  • Day 2

    Your Behind Broadway experience today will give you a feel for how it all works. Auditions, rehearsals, readings, financing, reviews; it’s hard to make a hit. We’ll take you behind-the-scenes to meet the performers and even a veteran Broadway reviewer, or “audience matchmaker,” as Peter likes to refer to his talents. Tonight, your first night of theater. Your Tour Directors will be available to direct/escort you. (L)

  • Day 3

    A day to choose your own itinerary. Many will want to go by subway with your Tour Director to Battery Park, then on to Liberty or Ellis Islands by ferry. Those folks will return to Times Square around noon. Depending on baseball schedules, an optional tour of Yankee Stadium may be available this afternoon. Visit The Met, shop at Macy’s; allow us to help you build your day. This evening, another night of Broadway theater.

  • Day 4

    We are headed downtown this morning, to learn the story of Wall Street, visit the historic Trinity Church, see Federal Hall (where George Washington was inaugurated president), enjoy a wonderful casual brunch in a historic restaurant. The afternoon is spent at Freedom Tower. Enjoy the view from the top, spend time in the 9/11 Museum, walk by the reflection ponds, there’s time for it all. Enjoy a classic Italian family-style dinner at Carmine’s. (BR,D)

  • Day 5

    Off to The Bronx, and specifically Little Italy, part of New York’s most colorful neighborhood. We stop in at a fire and police station, to meet some first responders up close and get some unique souvenirs. On Arthur Avenue, we enjoy lunch and meet some of the shopkeepers on a unique 6-block walking tour. We get back to midtown in time for a great dinner at the Capital Grill, then walk a few blocks to Carnegie Hall for a concert by the New York Symphony Pops orchestra. (We saw this show last year and it was an amazing 90 minutes of music in a special place.) Dress circle seating for the concert. (L,D)

  • Day 6

    One of your most memorable vacations ever comes to a close. A late morning/early afternoon departure gets you home by 9pm.

16th Annual Christmas Mystery Tour

One of our most popular trips is back for another year! But here’s the deal: You have to sign up early, or you’ll be on the waitlist, hoping for a cancelation.

This year’s trip visits a destination we have only been to twice in our 37+ year history, but it’s a very special place, especially during the holiday season, when entertainment is king. Chris & Mark will return as your co hosts, which pretty much guarantees you’ll be rollin’ in the aisles. So here are the clues…

Oh. What an interesting place. Who knew? So where should we go for Christmas? Greece? Mexico? To the train station? Maybe the old market has some great holiday gifts? It snows here. A little or a lot you ask? Sorry, that would be giving away too much. They do have a lot of poinsettias, look there’s a tree of them 20 feet high. The Mormons came here. So did the Germans. Probably came on the train I’m thinking. And no, we’ve already been to Salt Lake City. Scratch that one off your list. Las Vegas? Idaho? The Mormons went to those places too. Not sure about the Germans. Just don’t go off half-baked with all this information. There’s a lot at “steak” here. What a beautiful baseball stadium. Who plays there in the summer? Hmm, that’s unique.

Enough with the clues. The package includes your airfare, 11 meals and all the admissions to a wide variety of entertainment that is bound to leave you in the Christmas spirit for the rest of the season. Added bonus: One hotel for four nights, no packing and unpacking. Since many of the people who take this trip go every year, we strongly suggest registering as soon as possible.

A Coos Bay Christmas

First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.

This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.

Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.

The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.
