HIGHLIGHTS:  Flight & Tour of Boston, Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, New England Clambake, Provincetown, New York City, Circle Island Cruise, & lots more … 11 Meals

 

DAY 1BOSTON & THE FREEDOM TRAIL …We meet at the airport for our flight to Boston, and upon arrival are met by an awaiting Motorcoach for a narrated tour of this historic city and the famed "Freedom Trail".  Later we check into our hotel near Hyannis on Cape Cod for 3 nights. Welcome Dinner. (D)

DAY 2CAPE COD … Today on Cape Cod we take the most scenic drive out to the very tip of the crooked-finger strip of land that forms the Cape to Provincetown.  It was here that the Pilgrims first landed (not in Plymouth as many believe) and we'll see the Pilgrim Monument, a 252 foot tower commemorating their arrival.  Everyone will have time to stroll among the many shops, restaurants, and art galleries that line the main street. Tonight we enjoy an authentic old-fashioned New England Clambake with a bowl of that world famous "chowdah"!  (B,D) 

DAY 3 … MARTHA'S VINEYARD … New England, that part of our country with such a distinctive accent and unique customs, and we are a part of the experience as we arrive by ferry on Martha's Vineyard.  Landing at Oaks Bluff, you will have time for lunch and a tour of this famous island.  A popular resort and vacation spot, "The Vineyard" has a relaxed atmosphere despite having been a center for the shipping and whaling industries.  Later we'll return to the Cape.  (B)

DAY 4NEWPORT & THE BREAKERS …We enjoy a morning tour of Newport, the resort coastal town that was a favorite playground for the “rich and famous”. Focusing on the palatial summer homes of the wealthy, the Rockefellers and Astors, and other barons of industry, it is amazing the way the elite actually lived. We have an opportunity to visit the grandest of Newport’s summer cottages, the famed “Breakers” mansion of Cornelius Vanderbilt II.  Later we travel to New Jersey for 2 nights. (B)

DAY 5 …   NEW YORK CITY & THE CIRCLE ISLAND CRUISE … Relax as we show you the sights of Manhattan from a different point of view as we cruise all the way around the island. This is a complete Manhattan Island tour, and the only way to see all five boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx – in one trip. Plus, you’ll see all three NYC rivers, all the major bridges and the rest of the city’s best sights, including the full Manhattan skyline, the growing Brooklyn waterfront, the legendary Yankee Stadium, the hip Harlem Heights waterfront, the lush greenery of upper Manhattan and the stately George Washington Bridge All of that plus an up-close with the Statue of Liberty! After the cruise, enjoy some time in Times Square before we return to our hotel.  (B)

DAY 6 … Breakfast and we travel down the eastern seaboard past Philly and DC.  We stop for lunch at the Inner Harbor of Baltimore for some crab cakes and later arrive in Virginia for our last night and Farewell Dinner.  (B,D)

DAY 7 ... Breakfast, and we head home after experiencing the islands of Cape Cod, New York,  and so much more.  (B)
