A New Celebration of Place
Thanks to everyone who
participated in this year's event and made it a tremendous
to Southern New England Discovery Tours, an event that has
grown from a statewide celebration to a Tri-State
exploration. We three geo-political entities (one of them,
after all is a Commonwealth) have a great deal in common.
Our history, geography and culture, for starters. After all
these years – centuries, really – we recognize our affinity,
and that we share a sense of place.

not too small. Matter of fact, it’s the perfect size for a
day’s travel. And it’s where great things happened – and
the footsteps of Freedom Fighters fell, the right of
religious conscience was born, and everywhere, burgeoning
industry thrust a young nation headlong into prosperity

villages by the sea occupies the citizenry. And a pursuit of
happiness makes for fascinating meanders throughout.
treasures in picturesque places. See that special point of
interest you’ve been meaning to check out for years. Set out
with us on a great adventure to bring our shared heritage
into the spotlight, to make the experience personal, and to
celebrate Southern New England – this terrific place.
