Day 1: Welcome to New England

Your New England holiday begins at 5:30 PM at The Lenox Hotel. A transfer is included from Logan International Airport to The Lenox Hotel, perfectly situated in the heart of Boston’s picturesque Back Bay neighborhood. A welcome reception at your hotel this evening, followed by a welcome dinner at a local restaurant, gets your New England holiday off to a wonderful start!

Day 2: Plimoth Plantation and Martha’s Vineyard

From Boston, travel to Plymouth to step back in time at Plimoth Plantation, a re-created 17th-century village with costumed living historians who bring the folkways of the Plimoth Colony, one of the earliest English settlements in North America, to life; see Plymouth Rock, marking the Pilgrims’ 1620 landing site. After some free time in Falmouth, a ferry ride from the mainland takes you to the island of Martha’s Vineyard.

Day 3: Exploring Martha’s Vineyard

You’ll bridge the centuries by exploring the Vineyard today. Start your sightseeing by admiring the historic stately homes in Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. Take in the salt marshes, long beaches, and picturesque yacht harbours, and the towns of West Tisbury and Aquinnah.

Day 4: Nantucket’s whaling days & Cape Cod

Weather permitting, today we will visit Nantucket Island, which three centuries ago was the whaling capital of the world. A short 15-minute flight takes you to the home of unspoiled beaches, lone lighthouses, sea captains’ houses and art galleries. While here, enjoy a guided sightseeing journey around the island, as well as a visit to the Nantucket Whaling Museum at your leisure.

Day 5: The Cape, Provincetown & whale-watching

Journey up along the outer Atlantic side of the Cape to visit Cape Cod National Seashore, with its massive sand dunes towering above crested seas. Arrive in Provincetown on the tip of the Cape; once a key whaling town, it has become world-renowned over the last century as an arts colony and a major summer resort.

Day 6: On to legendary Newport

Leave the Cape this morning and head along the coast to historic Newport, Rhode Island, with a stop en route for lunch in – believe it or not – 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.

Day 7: The Breakers, a bay cruise & more in Newport

Your Tauck Director begins the day with a guided stroll along Newport’s Cliff Walk, set between the sea and the mansions. See the opulence of the 19th century’s Gilded Age firsthand on a visit to “The Breakers,” a 70-room Italian Renaissance mansion inspired by the 16th-century palaces of Genoa and Turin. This palatial “summer cottage” built by Cornelius Vanderbilt is now a National Historic Landmark. Following an afternoon spent exploring more of Newport on your own, enjoy a delightful cruise through Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay.

Day 8: Back to Boston for your journey home

Drive back to Boston after a leisurely breakfast this morning. Tauck’s memorable New England holiday ends at Boston’s Logan International Airport at 12:30 PM, or The Lenox Hotel at 1:30 PM, traffic permitting. Airport transfers are included; allow two hours for flight check-in.
