the many attractions and landscapes that are unique to this quaint area of this North-Central state. We invite you to join us as we take part in an
authentic Door County fish boil, ride the famous Cherry Train on Washington Island, and enjoy a performance by the local Peninsula Players. On
our way home, we'll stop in Sheboygan to tour the Kohler Factory and visit their Design Center, and in Greendale we'll be treated to a behind-thescenes test kitchen tour. And, did we mention that all of this will take place in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, during one of the
most beautiful times of year? This tour is a perfect prelude to a perfect autumn season.
DAY 1 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2016
CEDAR RAPIDS/IOWA CITY TO DOOR COUNTY
Depart from your designated location this morning for a fun-filled trip to Door County, Wisconsin! We'll stop en route to enjoy lunch and a look
at around at Quivey's Grove, a four acre country estate just outside of Madison. The house is connected by a 60 foot long tunnel to the Stable
Grill, which was once a horse stable. We'll be given an informal history of the buildings, furnishings, and antiques, as well as the opportunity to
go through the underground tunnel. After lunch we'll continue our journey to Door County. We arrive in Fish Creek and check into our hotel,
The Landmark Resort, our home for the next three nights. Dinner tonight is a unique experience that can only be found in Door County—a
traditional Door County Fish Boil! Once you experience it, you're sure to start planning your return. It's that good!
DAY 2 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2016
Following breakfast at the hotel this morning, we depart for a more northern view of Door County. We'll stop just outside of Sister Bay at
Seaquist Orchards. Here, as we drive through several acres of cherry, apple, and pear trees, our entertaining and informative guide will fill us in
on the inner workings of this family run orchard, in operation since 1986. After the tour, we're invited to their market area for samples and
shopping! With a variety of salsas, jams, pie fillings, mustards, homemade fudge, syrups, and more…we're sure you'll find something pleasing
for just about any palate. Next, we'll move farther north to the Northport Pier, where we will park the coach and board a ferry to Washington
Island. The Cherry Train Tour on Washington Island is a must-do for any Door County traveler! Our narrated tour will cover 15 miles of this Lake
Michigan island as our guide describes life on the island—past and present—and highlights natural history, geology, settlement, economy, and
how island life today compares with the island life of long ago. We'll have lunch and then possibly some free time to look around the island or
browse the local shops before we take the ferry back to the mainland. On the mainland, we'll board our coach and make our way south,
stopping again in Sister Bay, to enjoy dinner at the famous Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant. Al Johnson's is an authentic Swedish, familyowned restaurant, where you can find goats grazing the sod roof—making this one-of-a-kind restaurant one of the most famous in Door
County. Inside, young ladies in Scandinavian garb dish out limpa bread and Swedish meatballs. A real treat!
DAY 3 WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2016
Start your day with breakfast at the hotel and free time to browse Fish Creek on your own. Take the morning to explore the area shops or spend
some time in Peninsula Park, where you'll find a breathtaking view of the bay from Weborg Point. Enjoy lunch on your own at one of the
restaurants in the quaint community before we meet as a group for our afternoon activities. This afternoon, we'll depart for Egg Harbor, named
by Budget Travel as one of the “Coolest Small Towns in America.” Egg Harbor boasts a breathtaking expanse of sky that mirrors the azure waters
below. We'll spend some time in the downtown area, where we'll stroll thru the shops, galleries and restaurants that reside in lovingly restored
historic buildings, as well as newer buildings that capture the village's old Wisconsin charm. After some time exploring, we'll enjoy dinner at a
local restaurant followed by a performance by the local Peninsula Players. Beginning simply with “two planks and a passion,” The Peninsula
Players have a 74 year history which is as captivating as the plays staged there. Patrons have returned year after year, drawn by the theatre's
tradition of providing exceptional professional productions of classic and contemporary literature, the talent of its acting company, and the
theatre's serene location along the shores of Green Bay.

DOOR COUNTY TO SHEBOYGAN
Enjoy breakfast this morning before we board the coach and make our way to Kohler, Wisconsin for a Kohler Factory Tour. Our tour will take us
on a journey through Kohler's rich history showing just how far they've come since the first enameled horse trough/hog scalder. Discover what
Admiral Byrd, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the PGA, and an undying spirit of bold innovation have in common! When we visit the threelevel Kohler Design Center, visions of our dream kitchen and bathroom will appear as we explore this stunning showcase of innovative product
design and technology, creative achievement, and American history. A source of inspiration for more than 150,000 consumers, builders,
architects and designers each year, the Kohler Design Center is an intriguing blend of past, present and future. This evening, we'll enjoy
accommodations and dinner at The Blue Harbor Resort and Spa, on the shore of Lake Michigan.
DAY 5 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2016
SHEBOYGAN TO HOME
Following breakfast this morning, we'll begin our journey home. Along the way we're going to make a few fun stops! Our first stop is in beautiful,
historic Greendale, located on the south edge of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the Greendale Visitor Center, home of Reiman Publications, you'll
be greeted by the aroma of fresh-baked cookies, and see hundreds of Taste of Home cookbooks, aprons, cookware and kitchen gadgets galore
in the Greendale Visitor Center Store. Our Behind-the-Scenes Test Kitchen Tour will send us home with a completely unique experience, along
with a bunch of goodies you're sure to love! We'll enjoy the nostalgia of an old time soda shop while having lunch at Ferch's Malt Shoppe and
Grille. Our next stop, Old World Wisconsin, will send us on a journey into the past. A vivid re-creation of the working farmsteads and
settlements, established by European immigrants in America's heartland, with teams of oxen and horses working in the fields, farm folk
preparing hearty meals over wood-burning stoves, and the heirloom plants in well-tended gardens, will plant us right in the heart of life in early
Wisconsin. With a renewed appreciation of our past and present innovations, we'll continue our journey home, filled with memories of a
fantastic fall trip.
