Day 2

Continental breakfast is included this morning at the hotel. Local guide will meet you for a full day of touring. Travel historic Route 6A, the Old King's Highway, a scenic byway winding through centuries of Cape Cod history. It winds past hundreds of historic structures which characterize its early development. View the Eastham Windmill, a Cape Cod Lighthouse and visit the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor's Center. Hear the Pilgrim's stories of Corn Hill, First Encounter Beach, Pilgrim Spring and Pond and their First Landing site.
Sand dunes and the ocean surround you as you approach "Land's End" - Provincetown. You are now at the extreme tip of Cape Cod. Formerly known as the "Province Lands", the Pilgrims landed here first before they decided to settle across the Bay in Plymouth. The story started here in 1620 where the Pilgrims spent their first five weeks exploring Cape Cod. It was here that they signed the Mayflower Compact...the catalyst for American democracy.
Lunch on your own. Take time to view the Bas Relief Monument and Park commemorating the first landing and the signing of the compact.
Visit Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum. This 255-foot tower that dominates the town is the tallest granite structure in the United States. The walk to the top is 116 steps and 60 ramps. Should you choose to climb, you will see many interior stones that were donated by cities, towns and organizations from all over the United States.
The Provincetown Museum exhibits highlight the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims, the town's rich maritime history and building of the monument. There is also a re-creation of a 19th century sea captain's parlor at home and his quarters at sea as well as a diorama of the Mayflower Compact being signed aboard the Mayflower in Porvincetown Harbor.

Photo stops will be made at Plymouth Rock, the traditional site of disembarkation of the Pilgrims and the Mayflower II, a reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to the New World.

Day 4

Continental Breakfast at hotel this morning. Meet local guide for touring the first Cape Towns, Hyannis and Sandwich. All Cape Cod Towns were founded by people unhappy with the Boston-area Puritans. The clan of Wampanoag Indians, who lived here sold the land title.
Over the next 20 years, settlers spread north and south from Plymouth. The first parts of Cape Cod to be settled were the Bay-side sections of Sandwich, Barnstable, and Yarmouth (all incorporated in 1639), along an old Indian trail that is now Route 6A. Most of the newcomers hunted, farmed, and fished. Salt hay from the marshes was used to feed cattle and roof houses.
Welcome aboard a one-hour Hyannis Harbor Cruise. Get to know the local landmarks, popular beaches and other points of interest on your way for a waterfront view of the Kennedy Compound.
Time on Main Street in Hyannis for lunch on your own.
Sitting at the entrance of the Town Green (on Main Street) in honor of his gentleness and kindness to the pilgrims is a statue of lyannough. The Pilgrims' first encounter with lyannough occurred in the summer of 1622, having helped an English search party find a lost boy.
This afternoon, you will travel to Sandwich - the oldest town on Cape Cod. Hear stories of the Puritans, Quakers, Shawme, Dexter Grist Mill, Hoxie House and the First Church of Christ.
Included today is admission to The Sandwich Glass Museum. View sparkling exhibits that describe the transformation of a small farming community into one of the world's most respected manufacturers of 19th century glass. Watch molten glass, drawn from the furnace, blown and pressed into exquisite shapes and visit the distinctive museum shop.
Dinner is included this evening at the Historic Dan'l Webster Inn. The inn has been welcoming patrons for over 300 years.
