Timeless Galena Spend the day in one of the most historic cities in the Midwest. Established in 1826, and named after the natural mineral form of lead sulfide, Galena was part of a lead mining district established by the government. By the mid-19th century, Galena was the busiest port on the Mississippi River between St. Paul and St. Louis with a population of over 14,000. After some economic ups and downs, Galena is now a well-known tourist destination. Upon our arrival in Galena, we’ll hop on the trolley, pick up our guide, and see the sights. The tour will end at the U.S. Grant Home which was built in 1860 and gifted to Ulysses S. Grant in 1865 upon his return to Galena after the Civil War. The home has been carefully restored to its original state with many of the actual furnishings used by the Grant family. From Grant’s Home, we’ll travel to the Desoto House Hotel located on Main Street to enjoy lunch in the historic splendor of the hotel. After lunch, there will be time on your own to browse the shops or visit other sites in Galena before we board the bus back to Wisconsin.

Sew, Let's Shop! This trip is for the sewing and quilting enthusiasts among us! We’ll travel to Nancy’s Notions in Beaver Dam to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility, and still have plenty of time to shop for ‘must have’ items for our projects. After a buffet lunch, we’ll make a brief stop at the EarthShine Candle Outlet, also located in Beaver Dam. Nancy’s Notions was established in 1979 by Public Television sewing icon Nancy Zieman in rural Beaver Dam. What started out as a mail-order operation at Nancy’s kitchen table - with a renovated chicken coop for a fulfillment center - has become a multi-channel organization that carries the best in sewing, quilting and embroidery supplies, as well as patterns, fabric, and other notions. While touring the warehouse, we’ll be able to view the receiving, packing, and picking areas as well as the photo studio where items for the Nancy’s Notions catalog are staged, and the production department. And, of course, there will be ample opportunity to browse the store’s many offerings! Our last stop in Beaver Dam will be the EarthShine Candle Outlet. The store offers over 50 phenomenal fragrances of hand-poured candles in multiple sizes of glass jars, votives, tealights, scent drops, and wax chips for candle warmers. In addition to a huge selection of candles, the store offers a great selection of home decor items, garden accents, and gifts all year round in their store and warehouse.

Amish Adventure The Amish live according to beliefs that go back to a sixteenth-century Protestant movement in Europe. While different communities have different rules, they all value humility, family, discipline, and hard work. Our Amish Adventure will take us to Green Lake County where a large community of Amish reside.
Once we arrive at our first stop, we’ll pick up a step-on guide who will take us on a journey through the beautiful Wisconsin countryside around Kingston and Markesan’s Amish communities. Our tour will allow us to experience the Amish way, and we’ll make various stops along the way: including an Amish bakery, school, produce stands, and a bulk foods store. There is always plenty of room to stow any purchases made either under the bus or in the overhead compartments on the bus, so plan to buy some Amish-made goodies! (Please note that all activities are subject to change and may be substituted with other stops out of respect for the culture and needs of our Amish hosts.)
At mid-day, we’ll make a stop for a full Amish meal prepared and served at the Amish Community Center.
