DAY 2

Wake to a deluxe continental breakfast included at the hotel before you depart with a local guide for a full day of touring. Your first stop is in the town of Seneca Falls for a driving tour with narration provided by your local guide. Nestled between the tip of Cayuga Lake to the east and Seneca Lake to the west, Seneca Falls is known at the Birthplace of Women's Rights. Movie director Frank Capra used the town as inspiration for the imaginary town of Bedford Falls in the classic 1946 movie, "It's A Wonderful Life". Your guide leads you next to Auburn to visit the Williard Memorial Chapel. The Willard Chapel is an extremely rare example of the work of Louis C. Tiffany and Tiffany Glass and Decoration Company of New York, as it is the only complete and unaltered Tiffany chapel known to exist. Built in 1892-1894, the chapel's Tiffany interior includes 14 opalescent windows, a rose window, a large figure window, 9 Mooresque-styled chandeliers, a ceiling with gold leaf stencils and mosaic tiles, and more. You will be treated to a 20-minute music selection on the historic Steere and Turner Tracker Organ. Afterwards, you depart for a stop at the Harriet Tubman National Historic Park to see the home of the woman known as "the Moses of her people". From 1859 to her death in 1913, central New York was a center for progressive thought, abolition, and women's suffrage where Tubman continued to fight for human rights and dignity until her death. Enjoy an engaging look back at Tubman's story while here at this farm that she chose as her haven, her community and her family's home in freedom. Lunch will be on your own and at your expense today. Next, you will venture onto the Auburn Sweet Treat Trail for a stop at a hydroponic strawberry field, fresh herbs and veggies. Delightful refreshments will be included for the group along with time to browse the gift shop and grounds. Now it's time for dinner included at a local restaurant with the conclusion of your night filled with the incredible story and sounds of the Rev Theatre Company's performance of Bandstand. It's 1945 and our boys are coming home! Bandstand tells the story of musician Donny Novitski who is about to take on the mission of his life: leading his band of fellow veterans into competition for America's next swing band. Watch this heartwarming story unfold and enjoy the incredible music and the sounds of swing, jitterbug and big band coupled with sizzling choreography in this patriotic tribute to our veterans and the nostalgia of the 1940's. Following the show, you return to the hotel for the night.
