Globus Cape Cod & The Islands(AO)

8 Day Tour from Boston to Boston 
Get acquainted with the history, beauty, and coastal traditions of Cape Cod and its neighboring islands on this fascinating vacation. Your tour begins in Boston with guided sightseeing of “Bean Town’s” most famous sights, a harbor cruise, and two overnights. Visit Newport, Rhode Island, for a guided tour of Cornelius Vanderbilt’s opulent home, the Breakers mansion.

On the Cape, spend four nights at the Red Jacket Beach Resort, located on the beautiful waters of Nantucket Sound. Take ferries to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, with sightseeing on both islands. You’ll also have free time to explore both on your own. In Nantucket, enjoy the included visit to the Whaling Museum, explore the art galleries, and browse the shops. On Martha’s Vineyard, take a walk along the ocean, admire the elegant homes, and browse the village stores. You’ll also travel the end of the Cape to Provincetown, a vibrant village steeped in history. You’ll also learn what life was like for the Pilgrims and the true story of Thanksgiving at Plimoth Plantation, a re-creation of a small farming and maritime village built by the Pilgrims in the 17th century—a special experience offered by Globus.

Other out-of-the-ordinary adventures Globus has included on this Cape Cod & the Islands tour are a visit to Flax Pond Farms, a working cranberry bog, and a traditional seafood dinner.
