Step on board your Wolf's coach for travel north to Cape Cod, Massachusetts with rest and meal stops en route. This afternoon we arrive for check in to the Fairfield Inn& Suites by Marriott Cape Cod Hyannis (508-771-6100) for a delightful four-night stay. The hotel features an indoor heated pool, fitness center, business center, convenience shop and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Spacious guest rooms offer visitors modern conveniences including a mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee/tea maker and supplies, hairdryer, flat screen LCD TV and iron/ironing board. Dinner is included tonight with the remainder of the evening yours to relax and unwind. D


Start your day with an extended continental breakfast at the hotel. After breakfast, board your coach and welcome your local guide for a full day of touring. Start your travels on historic Route 6A, the Old King's Highway, a scenic byway winding through centuries of Cape Cod history. You will pass hundreds of historic structures which characterize its early development. View the Eastham Windmill and a Cape Cod lighthouse and visit the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitors Center. Sand dunes and ocean surround you as you approach "Land's End" - Provincetown. This is the extreme tip of Cape Cod, formerly known as the "Province Lands". The pilgrims landed here first before they decided to settle across the bay in Plymouth. You will have some free time to enjoy Provincetown's variety of restaurants, shops and galleries that make this artists/fishermen village so unique. This afternoon, board an excursion vessel for an amazing experience of Whale Watching. You will travel into the natural habitat of a diverse marine environment including birds that migrate here from all over the Atlantic and fish which use these shallow waters to feed. The onboard naturalist will introduce you to everything you may see on your cruise and will answer questions about whales, birds, fish and lighthouses. OR - you may choose to stay on dry land and take a Dune Tour. Ride along the shoreline of the Cape and your guide will point out the "dune shacks" where famous artists and writers became inspired to create their art. Dinner this evening will be on your own in Provincetown and your local guide will offer some suggestions for places to dine. B


Wake to an extended continental breakfast included at your hotel this morning. Afterwards, we will make our way to the Hy-Line Docks for ticketing and boarding of your ferry to either Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. If choosing Martha's Vineyard, upon arrival you will board a local bus for a Sightseeing Tour. Learn of the history and lifestyles of the islanders as you pass through Vineyard Haven. There will be free time for lunch and shopping in the historic village of Edgartown. Complete your trip today on the Island in Oak Bluffs, where you may choose to stroll through "Cottage City" with its brightly painted cottages with decorative "gingerbread" trim. If you choose to visit Nantucket Island, your ferry will transport you to the stunning island of Nantucket. Upon arrival, you will have free time for lunch and shopping on your own. Your guide will point out the restaurants, galleries, shops and museums that are within walking distance to the dock. Before departing beautiful Nantucket Island, enjoy a narrated driving tour. Please remember to wear comfortable walking shoes for cobblestone streets and brick sidewalks that line Nantucket's downtown area. Once back from your island hopping, your evening is free with dinner on your own and our guide will offer suggestions. B


Once again, an extended continental breakfast is included this morning at the hotel. Following breakfast, say "good morning" to your local guide who will join you on the coach for a driving Hyannis Highlights tour including the John F. Kennedy Memorial, the Korean War Memorial and a view of St. Francis Xavier Church, the summer parish of the Kennedy Family. Next, we will board the Cape Cod Central Railroad for a scenic excursion past cranberry bogs, through the natural woodlands and lush marshes as you make your way from Hyannis to Cape Cod Canal and by the oldest town on Cape Cod, Sandwich. A boxed lunch will be provided during the ride. A short stop will be made at the Pairpoint Glass Company where artisans have combined fine craftsmanship and individualized service to provide collectible glassware for individuals and companies around the world for over 175 years. We will then board our motorcoach and travel to America's Hometown, Plymouth. Home of our pilgrim fathers and one of the country's first settlements, it is well known for its historical value in U.S. history. A photo-stop will be made at the Forefather's Monument, the largest, solid granite monument in the United States. She stands facing the harbor, welcoming those who come by water. Next, you will board a Lobster Tales Cruise to learn about the many creatures that live in Plymouth Harbor. Experience a "hands-on" approach to see how lobsters are harvested from their natural environment. So, roll up your sleeves and help haul in the lobster traps. Back on land, we will make a second photo-stop at Plymouth Rock, the traditional site of disembarkation of the Pilgrims in 1620. A trip to the Cape is not complete without a lobster dinner, which is included this evening with an alternate entree available for any "landlubbers" not wishing to eat shellfish. Afterwards, we will return to our hotel for the evening. B, BL, D


Awake to your last morning at the hotel and enjoy a delicious breakfast (included) prior to check out and departure. We will travel home to Pennsylvania with some delightful memories of your trip to Cape Cod. Meal and rest stops will be made en route home. B
