Day 1 – On the Missouri highway designated “They Way of American Genius” you’ll be introduced to three “home town” heroes: Mark Twain, Walt Disney, and James Cash Penney. Experience the wit and wisdom of American author and humorist during Mark Twain Live as actor Mike Randall brings Twain to life. Have you ever wondered at the creativity of Walt Disney? See a unique collection of Disney family artifacts for the back story of the genius of Disney at the Walt Disney Hometown Museum. Today you’ll also see the James Cash Penney (JC Penney) Memorial Library and Museum.

Day 2 – A narrated 14-mile trolley ride introduces you to major attractions in Hannibal, Missouri. We’ll stop at the Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum. There you’ll be greeted by none other than Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher! Relax during a dinner cruise on the old fashioned paddle wheel Mark Twain Riverboat. During this two-hour tour, enjoy a buffet dinner, dancing, and music – and most of all, the glorious sunset.

Day 3 – Today, see the beauty of Villa Kathrine on the river bluff in Quincy, Illinois. Take time to shop at the Galesburg Seminary Street Historic Commercial District. You’ll also see the Railroad Museum and ride the rails on the Amtrak,

Day 4 – On the way home, we’ll stop for a visit in Amish Country in Davis County, Iowa. A step-on-tour-guide will point out the historic square, homes, and courthouse as we head to Yoder’s Kountry Korner (bakery and hand made Amish furniture) and then on to The Buggy Shop. Lunch will be at the Mennonite Church, and we’ll finish the day at the Dutch Country Market. As is the custom in Amish Country, please ask permission before taking photos of people, their homes, farms, or businesses.
