There will be an early morning departure with a rest stop prior to our arrival at GERMAN VILLAGE. Our group will be guided through the brick streets lined with quaint homes, gardens, shops, galleries and restaurants. Included in our STANDARD WALKING TOUR we will also enjoy the EXPLORE BEYOND THE DOOR TOUR. We will be invited to explore two private German Village homes. This most popular tour offers a wonderful way to see the innovative renovation and design efforts of the residents living in German Village today. No visit to German Village would be complete without a lunch stop at SCHMIDT'S. Today we'll enjoy SCHMIDT'S BEAUTIFUL TOUR BUS BUFFET. Offerings include Schmidt's Bratwurst, Smoked Bahama Mamas, Baked Chicken, Chunky Applesauce, Green Beans with Bacon, Sauerkraut with Pork, German Potato Salad, Tossed Green Salad, Rolls and Condiments, Schmidt's Mini Cream Puffs, and Beverage. After lunch, there will be time to explore the many and varied shops centered in the Village. Our motorcoach will transport passengers to the book store.
Prior to leaving for home, let's make a stop at the beautiful FRANKLIN PARK CONSERVATORY AND BOTANICAL GARDENS. This is a horticultural and educational institution showcasing exotic plant collections, special exhibitions and the Dale Chihuly artworks.
