Nantucket Island, the “Little Grey Lady” 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 whaling mansions still line the cobblestone streets, with the modern addition of upscale boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants to suit any taste.

Summer cottages” built by titans of industry and society during the Gilded Age, and Ten Mile Ocean Drive where you can gaze at spectacular waterfront estates and unparalleled ocean views!

Rosecliff Mansion

With its celebrated heart-shaped grand staircase and the largest ballroom in Newport, this elegant mansion overlooking the Atlantic Ocean recalls lost Gilded Age summers filled with extravagant parties like the one featured in 1974’s The Great Gatsby, which filmed scenes at Rosecliff. 

Rosecliff was built for Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs, who used it to host many fabulous Gilded Age entertainments. Architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles.

Guided tour of Chesapeake City

Chesapeake City is a picturesque small town located on the C&D Canal, which connects the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays. The town is located along Route 213 and is split north to south by the C&D Canal. This historic canal opened in 1829 and has provided important access to the Chesapeake Bay since. Ocean-going ships and tugs pulling barges can be seen passing through the center of town.

Chesapeake City is world renown for its famous Thoroughbred Horse Farms! We’ll go for an informative ride through the area, without leaving the coach!

Assateague Visitor’s Center & Cruise

Assateague’s wild horses are well known, even to many people who have never been to the island. The “wild” horses on Assateague are actually feral animals, meaning that they are descendants of domestic animals that have reverted to a wild state. Horses tough enough to survive the scorching heat, abundant mosquitoes, stormy weather and poor quality food found on this remote, windswept barrier island have formed a unique wild horse society. Enjoy their beauty from a distance, and you can help make sure these extraordinary wild horses will continue to thrive on Assateague Island.

Enjoy an 80 minute cruise aboard the Assateague Adventure II and see the wild ponies in their natural habitat, bird watch, learn about the eco system, and the fishing boats and navigate Ocean City’s commercial fishing boat harbor.

Ocean City Life Saving Museum

The museum offers visitors a chance to do a deep dive into the history of the U.S. Life-Saving Service and learn about the cultural and natural history of Ocean City and Worcester County, Maryland. Our permanent exhibits include the original USLSS log book, physical artifacts from the USLSS, historical elements from the Ocean City Boardwalk, a collection of sand from beaches all over the world, and a display dedicated to surfing and its history in Ocean City, as well as the history of the pioneering women of Ocean City.

Even though Bedford Falls is a fictional town, Seneca Falls appears to have striking similarities to the movie scenes, and it is believed that the movie was loosely based on a true story from a local member of the community.  Inside the museum, there are hundreds of personal artifacts, photos, and memorabilia from the It’s a Wonderful Life movie.

Trapp Family Lodge

The von Trapp family’s journey is a remarkable story. In 1938, just before World War II, the Baron and the Baroness von Trapp left all their possessions and estate near Salzburg. With nine children and one on the way, they fled Austria and were granted asylum in this country. Arriving with only $4.00, they settled in Philadelphia, and through their music, turned a family hobby into a profession as the Trapp Family Singers.  They soon bought a small farmhouse in Stowe, Vermont, because the landscape reminded them of home. Here, the family lived peacefully and continued to travel the world singing.   Maria wrote an autobiography that inspired the play and movie, The Sound of Music, and her story became an American legend.  What was once a modest farm grew into a world-renowned resort, and is now overseen by Johannes, the youngest of the singing von Trapp children, and his family.

Church Street Marketplace

Downtown Burlington, Vermont’s award-winning open air mall is a hub of activity where you’ll find historical architecture, year-round festivals, street entertainers, music, over 100 places to shop and dine, and even quiet places to ponder.

Blue Sky Mausoleum in Forest Lawn Cemetery

Frank Lloyd Wright designed Blue Sky Mausoleum at the request of Darwin D. Martin, secretary of the Larkin Soap Company.  Frank Lloyd Wright “broke the box” of memorial architecture tradition. His design fully manifests his principle of “organic” architecture. The structure is integrated into the landscape, and its granite echoes the stone of nearby monuments. The blue sky is its ceiling, and living greens gently suggest its walls. The edifice overlooks a peaceful pond.  In this serene setting, visitors feel the eternal connections between earth and sky, and lives present and past. Soon after the mausoleum’s plans were presented, however, Martin lost his fortune and the project was tabled.

