Join us this summer for our new Let’s Laugh Tour! Enjoy the hometown of Lucille Ball, the Lake Erie Wine Country and a beautiful resort home on the shores of Lake Chautauqua.
This morning we begin our travels to Jamestown, New York and our home for three nights, the luxurious Chautauqua Harbor Hotel. Located on the shores of Lake Chautauqua, you will enjoy a 9 acre oasis with spectacular lake frontage. Your resort home offers indoor/outdoor salt water based pools, state-of-the-art fitness center, 3 fire pits on the patio, complimentary Starbucks coffee in each guest lobby area on every floor, evening turn down services and more.
After breakfast at the hotel we are off to experience the legacy of Lucille Ball in her hometown of Jamestown, NY. On the Lucy Town Tour you will see the home she was born and grew up in, the cemetery where she and her family rests and more. We’ll visit the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and Desilu Studios where you get an inside look at the couple’s personal life and see the props, sets and costumes worn in the show. Here we will enjoy lunch in the Tropicana Room, a recreation of the nightclub that Ricky Ricardo owned on the I Love Lucy show.
This afternoon we visit the award-winning National Comedy Center, the first state-of-the art museum dedicated to telling the vital story of comedy in America. More than 50 immersive exhibits take you on an interactive journey through comedy history, from early vaudeville acts to the latest comedy. Returning to our hotel our evening is free to relax and enjoy dinner at our deluxe hotel. (Breakfast and lunch included)
After breakfast we set out to Lake Chautauqua and the Lake Erie Wine Country. We will step aboard the Chautauqua Belle for a 90 minute cruise. Learn how steamboats plied the waters of Chautauqua Lake and their importance in the development of the area on a real steamboat!
This afternoon we visit the Grape Discovery Center in the Lake Erie Concord Grape Belt, viewing exhibits that tell the story of over 150 years of grape growing. We will also enjoy wine tasting at a local winery in the popular Lake Erie Wine Country.
Later we return to our hotel to enjoy some relaxation followed by a full course dinner and our evening musical entertainment, “Serenade on Broadway”. (Breakfast, dinner and show performance included)
