The Northeast Kingdom

When Senator George Aiken noted in 1949 that 'this is such beautiful country up here. It ought to be called the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont,' locals were quick to take his advice. Today, the Northeast Kingdom connotes the large wedge between the Quebec and New Hampshire borders. 

The Northeast Kingdom has been listed in the North American and international editions of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, The New York Times best-selling book by Patricia Schultz. 

In 2006, the National Geographic Society named the Northeast Kingdom as the most desirable place to visit in the country and the ninth most desirable place to visit in the world.

In 2010, Yankee Magazine named the NEK the second favorite romantic getaway and the third favorite family getaway in New England
