Marvel at the acres and acres of colorful tulips in Holland, Michigan and breathe in the clear air during your two-night stay at the luxurious Grand Hotel on remote Mackinac Island.

Time to unwind from our busy schedules and get acquainted with fellow passengers in anticipation of making memories on this incredible 11-day journey. Great monuments inspire you to explore new heights, but very few take you there! The tram at the Gateway Arch will lift you 630 feet up to the top of the tallest man-made monument in the United States. Then travel back in time on a replica 19th-century Paddle-Wheel Riverboat down the Mississippi River during our stopover in St. Louis.
