Caravan all inclusive vacations are a great way to travel worry-free.

One of the main benefits of traveling with Caravan Tours is that outside of your airfare, virtually all other costs are included in the ticket price. Your food, lodging, travel itinerary, plus all activities, outings and even tips are taken care of by Caravan.

Most vacationers find themselves spending very little while on their actual vacation – and usually, it’s only to purchase a few souvenirs here and there.

In addition to handling all your vacation expenses, Caravan all inclusive vacations are also fully guided packages – conducted by professional local tour operators who:

  • Handle all activity payments and tipping
  • Take care of hotel check-ins

A Vermont fall vacation is unlike anywhere else in the world thanks in no small way to the vibrant colors of the state’s fall foliage. The Green Mountain State of Vermont USA has been listed as one of the “50 Places of a Lifetime to Visit” by National Geographic Traveler’s mobile app.

Full of natural heritage, the state of Vermont in New England harbors some of America’s most beautiful and scenic landscapes. The serene beauty of endless emerald green fields soon transform into forests with magnificent mountain peaks, accented by 400+ freshwater lakes and ponds.

The people of Vermont (Vermonters) are known for their friendliness, honesty, and hospitality – making Vermont a very popular tourist destination! We recommend you take a lovely drive through the Green Mountains, visit the historic homestead of Plymouth Notch, and spend some time in the “prettiest small town” of Woodstock while on your Vermont fall vacation.

Green Mountains Vermont

The state of Vermont is known as “The Green Mountain State” because of the famous Green Mountain range. The Green Mountains are only a small part of the Appalachian Mountains, which span between the province of Quebec (in Canada) and the southern state of Alabama.

While on your Vermont fall vacation you can enjoy the world famous New England Fall Foliage tour as well as taste the sweetest, all natural maple syrup.

Driving up the scenic roads through the Green Mountains can be slow but only because of all the scenery to be seen. Along the way, quaint towns like Stowe and Montgomery are surrounded by apple orchards, covered bridges, and charming inns.

Plymouth Notch Vermont

Visit the small homestead of Plymouth Notch while on your Vermont fall vacation. Plymouth Notch became famous the night Vice President Calvin Coolidge received news of the untimely death of President Warren Harding. That night, on August 3, 1923, Coolidge was sworn into Presidency by an oath administered by his father, right in his family’s homestead.

To this day Plymouth Notch remains nearly the same as it was that night, nearly 100 years ago. For nearly a century it has been untouched – and is now considered one of the best preserved Presidential sites in America.

Most of the town of Plymouth Notch, Vermont remains as it was in 1923 and visitors to the historical site are able to visit the Cilley General Store, the Post Office, and the local church. The dance hall, which became the Summer White House for Coolidge, is open to the public, as well as the home where Coolidge was born.

Woodstock Vermont

No Vermont fall vacation would be complete without a visit to Woodstock. The people of Woodstock brag that their town is one of the most perfect places in all of Vermont. Woodstock was named the “Prettiest Small Town in America” by Ladies Home Journal, and “One of America’s Most Picturesque Villages,” by National Geographic Magazine.

The small town of Woodstock, with just over 3,000 residents, is the capital of Windsor County in Vermont. At the heart of the town is the central square known as the Village Green. Most residences in the area are restored but still reflect late Georgian, Federal, and Greek Revival designs.

The small town of Woodstock, Vermont is very quaint and filled with local boutiques, art galleries, antique shops, and specialty food stores, where you can find unique gifts and simple treasures while on your Vermont vacation. And of course, a visit to Vermont would not be complete without a glimpse of the much-photographed historic Taftsville Covered Bridge.

Enjoy a fall foliage tour with Caravan Tours and visit many of the historic New England mansions.

The glamorous lives of the members of the 400 Club in Newport, Rhode Island, have certainly been long admired. In the early 1900’s, New England socialites built summer cottages and vacation homes along Rhode Island’s beautiful 400-mile coastline.

These are much more than ‘cottages’. They are now historic New England mansions that are still unrivalled even to this day. At the time, these New England mansions were social hubs for hosting and attending weekly parties.

Today, vacationers to Newport Rhode Island in New England, enjoy guided tours of these Gilded Age mansions and dream of what it would be like to live as one of America’s wealthiest families back in the day.

