Rails & Tales of New Hampshire

Rails & Tales of New Hampshire

New England's fall foliage is legendary. Across the region, leaves turn from green to gold, scarlet, purple, and orange. You can look at all the pictures you want, but you will never truly experience what New Hampshire has to offer during the fall foliage season unless you come and experience it for yourself.

Day 1

Take in the beauty of New Hampshire in the fall as we travel to our accommodations in Plymouth, NH. Dinner is included at a local restaurant.


Day 2

Following breakfast we'll meet our local guide and head to the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center. Here, a Naturalist will present a wildlife program about native New Hampshire animals, their habitats, where they live, and how they survive. We will then head to the Mount Washington Hotel, which sits at the base of Mount Washington. Here we'll have a guided tour of the hotel followed by lunch in the main dining room. After lunch, we will visit The Basin. This granite "pothole" is 20 feet in diameter at the base of a waterfall. It is believed to have been eroded 15,000 years ago when the North American ice sheet was melting and has been smoothed by small stones and sand whirled around by the Pemigewasset River. Next, we'll visit Fadden's General Store & Maple Sugarhouse. Learn how maple syrup was made in the past and how it is made today. This sugarhouse won Best Maple Syrup in North America! Our last stop will be a visit to Franconia Notch Visitor's Center followed by an included dinner.

Tips for Perkiomen motorcoach drivers and tour escorts are not included in the price of this tour. We feel that these gratuities should be extended on an individual basis and dictated by the level of service provided.

Motorcoach seating is assigned at the time of reservation but cannot be guaranteed. Although we do our best to keep each traveler in the seat assigned at the time of reservation, there are times that it is necessary to move seat locations. Please be sure to verify your final seat number(s) with your driver at the time of boarding. Historically, daily seat rotation was practiced on most multi-day tours. We have suspended this practice for a period of time. Seat rotation will be explained by your driver or tour escort if reinstated.
