header_leftThe weather is warm and the outdoors is calling your name.  But, maybe a trip to the tropics just isn’t in the stars (or your wallet) this year.  Luckily there are many a joyful diversion right here in New England, just a tank of gas away.  And even if you grew up in this area, as I did, know that you have likely missed many great destinations, some you have heard of and never made the trip and some hidden gems you never even knew were there.

Local station WROR is helping you to get acquainted with all that New England has at its fingertips, and share some special local stimulus packages deals to coerce you into enjoying yourself this summer! Head down to Boston’s City Hall Plaza this Saturday, June 6th for the first ever See New England Festival from 10AM – 5PM. Best of all, it’s FREE.

Take the Blue or Green Line to Government Center to see what summer adventures you can find. WROR’s morning show hosts Loren & Wally will broadcast live from 10am – noon, followed by live performances by Girl Authority, Booty Vortex, Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra and the Johnny Ray Band.

Area attractions participating include The Boston Red Sox, local harbor cruise and whale watching vessels, choose your own reality real world adventure game Tomb, Santa’s Village, Six Flags New England, Canobie Lake Park, and the quintessential New England magazine, Yankee Magazine, a long provider of guides to the area.

Retailers and dining destinations include First Act Guitars, Dunkin Donuts, Yankee Candle Village, Boston Sports Company, Massachusetts Lobstersmen’s Association, Cape Cod Potato Chips, Johnsonville Brats and b.good.

And for places to stay, stop by and visit Maine Beaches, the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism and Stowe Vermont.

Best bets are the fresh pineapple on a stick that Wilson Farms usually sells for $1 each at festivals, anything Dunkin Donuts has to sample and discounted passes from Six Flags or Canobie Lake Park.
