The New England’s six states are beautiful year around not just in the fall although September and October see the leaves turn to amazing shades of gold, scarlet, purple, and yellow. This fly drive holiday will show you the best of the area: the charming towns, the covered bridges, the picturesque white churches and all that is loved about New England.
This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.
We used Frontier Travel to book our honeymoon. We were given all the information we needed and everything ran seamlessly. We had a fantastic time, the hotels and lodges were perfect. Thank you for organising such a brilliant trip!

to Bar Harbor
Today you will follow the coast north to Bar Harbor. On the way, you should stop in Camden to stroll through the historic district or take a windjammer sail. You could also extend your holiday with a three or four day cruise on one of these lovely coasters. Bar Harbor has much of interest despite a 1947 fire which destroyed much of the village. Walk along Millionaires Row, visit the Abbe Museum to learn about the Wabanki tribe or the Dorr Museum of Natural History, dine at a waterfront restaurant that doubles as a working lobster and fish pier. The following day you should spend among the rolling green hills and forests of Acadia National Park.

On your way south into Massachusetts, we would suggest you stop at the Morse Farm Maple Sugar works and detour at Cornish to go over the Cornish-Window Covered bridge, the longest wooden covered bridge in the U.S.A. You might also like to stop at Hildene, the Lincoln Family home. Your home for the next two nights will be in the heart of the beautiful Berkshires just a couple of miles from Tanglewood. If you are lucky enough to be there during the season and would like tickets, please let us know and we will do our best to get you some. Other attractions of the area are the Norman Rockwell Museum and the Hancock Shaker Village.

Travel though Connecticut’s Litchfield County to Mystic to discover America’s living maritime museum and historic village. Mystic Seaport has an enormous collection of historic watercraft, including the 19th century Charles W. Morgan, the USA’s only surviving wooden whaling ship, and the USS Nautilus, the first nuclear-powered submarine. Your evening could be spent on board the schooner Argia for a cruise into Long Island Sound for a sunset sail.

You have a short drive today, just an hour will get you to Newport, Rhode Island. No city in America crams more history into its quaint streets, from colonial days to the Gilded Age mansions. You will need at least a full day to scratch the surface of all that Newport has to offer. Included in your holiday is a Mansion Duo ticket but you might also like to visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame, St Mary’s, the church where JFK got married, or wander around the wooden city with more than 300 original wooden structures. Newport is also known as the Sailing Capital of the World and you can book a sail on a classic schooner.
2 nights Newport

Leave Newport and head for the South Shore Beach. Three centuries of history beckon in Little Compton, where homes are grand and meadows manicured. On the village green are a post office, library, school, and Wilbur’s General Store (since 1893).
Take highway 6, rather than the interstate and you will pass through lots of very pretty little villages as you head for Hyannis where the Kennedy family still maintain a home. It is a good base from which to explore Cape Cod and you may well want to put in an extra night here. Included in the cost of your holiday is a whale watching trip from Provincetown which will give you the chance to explore the art galleries, restaurants and beautiful beaces of P’town as it is known locally. You might also want to take the ferry over to Martha’s Vineyard from Hyannis.
2 nights Hyannis

Time to return to Boston for your overnight flight home. On the way, do stop at the Plimoth Plantation; a totally brilliant living history museum where the Pilgrim Fathers first landed in 1620. See the Mayflower II, the Plimoth Grist Mill amongst many fascinating attractions. This will be a memorable last day.
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.
