celebrating its 85th anniversary this year, we launched our first-ever Hall of Fame
for the annual Best of New England summer travel awards. But even as we paid homage to the tried and true — dining, lodging, and attractions that have continued to excel through the years — we wanted to recognize the up-and-comers of 2020
. The restaurants that folks are buzzing about. The new inns and hotels promising unforgettable overnights. The latest venues for enjoying arts, sports, history, and more.
We were in the middle of planning this Web post when the COVID-19 crisis arrived, forcing some delays to this and other Yankee
projects in the works. Please bear with us and check back in a few weeks. In the meantime, you can cast your own “vote” for favorite New England businesses by looking for ways to help them weather the shutdown. Buy a gift certificate. Order from their website. Leave them a great online review. And tip generously whenever you can! —The Editors
