Day 2

After breakfast, we depart for Warther's Museum Festival of Trees in Dover, Ohio. Earnest "Mooney" Warther is best known for his ivory and ebony carvings of steam engines. The museum plays host for a one-week display of over 100 trees, wreaths, and other holiday decorations as a fundraiser for the local hospital. Also, you can tour the family home decorated reminiscent of a 1920's yuletide holiday, and visit the gift shop for some great holiday shopping before departing for lunch. Next, we visit the J.E. Reeves Mansion for a guided tour and lunch. During the holidays all seventeen rooms of the home are decorated for the holiday season. Our knowledgeable tour guide will provide an introduction to the home, its history, and anecdotes about the Reeves family. Following our tour, a delicious lunch is served in the Carriage House at the Reeves Mansion. Designed predominately of Queen Anne styling, it features a Richardsonian inspired archway which invites you to explore the treasures inside, including the Rauch and Lang electric car, the Reeves family sleigh, their 1892 hansom carriage, a restored doctor's buggy, and an orchestral Regina music box. After lunch enjoy a wine and sangria tasting in the Han's Tasting Room and some holiday shopping. Later we depart for Berlin, Ohio and our accommodations at the Berlin Encore, for the next two nights. Our hotel is located in the heart of Ohio's Amish Country, providing you a glimpse into the world of the Amish, a unique slice of Americana. You will have the opportunity to explore stores filled with handcrafted furniture, antiques, folk art and one of the largest year-round Christmas Shops. Following our hotel check in, you will have time to unwind and freshen up before dinner and entertainment. Tonight, we are treated to a delicious buffet dinner at the Encore Banquet Event Center. After dinner, we take our reserved seats at the Amish Country Theatre, attached to the banquet area, for our next holiday show, "Christmas in the Country". This show will delight you with live holiday music, hilarious comedy skits, fabulous ventriloquist Ken Groves, and lots of fun audience participation. Get ready to laugh and sing along with the Amish Country Theater players, quartet and more before retiring for the night. (B, L, D)

Day 3

Enjoy breakfast at your leisure. With part of the morning free you may wish to simply enjoy the hotel's hospitality while you kick back, refresh, relax or take a dip in the indoor swimming pool. Later we depart for the Christkindlmarkt in Canton, Ohio. The Christkindlmarkt is a cherished Canton holiday tradition celebrating its 50th year! Christkindlmarkt is Northeast Ohio's premier juried, holiday-inspired fine arts and crafts show, which attracts visitors from across the country. The market features aisles of exquisite handmade works created by some of the nation's finest artisans including glass, painting, ceramics, photography, jewelry, textiles, floral arrangements, woodworks, holiday items and more. Lunch is available for purchase. Later we depart for the Canton Palace Theatre and take our reserved seats for a "Holly Jolly Christmas Show" this afternoon. The show will feature live Big Band music performed by the John Trapani Orchestra, Jay Spencer on the Kilgen Pipe Organ, choral groups featuring the fabulous Vox Audio, dancing, and much more to kick off the holiday season! This gorgeous theater was built in the 1920's and is one of the few remaining atmospheric theatres in the United States with stars and clouds in the night sky overlooking a Spanish Courtyard. (Portions of the show are subject to change for 2021, but the show will be a holiday variety show). Before returning to our hotel for a good night's rest, a delicious family style dinner is served at La Pizzaria, a tradition in Canton, Ohio since 1949, serving home-cooked Italian recipes for three generations.

Day 4

After breakfast we depart for Wheeling, West Virginia and the Oglebay Mansion Museum. Originally the summer home of Cleveland industrialist, Colonel Oglebay and his family, the mansion is furnished with many period antiques that create a Victorian era atmosphere. Holidays at the Mansion is a tradition that was first started in 1973 and continues today with dozens of talented volunteer decorators lavishly transforming the Museum for the holidays. Stroll through 13 period rooms exploring décor ranging from simple elegance to extravagant. Next, we visit the Winter Fantasy Events at the Good Zoo, which includes a "Holiday Laser Light Show" that is choreographed to Christmas music. After lunch on your own, we settle back and enjoy a holiday themed movie on our drive home, while reflecting on our "Buckeye State" get-away filled with the wonderful sights and musical sounds of the yuletide season!
