You never know what you’ll discover in America’s Northeast. Are you a fan of Downton Abbey? Indulge in turn-of-the-century glamor with a trip to The Breakers, Marble House, the Elms and Rosecliff, just a few of the luxurious “cottages” built by magnates of the Gilded Age in Newport, R.I. Read the guide for directions and suggestions for restaurants and hotels, too.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, you’ll also find many wonderful national and state parks, such as Allaire State Park, just 60 miles from NYC in New Jersey, where you’ll be able to enjoy hiking, biking and horseback riding, hunting, fishing, canoeing and camping. And while you can print out your free guide, you’ll also want to take advantage of the included links to each attraction’s webpage, booking options for camping or hotels, and options for buying tickets.

Because this guide comes from Your AAA, nothing is left to chance. You get everything you need to plan ahead, ensuring a trouble-free road trip. (Well, OK, we can’t prevent the occasional flat tire … but we can fix it for you – remember, this is Your AAA! Who else would you trust to help plan your road trip?)

For the kids, you’ll find suggestions that run from Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, to Sesame Place in Pennsylvania, to the U.S. Navy’s Submarine Force Museum in Connecticut, and even the Museum of Firefighting in New York’s Hudson Valley.

And what kid doesn’t love the beach? We’ve got ‘em, from Connecticut to New Hampshire. There are also romantic getaways for couples, such as the Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park in Oyster Bay on Long Island, where you can enjoy Music in the Garden, under the stars, or the Renault Winery in New Jersey, which features tours, wine-tasting, a championship golf course and Tuscan-themed hotel.

In short, you simply can’t pack more information than this into a travel guide. And after all, the price is perfect – $0!

More fun places to visit in the Northeast than almost anywhere else

Since there are so many different great places to visit in the northeast U.S., we know it can be confusing to sort through all the options. For each of the 202 road trips highlighted in this guide, there are many attractions! For instance, just 124 miles from NYC is Hartford, CT, and we deliver details on three amazing experiences: The Mark Twain House, the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center and the Wadsworth Athenaeum, America’s oldest public art museum. Wherever you depart from, that makes Hartford more than just a day trip!

That’s why it’s so valuable to also have hotel and dining information. And in fact, you can even make such a destination your home base for an entire vacation, using the guide to discover even more adventures nearby!

And we describe all the different things you can do at each fun place to visit in New England. For example, did you know that the Cape Cod National Seashore is much more than just 40 miles of beach? You’ll learn from the guide that you can also hike, paddle and bike trails among picturesque bogs, marshes, ponds and uplands, and even tour the Cape’s oldest lighthouse, the Highland Light.

Or perhaps you’ve already driven north from NYC to visit the famous home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. But you may not know about the delightful Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in nearby Red Hook. If not, you’re in for a treat: As the guide explains, you and your family can enjoy the beauty of New York’s historic Hudson Valley from the air in a classic 1929 New Standard cockpit biplane; admire dozens of antique airplanes, and even watch a World War I dogfight demonstration.

Discover all of this in our FREE guide, Fun Places to Visit in the Northeast, created just for travelers like you who want to see and experience it all!

So I hope you’ll download the guide right now. It’s never the wrong time to plan a day trip, a weekend getaway or a week’s vacation somewhere in the glorious northeast U.S.
