if you actually think New England is boring, then leave. but if you want to find some of the beauty of the region, there is plenty to find. White Mountains of NH, Greens of VT, Katahdin in Maine are all great areas for hiking.
In NH you can go to the whites, hike around the pemigewasset area or go to hampton beach for some surfing and the trashiness of the state.
In VT, you have the greens for hiking, but areas like Middlebury and Vergennes are beautiful areas. The NEK has some sick stuff too, and really funky areas. Lake Willoughby is an area i always wanted to go to but was never able to. And of course Burlington and Lake Champlain, along with the northern champlain islands are all amazing places.
Maine has an amazing coast with surfing and Acadia ntl park. i dont know maine well though.
in MA, you have Boston, the Cape, and the Berkshires out west are beautiful and have some great hiking.
in CT...i have no idea whats nice there.
RI has some sick surfing, and Newport is cool too if you have any interest in sailing.
Just get out there and explore and you/ll find places you like and places you dislike. if you like hiking or biking, go to an area that has great spots for it. same with surfing. NE really has it all, you jsut have to find it
