Day 3. Thursday, July 13 - This morning we will begin with a session at the Palmyra Temple.
Please bring your own clothing, as rentals will not be available. We will visit the other fascinating
Palmyra sites including: Alvin’s Grave, Martin Harris Farm, Four Corners, and the Hill Cumorah
Visitors Center. In the afternoon, enjoy a picturesque drive to the Finger Lakes region and a visit to
the Peter Whitmer Farm and Visitors Center. The coach will return to Palmyra in the early evening
for the Hill Cumorah Pageant. This annual production began in 1937 and features over 700 cast
members, 1,300 costumes, and a 10-level stage. It attracts over 35,000 viewers annually. You’ll have

Day 4. Friday, July 14 – We will say goodbye to Fairport and begin a full day of sightseeing with
another drive through the Finger Lakes region. As we pass Cayuga Lake, we’ll make a short stop in
the charming town of Ithaca, known for the world-renowned Cornell University. In 1865, Senator
Ezra Cornell offered his farm as a site and $500,000 of his personal fortune as an initial endowment.
The university was inaugurated in 1868 and 412 men were enrolled that day. After leaving Ithaca, we
will drive to northern Pennsylvania and visit the newly developed Priesthood Restoration Sites
along the Susquehanna River. These sites have recently been enhanced with new buildings and a
Visitors Center. After our visit to Susquehanna, we take a short drive to our home for the next two

often called the Valley of Opportunity. The remainder of the evening is yours to enjoy at your leisure.

Day 5. Saturday, July 15 - Today, we will explore the village of Cooperstown. This small village is
part of the town of Otsego, best known for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum which
opened in 1939. The village hosts a farmers market, many museums and a historic district with quaint
shops and restaurants. After the museum visit, enjoy free time to shop and explore the village on your
