Example text

From the 17th century, boatbuilders sprung up in one town after another to support the shipping and fishing trades. Today, the boatyards are far fewer than in historical times, but shipping and especially fishing remain important to the economy on the coast and beyond. It’s not all work and no play—some of the classic wooden sailboats now serve cruise goers, and some fishermen have traded in their lobster boats for whale-watching vessels. The coast’s lighthouses are another New England staple; more than 60 of these beacons of light line Maine’s jagged coast like sentinels along the shore.

From Provincetown (where the Mayflower actually first landed) to Plymouth and throughout Cape Cod, these early New England settlers left an indelible mark on the region. Their contemporaries, the Puritans, founded the city of Boston. Both groups, seeking religious freedom, planted the seeds for the founding of the United States. What to See: In Plymouth (south of Boston) you can visit Plimoth Plantation, Mayflower II, the National Monument to the Forefathers, and, of course, Plymouth Rock itself.

Bay State writers include Louisa May Alcott, author of the enduring classic Little Women; Nathaniel Hawthorne, who re-created the Salem of his Puritan ancestors in The Scarlet Letter; Herman Melville, who wrote Moby-Dick in a house at the foot of Mt. Greylock; Eugene O’Neill, whose early plays were produced at a makeshift theater in Provincetown on Cape Cod; Lowell native Jack Kerouac, author of On the Road; and John Cheever, chronicler of suburban angst. Mark Twain, arguably the most famous American author of all time, lived in Connecticut for much of his writing career (in Hartford and later Redding).
