The Geneva Historical Society and First Choice Travel are organizing a three-day trip to Philadelphia, April 21-23, coinciding with the 300th anniversary of the birth of the city's best-known citizen, Ben Franklin.
The itinerary includes a visit to the National Constitution Center and the special exhibit, “Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World,” which immerses visitors in Franklin’s world.
Also included are stops at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, featuring “Andrew Wyeth: Memory and Magic;” a dinner theater show, “Bullets For Broadway;” a guided walking tour of America’s most historic square mile; and a visit to the world’s premier horticultural display, Longwood Gardens. Lodging will be at the Hampton Inn in Center City, next to the Convention Center.
The price of the trip is $409 per person double occupancy, based on a minimum of 40 participants; or $439 per person with 30 participants, with discounts available to historical society members. The price includes transportation, lodging, all admissions, two breakfasts, one lunch, one dinner theatre, and a $20 tax-deductible donation to the Geneva Historical Society.
