The Steamboat Inn Receives Editors’ Choice Honor

Mystic, CT – The Steamboat Inn today announced it was selected as an “Editors’ Choice” in the 2007 Special Travel Issue of Yankee Magazine. Yankee’s trusted endorsement will be recommended to nearly 2 million readers this spring, summer, and fall.

On sale now and available until October 31 where magazines are sold, Yankee’s Special Travel Issue uncovers the destinations and activities that make the region a hot spot for spring escapes, summer fun, and fall getaways for New Englanders and visitors alike. The Editors’ Choice recommendation singles out those establishments Yankee’s editors feel no visitor should miss.

“Readers often point out that the recipients of the Editors’ Choice endorsement represent the rustic, the refined, and everything in between, then ask what criteria we use to select them,” said Mel Allen, editor of Yankee. “Whether it’s a farm stand, a lobster shack with paper plates, or a restaurant that serves its meals on fine china, they all share a singular quality. These are places that travelers will remember, that locals love, and that promise visitors the opportunity to experience New England’s unique character firsthand.”
