    NYers , NJ ers and PA ers and NEers are plentiful because yrs ago.............at least 10, probably more like 15 - 20.........the travel agencies in the northeast began getting good deals for aruba.

    the charters picked right up on it

    more selection of flights
    more charter

    love at first sight.

    and yes, i am from MA, soon to be a Maineiac.

    yes it's true..........dunkins is a draw for many of the New Englanders

    Northeast USA ................4.75 hrs flight time to aruba!

    we got hooked many yrs ago when aruba was a stopover for a bonaire scuba trip.

    aruba..............like cape cod or maine coast or bahamas or florida, but with better beaches, casinos, guaranteed good weather, easier traffic OMG, way better than cape cod or maine coast, florida or bahamas!

    Only thing better in NE than Aruba is the lobsters...and if you really want one, you can go to the Waterfront Crab House at Renaissance. Eat the same lobster that flew south with you on American Airlines flight 1013.....BOS-AUA......

    And you're paying his airfare, too. $50+ for a lobster you could get in Maine for $14.95...

    I love the whole island, so it's hard to choose, but if I have to then I would say baby beach & the natural bridge area

    Hmmm....let's see how can I explain this??...stepping off the plane from NY to the warmth of Aruba is to me like experiencing a small degree of Heaven. I can't quite put into words how it feels to exit the airplane, collect my luggage and then exit the airport into the warmth of Aruba...this keeps me coming back and always will

    I'll second that!!! One of the highlights of the vacation (as silly as this may seem) is hitting the landing strip at the airport in Aruba and feeling that warmth and the moisture in the air before you even get off the plane. After the yearly insanity of a Toronto winter, it is indeed a small degree of Heaven.

    be well, brightest blessings, and if you're heading to heaven, give us all a thought and send us some sunshine.

    If you stay at some of the other hotels on Eagle Beach, like Manchebo and Amsterdam Manor, you will meet alot of Europeans. We stay at Amsterdam Manor every year and on my trip last month I met people from England, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, etc. at happy hour - it's alot of fun to meet and talk to people from other countries and makes me feel like I left the U.S. (which is important to me when I travel outside the U.S.)

    OK, if you think that those are the reasons...but I'm sticking with New England $ucks and Aruba doesn't .
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, steering wheel in one hand, Martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “Haaa Wooo” what a ride!!!"

    Everyone is New England appreicates the warm weather, the fine people, the food, and a genuine feeling of "warmth" when vacationing in Aruba. No one, and I mean no one, goes back if they don't like it. I doubt you would find anyone who doesn't like it anyway. We travel with 25+ people who are all from Ma, RI, NH and NY and they LOVE it there. Needless to say, we all could have taken cruises or picked another island to "nest" in, but I doubt we would all be happy. Ages from 15 mts to 76 ....all entertained and happy...
    Aruba is truely ONE HAPPY ISLAND....
