About the Author
Having grown up in New England, Miles Howard is no stranger to the art of road tripping, from family treks to northern Vermont (to hunt for Christmas trees) and the islands of Midcoast Maine (to escape the tourist mobs). But in 2016, after multiple cross-country road trips, he found himself with a renewed passion for digging deeper into the New England landscape and its communities. He began writing about travel in his regional home—with lots of field research trips, of course.
Since then, he's covered New England travel with an eye for the peculiar and sublime—including charting the most beautiful trails of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont—and the best breweries—for his first travel guide, Moon New England Hiking. He traveled from Pittsfield to Provincetown using only municipal transportation and wrote about the adventure for Boston Magazine. He’s also written for Boston Magazine, The Boston Globe, Southwest Airlines: The Magazine, and others.
