DAY 2 BOSTON
Today you will relive history with a journey back in time to the Revolutionary War era as you follow the route of Paul Revere as he warned the countryside with his infamous cry of "the British are coming!" Travel along the famous Battle Road Trail and see the homes of renowned literary greats, like Hawthorne, Alcott, and Emerson in the charming town of Concord. Stand on Lexington Green, where Captain Jonathan Parker and 77 Minutemen fiercely stood their ground against 700 Redcoats. Visit the Old North Bridge, where the “shot heard round the world" was fired. Hang out in Harvard Yard and stroll through Cambridge Common, where George Washington took control of the Continental Army. Drive along "Tory Row" past the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

DAY 4 BOSTON > PORTLAND

The pubs, shops, and restaurants of downtown Portland are always buzzing with tourists, locals, and fishermen alike, creating a convivial atmosphere where everyone is welcomed. Portland's vibrant performing arts scene, amazing cuisine, and eclectic group of shops are all part of why locals call this city “New England's Best Kept Secret.” There's so much to do here—from food and wine festivals to trolley tours to art gallery exhibits—that you can easily spend an entire vacation in Portland.

DAY 5 PORTLAND
Explore Portland today on your Land and Sea Discovery Tour.
