The East: Rich Histories and Seductive Charms
We'll begin where the U.S. began. You've long heard about the birth of the nation and the gently rolling hills outside Boston, Massachusetts, that were the stage of the American Revolution. It's quite a moving experience to witness firsthand the historic places that carry echoes of pre- and post-colonial days. It all comes startlingly to life in New England, from the first settlement at Plymouth Rock to the living museum of Old Sturbridge Village.
Of course, Boston was the hub of it all. Legendary sites like the Old North Church, Beacon Hill, and the Boston Commons—the oldest public park in the country—take you back to inspiring moments in history. There's more inspiration in Hyannis on Cape Cod, lined with beautiful sand beaches and home of the Kennedy Compound, witness to so much national pride and tragedy. Massachusetts also nurtured some world-renowned literary and artistic talents, as you can see at Herman Melville's Arrowhead; Edith Wharton's home, the Mount; and the Norman Rockwell Museum—each one providing incredible insight into the lives of artists whose work has stood the test of time.
Those lovely rolling hills of Massachusetts rise into dramatic mountains in Vermont and New Hampshire. Traversing these stunningly beautiful states—much of them protected U.S. Forest Land—you'll pause to explore charming, steepled New England villages and admire sweeping vistas of granite cliffs and hills blanketed in evergreen.
A bit farther south, there are more colonial-era sites—and one especially moving Civil War battlefield. Philadelphia played as critical role as Boston in revolutionary days. The founding fathers met here to draft the Declaration of Independence and the city served as a temporary capital while Washington DC was under construction. Today, the "City of Brotherly Love" is a revered cultural center and home to the Liberty Bell, an iconic symbol of freedom.

8 Day Classic National Parks, Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone & Grand Teton
The itinerary was excellent and well-planned. We traveled a lot of miles in a relatively short time of 8 days in 4 different states but I never felt rushed or missed anything.
Our tour manager, Rick, was very knowledgeable with national parks as well as all the cities along the way. His commentary was excellent and always included the history, war, geography, food, and cultural background of each destination. I learned so much of American history during the tour. He was very friendly, caring, helpful and always accessible.
