Travel Agent News for Insight Vacations and Fall Travel

Space still available on remarkable autumn journeys to New England and the Mid-Atlantic



RYE, N.Y., August 2, 2018 – Traveling around the East Coast of the United States during the autumn months has its unique advantages: landscapes are ablaze with stunning fall foliage, the temperatures are milder and more comfortable, and the crowds have largely thinned out, which means visitors have more room to maneuver and more time to connect with locals.


Insight Vacations, the leader in premium escorted journeys, offers several remarkable small-group itineraries to the East Coast that immerse guests in the history, cuisine and natural wonders of New England and the mid-Atlantic.


Guests discover authentic regional flavors like local micro-brews and freshly caught seafood; explore iconic attractions and hidden gems with Local Experts, such as the battlefield of Gettysburg and the charming seaside town of Sandwich, Massachusetts; and meet fascinating locals who provide a deeper understanding of destinations like Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Each hand-crafted itinerary also includes accommodation at stylish hotels at the center of the action, business class transportation in luxury coaches, and the personal services of an expert Travel Director.


It’s not too late to book one of the following stylish East Coast itineraries that feature special last-minute pricing:


Boston, Cape Cod and the Islands: From bustling Boston, to the mansions of Newport, to the salty shores of Nantucket, this 8-day journey highlights New England’s unique culture, cuisine and coastal appeal. The trip starts in Beantown, where guests get a front row seat to the American Revolution as they visit attractions along the Freedom Trail, the North End and the historic Back Bay. Then it’s on to Newport, Rhode Island, the queen of summer resort towns. Guests tour a Gilded Era mansion that once belonged to one of America’s wealthiest families, then set off on a scenic sail in an 80-foot schooner. Heading into Cape Cod, guests stop first in Sandwich and learn about the town’s fascinating maritime heritage, then hop on a ferry and explore the gingerbread cottages and pristine beaches of Martha’s Vineyard. Back on the mainland, guests admire the idyllic Cape Cod National Seashore as they travel to chic Provincetown on the tip of the Cape, then they overnight at a seaside hotel in blissful Falmouth. A day trip to laid-back Nantucket island is on the itinerary on the penultimate day, and on the final day guests meet a local cranberry bog farmer and learn about this truly American berry before making their way back to Boston. Priced at $3,095 pp except for the October 5th departure, which features a 10% discount and is priced at just $2,780 pp.
