Tour Details

14 Days: Friday February 27, 2015 - Thursday March 12, 2015    http://www.visitclearwaterflorida.com/
Featuring a relaxing seven night stay on the white sandy beaches of Clearwater Beach, this tour is a delightful escape from our cold Canadian winter. An interesting circle route keeps the scenery fresh and unique, and outstanding Florida attractions and sightseeing combine to make this tour memorable. Join us for some fun in the sun!
Day One – To Cincinnati: The fun begins as we meet our travelling companions and cross the border into Michigan. We arrive at our hotel in Cincinnati by early evening. 

Day Two – To Atlanta: The Blue Grass of Kentucky soon gives way to the rolling hills of Tennessee as we leave the snow and cold behind. We spend the night at a lovely hotel just outside Atlanta. 

Day Three – To Macon and Gainesville: The weather warms up as we begin to see cotton fields on the landscapes, and our arrival into Macon, Georgia takes us back to antebellum times. A local guide joins us for a guided tour of the immaculate antebellum homes and mansions in this city that was preserved during the Civil War. Many photographs later, we cross the Florida border and spend the night in Gainesville. 

Day Four – Clearwater Beach: Today we arrive in Clearwater Beach and our elegant hotel for a delightful 7 night stay. Stroll 10 acres of white sand beaches overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, marvel at the sunsets, take a dip in one of their two pools, and enjoy the variety of restaurants and bars both in the hotel itself and in the immediate area. 

Days Five - Ten – Clearwater Beach: Unpack, relax, and soak up the sun as we spend six full days in this beautiful area. Be as busy or relaxed as you like, since we will offer a multitude of sightseeing, dining and shopping options that you can choose to enjoy, or relax on your own. The choice is yours. Just some of the options offered include Tarpon Springs, a casino or luncheon cruise, shopping at a mall or outlets, Busch Gardens, Derby Lane Dog track and more. We’ll get you there in comfort and you pay admission (if applicable) only. If you like, you can hop aboard the Suncoast Beach Trolley and for a nominal fee, you can ride all day between Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach. It’s a fun way to see the area on your own. If you love to golf, bring your clubs and we’ll arrange tee times for you at one of the area courses. 

Day Eleven – To Savannah, GA: A relaxing drive takes us to the gracious and charming city of Savannah. Rich and prosperous, pre-Civil War Savannah was praised by many as the most picturesque and serene city in America, with grand oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. During the Civil War, General Sherman began his march to the sea, burning the city of Atlanta and everything else in his path on the way to the coast. Savannah avoided destruction because Sherman was so impressed by its beauty. A narrated tour of the city on our arrival will show us the beautiful homes, squares, parks and riverfront of this unique city. 

Day Twelve – To Jonesville, NC: An interesting inland route takes us through South Carolina and into the city of Jonesville, where we spend the night. 

Day Thirteen – To Washington, PA: Today we enjoy outstanding mountainous scenery as we take a routing through the heart of North Carolina and Virginia, across the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains. We spend our last night together just southwest of Pittsburgh, where we will enjoy a lovely farewell dinner. 

Day Fourteen – Home: Before we know it we’ll be crossing the border into Ontario, with wonderful memories and new friends.
