Travel along the rugged, rocky and beautiful seacoast of New England’s Atlantic coast. This full-day, fully-narrated tour departs at 9:30AM, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays between June and mid-October. You will travel north by motorcoach, hitting the quaint hotspots of Massachusetts’ North Shore before continuing north to the rocky coastline of New Hampshire and into Maine. Here’s a look at the highlights of your New England Seacoast Tour:

Boston’s North Shore: The North Shore of Massachusetts is a rocky coastal area that is an important historic and cultural area for the entire New England region. The North Shore is home to the city of Salem (site of the Salem Witch Trials), and also the city of Gloucester (the setting for “A Perfect Storm”). The area features some of New England’s best beaches, and is an important hub for fishing and tourism.

Hampton Beach, New Hampshire: This village sits on the Atlantic Ocean, around 15 miles south of Portsmouth. The town is known as the busiest beach community in the state, and is home to Ocean Boulevard, with its quaint boardwalk, and also is home to the famous Hampton Beach Seafood Festival.

Kennebunk Village: This quaint coastal village in York County (first settled in 1621) is adjacent to Kennebunkport, and is the site of early colonial shipbuilders’ homes, the famous 1799 Kennebunk Inn, and sprawling natural trails and blueberry fields.

Kennebunkport: This slightly larger town sits on the Kennebunk River, about a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, and like Kennebunk, was historically a shipbuilding and fishing village. The area now draws in an impressive number of summer tourists, and is home to quaint shops, restaurants, cafes, and art galleries. Perhaps most notably, Kennebunkport is the summer home of former president George H. W. Bush.

Walker’s Point: Also known as “The Bush Compound”, this extravagant Kennebunkport home has been the family retreat of the Walker/Bush family since the late 19th century, and was the childhood home of former president George H.W. Bush. As an adult, the former president spent summers with his wife and children (including George W. Bush) at the waterfront estate.

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This tour was like a vacation in itself. I got to see so much of and about the northeast seacoast and had a wonderful meal true to the area. I loved this tour and am so glad that we invested one of our Boston vacation days in this memorable tour day. And...a special thanks to the tour company for making the radio call to stop the bus that was leaving before we got there. We got detained behind a wreck on the tollway and arrived 6 minutes late--but they afforded us the ability to board the bus---thank you!
