The Island of Sao Miguel is the largest island in size and population, with its airport connecting flights between the U.S., the Azores, Madeira, Oporto and Lisbon Portugal. It is an island with European flavor that is just a four and half hour international flight away from the departing east coast city of Boston. It is referred to as “the Green Island” because of its rolling green fields, verdant throughout the year. It is also a place to experience natural beauty created thousand of years ago by volcanic activity. There are lakes areas to explore, hot springs to see, smell and taste if you chose to as well as mingle with the local friendly inhabitants as you visit historic towns, and villages as well as the main cities. The fall and winter season is different from the spring and summer. There are fewer visitors on the island, scenic points are less crowded, and the island seems to be more peaceful. The best part is the natural beauty stays the same, as well as the warmth of the Azorean people. The weather during the winter months is comfortable as the temperatures range between 50F – 65F degrees.
