About this trip

Join Best of Times Travel on this unique and culturally rich day trip during the peak of the fall foliage season.  We head north to Vermont and enjoy the fabulous fall foliage unfold before us on the hills and mountain tops of NH as we drive.  Our first stop of the day will be Quechee Gorge for some amazing views of the area and surrounding foliage.  From here we will head to the headquarters of Simon Pearce and enjoy a fantastic meal at the Mill Restaurant.  They use local ingredients for their meals and the Vermont Cheddar Soup is mind-blowing!  After our lunch we will enjoy a guided tour of the factory and watch some hand made glassblowing in progress.  Following our stay at Simon Pearce we will travel to the King Arthur Factory.  While here see some tasty pastries being made or take some time to browse through the gift shop.  It’s a bakers delight!  Enjoy the ride home with great views.

This was a fast paced tour of Nashville with lots to see and do over the four days/three nights and allot of walking! Best of Times ensured our time in Nashville was maximized with behind the scenes tour of the Ryman and Opry as well as performances at both in addition to the dinner show with the Oak Ridge Boys. The 'step on' guide, Ed for a tour of Nashville was fantastic as was our bus driver, Michael! We had a delicious dinner buffet at the White Horse Saloon which had a TV show back in the 70's-80's and watched country line dancing as well as listened to live country music. We also had a luncheon on Steamboat Jackson which is a paddle wheel boat and the entertainment was top notch. We toured Studio B and the Country Music Hall of Fame. I probably left something out but those are the highlights. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to experience Nashville as the itinerary was top notch as was the hotel and the meals delicious. Well worth the money.

This show was fantastic. All of the music was great and it brought us back to the time music was fabulous. The performers had great voices and they kept the audience singing along for the entire show. Hope to see them again.
