Things to do in New England

Whether you’re looking to relax on the coast, spend a few days hiking in the mountains, or explore Boston’s role in the American Revolution, our specialists are able to advise you on things to do in New England, depending on your interests.

In Boston, you can follow the Freedom Trail, which passes 16 of the city’s historical landmarks, in the company of a local guide. At Provincetown on the tip of Cape Cod, you can round off a 4x4 ride over the sand dunes with a traditional clam bake, cooked on the beach. On the water, take a whale-watching cruise to view humpbacks or sail from Newport on an America's Cup yacht. These are just a few of the things to experience in New England that our specialists can include in your tailor-made itinerary.