The project languished until the 1990s when Fred Whaley, Jr., president of Forest Lawn, discovered that a Wright memorial had once been designed for the cemetery. He then spearheaded the effort to raise public support and funds to develop the monument. Blue Sky Mausoleum was finally opened in October 2004. The design for the mausoleum has been forever retired, making this beautiful structure truly one of a kind.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House

Buffalo had never seen the likes of what Wright had in store for the Martin family. Set among a neighborhood of wood-frame Victorian houses, the six-building Martin House Complex featured sleek horizontal lines and a lack of ornamentation that distinguished it from the surrounding homes. It was also enormous.  Consisting of the Martin House and the Barton House (built for Martin’s sister and her husband), as well as a conservatory, carriage house, gardeners cottage and 100-foot-long pergola, the complex occupied more than 30,000 square feet on a one-and-a half- acre lot.  The site ranks as one of Wright’s finest residential projects – a place where architecture, the surrounding landscape, and an extensive collection of art glass and furnishings come together to form a complete work of genius.

Graycliff

Perched on a cliff high above Lake Erie on the outskirts of Buffalo, NY, Graycliff is one of the most ambitious summer estates Wright ever designed, and has been aptly called “the Jewel on the Lake.” Built in 1927, the summer estate, spread over 8.5 acres, includes three structures and gardens of the architect’s design. The main residence is most notable for its pavilion-like center of transparent glass, which enables one to see through the house to the lake beyond. The building’s graceful organic style also features cantilevered balconies, ribbon windows and expansive terraces.

You’ll see views of Longfellow’s boyhood home, sea captain houses and the elegant Mansions as you drive through historic neighborhoods overlooking the islands of Casco Bay in Portland Harbor.

Maine Lobster Festival

You’ll attend the 77th Annual Maine Lobster Festival along the Rockland harborfront where lobster is king!  Feasting and festivities include music and entertainment and of course – feasting on hot Maine lobster and other Maine delicacies such as blueberry pie, fried clams, shrimp cocktail, steamed mussels!  At years past festivals, nearly 8 tons of lobster was prepared in the world’s largest lobster cooker – plus many other seafood and non-seafood items for lunch on your own today. Rockland is the entry point to Penobscot Bay, perhaps the most scenic body of water on the eastern seaboard. There is a wonderful boardwalk surrounding the park so you can sit back and enjoy the festivities and ocean breezes!  Or explore Rockland’s Main Street with art galleries and shops just steps from the gate.

Boothbay Harbor Cruise & Lobster Trap Haul

Cap’n Fish originated this trip over 50 years ago to give the region’s visitors an idea of how those delicious lobsters you enjoy at your favorite restaurant are caught, how the traps are hauled and a little background of Maine’s famous lobster industry. Enjoy the seals basking on the rocks. Pass by two major lighthouses, Burnt Island Light and Ram Island Lighthouse. This Boothbay Harbor lobster tour is educational and fun for everyone.

Cape Neddick “Nubble Light”

Built in 1879, Cape Neddick is the southernmost of Maine’s many lights. It is also known as Nubble Light, referring to the barren and rocky ledge (the Nubble) on which it sits.

The staff, lovers of history, gladly relates stories about Verplanck husbands and wives, army generals, and James F. Brown, a fugitive slave.

Hear about Mount Gulian’s centuries-long history that shaped our nation, including its part in the Revolutionary War as Patriot General Von Steuben’s headquarters, the founding of the Society of the Cincinnati, our country’s oldest veterans’ organization, and the history of generations of Verplanck family members who lived here.  Then, hold history in your hands at a truly unique White Glove Tour. You will get to hold and examine artifacts representing 300 years of history. Everyone gets to put on white, cotton, curatorial gloves before handling artifacts and documents relating to the Verplanck Family, the American Revolution, the Civil War and much more.

