Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Known for its historic sites and stunning fall foliage, New England in the fall delights all of the senses. On this fall foliage tour, experience the spectacular beauty of autumn displays in Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Your colorful tour of New England begins in the historic city of Boston. You’ll head north into Maine, for a visit to the cobblestones of the maritime city of Portland—complete with lighthouses and lobster fisherman. Head to Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island—gateway to the woodlands and rocky sea shores of Acadia National Park. Keep an eye out for local residents, including moose, beaver, whales, and seabirds on your drive through the park. Your guided tour of New England continues inland through the Longfellow Mountains to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Step back in time through classic covered bridges, quaint towns, and forests bursting with seasonal colors. Next, you’ll drive along New Hampshire’s Kancamagus Scenic Byway through the fragrant pine and colorful deciduous forests of Franconia Notch and White Mountain National Forest. You’ll be enthralled with the kaleidoscope of fall colors presented by birch, beech, and maple trees on your way to Vermont’s oldest sugarhouse. From Stowe—popular ski resort and summer favorite—you’ll visit Woodstock, Billings Farm & Museum, and Quechee Gorge State Park. Enjoy an overnight stay in Brattleboro on the shores of the Connecticut River. Venture on to Rhode Island—the ‘Ocean State’—for a sightseeing tour of the Newport harbor town to hear about its fascinating history. You’ll return to Boston for a sightseeing adventure to trace the steps of Paul Revere near the Old North Church; see the Boston Common; the old State House; and other locations that are significant to U.S. history along Boston’s Freedom Trail. From colorful American history to colorful fall scenes beyond compare, your escorted vacation in New England is a trip to create memories for all seasons!

A beautiful drive through Franconia Notch, along New Hampshire’s Kancamagus Scenic Byway, and the White Mountain National Forest, is renowned for its fall leaf viewing. The “Kanc,” as the locals call it, remains unspoiled by homes or service stations, allowing you to watch the maple, beech, and birch trees burst into a brilliant kaleidoscope of yellows, browns, oranges, and reds.

I very much enjoyed this Cosmos Tour of New England. We hit peak season for leaves and it was absolutely beautiful.

Well organized trip. Ample time to explore on one's own. Choice of most hotels was good. Tour director and bus driver really knowledgeable and helpful. Great group of international travelers.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the New England Traditions tour. The experience well exceeded our expectations. New England fall foliage was really beautiful. On this tour we also learned so much about American history. We visited several museums, and visited some historic sites as well. Group travel is a very inexpensive way to see and enjoy places.

The trip was well organized and helpful. I met many nice people from other countries and had a very good time. It was the perfect time to see the beautiful colors along the scenic drive.
