Enjoy scenic Vermont by touring King Arthur Flour, shopping Simon Pearce & VT Country Store, and more on this Day Tour.
Day 1 - Norwich, VT
This morning, we head north into the green mountains of Vermont. Our first stop of the day is at King Arthur Flour Company. King Arthur Flour was founded in 1790 in Boston, MA, and is America’s oldest flour company. In 1984 (after 194 years in Boston), the company moved to Norwich, VT, where it is headquartered today and has become 100% employee-owned. Upon arrival, we will be greeted and taken on a tour.
Make a stop at the Simon Pearce Company, located in Windsor, VT. From the catwalk, you will be able to watch master glassblowers and potters at work before you head to the store to purchase finished pieces.
Our coach will wind us through the roads of Vermont to Ludlow, where we will have lunch at the beautiful Castle Hill Resort & Spa. Our pre-select entrée choices are: Chicken Marsala with Linguini or Pan Seared Atlantic Salmon encrusted with Tomato and Fresh Herbs with a Cucumber and Caper Salad. Both entrees are served with a Caesar Salad, Dinner Rolls, Dessert , Coffee, Tea, or Decaf.
The final stop this afternoon will lead us to the VT Country Store which opened in 1946. A couple generations later, the store still holds its charm. Items for sale at the VT Country Store include those that often cannot be purchased elsewhere.
