Cape Cod and Boston Fly

Day 1

PROVIDENCE • NEWPORT • THE BREAKERS • DINNER:

History, beauty, excitement – it’s all ahead of us as our Christian Tours motorcoach transports us to the Charlotte airport for our flight to Providence. Upon arrival in Providence, we will be met by a Christian Tours motorcoach and driver, then we’re off to the classy city of Newport. We’ll tour The Breakers, a 70-room mansion built by Cornelius Vanderbilt and acknowledged as the most elaborate of all the Newport summer homes. Having had a taste of the ‘good life’, we head for our overnight accommodations on beautiful Cape Cod for a three-night stay. (D)
Day 2

FERRY TO MARTHA’S VINEYARD • DINNER:

This morning we are in for a delightful experience as we cross Nantucket Sound by ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. The Vineyard is said to have been named by the English gentleman Bartholomew Gosnold for his daughter Martha. Because of the wild grapes he found growing here, he dubbed this vacation island a “vineyard.” The island, only some 25 miles long, is the site of several popular summer resort towns like Oak Bluffs, Menemsha, Edgartown, and Vineyard Haven. Although they are only a few miles apart, each little village and town has its own personality. Back on the mainland we’ll have dinner at one of the fine local restaurants. (D)
Day 3

CAPE COD GUIDED TOUR • PROVINCETOWN • WHALE WATCHING CRUISE • DINNER:

A local guide joins us this morning for a guided tour of Cape Cod, an area with a long neck situated between Cape Cod Bay and Nantucket Sound. Nowhere, it seems, has time passed more slowly than here in Cape Cod, with sunny beaches, marshlands, dunes, rugged coasts and quaint fishing villages. It was here that prosperous sea captains once built lavish homes and furnished them with priceless articles acquired on their many voyages abroad. We’ll follow the winding road up through the picturesque communities to Provincetown. A truly fascinating experience awaits us this afternoon as we take an expedition off the coast for a Whale Watching Cruise. Aweinspiring as well as educational, our ship’s crew will provide information on whale behavior, identification, and answer any questions you can come up with. As the great humpbacks glide up beside us, you’re sure to agree that whale watching is “witnessing the miraculous!” Now, what better way to end a day in Cape Cod than with a delicious dinner. (D)
Day 4

PLYMOUTH ROCK • MAYFLOWER II • PLIMOTH PATUXET • LUNCH • JOHN F. KENNEDY LIBRARY:

This morning we travel up the mainland of Massachusetts and visit Plymouth Rock, a granite boulder near the sea at Plymouth, Massachusetts. The date 1620 is carved on this rock. According to legend, this is the spot where the Mayflower pilgrims stepped ashore when they landed in the New World. The Mayflower II returned to Plymouth after a 3-year multi-million dollar restoration in 2020 and was the centerpiece of the 400th commemoration of the Pilgrims’ arrival. We tour this full scale reproduction. Next we travel to Plimoth Patuxet, a re-creation of the Pilgrims’ 1627 settlement. Plimoth Patuxet is an outdoor museum of the 17th century Atlantic village, featuring life as it was then, portrayed by “villagers” in their native setting. We’ve stepped back 350 years in time, so don’t be surprised at who you might bump into! We enjoy lunch today at Plimoth Patuxet. This afternoon we tour the museum at the John F. Kennedy Library, which is considered by many to be the most beautiful work of recent architecture in the country. We tour the library and relive the powerful story of the Kennedy years. Get a first hand experience as you enter the recreated world of Kennedy’s life, legacy and leadership. We check into our hotel for a two night stay. (L)

We follow Paul Reveres’ route and see the “Battle Trail.” We pass the homes of Hawthorne, Alcott and Emerson. Dinner is included at a popular area restaurant this evening. (D)
