Day 1

Today we depart for Cape Cod. On our way, we will stop for rest and lunch before meeting our local guide in Sandwich, MA, the oldest town in Cape Cod.

This annual event features a vast collection of hand-blown glass from Cape Cod artists along with live glass blowing demonstrations. Enroute to our lodging we will be dazzled by the holiday lights along Old King's Highway. Our lodging for the next two evenings will be located in Hyannis. Dinner will be included at a local restaurant.


Day 2

This morning after a continental breakfast we will depart with our local guide for a full-day tour including the Nantucket Noel Annual Christmas Stroll. From the time you step onto the island, holiday enchantment surrounds you! Hundreds of Christmas Trees line Main Street where costumed carolers fill the air with familiar Christmas songs. A variety of musical entertainment, performances, and holiday treats await you as you stroll along visiting the island merchants, museums, and attractions. The Nantucket Town Crier, in full historic regalia, will ring in the Annual Stroll and lead the way to the wharf to meet Santa arriving on a Coast Guard Cutter. Lunch will be on your own. Later this afternoon, we will enjoy the Hyannis Harbor Boat Lighting festivities, music, food, and colorfully lit boats cruising the harbor. Dinner this evening will be included at a local restaurant.


Day 3

Today after our continental breakfast, we will check-out and depart for Newport. Upon arrival we will meet our local guide and enjoy a driving tour of Newport. Enter the world of the Vanderbilts, Astors, and the wealthiest of gilded age tycoons as we travel Newport's fabulous Bellevue Avenue, peppered with stunning mansions and gardens. Take in the rugged beauty of Ten-Mile Ocean Drive featuring magnificent ocean views and historic Fort Adams. Next, we will have a self-guided tour of the Vanderbilt-owned Marble House Mansion. This lavish mansion was built with 500,000 cubic feet of American, Italian, and African Marbles which will be beautifully decorated in holiday décor. We will take time for lunch on our own at Brick Marketplace, located on beautiful Newport Harbor. This afternoon we will visit Breakers Mansion for Sparkling Lights at the Breakers. Stroll along illuminated pathways lined with decorative light displays and festive music. Inside, visit the 15 foot poinsettia tree in the Grand Hall and the ornate themed decorations in each room. Dinner will be included before we check-in to our lodging in Middletown, RI.


Day 4

After an included continental breakfast, we will check-out and depart for the Blithewold Mansion. Enjoy a guided tour and tea at this 33-acre summer estate. During the holidays, Blithewold transforms into a dazzling display celebrating the magic of Christmas. Each room of the mansion is filled with elaborate holiday decorations and the gardens become a glimmering winter wonderland. After our visit we will depart for home. With stops for lunch and rest enroute home, arrival is scheduled for early evening.
