Elvis is Back!

Richmond, VA
Thursday, September 1, 2022

The “King of Rock and Roll” is back with a performance that is sure to bring the house down!  It’s been a while since we have had an “Elvis” tribute artist perform for us, because we were looking for the perfect entertainer. Well, the wait is over as we welcome Travis LeDoyt to the Glen Allen Cultural Arts Center by way of Nashville, Tennessee!  Travis is known as “the world’s best” at portraying young Elvis Presley during his prime in the 50’s and 60’s!  His uncanny resemblance to the “King” will make you look twice when he walks out on stage and his voice and personality will make you an instant believer.  Personal friends of Elvis garner the highest of praise for Travis and his rendition of Elvis.  His claim to fame began as a dare at his high school talent show and with his discovery of an Elvis video performing in the 50’s! Intrigued by the look, moves, and sound of the legend, Travis began mimicking the “King” in his bedroom mirror at home. Slicking his hair back, and dressing the part, he brought Elvis to life at the talent show and the rest you can say is history! Travis has literally performed around the world in countries including England, Scotland, Hong Kong, China, and Argentina! 

Come join us for an exciting afternoon of entertainment that features all your favorite Elvis songs . . .  Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel, Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, Now or Never, All Shook Up, Can’t Help Falling in Love and more!  Travis wants to share his gift with you in what he best describes as . . .  “The Music is Timeless, and Elvis is Too!”     Lunch included in downtown Richmond at Sam Miller.                    $170

Remarkable Richmond

Wednesday – September 28, 2022

While many cities choose to pave over the past, the streets of Richmond are a constant reminder of our nation’s sometimes turbulent, always fascinating history. Sit back and relax as you board the coach for an educational day in Richmond. Learn what makes this city so historic and learn of the new renovations that make for a promising future.

 This tour features an overview of Richmond’s historical and cultural attractions with a knowledgeable and friendly local guide. On this trip, you will see Richmond’s graciously restored historic neighborhoods including:  historic Downtown, site of Thomas Jefferson’s Capitol; Shockoe Slip, a cobblestone restaurant district; Church Hill, noted for its unique cast iron patterns and site of St. John’s Church, original location of Patrick Henry’s famous and passionate “Liberty or Death” speech (we will tour here); and Jackson Ward, known as the Black Wall Street and the Harlem of the South.  Learn about Hollywood Cemetery, a 135-acre Victorian landscaped cemetery high on the bluffs above the James River. It is the final resting place of U.S. Presidents Monroe and Tyler; Confederate President, Jefferson Davis and his family; 25 Confederate generals; 18,000 Confederate enlisted men; and many other notables. Enjoy a visit to the Virginia War Memorial, built in the 1950s to honor those Virginians who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms.   Lunch is included mid-day at the historic John Marshall Hotel. First opened in 1929, it was one of the leading hospitality establishments in downtown Richmond, Virginia.  $150

Annual Fall Spectacular

Staunton, Virginia
Saturday – October 22, 2022

In the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, Staunton, Virginia offers old fashioned Americana at its best.  It is located along the “Great Wagon Road” between the Blue Ridge and the Alleghenies. It has often been on the list for “Best Small Towns in America” and is one of five US cities that has won the prestigious Great American Main Street Awards by The National Trust for Historic Preservation – towns recognized for their commercial district revitalization efforts.

 Start your day with a tour of the birthplace of the 28th president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson Presidential Museum and Library. Interpreters will take you back to 1856 when Wilson was born and discuss his family, upbringing, and the lifestyle of the period. The house has been restored to its appearance when Reverend Joseph Wilson and his family lived there including twelve recreated rooms in the former president’s home containing many items belonging to the Wilsons. Visitors may then proceed with a self-guided tour of the museum and explore President Wilson’s life through seven galleries. The museum also features the President’s original 1919 Pierce-Arrow limousine and a recreated World War I trench complete with lights and sound.  A delicious lunch buffet of breaded shrimp, chicken and pork tenderloin is included mid-day at Mrs. Rowe’s. Next, a professional step-on guide joins you for a Guided, Riding Tour that will include five of the six historic districts of Staunton. Learn about the architectural significant of so many of the homes and buildings. Visit historic Trinity Episcopal Church to view the 12 Tiffany window and beautiful interior.   $190

After touring the White House and White House Visitor Center, lunch will be included at a popular area restaurant as well as an additional attraction in the afternoon.
