Comments:  The trips we took to Newport, Boston and Plymouth were the pinnacle of this school year. Besides the educational value of visiting Plymouth Plantation, and The Vanderbilt Mansion (The Breakers), the entire family had fun exploring these cities and learning the history that makes these places so unique. A great year!
