Day One — Arrive in Boston Arrive in Boston, Massachusetts with an included transfer to your hotel. Meet your Tour Manager in the hotel lobby at 6:00 p.m. for a welcome dinner. Dinner Day Two — Boston City Tour and Plymouth Rock 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. Later, we make our way onto Cape Cod. As the sun sets this evening, we’ll prepare for a delicious lobster bake — a New England tradition and the perfect close to this unforgettable day. Breakfast and dinner Day Three — Martha’s Vineyard This morning we ferry to the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard, a playground for many rich and famous, including former President Clinton. The island’s coast has astounding cliffs at Gay’s Head with spectacular shoreline views. We visit the village of Edgartown with its quaint gingerbread cottages and narrow streets. Breakfast and dinner Day Four — 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 free time in Newport, we continue to Vermont, our home for the night. Breakfast Day Five — 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 Day Six — Mount Washington Cog Railway and Kancamagus Scenic Byway This morning we travel through Franconia Notch to see where the Old Man of the Mountain used to be and come to Mount Washington, the highest peak in New England. Here, ride the world’s first mountain climbing train, The Cog Railway, to the top for incredible views. Then, we stop for an included lunch before coming to the quaint town of North Conway, with its outlet shopping. We take the Kancamagus Scenic Byway through the White Mountains. Considered one of the world’s most spectacular fall-foliage trips, the road meanders through vast forests, old logging roads, and Indian hunting paths. Breakfast and lunch Day Seven — Lake Winnipesaukee Cruise and Kennebunkport 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 to share memories with our traveling companions.
