Christmas Splendor

December 13-14, 2018

Join Gannon Travel Associates & Heritage Bank for a magical Christmas tour that will be sure to get you in the holiday spirit!  This overnight tour will include four meals, two great shows and other fun holiday stops in the Omaha area.

Tour Itinerary:

  • Thursday, Dec. 13th:  Depart from Grand Island for supper tonight at Round The Bend Steakhouse in Ashland.  Following supper we will check into our hotel before heading to the Omaha Symphony Christmas Celebration.  This concert—which gets a little more flashy every year—is a hot ticket, not only with Omaha audiences, but with people all across the area.  Enjoy a fantastic show that will not disappoint!
  • Friday, Dec. 14th:  Following breakfast, we will experience 19th Century Victorian Holiday with a tour of General Crook’s House.  Next up today is the Hot Shops Art Center.  This former warehouse has been converted to over 80 artist studios.  We will visit the Crystal Forge for a glass blowing demonstration of beautiful ornaments and have time to spend in the gift shop.  Lunch included today at Uncle Bucks Restaurant at Bass Pro Shops with time to pick up any last minute gifts.  Following lunch we will make a stop at Lauritsen Gardens to observe hundreds of poinsettias on display, including a tree consisting of 700 poinsettias.  Miniature trains travel across the display which includes replicas of famous Omaha landmarks.  Enjoy the display and a little time to shop in the extensive gift shop.  Relax for a short motor coach ride to Mahoney State Park where we will dine buffet style for supper at Caddy’s Parkside Grill.  Our final stop to wrap up the Holiday Tour will be the Lofte Theatre in Manley.  Here you will experience a fantastic show in the renovated barn turned theatre.  The Nunsense Christmas Musical “Nuncrackers”, stars the Nuns you love, plus Father Virgil, and some of Mount Saint Helen’s most talented students.  This show is filled with typical NUNSENSE humor, some of your favorite carols, and a “Secret Santa” audience participation.  This show will make you laugh, and maybe tug at your heartstrings.  It’s the perfect way to insure that your Holiday Season is merry and bright.
