Ask any of the 12 Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE) innkeepers, and they’ll tell you that travelers love packages. By bundling meals and entertainment/adventure together, DINE inns create almost the same offerings as an all-inclusive New England resort. Packages take all the work out of planning an active vacation too.
In last week’s blog, Part I of this series, we explored Seasonal Packages, Romantic Getaways and Spa Packages. This week we’ll look at Hot Deals and Weekend Specials, Outdoor Fun and Culinary Vacation Packages
