New England seaside towns and the East Coast is the area where it all started – the colonies that were to become America. All last week I experienced the New England seaside and boating culture – from yachts to sailboats, to fishing vessels, small ships, and giant mansions. I grew up in the Midwest so life on the water, docks, and harbors is foreign to me. Spending the last week on the water and getting to be a part of the New England seaside culture was a bucket list item for sure. Think lobster bakes, thick accents, cobble-stone streets, and patriotism.
The experience reminded me that its fun to explore your own home country – we are lucky to have so many different cultures in the US!
As we celebrate July 4th and the founding of America this weekend (and my mother’s 80th birthday), I’m celebrating the beginning and heart of America, where our Founding Father’s first landed their ships and started their lives in this new country. The area has evolved into thriving and beautiful seaside and island communities – see for yourself!

How to Get to New England
To get to this many island and seaside towns in 6 days – I traveled by Blount Small Ship Adventures! They are a local Rhode Island family company who knows the area well because it’s their home. It was super to not have to worry about getting hotels at each of these towns as our room was always with us!
I was a guest of Blount Small Ship Adventures during this New England trip, however all opinions expressed here are my own.
