Highlights

    • Choose between two carefully selected activities
    • : Enjoy the warm, colorful scenery as you travel west to Stockbridge for a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum, home to the largest and most significant collection of original Rockwell art, including enduring favorites from Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Postcovers, together with changing exhibitions of works by American illustrators past and present
    • : Guided tour of Chesterwood, which is a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the former summer home, studio and gardens of America’s foremost 20th century public sculptor.

What's this trip about?

    Embrace the beauty of New England during this 8-day guided tour. Behold Boston, one of the oldest cities in the U.S. and where much of the country was formed; here, you will traverse the red-brick Freedom Trail, where you will see the hall that housed the country’s first-ever town meeting and many more historic sites. Admire the bronzing leaves of Vermont’s lush trees as you travel to Stowe, where the real Von Trapp family of ‘The Sound of Music’ chose to live — and where you will stay. In Montpelier, visit a maple syrup farm where you can taste the sweet golden liquid tapped straight from the trees. Ride a gondola at Loon Mountain Resort into New Hampshire’s White Mountains and see as far as Canada. See Maine’s oldest lighthouse in Portland, then celebrate your trip with a decadent fresh lobster dinner.
