A lot of people visit New England every year as its a very popular tourist destination however the fact is that there are a lot of things that people just don't understand before they come here.
1. The Weather
Here in New England we have a saying, "You don't like the weather, wait five minutes and it'll change." The thing about New England Weather is that it's a toss up what you'll get. It could forecast clear and sunny skies all week with 60 degree weather in February and you could get two days of rain, one day of snow, and cloudy skies all week with temperatures never reaching above 45. It might rain off and on for two whole weeks. in the middle of July. On top of that our weather is often really unpleasant. I remember this winter, I got up at eight o'clock in the morning. My dad was in the kitchen on his laptop, I asked him what temp it is. It was NEGATIVE SIX DEGREES my reaction could be summed up by
The high for that day was 8 degrees. The other day it was a hundred degrees with an incredibly high humidity and I was working the fields at my work.
2. The Tourist Traps
New England is FILLED with Tourist Traps and one of the biggest is world famous for its Witch Trials by which I mean Salem Massachusetts, now one of my ancestors was an accused witch and having been to Salem, its a complete fucking tourist trap. The sad thing is that THERE IS A LOT OF HISTORY IN SALEM but they completely ignore it all in favor of the Witch trials which actually didn't happen in modern day Salem. Salem used to be about 30 percent of the state now its just a coastal town. The Witch Trials happened in what is modern day Beverly. What is now Salem actually played an important role in the Revolution as a way for the American forces to get supplies as the British had blockaded Boston.
3. Boston is a clusterfuck
That picture perfectly summarizes what kind of place Boston is. The problem with Boston is that it the roads are based on old cattle paths and because of that the roads are incredibly hard to navigate. Its just so fucking easy to get lost in Boston that its not even fucking funny.
4. That Logan is either the airport for the Ill-Informed or those that couldn't find a flight at Manchester
Let me put this simply. Boston Logan Airport is a complete and utter cluster-fuck. The lines are longer, the traffic is worse and because it sees so much traffic there is just so much waiting and Manchester is more expensive. My family never flies out of Logan if we can get a flight out Manchester New Hampshire. Manchester is a better first choice, Logan is a second choice.
5. Boston is not the only thing to see.
There are some very beautiful places in New England, from the sandy beaches to the Dark woods of Maine where you the locals will tell you they still see Mountain Lions fairly often and my relatives can confirm this. There are some absolutely beautiful places and Boston is really only one tiny piece of it.
