It’s been many years since our last journey aboard the California Zephyr. This time you have a choice in accommodations (and the opportunity to save a little money). Compartments on board are deluxe bedrooms with an enclosed private bathroom/shower. Or you can choose a roomette, a smaller accommodation with shared bath and shower rooms. Both compartment types can accommodate two people, but the roomette is a much smaller space. Questions about Amtrak? Please contact Kevin or Michael in our office.

Arizona_springtraining

22nd Annual Spring Training in Arizona

5 Days, March 12th - 16th

Join us as we head once again to Arizona for baseball in the springtime. Cactus League games every day (generally sitting in the shade – which is surprisingly important), some great grub and the chance to talk baseball with former players. Our annual baseball banquet always features engaging conversation from a former major league broadcaster, player or umpire (Al Cark, former umpire, spoke last year). It promises to be a great evening of baseball stories and memories. Our old buddy, former ML ballplayer Lou Klimchok, will also be on hand for a second baseball talk.

Centrally located rooms at a Marriott Hotel (with a great full buffet breakfast daily) and a tour of the unique Magic Castle (a one-of-a-kind attraction) are featured in the package. The schedule of games is not announced until November. We strongly encourage you to register now and take advantage of the lower price, which helps us in purchasing tickets. Additional Early Payment $avings are available.

Nevada_ghosttown

Ghost Towns of Old Nevada

6 Days, March 29th - April 3rd

Our Goodsprings Ghost Hunt will be conducted by Robert George Allen. At the age of 7, Robert had his first ghost encounter when he was visited by the spirit of a family member who would sit at the foot of his bed. The deceased man would smile at young Robert and then his image would dissolve. His parents thought he had an overactive imagination. As Robert got older, he became a musician with an interest in hypnotism. His musical career took him to Vegas’ biggest showrooms over 25 years, but he never lost his interest in the paranormal. He created the Haunted Vegas Tour in 2004, and along with the Goodsprings Ghost Hunt, has received numerous awards from Trip Advisor and others. If you’re not a believer going in, you may be a believer coming out…

The Good, The Bad and The Brave: A Mystery Tour

6 Days, May 2nd - 7th

Our featured long-distance Mystery Tour for next spring has a distinctive historical twist. If you are student of American history, you have found your tour. The itinerary includes steamboats (don’t immediately think the Mississippi River, because you might not be right), bank robbers, battles that did (and didn’t) take place, and a look at one of the planet’s biggest historical events.

You’ll stay in a college town and a classic little village, each for two nights. An overnight in the small city next to the big one of the similar name rounds out your 5 nights of travel. Great statesmen, a trip that didn’t get there, and even a tiger shows up on the scene at one point. Will you be brave enough to go inside?
