Day 2 Boston - Boothbay Harbor, Maine - Portland
This morning you travel through the seaside community of Kennebunkport, along spectacular Ocean Drive. See Walker’s Point, former President George H. W. Bush’s summer home, which is situated on a rocky promontory. This afternoon, enjoy a relaxing cruise through Boothbay Harbor for spectacular views of the coast, including lighthouses, summer homes and even local wildlife, such as the harbor seals.

Day 5 North Conway - Stowe, Vermont - Manchester
Drive through Vermont, the “Green Mountain State.” Traditional white steeple churches, quaint villages and tree-covered mountainsides dot the charming landscape of your journey. A stop at the Cold Hollow Cider Mill will teach you how this historic mill makes their delicious cider. You will witness apples being transformed into cider the old-fashioned way – using a rack and cloth press – a process that has been passed down for generations. A tour of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory teaches you about the ice cream process and ends with a delicious sample of their sweet treats. In Woodstock, a covered bridge in the town center – along with the beautifully restored Georgian houses that surround the town green – add credence to its reputation as “the quintessential New England village.” Later, visit the impressive 165' deep, mile-long Quechee Gorge before continuing to Equinox Resort & Spa for a 2-night stay in the bucolic town of Manchester.
