ALL ABOARD for an EAST COAST ADVENTURE! Join us as we head to VERMONT to visit BENNINGTON APPLE BARN, HEMMINGS AUTOMOBILIA MUSEUM, and hop aboard the CAFÉ LAFAYETTE DINNER TRAIN…the best seat in the house for the Fall colors and sunset.
Then it’s on to the most “scenic route in America” as we travel the KANCAMAGUS HIGHWAY, stopping at COVERED BRIDGES and ROCKY GORGE. Then, mid-morning, we’re back on board the CONWAY SCENIC RAILWAY NOTCH TRAIN, getting a front row seat to dramatic natural scenery past sheer bluffs, steep ravines, cascading brooks and streams, and across FRANKENSTEIN TRESTLE. Then, on to FADDEN’S GENERAL STORE, family-owned since 1896, a tour of MAPLE SUGAR HOUSE, the MAPLE MUSEUM, and even tastings!
Then it’s time to GET OUR HALLOWEEN ON in gorgeous and unique SALEM, MA! At the SALEM WITCH MUSEUM, “you are there” as the infamous witch trials are reenacted. We’ll tour the HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES and see the “SPIRIT OF THE GABLES” performed in the house! We’ll also witness “THE LEGACY OF THE HANGING JUDGE,” performed at the NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE BIRTHPLACE. While in Salem, our second day includes the WITCHCRAFT AND GHOST EXPERIENCE, The WITCH DUNGEON MUSEUM, and free time to explore the city with a HOP ON/OFF TROLLEY.

As night falls, it’s off to OLD STURBRIDGE VILLAGE where THE SLEEPY HOLLOW EXPERIENCE is sold out every year. We’ll be ghoulishly guided through the village’s countryside where we will encounter Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, and the HEADLESS HORSEMAN himself!
