Tell Us About Your Small New England Tricks
This week at Hack Your City, we’re hacking the country. Ahead of leaf-peeping season, let’s share our top tips for New England back roads and small towns. (We use a very generous New England definition.) Which villages are promising, which are best for yuppies, which are best for the more down-to-earth travelers, and which are already too touristy. ? Which highways and roads offer the best red and gold views? What’s the biggest roadside attraction?
Every Monday onHack Your City, we ask readers for the best tips about the city: driving tips, restaurant tips, entertainment, and any other tips for visitors and locals alike. Then, on Thursday, we present the best comments. We work in the USA and around the world.
What is underestimated? Which places deserve a few more discerning visitors? What are the best alternatives to tourist traps and mediocre city favorites? What do you like best about New England, the most imposed taste?
How should a visitor approach the region? What position should they take? What local traditions, behavior, and laws should they be aware of? How can they get along with people? What problems does the region deal with? Besides autumn, what good is a small New England town? What special events are worth attending?
How does it feel in the long run? Residents, what do you love and hate in this region? What advice do you have for other residents? What mistakes do new residents make?
Finally, how has the atmosphere of the New England countryside changed over the past few years? What should someone know if they haven’t returned for a long time?
You can post your tips in Portland, Providence and Montpellier, but don’t be afraid to share tips for the tiniest towns (and places between cities) anywhere in the East Leaf country.
Leave your tips in the comments below and we’ll highlight the best ones. (Make sure you add something new.) Then come back Thursday for a new post with highlights.
