This year, 2017, is the 100th anniversary of the birth of John F Kennedy. To mark the occasion, Travac’s Cape Cod and Boston tour will feature many of the sites that were familiar to John F. Kennedy in Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Boston. Our local guides will narrate your visit with stories and anecdotes about this great man and Jackie’s life in Camelot.
Cape Cod is of course unique. Its windswept beaches provide vacationers with an endless panorama of the Atlantic Ocean. Its colonial past has left this peninsula with a legacy of beautiful gabled roofed and wood framed villages.
Travac Tours wants to take you to Cape Cod this summer for a 5 day, 4 night escape to one of America’s favourite seaside playgrounds. Your hotel in Cape Cod is The Heritage House Hotel in Hyannis. The hotel is a short walking distance to the quaint shops, boutiques and eateries of Hyannis. To fully appreciate the history and culture of this special region, knowledgeable local guides will shepherd you through its local attractions. You will also have a chance to visit the legendary island of Martha’s Vineyard. Fishing was once the mainstay of this island, but it has become a summer retreat for the rich and famous including many of the Kennedy clan.
Travac also includes a city tour in Boston. You’ll travel down the old-world Freedom Trail with stops at Boston’s favourite historical landmarks. You’ll continue your tour with visits to Back Bay, the Public Gardens, Beacon Hill and old Ironsides, the oldest ship in the U.S. Navy.
