Here is some advice that I gave the writer from Reader’s Digest who just published a guide to travel bargains around the US. I was in good company, including Pauline Frommer, Peter Greenberg, Matt Gross (NYT’s Frugal Traveler), and AP travel editor Beth Harpaz.
Massachusetts and Vermont: “Ecotourism doesn’t have to mean roughing it in a jungle. You can do something in an afternoon, like a white-water adventure on the Deerfield River in Massachusetts. Put in at Florida and you end up farther south in Charlemont. Choose a group raft and a professional guide, or bring your own tubes and kayaks and do a self-guided trip. Kingdom Trails, voted best trail network for mountain biking in North America by readers of Bike Magazine, is in East Burke, Vermont.”
