New England Wine, Lobster and Food Motor Coach Vacation

1 Comment

We just returned from a six night, 7 day Road Scholar trip.   Road Scholar used to be Elder Hostel.  We left from Providence RI and traveled up to Main, across New Hampshire and into Vermont.   Absolutely great trip with 30 wonderful people.   Our guide was fantastic.   While we made the couple long coach trip she showed us Julia Child TV episodes on how to cook and open lobster, wine and cheese party and how to filet fish.

Experience the diversity of New England cuisine and the region’s beautiful scenery during a weeklong journey through Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Discuss with professional winemakers, lobstermen, fishermen and farmers the products they grow and harvest from the land and sea. Learn about specialty products created by local entrepreneurs and enjoy field trips to vineyards, farms, sugarhouses, markets and the ocean. At stops along the way, enjoy tastes of authentic New England foods such as johnny cakes, lobster, clam chowder, local cheeses and yogurt, cider doughnuts, and maple syrup.

Beautiful scenery, very healthy flower gardens everywhere.
