Itinerary

B=Breakfast, L=Lunch, D=Dinner, S=Show

Day 1: We're off! Fun, "open bar" cocktails, and entertainment— compliments of Seniortours. Late afternoon finds us arriving in the greater Albany, NY area and checking into our hotel. Afterward, we’ll enjoy a special plated dinner at Jax Steak & Oyster House, the country’s 2nd oldest family-run restaurant, and long a part of Albany’s social and political fabric. This evening, why not enjoy the hotel amenities. D

Day 2: After breakfast, we're off into the rolling countryside of Upstate NY and across the Massachusetts border into the Berkshire Mountains. We’re heading for picturesque Stockbridge, home of America’s favorite artist, Norman Rockwell. We’ll visit his museum and explore the village which was the setting of many of his works. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a dinner cruise on the Hudson River, one of our country’s most beautiful! B,D

Day 3: After breakfast, we're off to the picturesque and quaint village of Saratoga Springs, where thoroughbred racing debuted in 1863. And today, we'll experience the excitement and adventure of this lovely Victorian town and her history-laden race course, which over the years has grown to become the "Summer Place to Be" in horse racing. Our visit will include the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. Man o' War, Secretariat, Arcaro, and the Jones Boys are all heroes of the turf and names that evoke the clang of the starting gate and the thunder of pounding hooves, and our visit to the Museum will be filled with the sights and sounds of racing. We'll enjoy a gala VIP lunch (included) in the air-conditioned Clubhouse, with reserved seats at “America’s Most Beautiful Raceway”. Hope "lady luck" is good to you and your horse! After our day of racing excitement, we journey back to our hotel. B, L
