We begin our trip north with a narrated driving tour of Albany, the State Capital of New York. Afterwards we will stop at Lake Luzerne to see where the Hudson and the Sacandaga Rivers converge. Dinner will be included enroute to our hotel.
After breakfast we will travel to Glens Falls, a small waterfall whose hydropower made it an ideal site for a number of early watermills, used to grind grist and to power sawmills. Enjoy the view as our guide shares more about its history. After a short stop to view the "Last of the Mohicans" mural hanging in the lobby hall of the Queensbury Hotel we head to Lake George. On the way, we will drive up Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway, a 5-mile scenic highway with spectacular views of Lake George and the High Peaks of the Adirondack Mountains. Next, we set sail on a luncheon cruise on beautiful Lake George aboard Lac du Saint Sacrement. We'll enjoy lunch paired with live music…take a spin around the dance floor or sit back and enjoy the views! Today's touring concludes at the Fort William Henry Museum. Discover this British fort where history comes alive with costumed soldiers and military demonstrations. Tonight, you are free to enjoy dinner on your own in the town of Lake George.
After breakfast, our day will begin with a guided tour of Saratoga Springs. Known as the "Queen of Spas," this town has a rich heritage as a health resort and gambling center for much of the 19th and 20th centuries. With 125 healing springs, it is still today "the Queen". The history, architecture, and rich horse racing tradition will be unveiled during our time here. Hear all about the historic racetrack, marvelous mansions, and famous residents. There will be free time in downtown Saratoga Springs for you to have lunch on your own at one of the many eateries. Next, we will visit Old Friends at Cabin Creek, a living museum of horse racing for all thoroughbred racehorses, both known and unknown, to enjoy a dignified "retirement home". The horses are able to frolic in their spacious pastures and live their retirement years in peace. Some even love to greet visitors. Operated by volunteers, a small gift shop and donations help fund this non-for-profit facility. This afternoon you can choose to try your luck at The Saratoga Casino or take a driving tour of the suburbs of Saratoga Springs. Dinner this evening will be at a local restaurant. We'll stop at Martha's Dandee Creme where you can purchase some of the best ice cream in the East! First starting as a chicken farm, it quickly transformed into the best ice cream around. No wonder it's been in business for 76 years!! The Rooster, when he was alive, would greet guests, thus the insignia of Charlie, the rooster.
After breakfast we'll begin our journey home. Enroute we will stop at the Museum at Bethel Woods for a tour and lunch. Some visit to relive the past and their journey to Woodstock, others come to experience what it was like for the first time. As you step inside the exhibit you hear the echo of 450,000 chanting "no rain" and see the stories of those who were actually there. Through artifacts, films, music - and even a hippie bus - you will be inspired not only by what was the most prolific three-day festival in history, but by the ideals that remain relevant today. Our arrival home is scheduled for late afternoon.B, L
