Further up the coast is the charming fishing port of Gloucester and the famous Fishermen’s Memorial statue commemorating “... they that go down in ships.” The artist colonies of Rockport, Massachusetts and Kennebunkport, Maine, bustle in the summer and provide the quiet inspiration of the sea all year long.

To White Mountains
(66 mi/106 km)
Begin with a stop at Portland Head Light, a lovely example of a respected architectural form.

Valley (174 mi/278 km)

The famous Shaker furniture and other artifacts on display here were intended to be a simple expression of their worship.
1 night Connecticut River Valley/Sheraton Springfield

Day 7

To Newport and
Cape Cod (180 mi/288 km)
Today we first travel to America’s smallest state, Rhode Island. Visit Newport, the sailing capital of New England. Here, at the turn of the last century, America’s most wealthy families lived in such opulence that they referred to their palatial seasonal homes as “cottages.” Travel along the beautiful Ten Mile Drive, lined with extravagant stately mansions. You will tour one of these “summer cottages”. Then it is on to Cape Cod. Awake to the fresh sea air in this world renowned resort. Today, choose an unescorted round trip ferry ride to the island of Martha’s Vineyard, with an included sightseeing tour.
This is New England’s largest, and perhaps most famous island.
OR
You may decide to join us on a tour of Cape Cod with a whale watch cruise (weather permitting).
