DAY 1 … This exciting train adventure begins as we Motorcoach across the Carolinas into the mountains of West Virginia. What a beautiful place to visit as we arrive in Bramwell. This Turn-of-the-century community became a very rich little town during the boom days of the Coal industry. Actually there were more millionaires here than any place of its size in America.  Our group enjoys a tour of the town with a visit to several homes, before continuing to Beckley for our first night.  Dinner  (D)

DAY 2 … West Virginia is known for its coal production as we visit the Exhibition Coal Mine.  We have the opportunity to tour the underground mine, visit the Coal Camp, the Museum, and the Gift Shop stocked with West Virginia items & freshly made fudge in a variety of flavors. The hands-on exhibitions and underground coal mining tour highlight this morning. Later we continue to Elkins, WV for a 2 night stay high up in the mountains.  Dinner  (B,D)

DAY 3 … This morning we board the NEW TIGER FLYER train for a beautiful 4 hour ride and experience in West Virginia wilderness, over mountain crests and high valleys, arriving at High Falls. Lunch is included on the train. Our group has time for shopping in Elkins before we enjoy dinner and take our seats at the American Mountain Theatre for a musical show. (B,L,D)

DAY 4 … We board our motorcoach for a beautiful mountain drive during the breath-taking foliage season, traveling to White Sulphur Springs, WV.  Our destination is the world class 5-Star resort located here… the amazing GREENBRIER.  Take afternoon tea, explore the beauty of this amazing place, and tonight sit 

down to a gourmet dinner and orchestra entertainment.  Be pampered and enjoy it!   The Greenbrier has also added their Casino Club.  Described as Monte Carlo meets Gone with the Wind, the premier West Virginia casino combines high-roller thrills and high-class style to create an unforgettable Greenbrier gaming experience.   (B,D)

DAY 5 … A fabulous breakfast and a Bunker Tour highlight the morning, as we are guided through the top secret Government Relocation Facility that was built under the Greenbrier Resort during the “Cold War” years. Leaving the mountains, everyone should be singing … “Country Roads, take me home, to the place I belong… West Virginia, Mountain Mama, take me home.” We travel to Abingdon, the first settlement in Virginia west of the mountains. Dinner and a show at the historic Barter Theatre.       (B,D)
