Description

Departing from your Boston in comfort, your guide will bring you over the Cape Cod Canal and into the quaint Village of Sandwich, oldest town on Cape (1639). Visit the Cape Cod Canal Museum and marvel at this immense feat of engineering. Then visit a commercial lobster pound, a big industry in Massachusetts. Hold a lobster weighing 5-10 pounds! Stop for a photo of the iconic Sandwich Boardwalk, stretching over a thousand feet, crossing salt marshes and creeks to the ocean. You will travel through the village to a working 1650s grist mill grinding maize into corn flour for hundreds of years. Perhaps you'll want to purchase a bag of corn meal to bring back home. Visit the Sandwich Glass Museum, displaying thousands of pieces of pressed and blown glass in memory of the the pressed glass factory that put Sandwich on the map back in the 1800s. Some of the glass is mixed with 'radium', giving it a unique glow and color. Heading back off Cape, your next destination is the Town of Plymouth, home of “Mainstreet USA'. Your guide will bring you to The Pilgrim Hall Museum, America's oldest museum. There you will see original artifacts and furnishings of the Pilgrims; including the bassinet of the first born in America, Peregrine White. Discover what it was like to brave crossing the Atlantic Ocean as you walk the Mayflower II, an exacting replica of the original 180-ton ship that sailed 3,300 to the New World. Take the picture of a lifetime posing next to Plymouth Rock, where brave souls like Mary Chilton disembarked, seeking to establish a tenuous foothold in search of religious freedom. Walk on Leiden Street, America's oldest to see the Church of the Pilgrimage. Gawk at the Forefathers Statue, tallest solid granite monument in the world. Then sit back and relax as your guide brings you back to Boston with memories of a lifetime. (Lunch time is set-aside at a local (inexpensive) restaurant in Sandwich or Plymouth.)
