sensitivity about five years back). We even lunched with the Senior Bushs and their bodyguards one afternoon, and if you can get up there, Bar Harbor was a great place. We also drove Moose Alley twice, but didn't see a real moose. One of the nicest "rides" we ever took was through New Hampshire (White Mountains) and Vermont (Green Mountains) on a "back road". Beautiful scenery, lots of antique-y places and I'm sure you'd fine a few cool yarn shops. There's a few outlet malls up that way too. Go, go, go! It's a wonderful place to visit and I'd love to live there (not, however, in January or February. LOL!!
