Maine to New York
Although not the longest of trips, this road trip takes you through the heart of the northeast coast of America.
In Maine, make sure to try the famous lobster, caught fresh out the Atlantic Ocean and onto the plate in a matter of hours.
As one descends south towards New York, you will encounter New Hampshire. The “Granite State” has some of the largest ski mountains on the East Coast. In Autumn, New Hampshire plays host to its own version of the Highland Games. A very liberal state, New Hampshire was the first in the U.S. to recognise same-sex unions.
Continuing into Massachusetts, you arrive at the uber-cool Boston. A city rich in culture with a strong Irish influence, many call it the “Athens of America” as it has the two best universities in the world: the prestigious Harvard as well as the cutting edge Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
A city interested in architecture, Boston has some of the most breath taking buildings in America, such as the stunning ICA building. The vibrancy of Boston and the hospitality of its civilians make this city one of the best in America.
This leads us on to the greatest city in the world, New York. Like Boston, it is steeped in culture and its inhabitants are famous for their hospitality. Broadway is the ultimate experience for any theatre fan, while there is an abundance of famous shops. The skyline in the city is breathtaking and Central Park is simply stunning.
Sport plays a huge role in the city; it recently held the the US Open at the Rod Laver Stadium, which saw the fantastic return of Rafael Nadal, who won the event despite being something of an outsider in the betfair odds.
The city is big enough to have two major NFL teams, two basketball teams, and baseball giants, the New York Yankees. The city as a whole is a melting pot of culture, sport, and music that ultimately leads to an unforgettable experience.
