The Blinn College Alumni and Friends Association invites the community to learn more about its upcoming fall trip to New England at an informational meeting that will be hosted at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in the Blinn College-Brenham Campus Student Center (map).

The “Colors of New England” tour will take place Sept. 28 through Oct. 5. Visitors will be charmed by the spirit of New England on a tour that takes participants from the heart of historic Boston to the farms, coast, and mountains of the north. Guests tour historic Boston during a two-night stay in the heart of the city, then explore a quintessential New England village in Woodstock, Vermont.

Guests can see apples turned into cider at Cold Hollow Cider Mill, learn about the maple sugaring industry on a farm tour of the Rocks Estate, and admire the views during a cruise along Lake Winnipesaukee. The trip includes a traditional New England lobster dinner, and visits to Maine’s seaside communities of Portland and Kennebunkport.

The tour is $5,149 per person for a single-occupancy traveler, $3,749 per person for a double-occupancy traveler, and $3,699 per person for a triple-occupancy traveler.

This is the Alumni and Friends Association’s third annual trip after previous visits to New York City and Italy.
