DAY 1:  MAY 18, 2020

Travel today will take you to the sandy shores of Cape Cod.  With 559.6 miles of unspoiled coastline, Cape Cod is home to 15 distinctive towns, historic attraction, arts and culture, quaint shops and endless array of must sees.  In early November 1620, after two grueling months at sea, the Mayflower approached the tip of Cape Cod.  For two days they tried to sail south but the treacherous waters along Cape’s outer coast forced them to return to the tip’s safe harbour.  Accommodations for the next four nights will be at the Bayside Resort Hotel located in West Yarmouth, MA.  (D)

DAY 2:  MAY 19, 2020

This morning a local guide will meet you at the hotel.  Travel historic Route 6A, the Old King’s Highway, a scenic byway winding through centuries of Cape Cod history.  View the Eastham Windmill, a Cape Cod Lighthouse and visit the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor’s Center.  Sand dunes and the ocean surround you as you approach “Land’s End” – Provincetown.  Formerly known as the “Province Lands” the Pilgrims landed here first before they decided to settle across the Bay in Plymouth.  The story started here in 1620 where the Pilgrims spent their first five weeks exploring Cape Cod.  It was here that they signed the Mayflower Compact, the catalyst for American democracy.  Visit the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum.  You will see a diorama of the Mayflower Compact being signed aboard the Mayflower in Provincetown Harbor.  This afternoon you will travel to the “south side” of the Cape to the seaside village of Chatham.  View beautiful landscapes, the Chatham Light, and visit the Atwood House Museum.  (B,D)

DAY 3: MAY 20, 2020

The local guide will meet you at the hotel and you will travel to Plymouth, one of the country’s first settlements and home of America’s Pilgrim Fathers.  A picture stop will be made at the Forefather’s Monument, the largest, solid granite monument in the United States.  It stands facing the harbour, welcoming those who come by water.  Learn about the science and technology of grinding corn and the ecology of the brook that has powered the mill through the centuries at Plimoth Grist Mill.  You will also get to see sites such as the Governor William Bradford Statue, Hedge House, Pilgrim Mother Statue, Coles Hill, Massasoit Statue, Immigrant Monument, United American Indian of New England Plaque, Pilgrim Maiden Statue, Howland House, Spooner House, 1820 Courthouse, Pilgrim Sarcophagus and the Mayflower Society.  Photo stops will be made at Plymouth Rock, the traditional site of disembarkation of the Pilgrims and at the Mayflower II, a reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to the New World.  Board a Lobster Tales Cruise to learn about the many creatures that live-in Plymouth Harbor.  Experience a “hands on” approach to see how lobsters are harvested from their natural environment.  Next you will visit Pilgrim Hall Museum before enjoying a traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings at the Plantation.  Here you will enjoy a “Dress a Pilgrim” demonstration during dinner.  (B, D)

DAY 4:  MAY 21, 2020

Today the local guide will meet you at the hotel before conducting another full day of touring.  Enjoy a one-hour Hyannis Harbor Cruise.  Get to know the local landmarks, popular beaches and other points of interest on your way for a waterfront view of the Kennedy Campground.  You will also have time at your leisure in Hyannis for lunch on your own.  This afternoon you will travel to Sandwich, the oldest town on Cape Cod.  Hear stories of the Puritans, Quakers, Shawme, Dexter Grist Mill, Hoxie House and the First Church of Christ.  Next you will visit the Sandwich Glass Museum.  View sparkling exhibits that describe the transformation of a small farming community into one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of the 19th century glass.  Watch molten glass, drawn from the furnace, blown and pressed into exquisite shapes and visit the distinctive museum shop.  (B)

DAY 5:  MAY 22, 2020

With Cape Cod’s historic, maritime character, beaches and some of the most beautiful sites, it will leave you wanting to come back time and time again.  Travel home making regular rest and meal stops along the way.  An early evening return home is anticipated.  (B)
