Best of Niagara Falls USA and the Amish Country

Including Queen Esther at the Sight and Sound Theatre

Day 1

TRAVEL TO PENNSYLVANIA:

Early this morning we leave North Carolina behind as we begin our week-long adventure to Niagara Falls and the Amish Country. We travel through some of the most rugged and beautiful scenery in the country as we make our way through West Virginia. We overnight north of Pittsburgh.
Day 2

NIAGARA FALLS • ADVENTURE THEATER • NIAGARA POWER VISTA • DINNER:

We arrive in Niagara Falls, NY in time to check out the Visitors Center and take time for lunch in one of the nearby restaurants. Next, we discover Niagara Falls from the edge of your seat at the Niagara Adventure Theater. The big screen experience brings reality to life as we witness the incredible stories and history of the falls. Just 4 miles downstream at the Niagara River Gorge, we visit the Niagara Power Project Vista. Set your inner engineer free at the Niagara Power Vista! Here you may operate a power plant at the control room simulator, immerse yourself in a surround-sound, multi-sensory Power-Up 4D theatre experience, ride a thrilling 4-D virtual roller coaster where you experience how a drop of water is turned into a unit of energy, and marvel at beautiful view of the Falls. Enjoy an included dinner together this evening. We overnight in Niagara Falls, NY for two nights. (D)
Day 3

CAVE OF THE WINDS • MAID OF THE MIST • NIAGARA FALLS • ILLUMINATION DISPLAY:

We spend the day enjoying the classic North American landmark, Niagara Falls USA, America’s oldest state park. We take the elevator to the base of the gorge to experience the raging whitewater as we board the famous Maid of the Mist boat for an up-close view of the American & Canadian Falls. We will literally be covered in the mist. Don’t worry, you will be furnished with a raincoat. While we’re a little wet, we’ll take a journey behind the American Falls at the unique Cave of the Winds giving us a very up-close view of Bridal Veil Falls. After lunch, we listen to our Niagara NY tour guide as she shows us around and shares facts and stories of their “side of the falls”. After dinner, we will return to the falls for the Illumination! See hundreds of LED lights create a breathtaking view you will remember for years to come.
Day 4

LANCASTER • AMISH DINNER:

Leaving Niagara behind this morning we can understand why so many people return again and again to see this unforgettable sight. We mosey back to Pennsylvania, traveling by the mighty Susquehanna River, which we’ll follow nearly to our overnight destination of Lancaster for a two-night stay. We enjoy a delicious Amish farm feast, complete with meats, vegetables, breads and desserts. (D)
Day 5

AMISH COUNTRY TOUR • QUEEN ESTHER AT SIGHT & SOUND THEATRE:

This morning we meet our local guide as we begin a day of sightseeing in the Pennsylvania Amish country. We’ll seem to travel back in time to an era when life was simpler, lived at a slower pace. The Amish today live much as their ancestors did. The children still walk to one-room schoolhouses and families still travel to town by way of horse and buggy. Next, we stop at Kitchen Kettle where you’ll have time for lunch and shopping in their unique shops. This afternoon we take our seats for Queen Esther, a captivating tale of beauty and bravery. Experience one of the most riveting Bible stories as it comes to life with magnificent sets, special effects, and live animals in this original stage production from Sight & Sound Theatres. (D)

This morning we continue our journey home, but what a wonderful week together this has been!
