Our fall foliage tour this year takes us to the beautiful Finger Lakes and 1000 Islands regions of upstate New York and stunning Niagara Falls!
We start our journey in Lubbock and overnight in Marshall, TX, Birmingham, AL, Charlotte, NC and Hagerstown, MD before arriving at our first stop in the Finger Lakes region to lunch and tour the incredible Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY. Then we head to Watkins Glen State Park to enjoy their many waterfalls and overnight right on the shore of Seneca Lake, the largest finger lake. The next day we will enjoy more of the Finger Lakes and New York 'wine country' at Canandaigua City Pier, Red Jacket Orchards, and Seneca Falls before arriving in Syracuse, NY to spend the night. Our next day will be traveling to Alexandria Bay to enjoy a boat tour of Thousand Islands and Boldt Castle, which is at it's most gorgeous in the fall! We will spend the night in Kingston, ON right on the harbor of the St. Lawrence River. Following a little site seeing in Kingston the next morning, we will begin making our way toward Niagara Falls, ON with stops in Toronto and Mississauga. We will spend two nights in Niagara Falls! We have planned a Behind the Falls tour, Niagara on the Lake, and a ride on the Maid of the Mist to see the mighty falls up close and personal. Next, we head to Jamestown, NY, hometown of Lucille Ball. We will eat lunch in the Tropicana Room (replica of Ricky Ricardo's night club), tour the Lucy Desi Museum, and enjoy Lucy's Home Town Tour of the city. Our overnight that night is in Erie PA. The next day we begin our journey south toward Lubbock with overnights in Indianapolis, IN, Springfield, MO and Dallas, TX.
As always there will be surprise stops along the way!
