Title
Classic Fall Foliage

Vacation Overview
New England is steeped in history and known for its amazing fall foliage, and on this fall foliage tour you’ll have a chance to experience the spectacular beauty and historic places. A sightseeing tour in Boston highlights landmarks that were pivotal to the United States’ history, and a visit to Cornelius Vanderbilt’s mansion, The Breakers, gives you a taste for life in a bygone era. History is not all you’ll experience on this marvelous fall foliage tour. You’ll also see spectacular beauty and amazing fall foliage. In Maine, visit Acadia National Park, one of America’s most visited national parks, where you’ll take a carriage ride before enjoying a local treat at the historic Jordan Pond Restaurant located inside the park—a special experience offered by Globus. In New Hampshire, travel to the scenic White Mountains, New England’s greatest range and premier outdoor playground, and enjoy the Raven Interpretive Program. Take a beautiful drive through Franconia Notch, a New Hampshire region with breathtaking scenery, and along the Kancamagus Highway, well known as one of the country’s best fall foliage viewing areas. Throughout your tour, marvel at the scenic drives and stunning fall colors full of blazing red, orange, and yellow leaves (if Mother Nature permits). In addition to the carriage ride in Acadia National Park, Globus has included some other fun experiences on this fall foliage tour. Enjoy a Colonial-style dinner at the historic Salem Cross Inn in Sturbridge and a lobster bake in the seaside town of Bar Harbor. With the gorgeous scenery, interesting historic sights, and fun adventures, it’s a vacation not to be missed!

Day 1:
Arrive in Boston. Welcome to “Bean Town!” At 6 pm, meet your traveling companions for a welcome drink. Your Tour Director will prepare you for your upcoming adventure.

Day 2:
Boston–Portland–Bar Harbor. Head north via New Hampshire’s short shoreline and along Maine’s rocky coast to Portland, one of New England’s most famous cities. Stroll down the cobblestone streets of Portland’s famous Old Port Exchange, lined with its many boutiques, coffee houses, and art galleries. The next two nights are in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine’s oldest summer resort. Dinner tonight is a typical [LF] LOBSTER BAKE, featuring Maine lobster, steamed mussels, and delicious corn-on-the-cob. (B,D)

Day 3:
Bar Harbor. Excursion to Acadia National Park. Morning is at leisure to pursue your favorite interests. Maybe take a stroll around the waterfront with its many galleries and boutiques. Nowhere along the Atlantic seaboard is the coast as picturesque as in ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, one of America’s most visited national parks. This afternoon, take the scenic park road for spectacular panoramas from the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the continental U.S. to see the sunrise. Enjoy a short [LF] CARRIAGE RIDE along the world-famous carriage roads in Acadia National Park, designed and built by John D.

This evening, enjoy a [LF] Colonial-style dinner at the historic SALEM CROSS INN. See the prime rib roasted “to a turn,” as the only known authentic Roasting Jack still operating in America rotates slowly over a crackling fire, or stir the chowder as it bubbles in the cast-iron cauldron. Be sure to save room for the freshly whipped cream—the perfect complement to New England’s best apple pie. (B,D)

Southbridge–Mystic Seaport–Newport. This morning, visit STURBRIDGE VILLAGE, a 19th-century living history museum filled with farmers, craftsmen, and fascinating characters.

On to Rhode Island, the “Ocean State.” (B)

Day 8:
Newport. Today, enjoy a Newport orientation tour and see the first state house, the nation’s oldest synagogue, and the city’s oldest meeting house and library. Afterward, explore the extravagant lifestyle of a bygone era when visiting THE BREAKERS, shipping magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt’s turn-of-the-century mansion. Your afternoon is free for exploring on your own. This evening, your Tour Director hosts a special farewell dinner at a waterfront restaurant. (B,D)
