A blaze of colonial colour
Every year, the millions of trees that shade the northeast corner of the USA signal the arrival of Fall with an explosion of red, purple and gold. As we journey from Manhattan Island to Boston and beautiful New England, you'll witness their splendour, framed against the still-blue skies.
Fly to New York and transfer by coach to your hotel for a two-night stay in New Jersey.
Discover Manhattan today and marvel at the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, bustling Times Square and the green acres of Central Park. Join our optional tour and enjoy stunning views of the city from Top of the Rock, atop Rockefeller Center.
Heading north today, towards the beautiful New England states, we'll make a stop at the Yankee Candle flagship store in Deerfield. Browse the candles, and Christmas and Hallowe'en novelties, and relax in the cafe, before we continue to Mount Snow, our base for the night.
A marvellous day awaits as we delve deeper into the Green Mountain State of Vermont, where the maples, cedars and aspens are ablaze with red, orange and golden leaves. Visit the quintessential New England village of Woodstock with its covered bridge and traditional Main Street before we cross the Kancamagus Highway - often voted best spot for foliage viewing - heading to North Conway and on to Bethel, Maine, for two nights.
Soak up the stunning colours and rolling, forested hills of the New England scenery on our optional tour today as you travel the lanes of northern Maine, and join the Mount Washington Cog Railway for a ride to the summit of the highest peak in New England.
This evening, head out from your hotel a guided drive in search of moose.
Journey south to the prosperous seafaring city of Portland, with its waterfront wharves and fine seafood restaurants. Then continue, via the exclusive Bush Family retreat of Kennebunkport, to Nantasket Beach, south of Boston and across Quincy Bay, and our base for the next two nights.
Travel into Boston, and enjoy the city today. Explore Quincy Market, the Harbourside and the wonderful New England Aquarium, and cross the Charles River to the home of Harvard University. Alternatively, join our optional guided city tour to see where America's Founding Fathers once strolled.
A final day sees you head to New York for your return overnight flight. On your way, call in Plymouth, where the historic streets of 'America's Hometown' were once trodden by the first settlers, and fashionable Newport, Rhode Island, where 'weekenders' cottages' are opulent mansions.
Arrive back home, after a wonderful holiday.
