Event Type: Adult Program
Date: 6/14/2012
Start Time: 7:45 AM
End Time: 5:15 PM
Description:
 We're going to take a fascinating journey back in time as we travel to southeast Wisconsin and take a two-mile ride in a beautifully restored streetcar. As we ride past the Lake Michigan shoreline, Harbor Park, two historic districts, and downtown Kenosha, we'll learn how these streetcars were so important through the mid 1900's. We'll also tour the brand new Civil War Museum on the streetcar route which shows how the upper Midwest helped shape American history during the Civil War. After lunch at the Boat House Pub & Eatery, we will go to the East Troy Electric Railroad to visit the museum and take a ten-mile round trip journey on one of its inter-urban trains. During our ride we'll make a stop at the Elegant Farmer where we have time to shop at the Farm Kitchen Bakery and Market featured on TV's Food Network which is known for its one-of-a-kind apple pie baked in a paper bag!

$78 tickets available at the Registration/Information Desk.
