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.

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

After breakfast we travel to the historic town of Cass, West Virginia for a ride on West Virginia's newest train ride, the Greenbrier Express. The original 95-mile section of this railroad was first constructed in 1902 by the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway to encourage the development of the lumber industry. Our train excursion today takes us on the northern 15-mile portion of the original railroad, and will travel through the rugged and beautiful Greenbrier River Valley, and the iconic Cass Scenic Railroad State Park to the century-old town of Durbin, West Virginia. Our ride upriver to Durbin passes through a secluded wilderness portion of the Monongahela National Forest and offering unparalleled river and mountain views at every turn of the river. Sightings of deer, river otters, and black bear along with a wide variety of eagles, hawks, ospreys, and other species of aquatic birds are common along the way. A delicious lunch is included in Durbin upon our arrival. This adventure is popular for anyone who has an interest in railroads and history! Later we head for home, concluding our exciting get-away filled with many fond memories of picturesque mountains, delightful regional music and exhilarating railway adventures recalling an era when train travel was an essential part of everyday life!
