We’ll also visit the heartland of the Amish Country in Lancaster County and enjoy the Sight & Sound production of "Queen Esther."

That afternoon, we’ll reboard our tour bus and drive over to Valley Forge where we’ll be met by a tour guide who will board our bus for a descriptive tour of the famous Revolutionary War battleground. After that, we’ll head out for dinner and back to our hotel.
