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, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Your colorful tour of New England begins in the historic city of Boston. You’ll head north into Maine, for a visit to the charming cobblestoned streets 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 seashores of Acadia National Park. Keep an eye out for local residents, including 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 woodlands 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 where you’ll visit a sugarhouse that’s been producing maple syrup for eight generations! From Burlington—a thriving New England college town—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. Spend two nights in Hyannis on Cape Cod including a day trip to the tip of the Cape to explore the small community of Provincetown. 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!

    Welcome to New England! Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.
  2. Day 2
    Head north into Maine, famous for its beautiful coastal region, including lighthouses and lobster fishermen.

    Meals:   Breakfast
  3. Day 3
    Bar Harbor is situated on Mount Desert Island, home of the ruggedly beautiful Acadia National Park. Drive through woodlands, past beaver lodges, rocky beaches, and rounded mountains ascending the glacier-scoured granite peak to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the Atlantic Coast and one of the first to see the sunrise. Your afternoon is free to explore the quaint village of Bar Harbor on your own. You may decide to walk the Shore Path, take a nature cruise, or visit the shops, galleries, and boutiques that line the streets.

    Explore the roads less travelled of inland Maine, past pristine farmland, blueberry barrens and forests noted for their vivid colors during the autumn. Stop to enjoy the small-town hospitality in Farmington, settled by veterans of the American Revolution. Overnight at the Sunday River Resort located in classic New England. (CB)
  5. Day 5
    Today, you are greeted with picture postcard views of New Hampshire’s charming rivers as you drive along Kancamagus Scenic Byway, renowned for its fall leaf viewing. The “Kanc,” as the locals call it, remains unspoiled by homes or service stations for its entire length. A drive through White Mountain National Forest brings you to Franconia Notch. In Montpelier, visit an eighth-generation sugarhouse and learn about traditional maple sugaring before ending the day in Burlington, Vermont’s largest city on the shores of Lake Champlain.
  6. Day 6
    This morning visit Woodstock, its village green reminiscent of 19th-century England. Next, explore Vermont’s rural heritage at Billings Farm & Museum, a living museum and working dairy farm, home to a famous herd of dairy cows. Marvel at the views in Quechee Gorge State Park, Vermont’s little Grand Canyon, and return to simpler times with a visit to the charming Vermont Country Store in Rockingham. End today with an overnight in Brattleboro. (CB)
  7. Day 7
    Drive across Massachusetts today to Plymouth, the first landing place of the Mayflower Pilgrims in 1620, and see Plymouth Rock. Then cross the Cape Cod Canal, the widest sea-level canal in the world, on your way to the town of Hyannis, on the Cape Cod peninsula. Hyannis is known internationally as the “All-American City” and where you will find the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum, award-winning restaurants, and quaint storefronts. (CB)
  8. Day 8
    Today, drive the arm of the Cape, to the old whaling port of Provincetown. This eclectic seaside town is a tiny haven often referred to as “Land’s End.” Stroll MacMillan Pier with its fishing boats and craft shacks, browse the colorful shops of Commercial Street, or dig into a lobster roll, Portuguese pastry, or some creamy clam chowder. Return to Hyannis, where the remainder of your time on the Cape is free for independent activities.
  9. Day 9

This was my 16th tour with Cosmos/Globus. I always feel taken care of.

While Cosmos hotels are not expected to be in luxury category, I can say that all were clean, safe, and comfortable with friendly and welcoming staff. While we have taken tours with Globus, Trafalgar, CIE, and a few others, we found our guide and driver on this tour to be of the same expertise as any other tours we have taken (if not more so). They were always aiming to please and prepared us so well with information and instructions to assure the plans were carried out as smoothly as possible. We were fortunate to have a good group of on-time travelers who bonded well with each other which also added to the enjoyment of the entire trip.

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.
