NEW ENGLAND

Hallmark Movies set in Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Vermont & all over New England

As a Texan, New England seems like a lush, historically rich, and sophisticated place that I’ve never had the chance to visit. I’m so fascinated by its history and all the famous authors who wrote there.

I just love those cozy Hallmark movies set in New England—with their charming foods, farms, books, and elegant clothing! This blog post is inspired by New England!

Hallmark movies set in New England feature stunning seaside backgrounds and are rich with historical culture.

In Texas, we don't have many places that specialize in soups. However, in New England, there's a fantastic spot I'm really looking forward to visiting. New England Soup Factory is a charming café that creates gourmet soups from scratch. Their cookbook is just as enchanting with its beautiful pictures and delicious recipes.🍲
