We had a great day. The play was wonderful, seats in the theater were great, same for bus driver. My one disappointment was our lunch at Margaritaville. Meal was cold, took too long to receive and the chicken was dried out.

Thank you for sharing your review. Especially the restaurant. We have been searching for new restaurants. With so many closing and refusing to take groups due to staffing it has been difficult. We will continue to search for better restaurants. Thank you

Christmas on the Potomac was the perfect trip to inspire the holiday spirit! The Gaylord Hotel was dressed to the nines in holiday trees, decorations, gingerbread houses, and a spectacular light show! Faith, Director of Garden State Getaways, filled our days with trips to Mt Vernon to tour the estate of George Washington, to Washington DC to visit the museums or the zoo, and the botanical gardens. Nightlife included the choice of many shops, restaurants and MGM casino. Thanks for another great trip Faith!!

Enjoyable day out - good to be back in NYC and on Broadway! Garden State Getaways rocks! Unexpected stop in Bryant Park as we arrived early - very festive for holiday season! Relaxing lunch (and cocktail) at Margaritaville. Short walk to theater. Come From Away was an amazing play - very creative use of props on set; energetic talented cast who showed their range as each played two or more diverse characters; lots of singing both joyful and touching as the story unfolded. Excellent musicians.

The trip was very nice, we had lots to do and our room view was beautiful! We really enjoyed Mount Vernon, the food was delicious. Faith went out of her way to make sure that my grandson got food that he would eat and enjoy at Mount Vernon. We will definitely be traveling with her again!
