Start the “Holiday Season” off right by enjoying a two-day getaway to Chicago this winter. The two day excursion includes time for holiday shopping, a theater show and a spectacular display of Christmas lights in downtown Chicago.
We have an early departure to arrive in Chicago suburbs by noon for an afternoon of shopping. We continue to the hotel to freshen up for a night of fine dining and delightful entertainment at The Drury Lane Dinner Theatre Oakbrook. The theater can accommodate about 1,000 guests in its plush seating and spacious environment. All of the glamour and opulence of a first-rate theater has been preserved at the Drury. Sumptuous dining and dazzling chandeliers are only a small part of the ambiance here. Patrons say the luxury feel of the Drury is what sets it apart from the pack. Tonight we see Hello, Dolly!, the story of Dolly Levi, a brassy widow with a knack for matchmaking. Dolly takes a trip to New York to meet a millionaire, Mr. Vandergelder, who has been courting another woman – but Dolly is soon to change that! Hello, Dolly! is the story of turn-of-the-century widowed matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi, who, after cunningly negotiating marriages for others through a series of comic romantic entanglements, ultimately finds her own match. Before we return to the hotel we will drive to downtown Chicago to see the Christmas lights.
Included Meal: Day 1 – Dinner
After breakfast we board our motor coach and drive a short distance to downtown Chicago. Today is yours to enjoy at the Navy Pier or exploring the Magnificent Mile. The Navy Pier, located on Lake Michigan in Chicago, is one of the finest and most entertaining leisure destinations in the area. So much so, that more than 8 million visitors flock to this lakefront playground to enjoy all the area has to offer. The pier is a booming location with many restaurants, shops, attractions and entertainment centers. At the pinnacle of Chicago’s famed Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place is Chicago’s premier shopping destination. Its stunning eight-level atrium features Macy’s, American Girl Place and the new Broadway in Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse. In addition, unique dining experiences include Mity Nice Grill, Freshii, Wow Bao and Foodlife. If you have time, venture further into the Magnificent Mile for more exciting shopping. We depart the Windy City with lots of Christmas packages and exciting stories to tell others about our Getaway!
