Traveling the New, Historic Route 66 - RP20307

Tens of thousands of people travel from around the world to experience the nostalgia of Route 66; however, very few have the opportunity to enjoy the mystique of the road with our guide, John Weiss. Weiss is the award winning author of the only Illinois Route 66 guide and is a recipient of the prestigious John Steinbeck Award for ongoing efforts of supporting and preserving the Mother Road. He was also inducted into the exclusive Route 66 Hall of Fame and has received the Route 66 Ambassador's Award. Our day will begin by traveling to Joliet where we'll meet our guide. Throughout our journey on Route 66 (to Pontiac) we'll be entertained by John's narrative. Stops include the Route 66 Visitors Center, Milltown Market, an original 1906 two cell jail, a historic streetcar diner, scenic downtown Dwight, a restored 1932 filling station, Route 66 Hall of Fame & Museum, and Polk-A-Dot-Drive In, to name a few. There will be many more stops so you'll want to make sure you bring your camera with to capture these memories. Fee includes transportation, guide, all stops and a delicious lunch served at the wonderful Route 66 themed Family Restaurant. Registration deadline is May 3.

Once - RP20402

He was a singer about to give up his dream. She was a patron entranced by his music. It was a fateful meeting spurred by their shared love for music. Guy and Girl, as they’re known throughout the show, begin their relationship when he tells her of his day job as a vacuum cleaner repairman at his father’s shop. When she asks him to fix her vacuum, she says she can only pay for the repair with a song. That song is all it takes for Guy and Girl to fall in love, but with that love also comes some baggage. Guy has an ex he can’t get out of his head, and Girl has an estranged husband and a daughter. What’s holding them back couldn’t be heavier, but when it comes to love, the only thing that can stop them is life. Once is based on the Oscar-winning movie and is an eight-time Tony Award-winning musical, including Best Musical, Best Actor and Best Book. Fee includes transportation and ticket to the show at Paramount Theatre. Registration deadline is April 10.
