Day 1 Tomah, WI
We depart this morning on a fantastic fall
adventure in Wisconsin. We’ll head “Down a
Country Road...” to southwestern Wisconsin
to the village of Cashton, located the heart of
Wisconsin’s largest Amish Community. We
will pick up a local guide who will give us a
“Down a Country Road Tour” of the Amish
area here and bring us to an Amish farm.
She will share with us the rich history of the
Amish, that dates back to the Anabaptist
movement of the 1500s. We’ll learn how
the heritage has survived many generations
and thrives today. Our guide will teach
us traditions and customs of the Amish
including why they dress they way they
do, their courtship and marriage practices
along with what it is like to attend an Amish
funeral. Of course there will be time to visit
the many gift shops here including the
Amish Shop, The Little Red Shed & Emma’s
Kitchen! We’ll continue our travels to Tomah,
Wisconsin for our overnight stay.

Day 2 Sturgeon Bay, WI
Today we will attend the 48th annual
Warrens Cranberry Festival. We’ll pick up
our guide and do a tour of the Cranberry
Marsh. Our tour gives us an up close look
at a cranberry bed to see how cranberries
grow and the equipment used to harvest
cranberries. Known for three miles of
shopping, the festival boasts over 800 arts
and crafts booths, 350 flea market and
antique booths, 100 farms market booths
and 100 food vendors. You’ll have plenty of
time to walk around and enjoy this shoppers
paradise. Later, we’ll head to Sturgeon Bay
and check-in to the Stone Harbor Resort.
We’ll enjoy a delicious included dinner
once we get settled. (B, D)

Day 3 Sturgeon Bay, WI
Our local guide will join us today and show
us around Door County, located on the
peninsula between Green Bay and Lake
Michigan. Our guide will show us the
cultural, natural and maritime history of
Door County. Our day of touring begins
with a lakeside drive featuring a visitor to a
historic Door County Lighthouse, Bailey’s
Harbor Range Lights. Morning stops
also include a guided tour of Boynton
Chapel and a beach walk near the Ridges
Sanctuary. These lakeside areas contrast
the bayside’s steep topography. After
lunch at the famous Al Johnson’s Swedish
Restaurant (where goats graze the roof)
we’ll drive through Peninsula State Park
on the Niagara Escarpment, providing
grand water views overlooking the Bay of
Green Bay. We’ll also visit and explore an
authentic pioneer cemetery, located within
the Park’s boundaries and hear about some
of the County’s early inhabitants, then stop
at a local farm market and winery to feast
on fresh apples and same some wine. We
complete our day with a traditional Door
County Fish Boil for dinner (fish alternatives
available). (B, L, D)

Day 4 Home

at a local cheese shop as we leave town.
