Visit the John Deere tractor factory in Waterloo. Bring your baseball mit, because our next stop is Dyersville to see the Field of Dreams.
Marvel at the House on the Rock. This extraordinary multi-level home stands atop a chimney-like rock 450’ above the Wyoming Valley. The unique house is a modern architectural wonder with pools, waterfalls, massive fireplaces, and The Infinity Room of windows jutting out over the valley.
This morning you’ll enjoy a boat ride through the upper Wisconsin Dells. The scenic journey winds through majestic sandstone bluffs that cradle the mighty Wisconsin River. You’ll hear about the legends of brave settlers and fearless Indians.
Your day begins at the Manitowoc Maritime Museum where the saga of the Great Lakes is preserved in artifacts and records. On the way to St. Ignace, Michigan, you’ll enjoy the lush scenery of the Hiawatha National Forest at the top of Lake Michigan.
Get ready for the scenic ferry ride to Mackinac Island. Since automobiles are not permitted on the island, you’ll ride in a horse-drawn carriage on a tour of the Island. You’ll be treated like royalty at the famous Grand Hotel for a buffet luncheon. Take the afternoon to explore the Island and Old Fort Mackinac (dating back to 1780) on the high bluff overlooking the harbor.
You will travel farther north to see the breath taking Tahquamenon Falls. Then, it’s off for a boat cruise to the amazing Pictured Rocks on Lake Superior.
Continue west along the Upper Peninsula stopping at Kitch-iti-Kipi to visit the Big Springs in the Palms Book State Park on Indian Lake. This is an amazing site.
Put on your walking shoes for a stop at the Mall of America in Minneapolis. We will then board the Lady Of the Lake for a dinner cruise.
Reflect on the wonderful adventure your had. The new friends and all the adventures along the way!
