Our NEWEST DAY TOUR takes us to 5th AVE .NYC and a stretch of former millionaire mansions that have become the famous “Museum Mile.” We drive past the opulent former millionaires home for a Bus eye view with our NYC tour guide’s narration of past and present. Then we pause. We make a very brief stop for a glimpse inside Central Park. Stretch your legs briefly and enjoy the view. Then we move on to “Yonkers, the Gateway to the Lower Hudson Valley”. We stop for lunch, on our own, at one of the new retro fitted centers developed from an old laboratory. This evolving lunch stop offers a bit of variety of prices and choices for you. See how new ideas evolve from old ones!
After lunch we discover the highlight of the day. First, we tour The Historic Museum, which houses a permanent collection, presented on several floors. Take time to stroll the outdoors and see the beautiful awakening of spring on the Hudson River. As an added feature, we have included a special program at the planetarium. This live and interactive astronomy/science program has been created just for you on this amazing Adventure Tour. You will return, knowing you will never be Lost in Yonkers!

Leaving: 8:30 a.m. - Estimated Return: 6:15 p.m.
This is a LI day of discovery. Our first stop takes us to view with great pride historic LI aviation planes that helped America win WW2. Guided tours, personal stories and hands on experience at the museum. Walk Indoor and outdoor with former pilots and aviation buffs, take a seat and a picture in original cockpit. You will want more but we move on to our next step.
Some have called the hamlet of Bay Shore “the heart of the South Shore... It is a hamlet rich in history, but history leaving mini traces. An opera house becomes a park; an oyster house becomes a catering house, once a resort town, with a film studio making silent movies. Today, however we stop on Main Street. Shops and dining spots along the Main are for shopping or sipping or enjoying a lunch on you own. Free time here to learn and explore before going on to another site on land but filled with sights meant for the air.
We head east to discover one of LI's best kept secrets. This is vintage aviation, Antique planes, grass landing strips and a museum listed on the National Register of Historic places. So many antique planes to view, have your camera ready .We are led by the folks who volunteer to preserve the past. 1930s rare air bi planes and so much more. Yes, LI truly is a birthplace of aviation and adventure and new discoveries uncovered.
