GLOBUS 2021: New England and the Hudson Valley (AE)
11 Day Tour from Boston to New York
From the Salem Witch Trials to the Headless Horseman, New England is home to some of the nation's oldest settings and stories. Fact, fiction, and fantastic scenery abound on this vacation to New England and the Hudson Valley. Boston and Concord's most significant sights of the American Revolution are balanced with the peaceful vistas of coastal Maine, rural New Hampshire, and mountainous Vermont. Charming seaport villages, bucolic covered bridges, and rolling maple syrup farms sweeten the storylines across America's historic East Coast. The plot thickens as you ferry across Lake Champlain to immerse yourself in the scene stealers of New York and Massachusetts, including the lakeside resort of Lake Placid, the picturesque Berkshire Mountains, and the orchard- and vineyard-dotted riverbanks of the Hudson Valley. Stand up straight as you visit the waterfront U.S. Military Academy at West Point Military. You wouldn't want to miss the spectacular views.
