YOUR GUIDE TO NEW ENGLAND GETAWAYS, VACATIONS, REAL ESTATE AND HISTORY
CHOOSING THE BEST TYPE OF PLACE TO STAY FOR YOUR NEW ENGLAND GETAWAYS
Everybody has different tastes and things or conditions that make them happy. While a B&B may be ideal for romantic New England getaways, it may not be for the "nuclear family,"Mom, Dad, 2.3 children and Bubba, your Chihuahua. A hotel, motel, large inn, camp ground or rented house may be far more suitable and compliant with your budget. Given today's gas prices, most of your budget will go to that (see story below).
I'm not saying there aren't B&B Inns out there who have no objections to kids and the dog, but the majority don't and many have stringent rules. One B&B inn in Vermont insists that guests not sit on the bed. Since most people sit before they lie down, I guess at this inn, you have to dive into bed. But you need to take into consideration not just where you want to go, what amenities (besides the chocolate on the pillow are available and what points of interest might be nearby).
It takes some research to make your decision about your destination for New England getaways.

You may be pleasantly surprised at how little it can cost depending on what's perfect for you.
FORT HILL FARMS ADVERTISEMENT
Agriculture is a classroom! Fort Hill Farms and The Farmer's Cow can't miss an opportunity to educate consumers about farming, farmers, and our life and world, so we put it into an 8-acre maze! If the teacher were a cow, what would she teach you in school? It's all in the maze, and you will have an a-maze-ingly awesome time learning! If you have kids under 8, we recommend the Mini-Moo-Maze, which is a half-hour Labyrinth, and $7 apiece. The bigger maze is 1 1/2 hours, $12 for adults and $10 for all kids under 12.
Our maze is AGricultural, not AGgravating! For one, you don't go into life thinking "how do I get out?" so you don't go into our maze thinking how to get out; you go in thinking, "This journey is going to be awesome, and I can't wait to find the next desk which will have the answer for my gamesheet.
Life is a journey---and a Puzzle! So is the maze! You are never lost for more than 5 minutes at a time, you always have markers along your way, kind of like life! :)
Call 860-923-3439 for more info and group rates. Oh! By the way, we are not a haunted maze! We are absolutely open at Halloween, but don't come thinking that anyone will be jumping out at you, that just ruins our maze, and ruins it for everyone who wants to enjoy the journey. We open in August so that you will realize we are so much more than a holiday in October.
It is the distinctiveness of the cultural imperatives that brings us proudly together as New Englanders, and yet we cling steadfastly to the substance and faith of our individual state's roots, especially at this time of year when New England fall foliage is in bloom.
WHY A NEW ENGLAND GETAWAY OR NEW ENGLAND VACATION?
People travel here for New England getaways on weekends or New England vacations to break free from the ever-constricting bands of stress made evermore taught daily. They come to revel in unique tourism, history, folklore and lifestyles that make New England distinct from all other regions of the land. They come for golf, the perfume of a plush and flowery spring, boating, hiking, biking, fishing, lush views, mountains beckoning to be climbed and the alpine slides at ski areas that entertain in summer while awaiting winter's snows. They come for the staggering colors Nature paints her trees in the fall, foliage envied worldwide, and in winter, they come for the skiing.
They come also for the mystical ambience, to visit museums, tour one or all six states, to see famous landmarks and objects of legend. They come to see the nation's cradle, where its history was born and to antique auto shows, craft fairs, farmers' markets, antique shops, and on and on.
They come to take the kids to such agritourism sites as Fort Hill Farms (left) where they can learn about the environment and farming in the corn maze, go to water parks or children's museums, or just to relax by treating themselves to New England getaways on weekends at a quaint B&B, a lovely hotel or the ultimate—a week's New England vacation at a spa and resort where the steely bands of stress are broken and those who come here are put back in touch with the essence of who they really are.
New England is a region that has cornucopias of things to do and see for every member of the family, including New England fall foliage spots such as Fort Hill Farms in Connecticut.
