Lake Michigan Escape

Image of Lighthouse on Lake Michigan.

There’s just something about spending time on the shores of Lake Michigan.  It’s the smell, the sounds, the gulls floating on the wind – the maritime “feel” is mesmerizing.  We have an amazing day planned exploring the lakeside towns of Port Washington and Cedarburg.  We’ll begin at the 1860’s Lighthouse & Museum. In 1860, a light tower was erected on top the north bluff overlooking downtown Port Washington and the Lake Michigan shore. This historic light station includes the lighthouse with lantern room atop the modified school house design and keeper’s living quarters. Our guided tour includes a climb to the lantern room, featuring a replica 4th order Fresnel lens and fabulous views. After an included lunch overlooking Lake Michigan we’ll visit Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve.  Located on one of the last stretches of undeveloped bluff land along the Lake Michigan shoreline, this jewel features over 1/2 mile of 90 to 100 foot bluffs offering tremendous views of Lake Michigan.  In the beautiful town of Cedarburg we’ll welcome a local guide for a relaxed and slow-paced walking tour (about 1 mile). We’ll discover many hidden gems while noshing on some of the most delicious chocolates and desserts you’ve ever had, tied together with a winery visit and time for shopping. Moderate to considerable slow-paced walking.

$179/person (Includes lunch & treats)

Yellowstone In Depth

THIS TRIP HAS BEEN CANCELLED.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting Yellowstone National Park you know how remarkable and dramatic it is. Be prepared to be amazed again, again, and again on this motor coach journey exploring the Park in great depth. This excursion will be hosted by Jill Hunger, a retired high school and college geology and biology teacher. Jill has been leading tours to Yellowstone since 1993 for the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, MATC, Viterbo University, and Sauk Prairie High School. She was also a Yellowstone Park Tour Guide for four seasons.  We’ll spend five glorious days traversing the Park covering the “popular” sites but also discovering and exploring many of the less traveled regions. The wildlife, the scenery, the gasps in response to the views around each corner, and the vast information provided by Jill make this trip truly unique and exclusive.  In addition to our Yellowstone immersion we’ll explore Grand Teton National Park, Mount Rushmore, Badlands National Park, Little Bighorn Battlefield and so much more. In bus/on route discussions will include Lewis & Clark and Native American tribes of the Dakota’s.  This trip requires walking on uneven ground. This is an integrated trip with some special needs Travelers and their staff also attending.
