New England Arts & Crafts Show

Craft fairs (or shows) are a common sight during the summer months all over New England. Fairfield Connecticut hosts several and the 360 above was captured at the annual Chamber of Commerce Show on the Town Common. Many craftspeople travel about selling at the different locations from weekend to weekend, always hoping for great weather and large crowds. This week the sun was out and it was warm and humid - a typical summer day in southern CT - and many beach goers stopped on their way home from their day in the sun at the beaches just down the street.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
