America's Eastern region is a diverse area filled with just about every type of terrain an active traveler could want: Mountains, marshes, lakes, cliffs, forests, and so much more. We took a trip down the coast, and then headed inland, to some top spots in the East for getting active -- from the tip of Maine, to the Florida Keys. Take a look at what we found along the way!
This quaint town along Maine's coast is notable for its history, beaches, and outdoor activities. York Harbor experiences a surge of visitors during the summertime, with tourists flocking to the sandy and rocky beaches, and enjoying activities such as swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, and even whale-watching. There are also nature preserves in the area for hiking, as well as nearby golf courses.
Where to Stay: Stage Neck Inn York Harbor If there's one word to describe Vermont, it's "scenic." Winding roads along rolling hills allow for vistas of tumbling streams, lovely villages, and thick woods. Smugglers' Notch, once serving as an illegal route to Canada and now one of Vermont's most gorgeous adventure trails, is the state's top hiking spot.
Where to Stay: Trapp Family Lodge The Green Mountains, one of the main attractions in the region, offer lovely views, plus over 20 resorts with some of the best skiing on the East Coast (the slopes transform into hiking trails during warmer months).
Where to Stay: The Inn at Ormsby Hill Summer is when Newport truly comes alive. It is host to the Newport Jazz Festival and Folk Festival, and as the "yachting capital of the world," is the site of regattas and a vibrant yachting and sailing community.
Where to Stay: Forty 1 North Host city of the 1980 Winter Olympics, Lake Placid is a winter sports lover's paradise. Although summer is its busiest season, there are plenty of outdoor adventures for visitors at any time of year. Located in the middle of the Adirondack Mountains, the town is great for travelers looking to mountain bike, hike, or ice climb.
Where to Stay: High Peaks Resort The Finger Lakes Region in Central New York has long been appreciated for its natural beauty, with the area experiencing steady tourist growth thanks in large part to its outdoor offerings, and more recently, its many wineries. During autumn months, leaf-peepers are drawn to the region's country roads for the colorful trees across the picturesque hills and valleys, while in wintertime, locals and visitors head to the nearby slopes. There are numerous trails for Nordic skiing and snow-shoeing as well as ice-skating, sledding and snow tubing.
Where to Stay: Hope Lake Lodge This rural area of New York state offers myriad outdoors activities -- including zip lining, hiking and snow shoeing -- as well as a number of quaint towns worth a visit.
Where to Stay: The Thompson House The Carolina Low Country, which stretches along the eastern coast of South Carolina and down to the Sea Islands of Georgia, has a celebrated natural beauty highlighted by lush, Spanish moss-covered gardens and gorgeous waterfront landscapes. Visitors can boat along the Ashley or Cooper Rivers in Charleston, or hit one of the lovely area beaches of the Sea Islands (like Hilton Head!).
Where to Stay: Courtyard Charleston Waterfront The Florida Keys are as close to the Caribbean (and its nice weather) as you can get in the U.S. Visitors flock to the area during the winter and spring to soak up the year-round heat and swim in the beautiful, calm waters. Situated on the third largest barrier reef in the world, the Keys are a great destination for snorkeling and scuba diving, and there are tons of other outdoor activities, too -- tennis, golf, kayaking, fishing...the list goes on.
