Day 1

Depart aboard our deluxe motorcoach as we head north to view the scenic and natural beauty of New Hampshire. We begin with a visit to the CANTERBURY SHAKER VILLAGE, a National Historic Landmark. Inhabited from 1792-1992, the village was one of 18 Shaker communities that flourished across the eastern United States. Our tour will introduce the Shakers and their key beliefs, and highlight some of the enduring values that allowed them to create a successful utopian community. Following our tour, enjoy a box lunch. 2 nights accommodations at the INDIAN HEAD RESORT in Lincoln, NH. Resort amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, tennis & shuffleboard courts and paddleboats. All aboard the CAFÉ LAFAYETTE DINNER TRAIN. Enjoy a two hour train ride complete with a 5 course dinner aboard restored vintage rail cars.

Day 2

We head to the CASTLE IN THE CLOUDS - a majestic 5500-acre mountain estate with breathtaking views of Lake Winnipesaukee. Thomas and Olive Plant loved their luxurious estate and entertained many notable guests including Teddy Roosevelt. Enjoy lunch at the estate before we return to our resort to relax. Enjoy a BEER, WINE & CHEESE RECEPTION before dinner in the dining room. Tonight, join in the fun as we journey through the majestic White Mountains in search of the gentle giants of the North Country on our 3 hour guided MOOSE TOUR. Our tour will depart our hotel at 8:30pm with an experienced moose guide. (Please understand that moose like all animals can be unpredictable and there is no guarantee of seeing a moose.)

Day 3

This morning we have a leisurely cruise aboard pontoon boats on our SQUAM LAKE CRUISE. Learn about the natural history of the lake, the wildlife that makes Squam so special, and view locations where the movie “On Golden Pond” was filmed over 30 years ago. Watch for Loons, Bald Eagles and other wildlife. We head for home with memories of our scenic tour of New Hampshire.
