All ages of travelers have climbed aboard the motorcoach to visit theatre events like Hamilton, Joseph and Cabaret, in Aurora, and just this past week a visit to see Lyric Opera’s Jesus Christ Superstar, and an amazing Lincoln Highway guided road tour. Upcoming events include Phil and Amy’s “Broadway and More” performance along with their daughter Lucie. They’re all featured again at Starved Rock Lodge’s luncheon/show series. St. Christopher Tours has the motorcoach set for the Aug. 9 show (August 6th - 8th sold out), so hop on board for this most enjoyable one-day trip sure to be a delightful afternoon. Phil and Amy’s “Christmas and Broadway” show returns to the Lodge later this year, Dec. 3-5 again with a motorcoach ready to depart from Tinley Park. Because of the popular demand of the shows, Starved Rock has already booked the duo thru 2019. And speaking of next year, the travelers will visit the Lyric again to see Leonard Bernstein’s “West Side Story” (May 14, 2019). For overnight travelers, comfort, fun, and traveling like family couldn’t be a more enjoyable way to experience their “Authentic America” destinations. Upcoming tours include Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks; an exciting journey through the central/west United States. Some highlights include Mt. Rushmore, The Badlands and the cowboy territory of Buffalo Bill in Cody, Wyoming. A Wyoming evening includes a visit to the Cody Night Rodeo. Experience Old Faithful Geyser and tour the famous Old Faithful Inn, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River with plunging waterfalls, magnificent and breathtaking scenery. They’ll spend two nights each in Cody and Jackson Hole where travelers can enjoy a scenic float trip on the Snake River. Enjoy a chuck wagon feast and another night of beauty under the stars. Call for availability. Every June St. Christopher Tours visit one of their favorite treasures, Mackinac Island, The Mackinac Bridge, bikes, horses and carriages, famous fudge and the historic Grand Hotel. This year includes two nights on the island and a mystery day to top off the five-day adventure. Later in October is a three-day visit to Frankenmuth, Michigan, for a great Bavarian get-a-way that features the colors of autumn, Halloween fun and the world’s largest Christmas store, Bronner’s. Looking ahead to 2019 is a visit to Cape Cod and the surrounding islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. The tour visits the mansions of 10 Mile Drive, Boston, to explore the Freedom Trail and venture out to Provincetown for some spectacular whale watching. Each day travelers return to the comfort of their ocean-front resort in South Yarmouth. Be a part of the traveling family. Phil and Amy look forward to seeing you on board.
