November 17—November 20, 2012
It’s not too early to begin thinking about the holidays and we’ve got just the trip to get you in the mood! Join us for a 4-day, 3-night Wisconsin excursion that includes holiday lights, music, scenery and more.
Here’s an overview of the itinerary:
Day 1: We’ll leave Sioux Falls on Saturday, November 17 and travel to the House on the Rock in Spring Green, which is transformed with the splendor and joy of the Christmas season. You’ll be greeted by more than 6,000 collectible Santas of all sizes and types as well as the other thousands of items on exhibit. Accommodations will be at the House on the Rock Resort and includes dinner and a continental breakfast.
Day 2: On Sunday, November 18, you will be charmed by, “Scrooge the Musical” performed at the number one choice for Christmas entertainment, The Fireside Theatre in Fort Atkinson. The breathtaking dancing, gorgeous costumes and beautiful musical score are performed by some of the country’s finest Broadway and regional talent. You will also enjoy the fabulous Sunday Matinee Brunch, which is one of the finest in the Midwest! That evening, you will be treated to a special Christmas performance and dinner at The Dancing Horses Theatre which has delighted audiences with the beauty and grace of their equine stars. A wonderful exotic bird pre-show is also featured. Accommodations for the remainder of the trip will be at the premier Grand Geneva Hotel and Resort where we will receive a guided “Tour of Lights” with tea and cookies to end our day.
Day 3: On Monday, November 19 we’ll begin the day with a deluxe continental breakfast at the Grand Geneva Hotel then travel to Racine, the “Kringle Capital of the World.” There we’ll see how the famous kringles are made and sample them as well. Other Racine sights will also be included. Lastly, we’ll have time to explore Millie’s in Lake Geneva, a one-of-a kind destination with Old World Charm and New World hospitality. Dotted with many unique shops, brick courtyards and a delightful Victorian Gazebo, Millie’s is an escape from the everyday.
