Review:

With enticing titles such as "Savoring the Shore in Connecticut," "Flying High in Quechee," "Indian Summer in Kennebunkport," and "Stirring Things up at Sturbridge," Away for the Weekend: New England provides a full year's worth of weekend opportunities.

Because she experienced the daunting feeling of wanting to "do it all" in New England without knowing where to start, author Eleanor Berman compiled this useful guide to help narrow down the choices: "The selections are admittedly personal, limited to locations and events I have visited and enjoyed, so not every single sightseeing attraction, lodging, or restaurant in each location is included. I've tried instead to pick only the best--places I've either been to myself or had recommended to me by local sources or frequent visitors." While she makes it clear that this is a guide devoted to destinations and events, Berman does list some of the special inns and dining places for each location covered. The seasonally inspired getaways are located in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

In addition to an alphabetical index, the helpful category listing includes entries under headings such as "beaches and parks," "children's activities," and "historic sites." Whether you have a weekend or longer, this book provides an excellent source of ideas for exploring New England. --Kathryn True

From the Inside Flap:

For a memorable weekend getaway any time of the year in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, did you know you can
-- Sign on for a cruise departing from the "Whale Watching Capital of the World"?
-- Watch the Highland games at a Fourth of July Scottish festival?
-- Celebrate autumn at the biggest fair in Maine?
-- Relive old-fashioned holiday traditions in a colonial town?

Or you can canoe down lazy rivers, go gallery-hopping in quaint college towns, or feast on succulent Shaker fare made from authentic recipes.

In this revised and updated edition, Eleanor Berman offers fifty-two itineraries for year-round "mini-vacations" that open up a world of dunes and marsh-side blueberry patches, of covered bridges, and of tiny towns all but untouched by time. Each itinerary includes detailed travel directions and a directory listing accommodations and restaurants in every price range. There are also four easy-to-follow maps, and activities especially appealing to children are noted.
