Welcome to New England Daytrippers!

We share our adventures in art, travel, food, and life in beautiful New England by taking mini escapes on a whim to wherever the day takes us.

A small introduction…

We are Jennifer and Billy Pentland. We’ve been a team ever since we met on a blind date back in 1990 at the Hard Rock Cafe. Both of us were born and raised in New England, went to school here, and continue to hold thriving careers.


A pandemic has brought America and the rest of the world to a grinding halt, therefore our travels have been delayed indefinitely. However, we promise to get back to our adventures as soon as we are allowed to do it safely.

Every adversity brings new experiences and new lessons.
