About New England With Love

Do you love New England? Well, you’ve come to the right place, cause so do we! 

This site was designed to celebrate that love of New England, and to be a leading resource for New England travel. Our hope is that this site grows to become an incomparable guide to all the best things to see, do, and enjoy in the beautiful region of New England. PS: We’ve made it to this list of the top 40 New England blogs. Woohoo!

This site is owned and operated by me, Amy Hartle. I’ve been a full-time blogger for more than a decade, and New England With Love is my opportunity to share all of my favorite New England destinations and activities. 

I absolutely love New England, although—I admit—I’m not a native. I grew up in Florida and moved with my family to Vermont in the early 2000s after a magical vacation. All it took was one winter escape to Stowe, and my mom put the house for sale the second we got home. 

Since then, I’ve traveled throughout New England as well as lived in different parts of the region over the years, in between my international adventures. I attended college in New Hampshire (go Plymouth State!) and spent a lot of time exploring the nearby White Mountains. I’ve also spent a great deal of time enjoying my favorite New England city: Burlington, VT.

That move way back in 2001 absolutely changed my whole life, and turned me into a lover of New England, forever.

Now in 2023, although my life has taken me south and I no longer live in New England, I still make the journey north several times per year to continue exploring what I believe is one of the best parts of the United States. 

So this site is my love letter to New England.

To New England–and from New England–with love.
