We depart Knoxville this morning traveling northeast through the Tri-Cities
area of Tennessee before entering Virginia. At Wytheville we turn north
and soon enter the Mountain State of West Virginia stopping in Beckley for
lunch at Tamarack. Tamarack’s striking, peaked red roof and attractively
landscaped grounds draw half a million visitors annually into a welcome
respite of visual beauty, Appalachian sounds, and distinctive aromas. It’s
a one-stop-shop for West Virginia culture, heritage, handcrafts, fne art,
regional cuisine and music. Tamarack’s world-renowned partner, The
Greenbrier, provides signature dining which attracts guests for second
helpings of delectable cuisine. After lunch we continue through West
Virginia to Fairmont, for overnight. Dinner is included this evening.

This morning we depart Fairmont continuing to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
for lunch and shopping at Station Square. After lunch a local guide will
take us on a guided tour of Pittsburgh beginning with a ride on the historic
Duquesne Incline offering the most spectacular views of Pittsburgh from
the new Observation Deck. Pittsburgh, banked on all sides by tall, green
hills and cut by three mighty rivers is known as the birthplace of American
History where British troops gained control of North America. Once
the Gateway to the West, it was the fnal stop in America’s push into the
unknown. Today, Pittsburgh is proud and new: America’s Renaissance
City. A city of modern glass cathedrals and Old World, neighborly charms.
We will spend two nights in the Pittsburgh area.

Today we will enjoy a cruise on the Gateway Clipper and discover Western Pennsylvania’s
foliage in all its fall glory. You will enjoy a delicious luncheon from the
tempting buffet table as you cruise the upper Allegheny River. The Captain will
expertly narrate sights you’ll pass along the way. There will be plenty of lively
entertainment as a musician plays all your favorite listening music. Overnight again
in Pittsburgh.

We depart Pittsburgh this morning traveling south into Pennsylvania’s beautiful Laurel
Highlands where we will visit Fallingwater, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Kaufmann family in 1936. The house is cantilevered over a mountain
waterfall and is considered the most important example of modern
architecture in the world. A delicious luncheon buffet is included today
at a local restaurant.The foliage throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland
should be spectacular today. We continue to the Winchester, Virginia area
for two nights.

We have a short drive to Romney where we board the scenic Potomac
Eagle and travel along the peaceful South Branch of the Potomac River,
one of the most picturesque railroads in the United States. Fall comes to
Western Maryland and West Virginia wrapped in a glorious coat of color
that is mostly unseen from the highway. This narrated passenger train
excursion takes you through narrow valleys containing the pristine waters
of the South Branch and gently curves along the valley wall through lush
mountain greenery and offers a view of the river and its wildlife few other
travelers can see. This is the Eastern home of the American Bald Eagle
where the high valley walls and clear river water provide the seclusion and
excellent fshing the eagle requires. Keep your camera ready and don’t be
surprised to see these magnifcent fyers soaring overhead. Our destination
for the night is Winchester, Virginia.

We depart Winchester, Virginia and continue through the Shenandoah
Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia enroute to Salem, Virginia
for lunch. You have seen the best of Virginia, West Virginia and Western
Pennsylvania’s fall colors.
