We're back! Call it an upgrade to 50,000 watts of new online content centering on New England travel and vacation ideas.
So, what's been going on the the VisitingNewEngland.com newsroom? Well, we're currently featuring a photo essay of Cohasset, Mass., one of New England's most beautiful coastal towns. With a pleasing harbor and a quaint village setting, it's hard to believe that peaceful Cohasset is a suburb of Boston.
Due to popular demand, we also added a "Vacations Package" element to VisitingNewEngland.com. Here, the potential to save money is enormous by combining hotel, air and car rental bookings into one package. The Vacations Packages is powered by Orbitz, one of the true leaders in the travel industry.
For horse lovers, we think you'll enjoy our article on a Lakeville, Mass., farm that showcases several Clydesdale horses. The horses are stunning up close, surely different than what you see in those beer commercials!
On the restaurant side, we recently visited the Tock of the Town restaurant in Medfield, Mass. This relatively new breakfast and lunch place goes beyond your typical townie restaurant. Pride of ownership and a chef who knows what he's doing elevate this small restaurant
to another level.
We had fun putting together "Remembering Locally-Owned Boston Area Stores From Yesteryear," that includes mentions of Zayre department store, Grover Cronin's in Waltham, Mass., Eric Fuch's railroad store in Boston and Samtron Electronics in Somerville. We encourage readers to post comments on their memories!
We have begun to include articles that address social issues around New England, including a homeless shelter in Boston that helps families overcome the cycle of poverty.
We are currently working on a spring travel newsletter. Please feel to sign up for free on any VisitingNewEngland.com page (sign-up form is located in the right column). Additionally, we are pleased with the growth of our Facebook and Twitter social media pages where we feature the latest updates and discussions centering around New England.
We are currently working on more articles, and will alert you here when news breaks. Welcome back to the 50,000 watt blowtorch for New England travel writing!
