Get acquainted with the history, beauty, and coastal traditions of Cape Cod and its neighbouring islands on this fascinating holiday. Your tour begins in Boston with guided sightseeing of “Bean Town’s” most famous sights, a harbour cruise, and two overnights. Also overnight in Newport, Rhode Island, and visit Cornelius Vanderbilt’s opulent The Breakers mansion.

In Hyannis, a favourite Cape Cod resort town, spend four nights at the Red Jacket Beach Resort, located on the beautiful waters of Nantucket Sound. From Hyannis, 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. From Hyannis, you’ll also travel to Provincetown and Cape Cod National Seashore, a 40-mile stretch of unspoiled sandy beach.

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 lobster & seafood bake. You’ll also learn what life was like for the Pilgrims at Plimoth Plantation, a re-creation of a small farming and maritime village built by the Pilgrims in the 17th century.
