About Us

When I founded New England Weekender I had only one mission in mind.  I wanted to share my passion for New England while telling the stories of the people I felt blessed to meet.

Now, New England Weekender is “WE” (Nicole Goncalves, Founder & Amanda DeSanti, Graphic Designer) plus members of the communities we feature.

Four times per year we launch an interactive guide that promotes Weekend Getaways. A Passport Map allows visitors to unlock discounts and area promotions! Be the first to visit everyone on the map and win specialty MERCH such as teeshirts, totes and giveaway items all while exploring new places across New England!
