New England Tour – 8 Days in Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts

New England Tour - Maine 1Spring has officially sprung here in the Northern Hemisphere and many people are thinking about their summer trips or vacations. We don’t usually travel much during June, July, or August because it is just TOO hot and too many people. However, I also know a lot of people do so I wanted to share this amazing New England tour that I would actually love to take myself. It seems like a slower pace which is also great for those of us in the 55+ group. This 8-day tour takes you to some of the most breathtaking parts of Vermont, the Maine Coast, and Massachusetts.  It sounds like a blast. Here are all the details.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Quincy Market – Boston, Massachusetts

Faneuil Hall-BldgThis time last year I was preparing for a crazy end of September. We spent a week in St. Louis exploring some amazing places as the Laumier Sculpture Garden and their Botanical Gardens. As soon as that trip was over, I was heading to Boston, Massachusetts for a business trip. I was thrilled to check out the beautiful Public Gardens and the busy Harbor and Long Wharf Pier. While at the pier, I walked across the way to check out Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Quincy Market. Both are very unique and have a lot of history.

Boston Public Garden and Park – Boston Massachusetts

Boston Public Garden - 1In September of 2017, while working in the Boston area, I was able to explore a few areas such as the Long Wharf Pier and Harbor. Another place I really enjoyed visiting for a few hours was the Boston Public Garden. My intention was to make a quick tour through the park, then head over to the Boston Commons. However, this didn’t happen for a few reasons: First I was running out of daylight. Secondly, it is a very large garden. But mostly, it was because it is such an amazing park.
