Step back in time as you explore Plimoth Plantation, a re-created 17th century village filled with costumed actors who bring the locations history to life. You’ll see Plymouth Rock, marking the Pilgrims’ 1620 landing site, and enjoy some free time for lunch in Falmouth. In the afternoon you take the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard, one of New England’s hottest vacation destinations. Here you spend the next two nights in the former whaling town of Edgartown.
Your day starts admiring the stately homes in Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven whilst being surrounded by the islands salt marshes, long beaches and picturesque harbours and the towns of West Tisbury and Aquinnah. The remainder of the afternoon and evening are yours to discover more of the island. Bird watch at the bluffs, watch the lobstermen pull up their traps offshore, hang out at the fishing pier, or seek out what interests you most in this idyllic New England holiday spot or perhaps relax on the beach!
You’ll take a scenic 15 minute flight to the island of Nantucket this morning over the home of unspoiled beaches, lone lighthouses, sea captains’ houses and art galleries. Admire the colonial architecture, winding cobbled streets, and historic taverns in the quaint harbourside town before taking the ferry back to the mainland. You’ll spend the next two nights in the quaint seaside village of Chatham, overlooking Cape Cod Bay. Tonight dinner is a traditional lobster and clam feast!
Journey up along the outer Atlantic side of the Cape to visit Cape Cod National Seashore, with its giant sand dunes towering above crested seas. Arrive in Provincetown on the tip of the Cape, world-renowned as a thriving arts colony and a major summer resort. “P-Town” is set near the summering grounds for a number of whale species. Take a guided whale-watching cruise to see these amazing aquatic mammals roll, flip their tails, and blow through their blowholes. Have dinner back at your resort in Chatham this evening.
Head along the coast to historic Newport, Rhode Island, with a stop en route for lunch in the town of Sandwich. Newport is renowned as a long-time haven for yachting enthusiasts, former home of the America’s Cup, and one of the great playgrounds of the rich in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Drive past some of the ostentatious mansions that served as summer “cottages” for affluent socialites during the Gilded Age, and explore the celebrated Ten-Mile Drive; your home for the next two nights of your New England holiday is set right on Newport Harbor.
You may choose this morning to take a stroll with your Tour Director along the Cliff Walk, set between the sea and the mansions. Your morning also includes a guided tour through The Breakers, a 70 room Italian Renaissance mansion inspired by the 16th century palaces of Genoa and Turin. With so many boats on the shores, it’s no wonder that today’s highlight is a cruise through Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. This evening enjoy a cocktail reception and farewell dinner overlooking Cliff Walk and The Atlantic.
After breakfast, it’s just a short drive back to Boston. Your journey ends at Boston Airport, where you board your flight back to the UK. Alternatively, you may choose to extend your stay with a few additional nights in the wonderful city of Boston before returning home.
