Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: London – Falmouth

Fly into Logan International Airport in Boston and pick up your rental car before making the hour and 20 minute drive south to Falmouth on Cape Cod. This evening, stretch your legs with a walk along the beach and perhaps enjoy a meal in one of Falmouth’s many restaurants. Stay 1 night at the Inn on the Square, Falmouth (or similar).

Day 2: Falmouth – Martha’s Vineyard (approx. 5 miles plus ferry)

It’s just a short drive this morning to Woods Hole ferry terminal where you’ll drive aboard the Steamship Authority’s ferry for a 45 minute crossing to Martha’s Vineyard. Once you’ve arrived, make your way to your hotel before heading out to explore this upscale resort island, nicknamed "Hollywood East", thanks to its status as a favourite summertime haven for many celebrities. Stay 3 nights at Mansion House Hotel (or similar).


Days 3 - 4: Martha’s Vineyard

)You have two full days to relax and enjoy the laid back pace of Martha’s Vineyard, with its six independent towns, stunning beaches and photogenic lighthouses. ‘Down-island’ is the bustling, trendy eastern half of the Vineyard where the rich and famous like to play, whilst ‘up-island’ is made up of sleepy towns and quiet beaches. There are plenty of activities to choose from, whether you want to go horse-riding along the beach at sunset, scuba dive in search of sunken schooners or take a ferry to nearby Nantucket for boutique shopping along pretty cobbled streets.

Day 5: Martha’s Vineyard – Plymouth – Newport, RI (approx. 95 miles)

Retrace your steps today and catch the ferry back to the mainland. From Woods Hole, drive to Plymouth, ‘America’s hometown’. Here you can see the Mayflower II, a reconstruction of the original ship that brought the first pilgrims to the New World and Plymouth Rock, where they first stepped. From here, make your way to the historic resort town of Newport, Rhode Island. Stay 2 nights at the Newport Beach Hotel & Suites (or similar).

Day 6: Newport

Newport was a major 18th century seaport but now the city is famous for its stately mansions and high number of colonial buildings. Why not take a tour along Ocean Drive and ‘Millionaire’s Row’ to see the summer cottages of the Gilded Age? You might also like to visit historic mansions like The Breakers and Marble House, both owned by the Vanderbilt family. Newport’s Brick Marketplace and waterfront area are also crammed with boutique shops and tempting restaurants.

Day 7: Newport - Boston - London 

Leave Newport early this morning so that you have time to get a taster of the city of Boston before your flight later today. Perhaps walk along the Freedom Trail to see the famous landmarks and buildings associated with the American Revolution or do some last minute souvenir shopping before dropping your hire car back to the airport and catching a flight back to the UK.
