Sightseeing Highlights

Boston
As the site of the famous "tea party," Boston is known for its sense of independence. Founded in the 1630s as a city in one of the original 13 colonies, Boston has a long history from the War of Independence and America's struggle to freedom from British rule. Famed sites include the Old North Church made famous by Paul Revere, Faneuil Hall, the "Watch Out for Ducklings" statues and the USS Constitution or Old Ironsides.

Woodstock
This quintessential Vermont village is characterized by its Village Green, general store, farmers market and covered bridge. Framed by fire colored leaves in the fall, Woodstock is a perfect place to stroll, shop or dine.

Quechee Gorge
Vermont's "Little Grand Canyon" and deepest gorge was formed from glacial activity approx. 13,000 years ago. During the 19th century the park land was part of a woolen mill which employed much of the town. Wool from the mill was made to make Major League Baseball uniforms and blankets for the U.S. Armed Forces. Today the gorge is a beautiful natural area from where visitors can camp, hike or see breathtaking fall foliage.

Stowe
Graced with a historic Main Street, white steepled church and surrounded with wonderful views, Stowe was settled in 1794. Essentially a farming community, Stowe became a tourist destination by the Civil War era. Though nicknamed the Ski Capital of the East, autumn allows visitors to enjoy local products such as apple cider and maple syrup in its many eateries.

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory
An entrepreneurial success story which began in 1978, Ben and Jerry's ice cream has become part of Americana. Started after following a $5 correspondence course in ice cream making and with a $12,000 investment, this corporation first opened in a renovated gas station in Burlington, VT. With a commitment to natural ingredients, famous favors included the creatively named "Jerry Garcia" and "Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough."

Rocks Estate
Nestled in the heart of New Hampshire's famed White Mountains, the Rocks Estate is a reserve featuring a Christmas tree farm and Maple Sugar Museum. From mid February to the middle of spring, maple trees are tapped for the creation of maple syrup. With the help of a virtual tour and museum, visitors can learn of this centuries-old NH tradition.

North Conway
Located in the heart of the Mt. Washington Valley, North Conway is the commercial centerpiece of the area. Noted for its shops, North Conway is a place to purchase New England crafts or factory outlet goods.

Kancamagus Highway
Traverse the 34 mile long (54 km) famous highway for a meandering view of New Hamphire's scenery. The "KANC," as it is known, has no evidence of the modern world. Restaurants, hotels and gas stations are left behind providing visitors the chance to focus on nature's glory.

Lake Winnipesaukee Cruise
This largest lake in New Hampshire is distinguished by crystal clear water and dotted with over 200 islands. Nearby attractions include a Rhine River styled castle, a family fun beach and a scenic railway. The lake has been a tourist destination for over a century drawing visitors from nearby Boston and New York.

Boothbay Harbor
Boothbay Harbor is a beautiful town in the state of Maine. It is located on a peninsula in the Gulf, and in the summer, the town is a popular yachting and tourist destination, offering great views of the ocean, tidal rivers and lighthouses. Boating and yachting along the coast are both popular things to do as you can view lighthouses from the water as well as see various wildlife and the summer homes that reside on the coast.

Lobster Dinner
When the first European settlers reached North America, lobsters would reportedly wash up on shore in piles up to two feet high. Routinely fed to prisoners, slaves, apprentices and children during the Colonial era and beyond, lobster became known as the poor man's protein. Considered a delicacy by WW II, American lobsters (or Maine lobsters) can grow up to 40 lbs (18 kg) and be 3 feet long (91 cm).
