New England


The wildest nature experiences

combined with the most popular cities!

SUGGESTION:

Authentic New England

New England is something special. This was where the first English pilgrims originally settled, which you can feel when you move around in the landscape and charming cities. The states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont provide a framework for New England, located in the northeastern United States. The main city of Boston is referred to as New York’s younger brother, but the city has its own special character, and can easily stand on its own as a metropolis – and even a very nice one at that. Boston is also referred to as a university town, and is known for its many universities, including Harvard University. Boston is also known for its annual marathon, which is the oldest in the world. A holiday to New England offers plenty of beautiful countrysides and fantastic cities.

Itinerary

DAY 1 - 4: NEW YORK

Your holiday starts in New York where you will spend the first three nights. The many experiences can easily fly right by, so be sure to take advantage of the time you have in New York – especially if it’s your first visit!

New York has experiences and activities for everyone. If this is your first holiday to New York we recommend that you use the first day to truly be a ‘tourist’ and see New York’s many ‘must sees’, including the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge and the 9/11 Memorial. Most of these experiences are both easy and cheap. The New York skyline has to be experienced from sea level because it gives you the impression of just how large it is. You can take a ferry to Staten Island and enjoy the beautiful view of Manhattan – the trip is free, and sails past the Statue of Liberty as well.

“Get lost”! Another great way to experience New York is to actually “get lost”. Just walking around the streets and seeing where you end up is a great way to experience New York. New York’s streets are easy to navigate because all the roads are parallel and marked with numbers , such as 5th avenue. This makes it easy to navigate because when you go north, the numbers go up and when you go south the numbers go down. Another great way to experience New York is by taking a hop-on-hop-off bus, where you see the city, and can hop-off and on most places on Manhattan. These buses are great for transportation, and give you a great overview of the city. The buses also drive across the Brooklyn Bridge which gives you the opportunity to see the Manhattan skyline lit up at night – a really beautiful sight.

Make sure to visit the different areas of the city to experience the differences in the neightborhoods. Visit Harlem, SoHo, the Meatpacking District, Chinatown, and a take walk on the Upper East side to see the large, stylish apartments.

DAY 4 – 6: BOSTON

(216 miles 4-hour drive)

Next stop is Boston, which is referred to as New York’s little brother – or the university town. Boston is known for its many universities, including Harvard University, which is probably the best known and also America’s oldest, where John F. Kennedy studied. Discover the many unique universities and the beautiful buildings that are found in Boston.

Use a half-day whale-watching from Boston’s coast. Have a nice day on the sunny deck and enjoy the beautiful views of the coast on your way out to sea, where you get close to humpback whales and pilot whales. Pay a visit to the New England Aquarium after the sailing trip and learn even more about the sea around Boston.

John F. Kennedy came from Boston and died at an untimely age. Today there is a museum dedicated to him. Visit the John F. Kenney Presidential Museum and Library, which holds things like pictures, films and objects from his former home. Definitely worth a visit for the history buffs.
Boston is unique in many ways, and is one of the most developed cities in the world. In 1635 it was the first city with a public school and in 1897 they developed an underground train – which we know today as the tube. New York copied the concept, more or less, a few years later. Spend a day walking around in Boston on your own “get lost” walk like in New York. It is a unique way to experience the city and the many contrasts that the city offers. In the midst of the city between skyscrapers you’ll find the green oasis of Boston Common, a lively park with art, flower fields and lakes. Just minutes from the park is the famous TV bar “Cheers” – at least the entrance, which you can see at the beginning of each episode.

DAY 6 – 7: GREEN MOUNTAIN

(194 miles – 3-hours-and-30-minute drive)

Next stop is a one-night stay in Green Mountain, which is a popular and beautiful tourist attraction located in the state of Vermont. The road to the Green Mountains is certainly not boring. You can drive by the witches city, Salem, half an hour north of Boston. During the period of 1692-93 the city was the scene of a major witch persecution, and you can hear the story of the witch-hunt at Salem Witch Museum.
Then you can drive onward to “America’s oldest seaport,” Gloucester, located a short drive from Salem. Here you can experience the Fisherman’s Memorial Statue and Fishermen’s Wives Memorial, two beautiful statues erected to commemorate the 10,000 sailors who lost their lives at sea. A last stop before the Green Mountains can be Shaker City in Canterbury, where you can experience Shake Rene, who like the Amish, lives in his own world.

Then you drive the last stretch through the real New England scenery under the classic covered bridges. When you arrive to the Green Mountains, it is possible to ride around the beautiful countryside on horseback, or you can swing by Smugglers’ Notch State Park, which offers great hiking and cycling trails, all in different lengths and difficulties.

DAY 7 – 8: FINGER LAKES

(245 miles – 4-hours-and-20-minute drive)
The scenic and unique Finger Lakes is your next destination. Finger Lakes is a group of 11 long and narrow islands that make up Finger Lakes located in the central part of the state of New York. The name, Finger Lakes, was given because the long lakes looks like fingers from the air. Try googling Finger Lakes on google maps and you will see how the lakes actually looks like fingers. At Finger Lakes you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings and try a cruise on one of the channels in a horse-drawn boat – just as they did 150 years ago. A visit to Finger Lakes is an exciting, different, and unique experience.

DAY 8 - 11: NIAGARA FALLS

(134 miles – 2-hours-and-15minute drive)
Spending two nights is a must at Niagara Falls, which is one of the most popular nature phenomena in the world, on par with the Grand Canyon and the Pyramids – and is one of the most famous in the world. Niagara Falls is three waterfalls, located on the border between the United States and Canada, and it is a place that should be visited at least once in your life. 2,800,000 liters of water falls from Niagara Falls … per second!

While in Niagara Falls, you can go on the Maid of the Mist and sail toward Niagara Falls, hearing the thunderous sound of the water and experiencing it up close. The sailing trip departs every 15 minutes and it’s a good idea to have a change of clothes with you because (even if you have rain cover on) you can get wet. The falls are best seen from the Canadian side.

DAY 11 - 14: WASHINGTON D.C.

(400 miles – 7-hours-and-15-minute drive)

Your holiday ends in the beautiful and historic Washington D.C., where you have your last three nights. The city is very different from New York and Boston. Although it is a big city, it feels more “open” and not nearly as rushed and city-like. You can feel that it is a serious town and many residents work in official positions. But it is not a dull city. Washington D.C. is a beautiful and unique city, with the possibility of many great and unique experiences.

The White House is a must see. Located centrally in the city, it is a good place to start. You can walk down to the Washington Monument – the tall, pointed pillar, which is a known symbol for the U.S.

From here you can keep walking and visit the various monuments, including the National Monument of World War II, Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The monuments give time for thought and are very beautiful at the same time.

Like the previous three cities on the tour, it’s also a good idea to go on a sightseeing bus in Washington, as you both experience the city and get stories about the things you pass on the way. Do a little shopping in Washington, as it is not similar to shopping in either New York or Boston, but more cozy and relaxed. In other words, Washington D.C. is a perfect last stop on the tour, where there is time and opportunity to be cultural, serious, relaxed and shop for your last American souvenirs. After three days in Washington you fly back to England.
