NEW Visual Storytelling

This itinerary is infinitely customizable and will be tailored to suit your personal interests and schedule!

Boston, Salem, and Cape Cod, Massachusetts—all sound like a song. When you arrive in Boston, explore. The Freedom Trail winds through the city, connecting 16 sites such as Paul Revere’s house and the Old North Church. Head to Faneuil Hall—the cradle of liberty—particularly glorious in the autumn, blazing with reds and oranges. Infamous Salem is nearby, home of witch trials, great shops, and old Clipper Ships.

Gloucester, a pleasant drive from Boston, is in the heart of Cape Ann. Imagine unique ocean adventures, fresh seafood dinners, art, and whale watching. Two other notables are Provincetown and the Cape Cod National Seashore—40 miles of beaches, dunes and nature trails. Provincetown is as far as you can go on the Cape, and artists began making their homes here a century ago. Breathe in that fresh, salt air!
