Traveling eastward, the Vermont landscape will surround us. Once in the Green Mountain area of Vermont, we will be immersed in the history of these rural but artistic communities. Grandma Moses, a tiny, lively woman with mischievous gray eyes, was known for her quick wit. Her paintings reflect the America of the ‘50s. We will see the Bennington Museum, which has the largest collection of her works in the world. She and Norman Rockwell were friends (she appeared in his painting “Christmas Homecoming”), and we will see locations featuring both of these famed artists. We will learn such skills as butter churning (try your hand), jam-making (make some to take home!), see craft beer being brewed and lots of other old-fashioned goodness while we are staying in the Vermont Country Lodge of the Green Mountains. No one will want to miss a chance to shop at the Vermont Country Store! Perhaps you receive their catalog and have been tempted to get some of their oldfashioned candy, clothing or kitchen gadgets. Sample cheeses, dips and sweets while hearing about the history of the store and catalog from the family who founded the store. An exciting inclusion is the Quechee Gorge, Vermont’s 165-foot-deep “Little Grand Canyon.” We will visit Billings Farm and enjoy a picnic lunch, plus explore Hildene, the Lincoln Family Home (Robert Todd) and the beautiful formal gardens. Then on the way back to Ohio, we will again stop in Erie, dining at Demetri’s on the Lake and stopping at the historic Dunkirk Lighthouse (1826).

Creativity and inventiveness at its American best! Be inspired by American ingenuity as it’s off to Michigan we go! Visit the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House—a 60-room mansion! Admire the breathtaking grounds, elegance and history as we see the home of Henry Ford’s only son, Edsel. The Ford Rouge Factory tour shows us innovation in manufacturing that could have come only from America: the world’s largest living roof, the F-150 pickup truck (the best-selling truck in America since 1977)—and see it all in a 90-minute tour. The Henry Ford Museum offers a 12-acre site of transportation, power and ship machinery. Spend an afternoon at Greenfield Village, an outdoor living museum with 80 historic homes, workplaces and community buildings; Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park laboratory; the bicycle shop of the Wright brothers, where they designed and built their first airplane; the house where Noah Webster wrote the first dictionary; and the boyhood home of pioneer Harvey Firestone. For many, Detroit means music. We will visit Hitsville U.S.A., where Motown was founded in 1959. Studio A produced such hits as “Please Mr. Postman,” “My Guy,” “Baby Love” and “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.” So much history just north of Ohio! You probably haven’t been here since your children were young — think how much more you will enjoy it now as an adult!
