Door County & Mackinac Island

October 3 - October 9

Prepare to be captivated by Door County, Wisconsin! Our time here will be filled with authentic Door County experiences beginning with the Cherry Train tour. The ferry will take us to Washington Island for this narrated tour that introduces us to life on the island, its history, and more. Back on the mainland, we’ll depart for Seaquist Orchards, where our entertaining guide will lead us through the cherry, apple, and pear trees. Of course, our visit to the area would not be complete without a very special Door County meal loved by locals and tourists alike – a traditional fish boil. Locally caught fish will be boiled on an open fire, and we’ll know it’s time to eat when the fiery “boil over” occurs! Then we’re off to the famous Mackinac Island where cars are banned, horses and bikes command the roads. With two nights at the Grand Hotel in this Victorian village, we’ll have plenty of opportunities to tour the island by horse-drawn carriage, sample delicious foods at the famous Grand Luncheon Buffet, and simply revel in the slower pace on the island. After saying goodbye to Mackinac Island, our journey will take us home with a dune buggy ride and visit to Starved Rock State Park along the way. In addition to six nights’ accommodations and fourteen meals, the price includes motor coach transportation, admissions, porterage, taxes, and gratuities. To see the complete itinerary and inclusions check out the brochure.
