See Boston like never before during an autumn escape to this historic city, often called The Cradle of Liberty. Our new itinerary combines Bean Town’s most famous sites with unique experiences and, of course, great food! Spend two nights at the YOTEL, opened just three years ago in the heart of the seaport district, steps from the bustling HarborWalk.
Day 1 - By The Wayside (L,D)
Once a stagecoach stop, arrive for lunch at the Wayside Inn, offering hospitality to travelers since 1716! On a guided driving tour of Boston, see the city’s most famous landmarks including Boston Common, Faneuil Hall, The Old State House and Copp’s Hill.
Disembark to visit the picturesque Beacon Hill and for a tour of Old North Church, the site of Paul Revere’s “one if by land, two if by sea” signal. Enjoy a taste of the city comes during an early dinner at the award-winning Union Oyster House.
Finish the day with a complimentary glass of wine or beer at the hotel’s rooftop terrace with stunning views of the Boston skyline.
Day 2 – Plymouth Harbor Cruise and The 400th Anniversary of The Mayflower (B, D)
Stroll the paths of our forefathers in Plymouth, the first home of the pilgrims. On a guided driving tour, learn about the beginning of our country. What led the
pilgrims to come to America? Is Plymouth really the rock they stepped on? Find out as we tour Brewster Gardens, Leyden Street, Cole’s Hill and Town Square, with stops at Plymouth Rock and the Forefather’s Monument.
This afternoon, cruise the waterfront to see firsthand why the pilgrims chose
Plymouth Harbor, still considered one of the prettiest harbors in the world!
To commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival to our shores, step aboard your second ship of the day, the full-scale reproduction of the Mayflower II. The ship that brought the English colonists to the New World, the Mayflower is an inspiring and powerful symbol of freedom!
Tonight, it’s a taste of two cultures during dinner hosted by a costumed museum interpreter. Presented at Plimoth Plantation, step back in time during this traditional dinner featuring authentic Native American and Colonial foods.
