We’ll begin at the Boothbay Railway Village Museum, spend the morning discovering 35-acres of Maine history brought to life! Step back in time for a peek at Maine and the way life used to be. Nowhere else in New England can you ride the rails behind an authentic steam locomotive surrounded by historic Maine buildings preserved in a recreated village of aged and vintage buildings, assembled from across Maine, and view a collection of 60 antique autos or experience model trains as never before. When you visit the museum, you’ll learn about how technologies like steam engines and the automobile changed life along the coast of Maine between 1850 and 1950.

Truly a magnificent “Seafari” for all nature lovers with seals, blue heron, an occasional whale, and other coastal wildlife along the way. The cruise is narrated by the National Audubon’s Project Puffin, so you get the history of puffins and the Eastern Egg Rock restoration directly from people involved with the project. We’ll also pass by 3 lighthouses (Ram, Burnt, and Pemaquid Point), see many islands, coastline, Fisherman’s Island, Ocean Point, Spruce Point, Tumbler Island, White Islands, and much more! This is much more than just a ride out to see the puffins!

Finally, we arrive in York Beach at Short Sands Beach, a small beach with calm waters. Take time to visit The Goldenrod, part restaurant, part ice cream parlor, part candy store, complete with huge taffy-stretching machine in the front window that the kids will love watching. They are famous for their saltwater taffy. Definitely pick up a box to take home for a souvenir. After the day ends, we will head back home. Trip goes rain or shine!

With catchy songs and irreverent comedy, Nunsense is sure to keep audiences rolling with laughter.

Their intimate theatre is just a short stroll from the dining room. There you will have reserved seating to enjoy some of the finest entertainment available. Professional actors will delight you with a wonderful play worthy of Broadway.

Enjoy the beach or go shopping for the day! Our stops are Hampton Beach, the Kittery Outlets, and York Beach. You get off where you want…that’s right you pick what location you want and spend the day there at that location!!

Hampton Beach, located in New Hampshire is easily the busiest beach in the state and where all the action is. The Atlantic Ocean is the main attraction with its clean water, miles of sandy beach and spruced up bathhouses. But there is so much more to do with a stroll along Ocean Avenue, where arcades, T-shirt stands, and souvenir shops elbow for space with fast-food joints, fried-dough vendors, and candy shops. So much to do, where to begin.

Our next stop be dropped off at the Kittery Outlets, which has over 120 popular brand name outlet stores and of course the famous Kittery Trading Post. Think of it as New England’s Fashion District, featuring the latest and greatest in women’s and men’s apparel, children’s wear, active wear, lingerie, sporting goods, shoes, fashion accessories, home furnishings, housewares, and specialty items.

Finally, we arrive in York Beach at Short Sands Beach, a small beach with calm waters. Take time to visit The Goldenrod, part restaurant, part ice cream parlor, part candy store, complete with huge taffy-stretching machine in the front window that the kids will love watching. They are famous for their saltwater taffy. Definitely pick up a box to take home for a souvenir.

After the day ends, we will head back home. Trip goes rain or shine!

Drop-off & Pick-up Times:
