BOSTON - SALEM - KENNEBUNKPORT - PORTLAND

Along the route north of Boston lies almost four centuries of history as well as some of the East Coast’s finest beaches and seascapes. Your first stop today is Salem, the site of the infamous 17th century witch trials and birthplace of American novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne. Continuing along the coast you’ll stop to gaze at Cape Neddick “Nubble” Lighthouse, the most photographed lighthouse in America.

Day 3

PORTLAND - BAR HARBOUR

The drive northeast on Route 1 from Portland to Bar Harbor is nothing short of enjoyable. Out the window you’ll see the state’s jagged coastline and rocky beaches lapped by rhythmic waves of the Atlantic. You’ll pass through quaint villages where local fishermen mark their grounds with colourful bouys prior to arriving in the small town of Bar Harbor. Known for its stunning coastal beauty, Bar Harbor has a world renowned ambiance that blends seashore community, Downeast character, and the famous Maine Lobster.

And nowhere is Newport’s natural beauty more on display than on its Cliff Walk. Here, between the pounding surf of the Atlantic Ocean and sprawling lawns, sit the famed Gilded Age mansions that once were the summer playgrounds for socialite families such as the Astor’s and Vanderbilt’s.
