Sightseeing Highlights

Providence
One of the oldest cities in the U.S., Providence is the capital of Rhode Island. Voted One of America's Favorite cities by a well-known travel magazine, Providence's small size masks a wealth of culture in the form of art galleries, fine dining establishments and esteemed institutes of higher learning. With its well preserved architecture from the 17-19th centuries, to its historic churches, Providence offers visitors glimpses of the past and future.

Newport
A major 18th-century port city, Newport, Rhode Island has the highest concentration of colonial buildings in the United States. However, the town is best known for being the summer resort of the newly rich American millionaires from the mid 19th century to the early 20th century. This Gilded Age was often expressed with sumptuous mansions called "cottages".

Vanderbilt and modeled after the Petit Trianon at Versailles -OR- tour Rosecliff, the opulent former residence of silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs known for her lavish parties.

Block Island, RI
A charming island smaller than 10-square miles, this favorite New England vacation spot is known for its picturesque gingerbread houses, sandy beaches, and iconic clay cliffs known as the Mohegan Bluffs. With an easy ferry ride across the Atlantic you 'll find a nautical oasis.

Cranberry Bog
Bogs, or marshes, are beds of low lying vines layered with sand, peat, gravel and clay. Originally formed as a result of glacial deposits, undamaged cranberry vines may survive indefinitely. Cranberries grow in the northern region of the U.S. with some vines being over 100 years old.

Plymouth Rock
The traditional site of landing by the Mayflower Pilgrims who founded the Plymouth colony in 1620. While no mention of "The Rock" is listed until over 100 years after the landing it has long represented the beginning of U.S. settlement.

Cape Cod, MA
Just south of the metropolis of Boston lies a island with 300 miles of shoreline characterized with quaint villages, sand dunes and bicycle trails. Cape Cod has become a popular escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Join a tradition of artists and industrialists who revered the Cape for its beautiful sunsets, natural preserves and fresh seafood.

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).

Martha's Vineyard, MA
A small island south of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard was settled by the English in the 1640s. Today the island is marked with 18th-century homes, gingerbread cottages, beaches and lighthouses. Enjoy lobster rolls or homemade ice cream while shopping for souvenirs, such as scrimshaw, in the island's boutiques.

Provincetown
Before Plymouth, the Pilgrims explored this land on the tip of Cape Cod. Already known when they arrived for its abundance of codfish, Provincetown has developed into summer resort well renowned for its individual artistic expression. A small village holds fine dining, quaint shops and small art galleries.

Hyannis
The commercial and transportation hub of Cape Cod, many refer to Hyannis as the "Capital of the Cape". Due to its large harbor, Hyannis is popular for both recreational boating and commercial fishing. Many Americans associate the town with the nearby Kennedy compound and its political dynasty.

Nantucket, MA
Glacially formed, 30 miles off the coast of Massachusetts, this half-moon-shaped island takes its name from a Native American word meaning "far away place". Nantucket was a whale hunting center during the 1830s-1840s. Somewhat decimated by the decreased whaling industry, Nantucket has emerged as a popular art and summer resort as well as a home for wealthy Northeasterners.
