Cherry Blossom of D.C. – Washington, D.C.
Wednesday – April 4
In a city of bronze statues and concrete monuments, the cherry blossoms triumph as an exquisite and wondrous tourist attraction. To witness this incredible explosion of pink blossoms throughout the city, a visit to Washington in the spring is well worth the visit. Enjoy a premier luncheon cruise aboard the Odyssey. Its unique design allows for travel beneath the historic bridges spanning the Potomac. Glass atrium dining rooms offer spectacular panoramic views of the nation’s greatest monuments. This fabulous cruise is by far the most memorable way to enjoy the nation’s capital and to see more cherry blossoms! A delightful menu of creative appetizers, entrees and desserts are prepared daily. Also included today is time on the Tidal Basin near the FDR Memorial for up close views of the blossoms as well as a visit to the Historic Clock Tower at the top of the Old Post Office Pavilion, present location of Trump International Hotel and home to the famed Congress Bells. Please note: This is, on average, the perfect time to see the Cherry Blossom. SignaTours “Does Not Guarantee” the Cherry trees will be in full bloom. Also, please be advised, visiting the Clock Tower is subject to crowds as there are no group reservations available.

“Hunchback of Notre Dame” – Fredericksburg, VA
Wednesday – April 11
The Riverside Centre for the Performing Arts presents . . . the “Hunchback of Notre Dame.” As the bells of Notre Dame resound through the famed cathedral in 15th century Paris, Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There,” observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all. A delicious plated lunch is served prior to the matinee.
