About the tour
Behold the brilliance of nature's seasonal finale in New England this fall. For 6 days, find yourself surrounded by sights of gold, rust and crimson as you travel through leaf-peeping hotspots in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. Begin with time in Boston, where a guided tour acquaints you with the most historically significant sites of the city, including Quincy Market, which has served Boston since 1826. A deluxe motorcoach takes us out of the city and along one of the most famous fall foliage byways in the United States, the Kancamagus Highway, en route to Whitefield, NH. Enjoy the colorful vistas of fall by train, as we ride the Mt. Washington Cog Railway, and from the water aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen cruise of Lake Champlain. During our time in Vermont, we also visit a cold cider mill and enjoy some time in the town of Stowe, where a gondola ride allows us to take in the beauty of autumn from yet another perspective: above. A ride aboard Amtrak's Vermonter presents even more of the seasonal splendor of the East. As we arrive in Lebanon, enjoy a look at "Vermont's Little Grand Canyon," the Quechee Gorge, before returning to Boston. Using several modes of transportation and visiting some of the most popular destinations in the region, this journey makes it easy to see why New England is a leaf peeper's dream.
