You feel it in the mountains, along the mighty Atlantic… it's Americana. And you come face-to-face with it in small towns that live it, daily. Search out the elusive soul of New England from Boston to Bar Harbor, from fishing boats to Berkshire retreats and the wilderness of Acadia National Park… in the taste of fresh lobster and maple syrup, and in the dazzled eye of the beholder.
