This morning we cruise out of our hometowns and make our way into the state of Indiana. By mid-afternoon we arrive at the Hillforest Mansion for a guided tour of this famous landmark. Overlooking the Ohio River, this former Riverboat Captain home was built in 1855 and reflects the opulence of that era. Guests will tour the entire mansion that has been carefully restored. The suspended staircase was patterned after the grand salon on the more elaborate riverboats of the time, and belvedere overlooking the river was designed after a pilot house. By mid-afternoon we arrive at our hotel for the night with a taste of Vegas at the Rising Star Casino Hotel and Lodge. Our unique resort is nestled along the banks of the Ohio River with an easy walk to the casino and dining. Dinner is included for our passengers at the River View Buffet where you will dine on delicious all-you-care-to-eat bounty of food with a most beautiful setting to match. Their extensive buffet normally includes a very wide variety of delicious carved meats, country barbecue, delectable Italian fair and an array of fresh salads and desserts. Your time will be yours to play in the exciting casino as you wish - try your luck at the endless choices - you might just win an unexpected jackpot! (Casino bonus is offered by the casino and subject to change beyond our control, although we do not expect any changes.)

Breakfast included at the hotel as we will be up bright and early to start our day. Today we have a real treat with a 5-1/2 hour cruise aboard the historic "Belle of Louisville" as we sail from Madison, Indiana to Louisville, Kentucky with beautiful scenery around every bend. While onboard you may wish to participate in trivia games, bring a deck of cards for fun, visit the engine room, dance, or just sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous fall colors as you watch the world float by! Full buffet lunch is included onboard as you cruise down the river enjoying the shoreline sights and fall colors. This is just the perfect time of the year to see all the beauty offered. Our motorcoach will meet us in Louisville as we make a quick stop at our area hotel before our fun evening out. The next feature of this autumn tour is one of the country's best kept secrets! A very special dinner will be included...and then...originating in Oxford, Mass., Iroquois Park in Louisville now presents the "Jack 'O Lantern Spectacular", with over 5,000 carved pumpkins lining a walking trail illuminated at night, and featuring over 100 that are carved into amazing intricate works of art by both professional and local artists - it is jaw-dropping awesome!! Staged in themed scenes with music, walk the 1/4 mile "Pumpkin Trail" and feast your eyes on this magical display depicting people, places and scenes from popular culture to old-time favorites, and everything in between! Such a unique opportunity to be be missed! There's just nothing else like it and our past groups are still raving sbout it!
