Day 1: Depart for the Iron Horse Hotel and Restaurant in Blackwater, MO. Arrive for a group luncheon, on-your-own, in an elegant boutique hotel (with lunch prices in the $16 range for entrée, dessert, and beverage). Living in New Orleans and being trained in Italy, Chef Tracy’s menu had reflections of both those flavors, as well as, great Southern and other American classics. The hotel is decorated with ornate wood and iron craftsmanship, plus has lovely courtyard gardens. After shopping in Blackwater, travel to the River, Rails, and Trail Museum in Booneville to learn about the area’s history and view a large keel boat like one used by Lewis and Clark in 1804. Also, meet your step-on-guide for a tour of the community. Afterwards, enjoy shopping time on-your-own. In the early evening, arrive at your hotel in Columbia, MO where you will have dinner and be given the opportunity to socialize with your group at the hotel’s Happy Hour event. Later, attend a special evening performance before returning to your hotel.

Day 2: After breakfast at your hotel, travel to the beautiful Shelter Garden in Columbia before taking a journey to Warm Springs Ranch, near Booneville. The site honors the culture, tradition, and heritage of the Budweiser Clydesdales of North American! Receive a guided walking tour of the breeding farm. The 300-plus acres of lush, rolling hills with a 25,000 square foot facility provides a mare/stallion and foaling barn and ten pastures. This will be an excellent photo opportunity for capturing the lovely landscape. Later, tour the Mitchell Car Museum after having a lunch on-your-own. Then, Les Bourgeois Vineyards in Rocheport, MO will be one of the highlights of the trip. Experience stunning views of the Missouri River at this well-known winery. The tour includes wine sampling in a tasting room with gift shop. The vineyard produces Vignoles, Tramenette, Cabernet Franc, Moscato, plus many other varieties of wines. A fast-food dinner stop is planned in Kansas City before returning to campus.
