We begin at the Coolidge Historic Site, the birthplace and boyhood home of President Calvin Coolidge for a self-guided tour. This historic park dedicated to our 30th President includes President Coolidge's birthplace, his homestead, a one-room schoolhouse, a general store, a carriage barn and historical museum. Next, we travel along Route 100 to Ludlow, Vermont and the Green Mountain Sugar House. The sugarhouse, with its unmistakable bright red roof, is where everything from award winning maple syrups to mouth-watering maple fudge is produced. It's also a Vermont country gift shop, stocked with a variety of sweet maple treats, and products, Vermont cheeses, and a full range of Vermont gifts and souvenirs.

Day 3: After breakfast we meet our step-on guide, and depart for "The Granite State," New Hampshire for a day of sightseeing. We begin with a photo-stop at a covered bridge. Next, we will have some leisure time to explore the vibrant downtown area of Littleton, New Hampshire. Pollyanna of Littleton is the welcoming centerpiece of the historic downtown. As an ambassador of cheer and community spirit for residents and visitors alike, Littleton's jubilant bronze sculpture pays tribute to hometown author, Eleanor H. Porter (1868 - 1920) best remembered as the creator of the world's most optimistic character, Pollyanna. With an interesting mix of building styles, this eclectic downtown offers a variety of specialty, antique and gift shops, great places to eat, and much more to see and explore. Chutters Candy Store is a long-time tradition in the town and boasts the title of the longest candy counter in the world! Lunch is on your own.
