Legendary Journeys and Adventures

Explore the best of New England on a journey through its picturesque heart, discovering new insights into landmark sites and historic homes, where country farms and nature's dramatically contrasting vistas evoke the spirit of a place whose ideas shaped America.

Classic New England lives in Boston Common, in the White Mountains aglow with autumn colors, in the general store, the diamond at Fenway Park, and the sustainable soil of Billings Farm... the drama of the rugged Maine coast... in Augustus Saint-Gaudens' studio where images of American heroes were forged, in millwheels, covered bridges, and white-steepled churches, and the rocky soil that has long been fertile ground for thinkers, artists, writers, inventors, entrepreneurs and Revolutionaries. This is, as Dayton Duncan observes, Ken Burns's backyard: "New England has always had a special place in American history and American thought. And New England has become Ken Burns's backyard – not just the place where he's raised his family and made his documentaries in the classic New England town of Walpole, New Hampshire, but also a place intertwined with many of the stories he's told: Mark Twain, Baseball, The Civil War and The National Parks: America's Best Idea. It's a distinct region with its own beauty and its own secret treasures – and who better to share them but one of its proudest residents."

A tour of fabled Fenway Park

Day 2

In Boston, a walking tour of Fenway Park

The oldest ballpark used in Major League Baseball, Boston's beloved Fenway Park has been the home of the American League's Boston Red Sox since the 1912 season; listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it has seen its share of baseball history. Over the decades, Fenway has accumulated a number of famous features, such as the legendary "Green Monster" left field wall; the center field "Triangle;" "Pesky's Pole" in right field; and "Williamsburg," named for Hall of Famer Ted Williams; you may see some of these landmarks on a walking tour of the stadium.

Omni Mount Washington Resort

Nights 5 and 6

Gilded Age opulence in New Hampshire's White Mountains

Surrounded by the White Mountains in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, the Omni Mount Washington Resort is one of New England's last grand Gilded Age resort hotels still in operation. Since 1902, this palatial hotel has been a magnet for presidents, robber barons and celebrities; Babe Ruth and Thomas Edison, for example, loved to play golf here. In 1944, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were established right here in the Mount Washington Resort's Gold Room. This historic hotel's architectural grandeur is well-preserved, and the mountain scenery is stunning no matter the season.

Great mix of history, cultural, and local experiences and the Ken Burns' connection added so much enjoyment with short films shown on the rides that added to the history and culture of the area.

We just returned from the trip to Hidden Gems of New England and had a really good time. Every day was exciting and would have been better enjoyed only by having better weather. It rained three days! The weather was warm and windy in Boston, but got cooler as we traveled to Vermont.

Most Memorable Moment:

There were several memorable moments on the trip, but things that stand out in my memory was the Fenway Park Tour, touring Mark Twain's home and staying at the Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire. We had very knowledgeable tour guides which made it interesting.

We had a great trip! Weather was much warmer than we planned for but that was good. Tour Director and bus driver were great. Very knowledgeable. Only negative was the food and service at Jackson Gore Inn. The rooms there were wonderful but not so with the food. All in all, we had a wonderful adventure!

Most Memorable Moment:

Tour of Fenway Park and tour of Mark Twains home.
