Skipping across the Southwest by rail
Please note: due to new restrictive Amtrak policies, we encourage you to sign up for this tour no later than December 1 as any extra compartments will need to be released near that time. Also, because of the limited number of bedrooms Amtrak offers on the Sunset Limited, single travelers will be initially restricted to roomettes to accommodate couples in bedrooms. If bedrooms are available on our space release date, we will accommodate singles who wish to have bedroom compartments in the date order reservations are received. We apologize for any inconvenience but Amtrak is Amtrak.

This morning we’ll join fellow New Orleans travelers who arrived by plane last night for coffee and beignets at famous Café du Monde. Later we’ll tour the National World War II Museum, dedicated to preserving the memory of all who served, on the oceans, the battlefields and here at home. Lunch and a show in BB’s Stage Door Canteen is included. Return home by air or combine this rail tour with our New Orleans… And All That Jazz tour, featured on the next page. (CB,L)
Featuring Tioga Pass and Bodie State Historical Park
Each spring the baseball fans in our midst make a pilgrimage to Arizona, where the “Boys of Summer” get ready for the season. We’ll catch a game every afternoon or evening, a total of 5 games in all. Generally, the Giants are the first priority and the A’s second. The schedules for the Cactus League in Spring Training are not finalized and announced until sometime in November/December, and those registered will be sent the schedule just as soon as it is finalized.
Each departure features Sunday Brunch at the Wrigley Mansion, and a dinner at Rustler’s Roost (a Sports Leisure tradition). The centrally located Marriott Hotel we call home provides a great buffet breakfast each morning. Tickets for the games are almost always located in the shade. You’ll see how important this tiny feature is once we get to Arizona and you see thousands of people unwilling to take their seats for the game because they are in the sun!
By registering early, you secure your space, guarantee your tickets and save a few dollars. We only purchase a few tickets over the number of people reserved when they become available, so those who wait risk getting shut out. Plus, this tour has sold out the last two years (hence the second departure this season). This is a “bucket list” item for many, and lots of fans repeat this trip on a regular basis. See you in Arizona!
Featuring covered, reserved seating for the Grand Floral Parade
