The president of OOS Investments in Chicago, Illinois, James Neumann oversees the operation of numerous billboards throughout the United States. Beyond his work with billboards, James Neumann enjoys traveling across the nation.

Both foreign and domestic travelers in the United States may wish to explore New England, which offers plentiful opportunity from a natural and historic standpoint. Many people choose to start in Boston with its 2.5-mile Freedom Trail and historic waterfront along the harbor where the Boston Tea Party took place.

If you want to explore farther off the beaten path, Vermont offers some beautiful natural sights. For instance, Mad River Valley, home of Warren Falls, also encompasses about 2.5 miles of Lincoln Brook, which passes meadows and forests and comes to a deep chasm covered with ferns and spectacular rock formations.

Connecticut boasts a castle that belonged to a stage actor known for playing Sherlock Holmes. Now known as Gillette Castle State Park, the castle and grounds provide extensive hiking trails, a steam train, and ferry boat.

If the charm of a waterfront bed and breakfast sounds appealing, you can visit Newport, Rhode Island, with its mansions from the Gilded Age. You also can tour the mansions, which served as the summer homes for families such as the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, and Astors.