The Marble House “Vanderbilt Summer Cottage”

The Marble House has become one of the most famous historic New England mansions. Located in Newport Rhode Island, its notoriety may be due to its owners – William K. Vanderbilt and his wife Alva – and their role in Newport society.

The owners and their hired designer didn’t spare any expense when building the mansion; it cost approximately $11 million to build back in 1892 (which is the equivalent of $308 million in 2019)! The mansion was actually built as a 39th birthday present for Mrs. Alva Vanderbilt. As a leading hostess in Newport Society she dreamed that this historic New England mansion would be a “Temple to the Arts” in America.

The Vanderbilt’s summer cottage is named the Marble House because of its incorporation of marble into the design and structure. Nearly 7 million was spent on marble – over 500,000 cubic feet – that was used in fountains, statues and carved walls.

Many suggest that The Marble House and the Vanderbilt dynasty played a pivotal role of changing Newport’s quiet colony into a legendary resort filled with opulent, over-the-top stone palaces. Today, the cliffs on the property provide the same view of the Atlantic Ocean, while the Chinese Tea House on the property can be rented for private cocktail events.

The Breakers Mansion

The Breakers historic New England mansion is perhaps the most popular attraction in the entire state of Rhode Island, hosting nearly 300,000 visitors each year.

Preserved as a National Historic Landmark, the Breakers mansion was the summer home (or cottage) of Cornelius Vanderbilt.

Built in just 24 months (1893-1895), The Breakers was named for the ocean waves that continually crash or break on the cliffs below. At a cost of $7 million to build ($182 million today) this 13 acre estate withheld nothing – French and Italian Fashion, The Gold Room, a Great Hall with 45 foot high ceilings, and over 70 rooms in all.

Although The Breakers is now owned by the Preservation of Society of Newport County, Cornelius Vanderbilt’s great-grandchildren still occupy the third floor of the mansion during summer months.

The Elms Mansion

The Elms has been named the best historic New England mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, and was once owned by New England socialites other than the Vanderbilt family. Although it is not built on oceanfront property, the Elms Mansion still offers one of the best Newport mansion tours.

The Elms mansion was originally built by Edward Julius Berwind and his wife Sarah. This Newport mansion was modeled after the French Château d’Asnières and was completed in 1901. The Elms remained in the Berwind family for nearly 60 years.

The Elms mansion tour is a must if you spend more than a couple days in Newport, Rhode Island. Many Rhode Island tourists opt for the additional Rooftop/ Behind the Scenes Tour, which takes visitors to the servant’s quarters, kitchens, and through the underground tunnel system used to transport coal to the basement.

The Carriage House at the Elms, which is located just a short walk down the lawn, provides visitors with a light lunch during peak season.

Luckily, the Preservation Society of Newport County bought this historic New England mansion within weeks of it being scheduled to be demolished. In 1996, the Elms Mansion became a National Historic Landmark with its famous underground tunnel system and rooftop views of Newport Harbor.

Historic New England Mansions Part of Fall Foliage Tour

Caravan Tours has been offering fully escorted tours since 1952. Our all inclusive New England Fall Foliage Vacations include a tour of The Marble House and a drive through the 400 Club where The Breakers and The Elms are built.

You’ll see many wonderful east coast attractions while on your New Hampshire vacation, which is part of our New England package tour by Caravan Tours.

Captain John Mason originally named the State of New Hampshire after the town of Hampshire in England. Over time New Hampshire has developed several nicknames including the “Granite State,” “Mother of Rivers,” and “White Mountain State.

New Hampshire, USA, is located between Vermont and Maine and is one of only six states in New England. Like many of the other New England states, New Hampshire is brimming with tourist attractions including quaint shops, galleries, scenic state parks, historic sites, and glistening lakes.

New Hampshire is also home to the tallest mountains in the Northeast plus three National Scenic Byways.

While on your New Hampshire vacation, be sure to travel through the White Mountains; drive along the Kancamagus Highway, and stay in the small town of North Conway to fully take in the White Mountains.

White Mountains NH

The White Mountains cover nearly one quarter of the state of New Hampshire making it nearly impossible to visit the state without catching a glimpse of the most rugged mountain range in New England.

