The Crooked Road – Southwest Virginia
August 3-5, 2018
Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail is a driving trail stretching 333 miles through some of the most scenic areas in Southwest Virginia. It’s “Where America’s Music Was Born . . . And Lives On!” Here, you will find the roots of American music . . . roots that run deep. This region is home to the World’s “Old Time Mountain Music,” and as you’ll come to know – the Birthplace of Country Music!
Your experience begins in the small Virginia town of Floyd, home of the “Friday Night Jamboree.” Enjoy old-time and bluegrass music and dancers filling the streets. More than a music venue, the Country Store is a gathering place for musicians, dancers, and visitors from around the world. In fact, the entire street comes alive with authentic Southwest Virginia’s old-time and bluegrass traditions. Before the festivities, enjoy “Dinnertime” that showcases the best in “Down Home Country Cooking.”
Next, travel to Abingdon for a delightful show at the famous Barter Theater. A delicious dinner precedes a ride on the truly “Crooked Road” as you travel through the countryside en route to Hiltons, Virginia, home of the Carter Family Fold. “Sweet Mountain Music” fills the air with sounds of the best “Old-Time” country and bluegrass music! Bring along those dancing shoes & clog or flat-foot to the country music. The Carter Family Fold recorded over 300 songs, laying the foundation for what we know today as “Country Music.”
Your last day on “The Crooked Road” begins with a fascinating Guided Tour of Bristol, Virginia, designated by Congress as the official “Birthplace of Country Music®” along with lunch and entertainment by a local personality. Your tour includes a visit to the Birthplace of Country Music Museum! An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the museum tells the story of the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings, explores how evolving sound technology shaped the success and highlights how this rich musical heritage lives on in today’s music. Bristol’s influence on Country Music continues to play an important and influential role in the region, and around the world.

Niagara Falls Sojourn – Niagara Falls, Ontario
September 4-7, 2018
Niagara Falls is actually the collective name for three individual waterfalls . . . the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls. One of North America’s 18 “Natural Wonders,” the Falls straddle the international border between Canada and the United States and were formed when glaciers retreated during the last ice age. Water flowing over the Falls originate from five of the six great lakes that combine to form the Niagara River. This river and the water within has an impressive journey that eventually makes its way to the Atlantic Ocean. The powerful falls with all their beauty and might, attract more than “30 Million Visitors” a year!
Your Niagara Falls Sojourn includes a Comprehensive Niagara Falls Tour or as your Professional Canadian Guide might say . . . your “All Things Fall” Tour! Witness Table Rock, famous for the thunderous roar of its fast-moving water rushing over the brink at Horseshoe Falls. Visit Floral Clock, a unique exhibit featuring over 16,000 carpet bedding plants and a 10-foot wide water garden and clock tower housing Westminster Chimes that ring on the quarter hour. Tickets are also included for the incredible IMAX Theatre and their showing of . . . “Niagara-Miracles, Myths & Magic.”
One of the highlights of your “Falls” tour is a sightseeing cruise aboard the Hornblower. Onboard you’ll get an “up-close and personal view” of Niagara Falls! Feel the mighty power of the water as the Niagara River pounds the lake below sending cold clouds of water and mist high into the air . . . Raincoat Provided! You’ll have a chance to “Experience the Magic” at Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, a tropical paradise full and lush vegetation, trickling waterfalls and thousands of vibrantly colored butterflies.
While at the Park, take a breathtaking stroll along White Water Walk, and experience the raw power and peril of the Niagara River’s Class 6 white-water rapids.
A visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake is also included where you can visit the shops, and stroll through one of the loveliest towns in Ontario.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention – “Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Show,” Canada’s Longest Running Dinner Musical!
Last and certainly not least is The Skylon Tower, your host for a delicious farewell dinner in their “Revolving Dining Room,” overlooking the Falls. Spectacular views of the beautiful landscape can be seen in every direction. We couldn’t think of a more incredible way to end the tour!
