Cape Cod - Plymouth - Boston
Today begins with a visit to Plymouth, the town where English colonists first made a home in New England. See Plymouth Rock, where according to tradition, the passengers of the Mayflower first set foot in the "New World," views of Plymouth Harbor and the Mayflower II, a replica of the original Mayflower (onboard admission not included). Returning to Boston, you'll retrace the steps of the Freedom Trail, which may include a stroll beside Boston Common, King's Chapel, the Boston Massacre site, and numerous pubs and taverns where America's Founding Fathers toasted freedom. Enjoy lunch at one of Boston's many restaurants where you may wish to try a steaming hot cup of traditional New England Clam Chowder (not included). Afterward, explore Boston's first marketplace from the 1800's, Quincy Market, which today is home to boutiques, cafes and shops.
