New England Fall Foliage

Summit Mount Washington aboard the Cog Railway

Ride the rails from Massachusetts to Maine and back on this seven-night journey.

Beginning in Boston, see the Old North Church where Paul Revere got the signal to start his famous ride, tour the restored Boston Tea Party ships, and wander historic Beacon Hill.

Leaving Bean Town, travel to North Conway—a city bordering New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Enjoy breathtaking vistas aboard the Cog Railway as you summit Mount Washington—the highest peak in the northeast.

Return to North Conway and board the Conway Scenic Railroad for a nostalgic ride through the Mount Washington Valley countryside.

Next, ride a bus from North Conway to Burlington, Vermont, along the Kancamagus Highway. This three-hour drive offers unparalleled views of the Quechee Gorge, "Vermont's Little Grand Canyon," and the opportunity to participate in hands-on demonstrations at the Billings Farm & Museum in Woodstock.

Just outside Burlington, view the impressive collection of American art at the Shelburne Museum and watch apples turn to cider at the Cold Hollow Cider Mill. Lastly, pay a visit to the home of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, founded in 1978 in a renovated gas station.

In Portland, Maine, take a scenic cruise around Casco Bay before snapping an obligatory photo in front of the famed Portland Head Lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth.

Before concluding your trip back in Boston, get a taste of Maine with a farewell lobster dinner.
