FROM LOBSTERS TO SPACE SHUTTLES

TRAVELING IN FANTASY’S GLORIOUS STYLE ON THE 40 DAY GRAND EAST COAST VACATION will astound you with the beauty and diversity of this coastal region. Our perfectly balanced tour will immerse you into an awesome world of history, unique regional cuisines, culture and scenery. Enjoying the rugged coast of Maine, you will soon savor the sights and sounds of Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. You will taste autumn in the northeast as the brilliant fall foliage colors turn from deep forest greens to brilliant shades of red, yellow and orange.

Continuing south through the historic colonial sites of Virginia, the Outer Banks, Charleston and Savannah you will experience America’s oldest port city of St Augustine, Florida. This East Coast itinerary is appropriately named ‘Grand’ — as it is truly magnificent and a perfect journey for snowbirds who migrate south — to winter in the sunny tropics of Florida.

Combine this tour with American Heritage.
