Fall Foliage River and Rail Expedition West Virginia and Kentucky 10/24/2021 8:30am $1,295.00 (Double)
LIMITED AVAILABILITY-CALL TO MAKE RESERVATIONS (501-868-7287)!! The blaze of color in the mountains of West Virginia is called some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the world! West Virginia fills with miles of colorful splendor and you'll see some of it by rail, as we explore remote areas of West Virginia, where even automobiles cannot access. See incredible colors, rivers, and breath-taking waterfalls, including the High Falls of Cheat, an 18' high, 150' wide waterfall located in one of the most remote and pristine settings in the region. Panoramas of the lofty Appalachians become more beautiful as the train climbs higher, and you feel as if you are entering a completely different world, mainly because of the change in trees, flowers and atmosphere. The rustic overlook affords one of the most awesome, overwhelming spectacles in the east. Dwarfed by distance and almost lost in the vastness of the panorama is the giant Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope, the world’s largest fully steerable radio telescope, at the Green Bank Observatory in the valley near the foot of the mountain. This trip takes you back to an era when steam-driven locomotives were an essential part of everyday life. While in West Virginia we will also stop at Heritage Farm, a replica 19th-century Appalachian Village--and extra special in the fall--and enjoy evening dinners with live entertainment to cap our days! Kentucky is another overnight stop we will make as we travel to and from West Virginia. And our time in the Bluegrass state is just as unique, as we explore the unique Kentucky River Palisades by riverboat, with steep, scenic gorges and limestone outcroppings that stretch for miles. The Kentucky River was a source of livelihood for the Pleasant Hill Shakers and this landscape also makes for some vibrant colors in the fall. You won't want to miss our special Fall Foliage River and Rail Expedition. Price includes 7 days motorcoach transportation, 6 nights lodging, 11 meals (3 dinners, 2 lunches, 6 breakfasts), two scenic railway expeditions throughout West Virginia, Gandy Dinner Theater, Heritage Farm, Paddleboat River Cruise in Kentucky, all taxes, and much more!

Kick back and relax on this fun-filled day to Arkansas wine country that includes a scenic train excursion in the peak of our fall colors. Our tour begins on the Arkansas Missouri Railroad, whose passenger train offers 'A Window Seat to History' -- an opportunity to travel in the style of a bygone era. You can still enjoy the leisurely elegance of real train travel through the mountains and valleys of Northwest Arkansas inside your vintage 1920’s car. Your journey includes lunch and will take you all the way to the top of the scenic Boston Mountains and into the historic Arkansas River Basin. Whatever your reason to take the train, you are almost guaranteed to leave the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad with a feeling of nostalgic joy in your heart. Then, we will enjoy a different kind “vintage” as we tour and taste at three of Arkansas' wineries. Our first stop is Chateau Aux Arc, the world's largest planter of Cynthiana grapes, the largest U.S. Chardonnay vineyard outside California and the largest Zinfandel planter in Arkansas. You get to keep the glass when you leave this picturesque retreat! Then we're off the Post Family Vineyards, growing grapes in Arkansas' river valley since the 1870’s. Muscadine wine, once thought to be near impossible to make into a palate-pleaser, became a focus for this grape grower. You can enjoy either the 100% Muscadine grape juices or signature wines, or both! And our final winery is at Wiederkehr Village. Family owned and operated since 1880, this winery has Arkansas roots, and Swiss heritage. We will experience a wonderful cellar tour, wine tasting, and dinner at Wiederkehr’s Weinkeller Restaurant --housed in original hand-dug 1880 wine cellar listed on National Register of Historic Places.
