Dublin, New Hampshire — Yankee Magazine’s May/June 2013 Travel Guide, on newsstands April 23, features 317 “Best of New England — Editors’ Choice” winners, which include the region’s best attractions, food & dining, lodging, and bargains. This special issue also names 120 top events around New England and shares six island daytrips — from dawn to dark, plus recipes for delectable island fare.

“Every one of the 300-plus places we highlight contains an untold back story about someone striving for perfection, having a dream, and having the vision to make a difference, whether it’s a small artisan’s studio or a lobster-in-the-rough shack or a dressed-up steakhouse on a tree-lined Boston street,” says Yankee’s editor Mel Allen. “While it may be hard to create a business, the true challenge is in making it work, being good enough that it endures and brings people back. Those are the qualities we look for and reward when we say ‘Best of New England.’”

“Whether you take a trip to one of the islands we showcase in this issue, or just plan to explore New England this summer, take this issue along with you. We will guide you toward doing everything — or nothing at all — whichever you choose. That’s what makes travel the mysterious, welcoming escape we need. Thanks for coming along with us.”
