The Visalia Chamber of Commerce invites you to experience the rich history and culture of New England. The eight-day trip through the Northeastern United States is a chance to enjoy the charming and historically rich states in all the glory of their beautiful fall colors. There is a special slideshow presentation on Feb. 16 at 12 p.m. at the Visalia Chamber of Commerce office to cover all the information about the trip. This is an exciting opportunity and is not to be missed!
The trip will take place from Oct. 11 to Oct. 18, 2016. The tour includes several amenities including round-trip airfare from Fresno Air Terminal as well as hotels and several meals.
The getaway begins with a two-night stay in the heart of Boston, Mass. While there, enjoy a sightseeing tour of historic locations and visit the Faneuil Hall Marketplace to see street performers and local handiwork. The tour then moves to Vermont, the “Green Mountain State.” Visit Woodstock and the 165-foot deep, mile-long Quechee Gorge before continuing on to Stowe. In Stowe, take a trip to the Cold Hollow Cider Mill to see how apples are made into cider using a rack and cloth press. Later, enjoy a tour of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory and taste samples of the famous treat.
The tour then moves to New Hampshire. Bask in the gorgeous New England countryside as you travel through the White Mountains on your way to North Conway. Along the way, tour the farm at the Rocks Estate, home to the North Country Conservation & Education Center, to learn about maple sugaring in the region. Enjoy a leisurely cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire’s largest lake, before visiting Wolfeboro. The final stage of the tour takes you to Boothbay Harbor in Maine. Enjoy another cruise through the Harbor to view local wildlife, incredible coastlines, and picturesque lighthouses, culminating in a dinner of fresh native lobster. The next day, travel through Kennebunkport, and visit former President George H. W. Bush’s summer home, Walker’s Point, on the way back to the Boston airport.
