Day 1

This afternoon we will take an excursion aboard the Essex Steam Train and travel back to the glory days of steam! On this excursion, a steam locomotive pulls vintage coaches on a narrated round-trip through the quintessential New England towns of Deep River and Chester. At Deep River Landing, we will board the Becky Thatcher riverboat for a 1 1/4-hour cruise along the Connecticut River. Our lodging for the next two nights will be at the Hampton Inn Groton/Mystic. This evening we'll have dinner at a local restaurant.


Day 2

Following breakfast, we will visit the Mystic Seaport Museum, a village and ship's area that is an active living history museum with 17-acres of exhibits portraying coastal life in New England in the 19th century. Upon arrival, we will receive a map and schedule of activities. You may tour the Museum independently and at your own pace. With so much to see and do, we suggest you allow three to four hours for a self-guided exploration of the 19-acres, which allows time for lunch on your own. This afternoon we will visit New England's Mystic Aquarium, which offers unforgettable animal encounters, fun interactive experiences and dynamic learning opportunities for people of all ages. You will have some time back at the hotel before visiting Olde Mistick Village to have dinner on your own this evening.


Day 3

Today, after breakfast, we will visit the Submarine Force Library & Museum which maintains the world's finest collection of submarine artifacts. Next, we will visit the Shore Line Trolley Museum. The museum boasts a collection of vintage vehicles chosen to represent the history and technology of the trolley car era. After an included lunch, we will depart for home.
