Fall Colors of New England


Fall Colors of New England

If the thought of New England brings to mind images of picture-perfect villages, sleepy fishing towns, vast swathes of beaches and distinguished summer homes, this trip will not disappoint.

Trip highlights:

  • Set out along Boston’s Freedom Trail to see the historic sites; visit the Cape Cod seashore with its massive sand dunes and long sandy beaches.
  • Stop at Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks in Montpelier, Vermont, and taste “sugar on snow,” that is, hot maple sugar that turns to taffy when it’s drizzled over shaved ice (and served with a fresh doughnut or pickle).
  • Discover the quintessential New England town of North Conway, New Hampshire, full of historic buildings, quaint antique shops, bookstores and bakeries. Then go on to Portsmouth, near the mouth of the Piscataqua River, which runs along part of the New Hampshire-Maine state line.

Options that make it even more special:

  • Nature enthusiasts can hit the waters surrounding Plymouth, Massachusetts, to seek the humpback, minke and pilot whales that migrate here.
  • Visit The Breakers, a summer home in Newport, Rhode Island, once owned by the Vanderbilt family.

Spectacular Canyons and National Parks

Journey from Las Vegas to the granite faces of Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Along the way, visit the mighty Grand Canyon, the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, the geysers of Yellowstone National Park and much more.

Trip highlights:

  • Gaze in awe at Mount Rushmore, the massive sculpture depicting the faces of four U.S. presidents, and at Crazy Horse Memorial, the world’s largest mountain carving.
  • See the site of the Battle of the Little Bighorn; Lake Powell, the second largest human-made lake in the U.S.; and Monument Valley, an area sacred to the Navajo people.
  • If you love the wide-open outdoors, you’re in luck. Visit the wonders of Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Zion national parks.

Options that make it even more special:

  • For a real cowboy cookout experience, travel by horse-drawn wagon to beautiful Cache Creek Canyon, where you’re treated to a delicious Dutch oven dinner.
  • Gently float along a 10-mile stretch of the Snake River through Grand Teton National Park, accompanied by an experienced guide who shares stories and points out wildlife.
Costa Rica Adventure in Rainforest


Costa Rica Adventure

Rainforests teeming with wildlife plus golden beaches and an active volcano are all yours to experience on this adventure.

  • Admire views of the Gulf of Nicoya as you ride through coffee and sugarcane plantations, keeping an eye out for monkeys and toucans.
  • Look for wildlife as you ride a gondola through the trees, and then feel the thrill as you zip line 650 feet above the rainforest floor.
Spain offers a perfect intersection of architecture and history

Life in Spain is the fiesta you’ve been looking for: Afternoon siestas give way to the fiery rhythms of the flamenco, late-night tapas bars and illuminated plazas filled with patrons ready for a night on the town.
