Escape to New England this summer and relax on the seashore of Cape Cod. Village Green tours, quaint quilt shops, and magnificent mansions inspire your creativity each day. A fresh lobster roll and a visit to Nantucket & Provincetown make this trip unforgettable.
Explore Providence on your own, starting from our hotel in the heart of historic “Downcity,” before meeting your Tour Manager and traveling companions at our Welcome Meeting.
After breakfast (included daily), be ready for a tour of Providence that showcases this capital city’s 19th-century mercantile buildings in the Federal and Victorian architectural styles. Away from the downtown core, explore the city’s southern waterfront that forms the hub of festivals and social gatherings. Enjoy free time for lunch on Federal Hill, Providence’s famous Italian neighborhood of cafés, restaurants and markets. After lunch, enjoy shopping the 5,000 bolts of the local quilt shop before visiting the Museum of Work and Culture. B
We travel now along Narragansett Bay to Newport, then follow Ocean Drive past coastal scenery and opulent homes before touring The Breakers Mansion, Newport’s most magnificent Gilded Age “summer cottage.” After lunch in Newport, we depart for Cape Cod’s Red Jacket Beach Resort, our home for four nights. B, D
Our visit to Hyannis includes stopping at the Kennedy Memorial before traveling through quaint villages on Old King’s Highway. In Sandwich, the Cape’s oldest town, see historic Hoxie House and the Dexter Grist Mill, which still grinds grain for sale. Heritage Museum and Gardens includes a 1908 Looff carousel and a barn filled with antique and classic cars—including Gary Cooper’s 1930 Duesenberg. Finish the afternoon at Tumbleweed Quilts & Fabrics for shopping and needlework tips. B, D
Today we cruise to enchanting Nantucket Island, world whaling capital in the 1800s, to savor cobblestone streets, shingled cottages and historic shipowners’ houses. Our guided island tour takes in beaches, lighthouses, tidy villages and coastal scenery. There’s free time to explore shops and galleries before returning to the mainland for another delicious dinner. B, D
After seeing charming Chatham with a stop at Chatham Light, we’ll drive through Cape Cod National Seashore for spectacular ocean views. There’s time in Provincetown to browse in waterfront galleries and shops before our scenic and historical dunes tour. We’ll enjoy a Cocktail Reception before savoring a traditional lobster feast at our Farewell Dinner. B, D
Swap addresses with new friends on the ride to Plimoth Plantation. A visit to the Plantation’s Craft Center offers a rare glimpse at the Plimoth Jacket, an ambitious project to re-create a woman’s embroidered waistcoat of the early 1600s. These 17th century garments were exclusive for women of court, the nobility and those who had achieved a certain level of wealth. Midday, we enjoy lunch on our own along the Plymouth Waterfront. You’ll say goodbye to new friends once we arrive at Providence’s T.F. Green Airport. B
