Day 2: We tour Nantucket Island, the “little grey lady” 30 miles to the sea. The island still looks much as it did during its heyday as a prosperous whaling and shipping port of the 1800’s. Cedar-shingled homes and elegant mansions still line the cobblestone streets. This afternoon we enjoy a narrated island bus tour as we view Nantucket’s varied scenery, traveling past cranberry bogs, rolling fields and quaint cottages. We return to the mainland and enjoy a lobster dinner. (B, D)

Enjoy a complete island tour including a walk through the “Gingerbread Cottage” area in Oak Bluffs, a drive along the beach where the movie “Jaws” was filmed, time for shopping in Edgartown and a scenic drive across the island for a photo stop at the great clay cliffs of Aquinnah. We return to the mainland and continue to Newport for the next two nights. An included dinner will be featured enroute to Newport. (B, D)
Day 4: We depart with our guide and tour through coastal Rhode Island and board a ferry to Block Island, “the Bermuda of the North.” Block Island is known for its great beaches, wildflowers and miles of stone walls and rolling terrain. Another guided tour will introduce us to the sights of the island including a photo stop at Mohegan Bluffs. Dinner is included tonight in Newport. (B, D)
