Big Cities Big Fun


DEPARTING!
April 1 - 6, 2011
November 3 - 8, 2011



At Uncommon Journeys, we have long been fond of Memphis and St. Louis, two great and historic Mississippi River towns. For years, we have offered Memphis better than anyone else by including the remarkable Memphis Jones, performer and entertainer extraordinaire who gives our guests a musical tour through the home of the Blues that everyone raves about. We also visit the famed Rendezvous Barbeque, voted year afer year one of the top ten barbeque places in America. And last but not least, Memphis is a repository of live music, spilling out of clubs on colorful Beale St. St. Louis too, is the classic American city with its great Arch and here we are fortunate to have the doyenne of St. Louis historians, Nini Harris, to show our guests the best of this great city on a tour most of our travelers rate as the highlight of their trip.

Of course, a great holiday requires great hotels and we have two of the best in the Midwest featured. In Memphis, the highest rated hotel in town, the elegant Westin Memphis Beale St. and in St. Louis, the Drury Plaza and, naturally, our guests enjoy two night stays in each since no one likes checking in and out of a hotel for just a one night stay. Nicer stll, we have included complete sightseeing in both cities with a visit to Graceland in Memphis and the Arch in St. Louis. As always, we have a nice balance of included amenities and free time, for you to explore and enjoy these two cities at your own pace.

This would not be a Train Holiday without a distinctive train ride and we have two, one at the beginning of our trip and one to conclude it. We travel from Chicago to Memphis aboard Amtrak’s City of New Orleans on a short overnight ride via the Illinois Central Railroad. On our final day of the holiday, we travel back to Chicago in great style aboard our own 1940’s era streamliner train, the ‘St Louis Special’ complete with round-end observation club car! With comfortable seating, fresh flowers, an attentive staff and all meals, wines & spirits, this is a nostalgic reminder of the golden age of train travel.

In short, this is the perfect, elegant relaxing mini vacation. There is only one flaw and that is the fact that this exclusive program will operate only twice in 2011 and prompt reservations are encouraged due to the limited number of departures. We look forward to welcoming you.

All Aboard!
