If you’re reading this, you’re already aware that New England is a great area to visit and live in. However, in case you needed some more reasons, here they are:
- Clam chowder is tomato-free, and Maine outlawed the use of tomatoes in chowder in 1939. We take our recipes seriously!
- Boston was home to the first subway system. The Boston area’s mass transit system, along with others in outlying areas, helps make it easier for people to get around without a car handy.
- The Hartford Courant, the oldest paper in the U.S. still in production, is published in Connecticut. This paper started a long tradition of newspapers that achieved wide circulation.
- Rhode Island is home to a grand total of 20% of the historic landmarks in the US. A vast number of landmarks in New England date back to or predate the American Revolution.
