A Bay State Journey by Land and Sea

Our early fall adventure will reach from the heart of historic Boston to the shores of Cape Cod. For two nights we will make our home base at the Taj Boston, a luxury hotel overlooking the historic Public Garden and Boston Common. We’ll tour the South End Community Gardens network and visit the restored 1806 African American Meeting House on Beacon Hill, which once hosted Frederick Douglass and other giants of the 19th century abolitionist movement, and which is today the heart of Boston’s Museum of African American History. The Trust for Public Land helped the museum acquire an adjacent building for its first Education and Technology Center.

We’ll head to the waterfront for a boat trip to scenic Cape Cod National Seashore featuring more than 40,000 acres of stunning kettle ponds, woods, marshes, and beaches on the outer cape. We wind our way south along the seashore to Chatham Bars Inn, which Town & Country Travel calls “the ultimate Cape Cod luxury experience.” Our trip wouldn’t be complete without a private lobster boil and clam bake on the bar’s white-sand beach.