The most famous peak in White Mountains is Mt. Washington, which rises over 6,200 feet above sea level. Here the fastest surface wind gusts over its face reaching up to 370 miles per hour.

Mt. Washington is joined by 47 other mountain peaks all reaching over 4,000 feet. This group of peaks, called the “Four-Thousand Footers,” carve out breathtakingly scenic peaks and valleys on the New England horizon. In between, New Hampshire vacationers are delighted by the cultural richness, historical charm, and exciting recreational activities of the area.

North Conway New Hampshire

Located in the heart of the White Mountains, with Mt. Washington to the northwest, is North Conway, a popular New Hampshire vacation destination because of its shopping, recreation, attractions and outdoor activities. The year-round New Hampshire resort area is home to only 2,300 residents making it a very quaint and peaceful place to visit.

The main attractions in North Conway NH include the Cathedral Ledge (a popular climbing location), Echo Lake State Park, as well as Mount Cranmore. North Conway’s commercial district is home to Settlers’ Green Outlet Village and the White Mountain Outlet Stores.

Set to the backdrop of over 700,000 acres of the White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire tourists can enjoy North Conway during any season, but especially during fall when New England’s “Fall foliage” is displayed in all its splendor.

New England fall colors tours are always quite popular.

Kancamagus Highway

The Kancamagus Scenic Highway takes New Hampshire vacation travelers across 34.5 miles of unrivalled Fall Foliage viewing areas. The highway winds through the White Mountain National Forest, giving passengers unbelievable views of the White Mountains, Swift River, Sabbaday Falls, and Rocky Gorge.

Reaching elevations just shy of 3,000 feet, the highway has been appointed an American Scenic Byway. Its rich history, aesthetic beauty, and culture, make it a popular way to travel between Lincoln and Conway in New Hampshire.

Don’t be surprised when you leave modern civilization and are transformed to a simpler time, without gas stations and restaurants on every corner. Enjoy unspoiled New England fall foliage without all the modern day luxuries!

Check out our Rhode Island vacation post, which is also part of the New England tour.

Caravan Tours’ Rhode Island vacation lets you explore the smallest of the six New England states. Learn the historical and architectural significance and the Rhode Island mansions, which were homes to many historical figures.

Often referred to as “Little Rhody,” the State of Rhode Island is lined by over 400 miles of coastline, and is home to 20% of America’s registered historic landmarks, including The Breakers and The Elms along with 400 Club and St. Mary’s Church, all of which are located in the heart of Newport, Rhode Island.

Here are Caravan Tours’ Top 4 Newport Rhode Island vacation attractions that are included as part of Caravan’s all inclusive New England tour.

1. Newport RI – Sailing Capital of the World

Newport Rhode Island boasts that it’s easy to “fall” for its natural beauty. Located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, this spectacular coastal town is highly hospitable. Some say it is the shining gem in New England’s coastal crown.

Newport Rhode Island is also famous for its Gilded Age mansions that once were home to prestigious families such as the Astors and Vanderbilts. Apart from the historical significance of these beautiful coastal mansions, Newport RI also showcases its many seafaring adventures such as sailing, yachting, and fishing. Tours of Coastal Forts, museums, and historic sites round off any Rhode Island vacation to the yachting capital of the world.

2. Vanderbilt Summer Cottage – The Marble House

William Vanderbilt’s summer cottage, known as The Marble House, is much more than a cottage. It is located in the heart of Newport and is one of three highly recommended mansions worth visiting on any Rhode Island vacation.

William Vanderbilt had William Morris Hunt design this mansion as a gift to his wife Alva, on her 39th birthday. Built to completion in 1892, this extravagant palace totalled about $11 million at the time and features more than 500,000 cubic feet of beautiful marble.

The Vanderbilt’s were very prominent citizens and consummate hosts during Newport’s Gilded Age, and held many parties at the Mansion. Unfortunately, the couple divorced just three short years after the construction of Marble House was completed. Only in 1920, after William’s death, did Alva reopen the Marble House.

Today the Preservation Society of Newport County opens the Marble House for daily tours of the mansion, including its Chinese Tea House and its immaculate grounds.

