Day 1

Day 1: Welcome Aboard! Settle back, relax and enjoy a leisurely drive to "The Mountain State," West Virginia. Our first destination is the Green Bank Observatory, home to the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope in Green Bank, West Virginia. Enjoy a guided tour of the fascinating world of radio astronomy from the pioneering instruments of the 1950's to the world's premier single-dish telescope. Included are science demonstrations and an excursion into a restricted area that takes you up-close to the world's largest fully steerable telescope. A box lunch is included here. Enjoy your meal and an incredible view of the Green Bank Telescope and surrounding mountains. We continue onto Elkins, West Virginia, where we spend two nights at the Wingate by Wyndham Elkins, nestled in the breathtaking Allegheny Mountains. You will have time to unwind and freshen up before we go out for dinner and entertainment at The Gandy Dancer Dinner Theatre. The evening includes a delicious plated dinner, followed by a 2-hour Branson-style show, "The Premier Show". The show features music that spans the 1950's through today. Enjoy country, pop, Motown, gospel, and patriotic music provided by the Mountain Memories Show Band. This musical extravaganza featuring a terrific cast of singers, dancers, comedians and musicians that will entertain all! (L, D)

Day 2

Day 2: After breakfast we depart for the New Tygart Flyer, a classic streamliner train from the 1930's. We will embark on a 4-hour round trip train excursion through West Virginia's majestic wilderness. On board, you will find a souvenir shop, comfortable seating, and enjoy a delicious hobo lunch that is included. The outing features a stop at the High Falls of the Cheat River. Situated in a spruce and laurel grove far from any human activity, the falls are 150' wide and 18' high, and accessible only by rail. Disembark the train and you will find a set of trails and viewing platforms. Following our train ride, we return to our hotel where you will have time to sit, relax and freshen up before we go out for dinner and entertainment at The Gandy Dancer Dinner Theatre. This evening's show, "Tribute to Musical Legends" is a live country music show that is the perfect blend of country classics from some of country music's most legendary artists, and the contemporary country hits of today's country megastars.

Day 3

Day 3: After breakfast we travel to the century-old town of Durbin, West Virginia for a ride on the Durbin Rocket Excursion Train. The Durbin Rocket is a coal-fired steam engine with ties to West Virginia's historic rail and logging industry. You will ride in authentic 1920-era coaches, behind a Heisler No. 6 locomotive as it steams along the free-flowing Greenbrier River in northern Pocahontas County. Our ride covers 10-½ miles in 2-hours and offers many picturesque river and mountain views in the Monongahela National Forest. This adventure is popular for anyone who has an interest in railroads and history! Following our leisurely excursion, feast on a delicious lunch at Al's Upper Inn Club. A hidden gem located across from the Train Depot in the valley of West Virginia, the restaurant offers its customers a relaxed family-friendly atmosphere and home cooked meals. Later we head for home, concluding our exciting get-away with many fond memories of picturesque mountains, delightful regional music and exhilarating railway adventures! (B, L)
