Read on for a few New England vacation ideas and reach out if you’re ready to hit the road!
A visit to Vacationland: Kennebunkport, Maine
I’ve been coming to Maine every summer for almost 20 years. And three years ago, I bought a vacation home in The Kennebunks. This little corner of “Vacationland” is my true happy place. In a crazy coincidence, CIRE COO, Amy Brueckner, has a house around the corner from mine, so a Kennebunkport office was meant to be! Read on for some of the best things to do in Kennebunkport (according to us, at least). Summertime in Maine… Can you hear that? The lobster rolls are calling!
Blue skies & green mountains: Stowe, Vermont
Less than a four-hour drive from the beaches of Kennebunkport is another charming New England town, Stowe, Vermont. When you hear the name, you may immediately think of a winter vacation in Vermont – white fluffy snow, swooshing down the slopes, and an après-ski hot toddy – but don’t discount summertime in Stowe! It’s truly glorious as our contributing writer, Jamie Edwards, shares in her latest dispatch from the Green Mountain State.
Wicked fun town: Boston, Massachusetts
Boston is a great city to explore and a great jumping off point for your New England road trip. One of my favorite Bostonians is Suzanne Goldberg (pictured on Salisbury Beach, with me and her other best friend, Olive). Suzanne is a small business owner (like me) and runs a fantastic hotel rep firm, The Art of Hospitality. Her luxury hotel collection is all boutique, all amazing, and all over the world. We interviewed Suzanne recently for our “8 Questions” series and she shared a new (fabulous) hotel in Beacon Hill, as well of some of her favorite things about her hometown, Andover, which is just outside of Boston.
