Day Itinerary

Day Itinerary

Day 1 : Fly to Boston

Upon arrival on the East Coast we check in for a two-night stay in Boston.

Day 2 : Boston Sights

We begin our discoveries of New England with a guided tour of Boston. Explore sites on the Freedom Trail to learn about the crucial role they played in our colonial history, view Paul Revere’s home, and Old North Church, where signal lanterns ignited the American Revolution, and much more. Our tour ends at Faneuil Hall, with time for us to stroll through the iconic marketplace and grab lunch on our own. Afterwards, we arrive at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum to browse nostalgic exhibits and watch an insightful documentary that celebrates JFK and the glamorous Camelot era. Tonight, we enjoy a Welcome Dinner with our Tour Director and traveling companions.

Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3 : Salem

This morning we visit Salem, home to the infamous Salem witch trials. Tour the city and see the Witch Trials Memorial, the Salem Witch Museum, and more. We enjoy a guided tour of The House of Seven Gables, a historic home built in 1668 on Salem Harbor. It is best known as the setting of American author Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1851 novel of the same name. Enjoy leisure time in Salem where we have lunch with time to explore and shop. We arrive in North Conway this evening and check in to our overnight accommodations.

Lunch

Day 4 : Kancamagus Highway

Some of New England’s most beloved vistas unfold before us today on the Kancamagus Highway amidst the lush foliage and towering White Mountains of New Hampshire. Here, pristine brooks babble under iconic covered bridges. Adding more charm to our woodland excursion, we also take a ride on the Hobo Railroad along the winding Pemigewasset River. We continue our afternoon with a tour of Fadden’s General Store & Maple Sugarhouse to learn about maple syrup production, from tapping the trees to the final product. Dinner is included tonight with time to unwind at our accommodations.

Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5 : Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home

We tour the home of Robert Lincoln this morning, the only child of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln to live to adulthood. He later became Chairman of the Pullman Company. His Georgian Revival mansion was built in 1905 and is nestled in a valley surrounded by the scenic Green Mountain National Forest. Tour the mansion and the grounds, explore the 1903 Pullman Palace Car, Sunbeam, and much more. After, we visit the Bennington Battle Monument. This memorial stands over 300 feet tall and was built to commemorate the Battle of Bennington on August 16, 1777, which historians consider the defining turning point in the Revolutionary War. We spend the next two nights in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, the heart of the Berkshires.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Next, we visit Norman Rockwell’s former home and studio, now a fascinating museum of his life, art, and legacy. We continue to the Hancock Shaker Village to admire the famous Round Stone Barn and enjoy a typical Shaker lunch. A guided tour sheds light on the pacifist, communal Shaker lifestyle and some of their handmade furniture. This evening is yours to relax.