Locust Grove Estate

The Locust Grove Estate was purchased by painter and inventor Samuel Morse in 1847, using his profits from the invention of the telegraph. With the help of architect Alexander Jackson Davis, Morse remodeled the house in the Tuscan style, adding a porte cochere, two wings, and a four-story tower. The Morses sold the property to William and Martha Young in 1901 and the Youngs filled the mansion’s 25 rooms with their collections of 18th and 19th century furniture, paintings, silver and porcelain. Conscious of the estate’s importance, the Young’s daughter opened the house to the public in 1979 with her family’s collections intact. The 200 acres of landscaped grounds are set on a sharp bluff overlooking the Hudson River and retain the large flower and kitchen gardens planted and designed by the Youngs. A visitor’s center houses exhibits of Morse’s paintings and telegraph equipment. Walkers can stroll on the carriage roads that wind through the estate grounds.

Staatsburgh State Historic Site

Staatsburgh State Historic Site is the elegant country home of Ogden Mills and his wife Ruth Livingston Mills. Overlooking the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains, Staatsburgh is a fine example of a great estate built by America’s financial and industrial leaders during the Gilded Age (1876 – 1917). Also known as the American Renaissance, this period in American history was marked by America’s rapid economic growth and emergence as a world power. Darius Ogden Mills, father of Ogden Mills, established the family fortune by investing in banks, railroads and mines. Ogden Mills, like his father, was a noted financier and philanthropist. In 1882 he married Ruth Livingston, whose family had been prominent landowners in the Hudson Valley since the 17th century. In 1890, Ruth Livingston Mills inherited her childhood home and property which had once belonged to her great-grandfather, Morgan Lewis, the third governor of New York State.

Village of Rhinebeck

Rhinebeck is a charming, historic town nestled in New York’s scenic Hudson Valley. Tree-lined streets beckon with unique independent specialty shops offering apparel, home furnishings, books and gifts. The many fine and casual dining spots celebrate the Hudson Valley’s thriving locavore movement of boutique farms and orchards.

Clermont State Historic Site

Clermont State Historic Site was the country seat of the Livingston family. Originally a Georgian Mansion, over the years the house was added onto to give it its present appearance. Seven generations of Livingstons as well as dozens of enslaved people and paid servants lived at Clermont. The land surrounding the house was occupied by tenant farmers, beholden to the Livingston, the farms of small freeholders and mills. For the first few generations, Livingston owned ships full of paid sailors plied the river between Clermont, New York City and Albany. Over time, through land sales and the division of land through gifts and inheritance Clermont’s land shrunk until it was just the confines of the present historic site. With this contraction of land came a contraction of power and influence for the family.

Today Clermont is decorated as it appeared circa 1930 when it was home to Alice Delafield Clarkson Livingston, her daughters Honoria and Janet, and their staff of servants.

Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1973, Clermont is also an anchor of the Hudson River National Landmark District.

Haunted Happenings

Salem’s connection to Halloween begins with the tragic events that unfolded during the Salem Witch Trials. The 19 innocent victims who lost their lives in 1692 were not witches, they were only so accused due to Puritan beliefs of the time. The Salem Witch Trials were later revived with Arthur Miller’s 1953 work, The Crucible, and again in 1992 during the tercentenary of the events and the unveiling of the Salem Witch Trials Memorial. By 1982, the City has planned the first Salem Haunted Happenings Festival during Halloween weekend. The festival was an effort to provide family-friendly events for guests who were interested in visiting the “Witch City.” Following the first festival’s success with about 50,000 guests in attendance, the annual event has continued to grow each season, drawing everyone from families, couples, history buffs, and Halloween enthusiasts from all over the world.

Today, members of the modern Pagan and Witch communities have a home in Salem, where Samhain is celebrated each October recognizing the end of the harvest season and the coming of winter. The City’s modern witches have the unique opportunity of being able to share their beliefs and celebrations with both locals and out of town guests who come to celebrate the Halloween season in Salem.
