It's that magical time of year in the Northeast -- that stretch of still-warm weather after the summer weekenders head home and before the hoards of leaf-peepers hit the road. And rather than mourn the loss of bonfires on the beach and days spent wearing swimsuits, we're celebrating shoulder season, that in-between time that's perfect for a visit to coastal Maine, Rhode Island or New York. To make sure not a weekend goes to waste, Jetsetter put together an easy guide to shoulder season. Consider it our last call for lobster rolls, lighthouses and the rest of summertime's biggest perks. --Sara Morrow
