Tuesday, August 10: Visit the frontier town of Roaring Camp and the Big Trees Narrow Gauge Railroad. Travel 45 minutes by excursion bus to a location deep in the heart of the magnificent redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Arrive in time to catch the 11:00 AM departure of the 1880’s steam train and enjoy an hour-long tour through the mountains. Passengers may detrain to picnic, returning to Roaring Camp on a later train. Or upon arrival, you can grab your deluxe box lunch and go for a stroll through the redwood loop trail. This trail is just a short distance from the depot and there are plenty of picnic sites along the way. Have lunch in the shade of a 2,000 year-old redwood. Return from your picnic in time to catch the 12:15 train. Enjoy a rare opportunity to ride back in the pages of history through some beautiful scenery in the American West. For more information see: www.roaringcamprr.com.

Thursday, August 12: A chaperoned trip designed for children 10 years and older to the Great America theme park. Your children will experience heart-pounding thrill rides, dazzling stage shows, and cuddle up to some of their favorite cartoon characters. Great America is only a half-hour away by minivan. It’s 100 acres of magic, laughter, music, screams, and dreams come true. See: www.pgathrills.com.

While the older children and teenagers are at the theme park, we have scheduled a bus trip to some special local museums suitable for adults and children of all ages. An excursion bus will travel 30 miles south to stop at the San Jose Art Museum. See: www.sjmusart.org. Or stay on the bus and get off at the Children’s Discovery Museum. For children to age 13, the museum offers interactive exhibits and programs that span the arts, science, technology, and the humanities. See: www.cdm.org. The last stop will be at the Tech Museum of Innovation; a new hands-on technology museum devoted to inspiring innovation in everyone. See: www.thetech.org. The bus will circle around to pick you up at the end of your visit, but there will probably be only enough time to visit one of the museums. Each museum has a café with reasonably priced food and beverages.

Friday, August 13: Your daylong tour begins as your bus drives south through the Salinas Valley, the "artichoke capital of the world," and through Monterey to Steinbeck's Cannery Row. Visit the world-acclaimed Monterey Bay Aquarium (admission included). (See: www.mbayaq.org.) You will view exhibits like nothing you have ever experienced: a million-gallon indoor ocean, viewed through the largest window on earth, and see eye-to-eye with more than 300,000 strange and colorful marine creatures. Enjoy time on your own for lunch and shopping in the Cannery Row area. Rejoin the bus and follow the coast through Pacific Grove to 17-Mile Drive where you will visit Pebble Beach, and the legendary 200 to 300 year old Lone Cypress. As the road approaches the coast, turbulent surf, twisted cypress trees and herds of sunbathing sea lions swing into view. Fanshell Beach is a popular place to stop, and you will have a chance to stroll along the Pacific Ocean. As you continue, you’ll see families of deer mingling with golfers on the famous fairways. On your way back, you will pass by one of the oldest Spanish Missions in the country, the Carmel Mission. Return to Stanford via route 101 through San Jose and the Silicon Valley - the Computer Capital of the World.

Saturday, August 14: Visit and shop in San Francisco. Your bus will take you to all the sightseeing stops in the morning and to Fisherman’s Wharf for lunch (not included). In the afternoon the bus will take you downtown where you can board a cable car or do some shopping at nearby department stores (Nordstrom’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus are nearby).
