Autumn in Vermont and the Big Apple, too!
Friday, October 19, 2018 to Friday, October 26, 2018

OLLI’s New York City tours have been among the most popular of the many travel opportunities offered, always filling up early. This year we decided to expand our view. There will still be plenty to do and see in the “Big Apple,” but we are expanding our trip to enjoy the autumn colors of southern Vermont.

 Then we will head south and follow the Hudson River as it winds its way from Albany to NYC. Along the way we will visit Hyde Park and the home and Presidential Library of FDR, along with the Vanderbilt Mansion. We will tour the West Point Military Academy, then motor on to New York City for a driving tour of Manhattan and a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

 We will explore the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side, the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, along with the Financial District, Chinatown and Little Italy. Combine all of this with dinners in great restaurants, two Broadway musicals and the Metropolitan Opera production of "Tosca" and you have a great tour.
