Stillwater Getaway

Depart: Saturday, August 4, 2018 - 6:15 AM
Return: Sunday, August 5, 2018 - 9:00 PM

Excited and hope you are too for this weekend trip that offers a variety of activities that include a dinner playhouse with lunch, shopping, narrated trolley tour, historic home tour and free time in Stillwater, MN all in just two days!

Headed to Minnesota we begin with a morning stop at Lake Coffee & Ice Cream for coffee & a muffin! Our first attraction will be the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre to see the production of “Disney’s Newsies – The Broadway Musical”! Inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City, Jack Kelly hawks the headlines day-in and day-out with countless other newsboys trying to save enough to make his dreams a reality. New York World publisher, Joseph Pulitzer, realizes he can maximize profits by raising the price of the “papes” and does so without a word to the “Newsies.” Upon seeing Pulitzer’s greed, the newsboys protest and declare a strike against all the publishing giants. Realizing it will take more than his friends to make a difference, Jack rallies all the “Newsies” in New York City. Through courage, determination, and friendship the “Newsies” are ready to seize the day and take a stand.

We then travel to Eagan, MN to our overnight accommodation at Hampton Inn. A little rest and we move onto our evening meal at Cafe Zupa’s. After dinner your choice is a little shopping at the Twin Cities Premium Outlet Mall or be delivered back to the hotel for an early evening. After breakfast on Sunday, we travel to Stillwater for a narrated old-time trolley tour where we will experience the charm and beauty of Stillwater located on the banks of the scenic St. Croix River. Stillwater is best known as the “Birthplace of Minnesota.” It evolved from a booming lumber town full of beautiful old Victorian Mansions to “One of the prettiest little towns in America”. The Stillwater community once was given the choice of having a university or a prison – the folks chose the prison. We will tour the Home of the Prison Warden followed by a short ride downtown with free time the rest of the afternoon. We then board the coach for our return trip back to Newton with great memories of our “Stillwater Getaway”. (A fast food stop and restroom break along the way back)

Tour includes: motor coach transportation with driver tip, overnight accommodation at Hampton Inn, 3 meals (lunch at Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, evening meal at Cafe Zupa’s, hot breakfast buffet), morning break with coffee & muffin, narrated tour on Stillwater Trolley, tour of the Home of the Prison Warden, taxes & gratuities on the above mentioned meals & attractions.
