Day 1: Arrive Boston On arrival, transfer independently to your hotel where you will meet your ATI Tour Director, the rest of the day is at leisure. Holiday Inn Brookline Day 2: Boston – Portland Along the route north of Boston lies almost 4 centuries of history as well as some of the East Coast’s finest beaches and seascapes. Stop at Salem, the site of the infamous 17th Century witch trials then continue along the coast to gaze at Cape Neddick “Nubble” Lighthouse, the most photographed lighthouse in America. Before reaching Portland, stop in Kennebunkport, home to the palatial summer estates of prominent politicians, including the 41st U.S. President, George Herbert Walker Bush. Best Western Merry Manor Inn Day 3: Portland – Bar Harbor Continue northeast on Route 1 from Portland to Bar Harbor, as you pass through the state’s jagged coastline and rocky beaches lapped by the rhythmic waves of the Atlantic. You’ll pass through quaint villages where local fishermen mark their grounds with colourful buoys prior to arriving in the small fishing town of Bar Harbor. That evening there is the option to join in a traditional lobster dinner. Wonderview Inn / Acadia Inn Day 4: Bar Harbor – White Mountains Your journey will take you inland towards the spectacular scenery of the White Mountains, the “rooftop of New England,” whose landscape is dotted with enchanting covered bridges, picturesque towns and villages, and historic sites. En route experience breathtaking mountain vistas, pristine forestry and world-renowned foliage. The Lodge at Bretton Woods Day 5: White Mountains – Green Mountains Traverse the White Mountains that divide the states of New Hampshire and Vermont to Stowe, a classic 200-year-old village nestled beside Vermont’s highest peak, majestic Mt. Mansfield. Continue through Burlington on Lake Champlain and take in the stunning views of open meadows, farmlands and forests of Vermont’s Green Mountains. Best Western Rutland

Day 6: Green Mountains – Newport Leaving Vermont head to Newport, Rhode Island, home to spectacular coastal scenery and awe-inspiring architecture, it is considered by many a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. Visit one of the opulent mansions that once were the summer playgrounds for socialite families such as the Astor’s and Vanderbilt’s in a bygone era. That evening, a classic New England Clam Bake brings the shore straight to your table (optional, own expense). (BD) From the opulence of Newport, you’ll continue to the unspoiled natural beauty of Cape Cod where picturesque beaches with high sand dunes, never- ending sea, lighthouses rising along the coast, and gorgeous sunsets await.
