    Over 350 years of history await you on a sightseeing tour of Boston’s historic Freedom Trail, from the Public Garden to the Old North Church. Enjoy free time for lunch at Faneuil Hall before heading to the historic town of Plymouth, site of the “Rock,” and where our forefathers first landed on American soil.

4
  1. Newport and Breakers Mansion
    Entering the smallest New England state, we land in Newport, Rhode Island. This fascinating seaport is famous not only for its maritime history, but also for the fabulous summer homes built there during America's glamorous “Gilded Age.” We visit Vanderbilt's Breakers Mansion and get a glimpse of how America's most elite families lived at the turn of the century. After our included lunch on Newport, we continue to Vermont, our home for the night. Breakfast and lunch

  1. The Back Roads of Vermont
    This morning we set out along the scenic back roads of Vermont, which takes us through such beautiful mountain villages as Newfane and Grafton. Weston is home to the Vermont Country Store, “Purveyors of the Practical and Hard-To-Find,” and Woodstock has been called the “prettiest small town in America.” While Vermont’s maple syrup season takes place in the spring, maple syrup products are readily available. We also make a stop at Quechee Gorge State Park. This impressive river chasm is often referred to as Vermont’s “Little Grand Canyon” and offers spectacular views. Later, we continue on to Lincoln, New Hampshire, our home for the next two nights. Breakfast and dinner

  1. Conway Scenic Railroad and Kancamagus Scenic Byway
    This afternoon we follow the Kancamagus Scenic Byway as it follows a beautiful path through the White Mountains. It is one of the world's most spectacular autumn foliage trips, where a stunning spectrum of color underscores the region's natural beauty year round. The road meanders through vast forests, old logging roads, and Indian hunting paths. Later, we board the Conway Scenic Railroad for a journey through the White Mountains and enjoy the scenery of the Mt. Washington Valley countryside. Relive a part of railroad history, when the first train traveled through this region over 130 years ago. Breakfast and dinner

    Today we set sail for a journey across Lake Winnipesaukee on what has been called the “most beautiful cruise in New England.” Sail from the home port of Weirs Beach aboard the M/S Mount Washington to Wolfeboro, known as the oldest resort town in New Hampshire. We continue to Kennebunkport, one of Maine's coastal jewels and the summer home to many of America's rich and famous. Adorned with stately homes, Kennebunkport seems to wait breathlessly for its captains to return from sea. Tonight, we gather for a farewell dinner on the waterfront in Maine. Breakfast and dinner
