For the holiday season this year, we humbly present a very special Mystery Tour experience. The Christmas Mystery is always the most popular of the year. Early reservations are advised.
The holiday season is grand. It’s a wonderful time to get out and share the joy of life and the season with friends; in this case friends you haven’t even met yet. We’ve chosen one special small American town that carries a unique holiday distinction. Its neighbor villages offer additional opportunities to discover small town hospitality and holiday cheer. Three small towns in all, each with a distinctive flavor. One will offer you the opportunity to share in the most traditional of American holiday traditions. You’ll even trace the lives of two beloved historical figures, one very connected to Christmas.
We can’t tell you any more than that, except to say that this will be very different from any previous Christmas Lights Mystery. Note that we’ve dropped the “lights” name from the itinerary, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see some magnificent light displays. We just want to make the focus a little different this year, on the people and the destination, rather than the twinkling. As was noted last year, Christmas lights from inside a vehicle are what they are.
Oh, and one other thing. We are going to shower you with gifts. You may not need to do Christmas shopping when you get home, you are going to have so much loot. In a unique twist, you’ll be participating in a very special gift giving program that helps the families of American military troops. It’s a cold weather destination, early in the season, and it will be one of the most memorable trips in our 32 years.
*The itinerary includes EVERY meal, 15 in all, plus airfare, door-to-door pick-up and your old buddies Mark and Chris to shovel the snow… we mean show you a good time!

Combining two “C’s” makes for a fascinating trip
Those who enjoy multiple-night stays in a destination are in business. This tour is a 2-night/3-night trip, visiting two destinations. These are working men’s and women’s cities. One is named after a old TV show, the second will remind you of the joy of discovery. The luck of the Irish is a good thing to bring with you, but if you don’t have it, we’ll get you some. One place you’ll visit has been producing “nuts” for over a hundred years. The kind you eat. Maybe.
Have you got rhythm of any kind? If you do, we have found a place that will let your “inner music” come out, in a BIG way. One place produces 30,000 pounds every time it shifts. What the heck does THAT mean? Many people have long forgotten about this part of the 50’s. But we’ll bring it back to life. Music, did we mention that all different kinds of music are a part of your adventure? Includes 12 meals, accommodations in two treehouses (What kind of a clue is that?) for 5 nights, roundtrip air to and from the “two C’s,” and door-to-door airport service.
Last year’s Christmas Lights Mystery Tour is this year’s holiday spectacular. The folks in Virginia really know how to celebrate the holidays – from a driving tour of the lights along the boardwalk in Virginia Beach, to a fireworks display called “Hollidazzle” in Newport News, to the Tacky Lights Tour of Richmond. If Christmas is your holiday, this is your tour!
2016 is the 100th birthday of our National Parks
We honor all of the national park units around the country with this visit to an off-the-beaten-track set of destinations. A number of national park sites are included, along with some state parks, which add to the theme of the trip. Remember, not all park sites are about scenery. Some are historical places, built around learning about history, or the people who live(d) there and their cultures and traditions.
Every great adventures should have a Yellow Brick Road, don’t you think? This trip is no exception. (Some people have just decided we are going to Kansas. That would be wrong.) You’d travel north in August, wouldn’t you? Picture yourself on the shores of a mighty lake or river, sailing along and viewing shapes carved by the winds of time. Or walking among
the remnants of history. Many more people once lived here, but it isn’t a ghost town by any means. Since you are “exploring” on this journey, it’s appropriate that one of your destinations is named for a famed sailor from many years ago. We won’t “hound” you to go inside one attraction, but you will find generations of movement inside. In one place, putting in your “two cents worth” would be particularly appropriate. If you love the great outdoors, and like to learn, this vacation definitely has your name on it. Limited to 28 passengers. Roundtrip air, 15 meals, door-to-door airport service, are all a part of this mysterious adventure. 3150/3500 Gold Passport Points
