Itinerary


Day 1   New York - Secret Caverns - Niagara Falls
Guests will be picked up in New Jersey and New York in the early morning. We will head north to Secret Caverns in upstate New York. We will then continue on to Niagara Falls, NY where we will see Thundering Water Cultural Show.

Secret Caverns Discovered by a farmer after his cattle wandered into the entrance to cool down, the Secret Caverns are a kitschy and odd alternative to the nearby larger enterprise, Howe Caverns. A 103-step staircase is the only way in or out.

Thundering Water Cultural Show Niagara, like many impressive wonders of nature, is a sacred place for the local Native American people. This show uses dance as a storytelling medium through which to showcase the impact that the falls have had on native culture.

Niagara Falls Illumination Visitors to Niagara can enjoy a nighttime illumination of the falls. The completeness of night view on certain summer evenings may be limited or not available due to late sunset time and government regulations on driving hours.

Standard Hotel: Sleep Inn/RTT Inn, Rochester
Day 2   Niagara Falls - Corning/Watkins Glen
We will then continue to explore Niagara Falls, NY where we will take the famous Maid of the Mist or the Jet Boat Ride, and the Niagara Falls Adventure Movie. Guests will have the chance to choose either to stay in the Falls Park for self-exploration or have an in-depth tour that includes visits to the Whirlpool State Park and Old Fort Niagara. We will then head to Watkins Glen State Park in the Finger Lakes region of New York. In the winter, Watkins Glen is closed and we will instead visit the Corning Glass Museum.

Maid of the Mist This famous boat ride gets passengers up close and personal with the Niagara Falls! The Maid rides right into the mists thrown up by the roaring cascade as the Niagara River tumbles over the edge of the falls.

Jet Boat Ride These exciting boat rides take passengers on a thrilling trip down the Niagara River! This 45-minute round-trip ride zooms through the Niagara Gorge, and even takes passengers to the famous Whirlpool rapids, all of a custom-built jet boat.

Niagara Falls Adventure Movie This movie, which guests will view on an impressive 45-foot-wide screen, tells the history of human interaction with the falls, focusing largely on the "daredevils" who have crossed, boated, and even jumped off them.

Niagara Falls In-Depth Tour This interesting and exciting fuller tour of the greater Niagara area takes guests to sights they otherwise may not see, such as the impressive water formation at Whirlpool State Park or the historic Old Fort Niagara.

Watkins Glen State Park Glen Creek has carved a dramatic gorge into the Watkins Glen hillside, resulting in a large, cavern-like network of rock formations.

Corning Museum of Glass This museum in western New York is dedicated to the history, art, and science behind glassmaking. Its collection contains more than 45,000 objects, some of which date back millennia. It was founded in 1951 and sees 400,000 visitors annually.

Standard Hotel: Quality Inn / Comfort Inn / Days Inn or similar

Guests will have the chance to visit Madame Tussauds Wax Museum if time permits and take a Cruise on the Potomac River that will allow them to see the different sites of Washington DC from the water. We will then travel to Philadelphia, PA to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall in National Independence Park. We will return to New York at night.
