Reunion Itinerary

The bus will depart the hotel 9:15 AM sharp, arriving at the Naval Military Park around 10:00AM.  We will depart from the Park about 12:30 AM and head for the Made In America
Store. We will have a light lunch at the store. After some shopping at the store, we will depart for East Aurora, just a few minutes away.  We should be back at the hotel at 5 PM.
The Buffalo and Erie County Naval Military Park is a museum on the shore of Lake Erie in Buffalo, New York. It is home to several decommissioned US Naval vessels, including the
Cleveland-class cruiser USS Little Rock, the Fletcher-class destroyer USS The Sullivans, and the submarine USS Croaker.  Along with the ships, there are a variety of smaller
vehicles, vessels, and aircraft on display at the Park.  The Park includes an outside exhibit area, a museum building and a gift shop. Over many years, the Park has obtained
artifacts related to all branches of the Armed Forces. Mid day we will head for the Made In America Store. We will have lunch at the store, included in the tour price.  After visiting
the store, we will head a short distance down the street to the village where America’s Arts and Crafts movement began over a century ago and continues to embrace a creative
vibe today. Located 20 minutes from downtown Buffalo, East Aurora is full of distinctive attractions, from the only house built by a U.S. President with his own hands to a family
owned 5 & 10 store and a variety of cafés, boutiques and restaurants. It’s easy to see why so many visitors stay an entire day or a weekend in the village.  Tour price is $75.00 per
person and includes bus transportation, light lunch, admission fees and all gratuities.
