New England is a region of the United States and is made up of 5 1/2 states. The states in New England are: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and northern and eastern Connecticut*.
New England is best known for its awesome sports teams (both professional and college). It is also home to the greatest fair in the country.
If you can live it in New England you can pretty much live anywhere in the entire world, as New England has a little bit of everything. Generally nice people (interestingly enough the farther north you go the nicer they get). It is true that New Englanders have a different way of driving but it doesn't make us rude it makes us in a hurry!
* As a Nutmugger I'd like to set the record straight on this matter. South-western Connecticut is NOT part of New England and arguable it isn't even part of Connecticut. It is made up of rich executives who work in New York and their trophy wives. The be a bit more specific I am referring to the 203 area (as opposed to the 860 area). The 203 area is full of rich white collar executives and the vultures that feed of of their excess wealth (maids, butlers, drivers, ect..). They worship the cult that sometimes goes by the name of "New York Yankees" and other times goes by the name of "New York Giants". They don't have rough hands and they hire people to mow their lawns and shovel their drive ways (of course if I has a 5 acre lawn and a 3 mile drive I'd do the same...).
1: "I'm from Manchester, Connecticut."
2: "So you're not part of New England than?
1:"No Manchester is in the 860 area. You are referring to the 203 area. Down their they don't work and live off the stock market and inheritances. In the 860 we have to hack it like all the other people from New England."
2: "Ah I never understood that difference before."
New England is home to wicked cold winters and the wicked humid summers.
Everyone thinks of New England as the most stuck-up and rudest people in all of the US..then why was New Hampshire
voted as the most livable state in 2005? Don't judge New England before you've spent time or lived here, it's awesome.
Just because New England has private schools doesn't mean we're stuck up. We're very friendly :)
The best damn region in the country. With the best damn football team, the best damn baseball team..and a hockey team and a basketball team. Cold as hell place here only the strongest men can survive and the weak cry.
I went to a football game in New England, and damn it was cold, but those frigin Pats kicked ass!!!
The only region of the United States that actually has four seasons. We New Englanders are ready for anything!
If you don't live in New England, you don't really know what summer, autumn, winter, and spring really are.
Massachusetts and Friends
New Hampshire? Maine? Connecticut? Oooh, you mean those other states in Massachusetts and Friends!
Just like the song says, it really is the spirit of America. Beautiful country, great schools, great food, rich history, intelligent people. Not to mention real weather. New England has everything, from oceans to mountains to lakes to countryside to cities. Best sports teams too. I mean there is a damn good reason why you New York bastards flock up here every year like seagulls to breadcrumbs.
People hate us because are the last remaining bit of what America was founded on.
New England? Nah, more like Old America...
To all people not from New England...
Don't hate us because we still have standards.
The six greatest states in the country. In the New England states, you will deal with fewer rednecks and far less ignorance, as most of the ivy league schools can be found here. The vacation spots are unbeatable and most people dress decent. In the fall, the foliage is a major tourist attraction. During the winter months, people visit to stay in lodges or ski. In the spring and summer, the beaches are crowded and the small towns earn the most money by housing all of the vacationers who decide to stay at Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Each state has its own perks... Oh yeah, did I mention that the Patriots are better than any other team?
Guy 1: "You're from New England? You must be a fuckin' Democrat hippie."
Guy: "No, I'm not a hippie, but yes, I do have more money than you."
The six north-easternmost American states, located north and west of New York (north of Long Island, which is part of NY). Historically, eastern New York is occasionally included as part of New England (Vermont was actually part of NY at one point), but today it consists of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
