Begin your tour out on the water, cruising by ferry from Martha’s Vineyard to our next destination, Cape Cod. Next up, the bright blooms of lovely gardens beckon as we stroll through the Hidden Gem Heritage Museum & Gardens of Sandwich, Cape Cod's oldest town. Soak up the 100 acres of expansive gardens of trees and shrubs, designed gardens, exquisite flowers and sweeping lawns. From fall’s blazing foliage to summer’s brilliant hydrangeas and daylilies, the gardens are a delight any time of year and one of the prettiest ways to experience Cape Cod. In the galleries you’ll find a collection of American Folk Art, a vintage carousel you can ride, important American automobiles from the brass age to the present, and more traveling exhibits. Later, Connect With Locals and get an insider experience of what life is like in Cape Cod with a private meal with the owners of a local restaurant. Savor tasty seafood while you gain a deeper understanding of the thriving dining scene on Cape Cod in this Be My Guest lunch.

Perhaps sample the local dishes of clam chowder or Portuguese kale soup for which the Cape Cod area is so renowned.

Spend the rest of the evening on your own, admiring the city’s beautiful colonial-era architecture and sophisticated style.
This morning, you'll enjoy Your Choice sightseeing with a visit to one of Newport's renowned landmarks—The Vanderbilt's Breakers Mansion, a “summer cottage” called The Elms Mansion or the International Tennis Hall of Fame, which pays tribute to the players and contributors to this sport.
