With only a weekend to spend, curious travelers in New England in search of stimulating, relaxing getaways often lack the time and energy to plan them. Veteran travel writer Betsy Wittemann has done the work for them by creating this series of weekend getaways that go beyond the usual recommendations of things to see and places to stay and eat.
