If you consider yourself to be an urbanite and you’ve never been to Toronto, there is no time like the present! My boyfriend’s favorite city, and definitely in my Top 3 favorite cities, Toronto offers a melting pot of culture, food, shopping, and history. With friendly locals, unique festivals and celebrations, and an open door policy on comments regarding the city, Toronto is a unique place with a heart of gold.
Also on this trip you get the pleasure of visiting Niagara Falls. Both June and September will offer you stunning views of the falls, whirlpools, and surrounding areas. Feel the mist on your face after you don your yellow slicker for a classic Maid of the Mist boat ride, and enjoy a guided tour of the Falls area. This trip is great for anyone — all ages, all interests.

Berks County Ghosts with Charles J. Adams III
Departures: Shore Mall and Vineland, NJ
Friday, October 14 – Sunday, October 16 2011
$433* per person
Grab your flashlights and Proton Pack and head to Berks County for a chilling weekend with Charlie Adams! An expert on paranormal activity and author of over 30 books on ghosts and haunts, Charlie Adams has been seen on the Travel Channel, National Geographic Channel, History Channel and other national TV network to discuss all things paranormal. Enjoy tours of Crystal Cave, Daniel Boone Homestead, Keim House, Charles Evans Cemetery and Gring’s Mills Park with Charlie. Berks County is a beautiful place, and October is a great time to come to visit and admire the fall foliage — while you get your knickers scared off! Also, be spooked by a tour of Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, a former prison with a unique design that held criminals like Al Capone and Willie Sutton.
This is a great tour to get amped up for Halloween! Grab your sweetie and scare her when she least expects it, bring your kids and enjoy how much they “need” you again because they’re scared, or come with your buddies to see who can last the longest without getting a full body chill.

Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
Departures: Exton and Neshaminy, PA & Wilmington, DE
Saturday, July 16, 2011
$106* per person
A classic trip for every American to take, touring the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is a history lesson not to be missed! Investigate your family history at the American Family Immigration History Center, and learn about the 12 million immigrants who came to America through Ellis Island. Enjoy a self guided tour through the museum, and watch stories of past times unfold via photographs, interactive exhibits, artifacts, videos, and many other displays.
I recommend this trip especially for families with children. When I was in 6th grade I had the pleasure of touring the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with my family, and my impressions of the size and magnitude of the statue still stick with me to this very day. A great way to make learning fun for the little ones in your life! And of course every good day ends with a satiating delicious meal, and this one does too! Enjoy a full course chicken dinner before you board your Motorcoach home.

Departures: Colonial Park, Camp Hill, and Traditions of America PA
Saturday, August 13, 2011
$113* per person
As a previous Maryland resident, I can tell you from experience that Annapolis is a great place to take a day trip! From sampling delicious crab delicacies, to strolling the streets lined with beautiful 18th century buildings, to peeking in the small ice cream shops and boutiques or just sitting by the water and enjoying the atmosphere, Annapolis is a modern day Maybury with a nautical theme. Enjoy a guided tour of the U.S. Naval Academy, lunch at the Drydock Restaurant, a narrated sightseeing cruise of Annapolis Harbor and Severn River aboard the Harbor Queen, and a trolley tour of historic Annapolis.
I recommend this trip for couples looking for a nice day-long get away, anyone who is interested in the Navy or military, history buffs, families, and “girlfriends” getaways… I know… that’s pretty much everyone, but Annapolis really is that versatile of a place!
