Here's a round-up of the latest USA travel news and stories that caught my eye:

  • Writer Joyce Maynard revisits the New England of her youth, soaking up nostalgia while staying in style. Covered here are Maine vacation cottages, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a drive-in movie theater, and Vermont's Green Mountain National Forest. [NYT "T" Magazine]
  • Marijuana Tourism? ABC News wonders if new marijuana laws in Washington State and Colorado will turn them into a New Amsterdam. Even though residents in those two states can now legally obtain small amounts of pot, it is still illegal under federal law: "Until the U.S. Department of Justice announces how it will handle marijuana cases in the two states, travelers may not find what they're looking for." [ABC News]
  • Soon, ski resorts in Utah could combine to form the largest skiing complex in North America. The proposed link-up of resorts in the Wasatch Range could create a skiing area three times the size of Vail, Colorado. [Huffington Post/AP]
