Cape Cod & Nantucket: Celebrating Plymouth's 400th Anniversary

Saturday September 26 - October 2, 2020

If you haven’t been to Cape Cod…this is the year to do it. Massachusetts is poised for a year of national significance; the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower voyage and the founding of Plymouth Colony. For those returning to the Cape, you’ll see that we’ve included different sites, to make it ‘New For You.’ See magical Cape Cod in the autumn as New England's foliage makes the Eastern Seaboard even more beautiful.  We’ve left some time for you to truly relax and take it all in, so you’ll feel like you’ve had a holiday!

 

Day 1  You’ll begin to relax as we will travel through Upstate New York and into Massachusetts for the night. Hampton Inn, Chicopee, MA

 

Day 2 First stop this morning is Boston and after free time at Quincy Market, a local guide joins us for a city tour. Depart Boston and travel south to America’s Hometown – PLYMOUTH.  Home of our Pilgrim Fathers. Photo stops will be made at Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II, a reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to the New World. For dinner we’ve arranged for a TRADITIONAL TURKEY DINNER with all the fixings at Plimoth Plantation. Continue to the sandy shores of CAPE COD for a four-night stay. Our new hotel features an indoor pool and is next door to the Cape Cod Mall.  Fairfield Inn, Hyannis MA(B, D)

Day 3 This morning we travel along a scenic byway winding through centuries of Cape Cod history. We drive through the Cape Cod National Seashore area where the sand dunes and ocean are all around making you feel like you’ve arrived at "Land's End" in Provincetown.  You are now at the extreme tip of Cape Cod.  Free afternoon in Provincetown to enjoy the wonderful variety of restaurants, shops, and galleries that make this artist/fishermen village unique.  Your guide will offer suggestions such as a Whale Watch Excursion, a Dune Tour Excursion, Visit the Pilgrim Monument and Museum or just meander around town. (B)

 

Day 4 Spend part of the day touring the first Cape Towns, HYANNIS and SANDWICH.  Most of the newcomers hunted, farmed, and fished.  Travel though SANDWICH – the oldest town on Cape Cod.  Hear stories of the Puritans and Quakers. Remainder of the day is free for you to explore on your own. (B)

Day 5 This morning board the high-speed ferry to the stunning island of NANTUCKET.  We’ll do a tour of the island and learn about the history and lifestyles of the islanders as you pass through the picturesque scenery. There will be free time for lunch and shopping.  Lobster dinner included back on the mainland. (B, D)

 

Day 6 No stop to Cape Cod would be complete without a stop at a CRANBERRY BOG to learn about their farming and harvesting techniques. After this, a pleasant coastal drive takes us to Newport, Rhode Island. Here we will have free time to enjoy the charm of Newport’s historic buildings and restored homes. Hampton Inn, Chicopee, MA (B)