3. Newport’s 400 Club

Some of the cottages, as the Newport Rhode Island mansions were called, were eligible for entering the elite country club known as the “400 Club.” The requirements for joining the 400 Club included having $3 million in cash (equivalent to about $100 million today) and a ballroom that was big enough to host 400 people. The Breakers and The Elms are two other popular mansions worth visiting on your Rhode Island vacation. The Breakers and The Elms can be found while driving through the streets that were originally home to the Rhode Island’s elite 400 Club.

4. Newport’s St. Mary’s Church

This Roman Catholic parish is the oldest of its kind in Rhode Island, established in April 1828.

Father Robert Woodley, who was newly ordained at the time, was given the task of exploring the possibility of starting a church in Rhode Island. After investigating other possible sites, Woodley decided on Newport RI because of its enthusiastic residents.

St. Mary’s Church likely became most famous when John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier decided to be married in the building in 1953.

Today, Newport’s St. Mary’s Church is designated as a National Historic Shrine and many Rhode Island tourists admire its second period Gothic style, which is said to be one of the most beautiful structures in all of New England.

Rhode Island Attractions – Part of New England Fall Tours

Your Rhode Island vacation is included as part of Caravan Tours’ New England Vacation packages, which also include a tour of the Vanderbilt’s summer cottage, The Marble House, as well as a sightseeing tour through 400 Club and St. Mary’s Church in Newport.

What are the top 3 Maine vacation attractions?

Unofficially titled “Vacationland,” Maine USA is best visited during the crisp autumn months when fall foliage tours are popular and the landscape turns to all kinds of magnificent hues of reds, oranges, yellows, and browns. Fall colors tours in Maine are also great when coastal villages are serving up fresh seafood, including the sweetest lobster in the world.

The Top 3 Maine vacation attractions include:

  1. Portland ME
  2. Lakes and Mountains region
  3. Kennebunkport ME

A vacation in Maine is not complete without spending a few hours in picture-perfect Portland ME, or driving through Maine’s popular regions for natural Lakes & Mountains. We also recommend taking a day or two to enjoy the old world fishing village of Kennebunkport, Maine.

Portland, ME – Ranked 4th In Top 10 Perfect Places to Live in America

The city of Portland is the first of our Maine vacation attractions. It is built on a peninsula extending into the Casco Bay. While it is considered a modern urban center, Portland ME still clings to its old historic character.

Portland ME maintains its “small town feel” through its collection of historic buildings, breathtaking setting, and its traditional waterfront district. The remarkable architecture and cobblestone streets of the “Old Port” bring both Maine vacationers and residents back in time to the old Atlantic seaside fishing village.

While vacationing in Portland ME, it will quickly become evident why this New England city is named one of the ten safest, most culturally fascinating cities in the US, and furthermore, why it’s among the 10 most perfect places to live in America. Each year over 3.6 million tourists visit the city to enjoy its lively ‘yesteryear’ charm.

Maine’s Lakes & Mountains Region

New England’s Maine is spotted with hundreds of glacial lakes in an area known as the Lakes and Mountains Region, our 2nd on the list of Maine vacation attractions. This region offers activities plenty of things to see and do year round, with a display of brilliant fall colors come autumn.

The Scenic Byway gives visitors some of the best views of New England’s fall foliage during peak season, when guided New England fall foliage tours are abundant. There are also six covered bridges in the area that were originally built in the late 1800’s (and early 1900’s) as a path for horse drawn carriages to cross rivers without the threat of being carried away downstream. Each of the six Maine covered bridges offers remarkable photo opportunities.

Kennebunkport Maine

Dubbed as the “Place to Be All Year,” Kennebunkport is our 3rd pick for Maine vacation attractions. This is a small seaside community located on the Southern tip of Maine, New England, just 90 miles north of Boston. Like Portland ME, Kennebunkport also maintains Maine’s old world fishing village feel. Lobstermen still power the Atlantic waters and bring to shore some of the best tasting, sweetest lobster in the world. A number of seaside restaurants serve up fresh seafood delicacies for Maine vacationers and locals to enjoy. A walk along Ocean Avenue past President Bush’s summer home is the perfect way to spend a couple hours in Kennebunkport, ME.
