Day 5: – After breakfast at hotel, we’ll depart for Maine where we’ll have a full day touring. First, we’ll stop at Nubble Lighthouse. When the lighthouse Service completed their work, the United States government transferred the valuable service to the US Coast Guard in 1939. The gave Nubble Lighthouse the official name of Cape Neddick Light station. The Coast Guard and their families were wonderful caretakers of the Maine Lighthouses. Eventually, this service became short of resources and funding to care for the majestic beacons. Because of this in part, as well as the growing development of technology, the Lighthouses became automated. Nubble Lighthouse was automated in July 1987. Now we’ll travel to Kennebunkport and Kennebunk where we’ll have a guided tour. In the Maine coastal villages, we will visit Dock Sqaure, and follow Ocean Avenue along the Atlantic Ocean.

After, we’ll continue our travel to Massachusetts, meet our next guide and tour Boston.
