Do the colored leaves of autumn fall foliage bring back memories or give you a sense of necessity to wander, to take a long way home, to add the detour to your trek?
New England landscapes are bold, full of impressionist colors that will delight and energize you. Add to that stories by Ken Burns and you may awaken the visionary in you. Taking a tour should be an excursion for the mind and body with visual excitement and we’ve added exclusively filmed vignettes by filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan that will share personal stories and take you behind-the-scenes of their films.
Do you love American history, the places where it was made, then re-made by poets, painters, and icon-makers? Do you get teary-eyed or chicken skin thinking about the Revolutionary heart of Concord, the Berkshire retreats of Norman Rockwell and Edith Wharton, and the Gilded Age mountain resort at Bretton Woods? We take you on the road through lush forests and fertile fields sweet with fragrant air, rich in tradition and brimming with antique charm. You can search out the elusive soul of New England from Boston to Bar Harbor, from fishing boats to the summit of Mount Washington and the wilderness of Acadia National Park… in the taste of fresh lobster, mom’s memories of lobster rolls and maple syrup.
If you haven’t considered a tour of Fall Foliage with a Grand New England tour, let us lead you on an American discovery with 12-days, leave the driving to us with hotels, meals, and guides sharing and creating memories with family, friends and making new friends. No passport required, bring your journal or we’ll provide you one to press leaves, write poems and keep memories fresh!
