Do you like the rural, laid-back countryside of Maine, the quaint villages of New Hampshire, the ski slopes and quaint shopping towns in Vermont, the leafy, high ranking suburbs of Connecticut, the ocean breeze in Rhode Island or the old, pristine homes in Massachusetts?

Which is your favorite and why?

I remember when I was growing up in Massachusetts, my friends and I used to refer to Vermont as New England's playground.

I think if I had to live there, I'd go with Connecticut. It seems a little more connected to the rest of the US. I guess Mass. is, too, but I don't want big city. RI seemed like a suburb of Boston to me.

Vermont and Maine for the skiing, New Hampsha for Lake Winnepesaukee and hiking Monadnock, Massachusetts for Boston Cambridge and the Cape, Rhode Island for Providence, Connecticut for... hmm... Bridgeport!!!

I'm going with Massachusetts because I like that one has access to both urban and rural regions as well as the shore (and most of the other New England states don't have large cities, which I'm partial too). I've also spent a fair amount of time in New Hampshire (Massachusetts's nemesis ), and I like that state quite a bit as well. I love the White Mountains and the small town of Portsmouth.

Mass. I'm a big fan of smaller cities with lots of history and restored architecture. Massachusetts has them in abundance. Portsmouth, NH, Providence, RI, and Portland, ME are also great towns, but I could list ten in Mass off the top of my head that I really liked. And it has Boston. 'Nuf said.

Thumbs up I like them all

I was born and raised in RI and also lived for a time in Massachusetts. Visited New Hampshire a lot and Vermont and Maine to a lesser extent. I like all of the NE States.
