Fall on Cape Cod: Day Trip from Boston and Cruise
If you're staying in downtown Boston, prearrange for hotel pickup when you book this tour. Otherwise, meet in Hyannis on Cape Cod. From Boston, your sightseeing tour starts with a drive by luxury coach south through Quincy, passing the Adams Mansion and the birthplace of two American presidents. Admire New England's fall scenery and learn about the sights you see from your informative guide during your ride. After crossing the Cape Cod Canal, you'll have time to explore Sandwich or visit the Sandwich Glass Museum. This interesting museum collects, preserves and interprets the history of the town of Sandwich, the oldest town on Cape Cod. Next, visit the nearby historical Dexter Grist Mill, which has been around for more than three centuries. Situated in a beautiful, lush green setting, this quaint corn mill is an interesting site to explore.

Have free time for lunch (own expense) before arriving in Hyannis Port, where you'll visit a memorial to John F Kennedy. To cap off your Cape Cod day trip, hop aboard a relaxing, scenic sightseeing cruise on Lewis Bay. Enjoy onboard narration as you soak up views of the waterfront.
