Fall Foliage

October 7, 2019 to October 15, 2019

New England is steeped in history and known for its amazing fall foliage, and on this tour, you’ll have a chance to experience the spectacular beauty and historic places. A sightseeing tour in Boston highlights landmarks that were pivotal to the United States’ history, and a visit to Cornelius Vanderbilt’s mansion, The Breakers, gives you a taste for life in a bygone era.

History is not all you’ll experience on this marvelous tour, you’ll also see spectacular beauty and amazing fall foliage. In Maine, visit Acadia National Park, one of America’s most visited national parks where you’ll take a carriage ride before enjoying a local treat at the historic Jordan Pond Restaurant located inside the park—a special experience offered by Globus. In New Hampshire, travel to the scenic White Mountains, New England’s greatest range and premier outdoor playground, to enjoy the Raven Interpretive Program. Take a beautiful drive through Franconia Notch, a New Hampshire region with breathtaking scenery, and along the Kancamagus Highway, well known as one of the country’s best fall foliage viewing areas. Throughout your tour, marvel at the scenic drives and stunning fall colors full of blazing red, orange, and yellow leaves (if Mother Nature permits).

In addition to the carriage ride in Acadia National Park, we have included some other fun experiences on this fall foliage tour. Enjoy a Colonial-style dinner at the historic Salem Cross Inn in Sturbridge and a lobster bake in the seaside town of Bar Harbor. With the gorgeous scenery, interesting historic sights, and fun adventures, it’s a vacation not to be missed!

Depart Milwaukee for Boston. Welcome to “Beantown!” At 6 pm, meet your traveling companions for a welcome drink. Your Tour Director will prepare you for your upcoming adventure.
