  • Day 2

    Take the scenic route to Canterbury Shaker Village to explore the settlement of the pious religious group who called it home for over a century. Hanover is next, home of prestigious Ivy League Dartmouth College. Nearby is the Saint Gaudens National Historic Site, preserving the home and studio of America’s foremost sculptor. Dinner at your historic inn is preceded by a reception of Vermont-made wine, beer and “nibbles.” Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm (FB,D)

  • Day 3

    See the largest granite quarry in the world, the Rock of Ages, where your guide will share his passion for all things granite. Next you’ll visit Montpelier, the nation’s smallest state capital, for lunch, but save room for dessert! Sugar on Snow is heated maple syrup drizzled over shaved ice. It is heavenly, and Morse Farm still serves it up the old-fashioned way – with sour pickles! Onward to Lake Champlain. Basin Harbor Resort – 2 nights (FB,D)

  • Day 4

    Just up the shoreline from Basin Harbor is “New England’s Smithsonian,” the Shelburne Museum. The afternoon is at your leisure to explore your lakeside paradise, followed by a special 6-course dinner including wine pairings for a memorable farewell to Basin Harbor. (FB,D)

  • Day 5

    The thrill of ascending the Northeast’s highest peak is just as enchanting today as it was in 1869 when Sylvester Marsh opened the Mount Washington Cog Railway to the 6,289-foot summit. From there you’ll have spectacular panoramic views spanning the mountains and valleys of New England. In Lincoln, the Café Lafayette Dinner Train awaits your arrival with a two-hour culinary experience you’ll long remember. Loon Mountain Resort (FB,D)

  • Day 6

    Ascend Loon Mountain with an aerial tram ride to the top for spectacular views, then travel the famed Kancamagus Highway for its rich history and breathtaking beauty. Your final destination today is beautiful Portland, which you’ll see with a local guide. Holiday Inn – 2 nights (FB)

  • Day 7

    Spend your last full day exploring the countryside around Portland with stops at Ricker Hills Apple Orchard and Norlands Living History Center, the latter an 1800s working living-history farm. Your farewell meal is none other than a traditional Maine “lobstah suppah.” (FB,L,D)

  • Day 8

    Depart for Boston where you’ll follow the footsteps of history and have lunch (“chowdah” anyone?) before heading to the airport and your return flight home. (FB,L)

A Coos Bay Christmas

First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.

This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.

Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.

The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.
