Start with a tour of Harpers Ferry National Park where a visit is like stepping into the past. Then enjoy a narrated excursion on the Potomac Eagle and view historic farms and lush mountain greenery. Then it’s on to Winchester, VA for a Patsy Cline tour. Learn of Patsy’s music career, her childhood home and dreams of becoming a Country Music Star. This package also includes a tribute singer who will sing some of Patsy’s favorite songs. End your trip with a scenic ride on the Western Maryland Railroad through the spectacular scenery of the Allegheny Mountains.
It’s a walk down cobblestone streets, admiring colonial homes with garlands of fresh apples, magnolia and pine. It’s the sound of a fife-and-drum concert, traditional carolers, the ringing of jingle bells on a horse-drawn carriage.
Smiles along Virginia’s Blue Ridge combine with historic harmonies of America’s Original Music. To see the Carter Family Fold is to listen to history – it was the beginning of Commercialized Country Music. To experience the Floyd Country Store’s Friday Night Jamboree is to share the joy of old-time music in both dance and melody. This tour requires a little walking and a lot of toe-tappin.
