Our 3 hotel options offer a choice of standard hotels more of a value focus, upgraded hotels for perhaps improved locations and better rooms, or our ‘Inns’ package offering luxury city hotels and upgrades to authentic New England Inns or more charming unique hotels where available.

Day 1 – Boston Arrival

You will at Boston Logan Airport after a 7 hour 30 minute flight non-stop from the U.K. Due to high parking charges in Boston we do not recommend collecting your rental car on arrival, a better bet is to collect it from a convenient downtown location when you leave Boston after 2 nights – We arrange all this for you.

We can arrange shared shuttle transfers or private car transfers but it’s quite easy to take a regulated meter cab from the official tax rank outside the terminal which will cost you approximately $30.

Depending on your arrival time you might like to take a walk into the Boston Public Garden in the centre of the city, this would be a great way to relax after your flight. Overnight Boston.

Superior: Sheraton Boston
Inns: The Bostonian

Day 2 – Boston

Boston is a great walking city and the Freedom Trail is the highlight of Boston for visitors. The 2.5 mile red brick walking trail leads you to 16 nationally significant historic sites, every one an authentic American treasure. Preserved and dedicated by the citizens of Boston in 1958, when the wrecking ball threatened several important places, the Freedom Trail today is a unique collection of museums, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, a ship, and historic markers that tell the story of the American Revolution.

You can take a self-guided tour or one of the many other tours which include the hop on hop off trolley bus tours. Be sure to stop at the most important sites like Old Ironsides, the Paul Revere House and the Old North Church. Plan to stop and eat at Faneuil Hall, once the primary meeting place for America’s revolutionaries. It is now a bustling market of restaurants and shops. You will find Colonial and Revolutionary history on every step of the Freedom Trail, charging up Bunker Hill, and on the cobbled streets of Beacon Hill.

Lively and informative costumed characters travel the Trail during the summer. These characters are fun and engaging for children of all ages (from 5 to 75!) and act as ambassadors to the era of America’s founding and the birth of the country’s freedom. Boston is a shopping mecca, head to historic Back Bay to stock up on fashion favourites at Copley Place – a dazzling mixed-use complex with over 70 stores and restaurants – or bag a bargain at Wrentham Village Premium Outlets®, New England’s largest upscale outlet center. Overnight – Boston.

Today you will collect your rental car, the location is 5 minutes’ walk from your hotel. And head for Essex National Heritage Area Scenic Byway which takes you north through Salem, site of the famous witch trials in 1694, Marblehead, Ipswich, and Newburyport. From there, you’ll be travelling the Coastal Byway to Hampton Beach and Portsmouth on your way to Kennebunkport. The Kennebunks are very old coastal towns, settled in 1620. The state of Maine remained a part of the Colony of Massachusetts and Kennebunk did not become a state until 1820. If you’re up for a short walk at this point, the Kennebunk National Register Historic District Village walk begins at the Brick Store Museum and continues on Main Street. If there’s time, the Kennebunkport History Center is located at 125 North Street. Five buildings, including a shipwright’s office, comprise the history center campus and present a good perspective of seafaring life in the Massachusetts colony. If you have time when travelling, you may wish to call in to Kittery Premium Outlets® to top up your suitcase with the latest designer gear at bargain prices. Overnight – Kennebunkport.

This was to be a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. It was memorable for the range of new experiences, the lovely places we stayed, your kind gift of the Boston excursions card and the matchless hospitality of the Liberty Inn at Yarmouth

Chisholm Party (New England)

I just wanted to thank you once again for all the planning, booking and organising that you did on our behalf. Each of the hotels were great and the hotel in Niagara had the best view of any hotel I’ve stayed in around the world

Watts Party (New England & Eastern Canada)

The Autumn colours were magnificent and we really enjoyed seeing the Pumpkin Festival celebrations in New England and then when we crossed the border, the Farmers markets and preparations for Thanksgiving in Canada.
