Head to the country to refresh the spirit with two musicals! This brand-new itinerary features a vintage train ride, Amish family farm and the home of a US president!
Day 1: Shady Maple and Dutch Apple (L, D)
Arrive in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania just in time for lunch at the Shady Maple Smorgasbord! Eat to your heart’s content, enjoying Amish favorites made from scratch. Get ready to go back for seconds… and thirds! Did you know that Lancaster, PA was once the capital of the United States? Lancaster is also home to former president James Buchanan. Enjoy a private tour of Wheatland, the Buchanan Homestead, led by an expert guide in 19th-century costume.
Tonight, take in your first of two shows, beginning with the uplifting Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Dutch Apple Theater. A colorful journey through ancient Egypt, follow the rags-to-riches story of Jacob’s favorite son, his jealous brothers and the coat of many colors. This magical musical is a dream of a show with an irresistible score!
Spend the night at the beautiful Fulton Steamboat Inn, featuring nautical and Victorian guest rooms in a unique, riverboat setting.
Day 2: Amish Family Farm, Train Ride & Jesus! (B, L)
This morning, immerse yourself in the simple life of Amish Country with a visit to the Strasburg Rail Road and Old Windmill Farm. Begin with a ride aboard a beautifully restored, wooden passenger car pulled by a 100-year-old steam locomotive. Enjoy a light lunch on board of handcrafted sandwiches or a farm fresh salad. Upon your return, the Amish culture comes alive like never before on an interactive and personal visit with the Lapp family. Go behind-the-scenes for an exclusive tour of their private, centuries-old Old Windmill Farm.
This afternoon, it’s the grand finale of your country getaway as you experience Jesus - the newest production presented at the Sight & Sound Theater. See the Bible brought to life in a grand production featuring moving sets, live animals, state-of-the-art special effects and larger than life action. From the streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galillee, the new show is the musical story of the most famous person to ever walk the earth, and the everyday people whose lives he changed forever.
