Family New England

Any parents who have watched their delighted children splashing around on a British beach should seriously consider taking New England family holidays, because things will feel comfortingly familiar, and yet excitingly other.

Our North America experts are on hand to tailor-make perfect New England family holidays based around your family's exact requirements. In addition, you benefit from Original Travel's exclusive additional services, from fast-track check-in and security at the airport, and lounge access even if you're flying economy. On the ground in the US you can contact our clued-up local Concierge for restaurant recommendations and last-minute tweaks to the itinerary.

So, what to do and where to go on your New England family holiday? The obvious starting point, and one of the most family-friendly cities in the States, is Boston. Inspire the children to new intellectual heights with a visit to Harvard, see a game at the homes of the legendary Boston Red Sox or New England Patriots, or on the subject of patriots, teach them about the American War of Independence in one of the key locations in the war.

Then the best way to get around the region is by car, so we can arrange your ride for a New England family road trip, cruising along the coast and popping across to islands, staying in charming family-friendly accommodation en route. Then you can choose from a host of activities from cycling (one of the best routes is the old railway line of the Rail Trail in Cape Cod) and hiking (in Acadia National Park, for example) to kayaking and whale watching and sailing boat trips. It's all about outdoorsy adventures and breathing in fresh sea air, while refueling on delicious fresh seafood (don't forget the bibs when eating lobster, team!)
