DEPARTING FROM PLYMOUTH
Depart for Pennsylvania this morning in our luxury chartered Plymouth & Brockton motor coach, arriving in LANCASTER late afternoon.
Check into the Country Inn of Lancaster. Enjoy a Welcome Reception followed by a nice Italian Style Family Dinner at the Inn.
After a deluxe continental breakfast (daily), we take the short ride to INTERCOURSE and spend the morning in KITCHEN KETTLE VILLAGE. Stroll along the 42 shops and restaurants built around the nationally celebrated Jam & Relish Kitchen. Observe local farm women put up more than 80 varieties of jams, jellies, preserves, sauces, dressings and much more. Enjoy some free samples! We will have time for lunch on our own at the Village.
This afternoon we meet our local guide and venture into the “Roads Less Traveled” through the heart of the Amish Farmlands. Enjoy picturesque scenery as you meander across country roads where time seems to stand still. See the pristine Amish farms, one-room schoolhouses, wind wheels, Amish “phone booths”, and farmers working the fields with their horse or mule drawn plows. We’ll also visit an Amish Quilt Store where we’ll see many selections on display. We return to our hotel and have time to freshen up before enjoying an all you can eat Smorgasbord at Hershey Farms. This is followed by the spectacular Show next door at the amazing Sight and Sound Theater, to witness a memorable performance of “JOSEPH”. This theater is the largest Christian theater in the nation and includes spectacular sets with a professional cast and a variety of live animals!
This morning we visit KREIDER FARMS and observe a real working farm, supplying milk, fresh eggs, ice cream and much more. We get a behind the scenes peek at high tech farming. We’ll continue to the town of HERSHEY and visit Founders Hall at the Milton Hershey School. Our tour takes us past Penn State Medical School, Hershey Park, Hotel Hershey, Hershey Gardens, plus two huge Chocolate Factories.
Hershey’s is the largest chocolate manufacturer in North America and was founded by Milton Hershey in 1894. Hershey’s products are sold in about sixty countries around the world and is one of the oldest chocolate companies in the U.S. Enjoy an exciting simulated factory ride tour, as well as an opportunity to create your own Candy Bar Attraction, and Chocolate Tasting Adventure. Also experience a new attraction, the 4 D Experience!
Lunch will be on our own at the Food Court, located on the premises.
