Boston is a splendid city for adults and children alike. Not only are there the museums such as Children’s Museum, the Science Museum, the Boston Aquarium and the Franklin Park Zoo — all of which are wonderful but there are carousels, the famed Swans to ride on Boston Common and Castle Island to explore as well.

Collect your car and head out of town towards Mystic in Connecticut for 3 nights. This two-hour drive could be split in Providence, the capital of Rhode Island. In Mystic, there is lots to see and do. Mystic Seaport is a living history recreation of a 19th-century whaling port and home to the Charles W Morgan, the last wooden whaleship in the world. Watch as sails are rigged on tall ships and newspapers are printed; help make a rope or dip candles. Nearby are Mystic Aquarium and the deep-sea Institute for Exploration.
TIP – Buy a Mystic Pass Card to save time and money. In nearby Groton, go aboard USS Nautilus at the Submarine Force Museum on the Thames River: the world’s first nuclear powered vessel, the first ship to go to the North Pole, the first submarine to journey ‘20,000 Leagues under the sea’ and in Ledyard, the Mashantucket Pequot Museum is the USA’s largest Native American museum, with interactive exhibits that bring the tribe’s heritage and culture to life.

Take the curvy south coast road along South County to Newport RI to spend another 3 nights. Take the high-speed ferry across to Block Island, explore Fort Adams, designed by Simon Bernard who had worked for Napoleon Bonaparte, sail around the harbour on an America’s cup schooner and for the tennis mad children (or parents) the International tennis Hall of Fame where you can actually play on the hallowed grass courts.

Cape Cod & The Islands
Explore the coast of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket. Five days will never be enough to explore all that Cape Cod and the Islands have to offer, but will be enough to whet the appetite and to relax before having to return home.
There are lots of accommodation options on the Cape many of which have wonderful family facilities.
5 nights in Cape Cod

Time to return home. You could stop at the Plymouth Plantation en route to the airport. You can discover the stories of the early settlers and the Mayflower II in this fascinating living history museum.
J Smith - Travelled New York to Toronto
I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
