and a stop in LITITZ
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2020
What could be more delightful than a drive through the beautiful countryside of PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH
and a visit to HISTORIC LANCASTER.
The City was founded by John Wright in 1730 and named after his birthplace in England. It was the colonial capital for one day during the Revolutionary War when the Continental Congress fled Philadelphia.
You will have an opportunity to enjoy many styles of beautifully preserved architecture in the city's tree-lined streets, and peruse an amazing array of selected art galleries and shops in the middle of downtown. Our group has reserved staggered entrance tickets to the DEMUTH MUSEUM, housed in the former home and studio of modernist CHARLES DEMUTH. In addition to a selection of the artist's early paintings, a special exhibit of works by another local artist, MICHAEL TYMON is on view.
Lunch will be on your own and suggestions will be provided. You can pick up fresh produce and local delicasies at the iconic LANCASTER CENTRAL MARKET.
A stop will be made to shop and wander in LITITZ
, once dubbed the "coolest small town in America" before we return to Philadelphia.
The trip is limited to 24 travelers in order to practice proper social distancing and masks are required at all times while on the motor coach and in the Museum. A flu shot is required at least two weeks prior to departure. THE COST
