Politics- As you might expect from the region that was paramount to the American Revolution, the people of New England are extremely politically active. The Democratic Party is the dominant political party in the region, and New Englanders tend to be very liberal in their views. For example, in May 2004, Massachusetts became the first US state to legally recognize and perform same-sex marriages. Four of the six US states that have now legalized same-sex marriages are New England states.
New England’s geography offers immense diversity. The region is bounded to the north by Canada, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by Long Island Sound, and to the west by the state of New York. There are rivers and lakes, towering forests, mountain ranges with hiking and skiing trails, pastoral farmland and countryside, and dramatic rocky coastline and soft, sandy beaches
