February update – limited seating trips

Hello:

Hope you are all surviving the winter so far. Except for the extreme COLD we have had on and off since Christmas, the winter hasn’t been too bad.  Fingers crossed.

Below are the trips we have limited seating on – 25 seats or less. The sold-out trips are listed on the main web page. If you see something you like and it’s FULL, I encourage you to please contact me to get on the wait list. We have cancellations all the time. Also the more people that show interest in a trip, it allows me to decide whether to add a second bus or date to the trip.

​Saturday May 19   Something Rotten at  Providence Performing Arts Center – 5 seats left 

We are returning here for the first time in three years. As always, we purchase orchestra seats, and this show ​is hilarious!

Prior to the show, we will have lunch at Spirito’s on Federal Hill. We are returning here as well.

Saturday July 14   NEW TRIP!  Mama Mia at the Mac Haydn Theater in Chatham, NY.  – 23 seats left 

andThis theater is located just over the state line and is a first time visit for us. We start off with a wine tasting at a winery and buffet lunch at a country club, and then it’s show time.

Donna, an independent hotelier in the Greek islands, is preparing for her daughter’s wedding with the help of two old friends. Meanwhile Sophie, the spirited bride, has a plan. She secretly invites three men from her mother’s past in hopes of meeting her real father and having him escort her down the aisle on her big day. The music from the pop group ABBA will leave you dancing in the aisles.

Sunday October 7  NEW TRIP!   Apple Pie Festival & Hildene (home of Robert Todd Lincoln) – 11 seats left

The Congregational church ladies bake 1500 pies to serve and sell.  We stopped here three years ago on the recommendation of the people at the Vermont visitors’ center where we make a rest stop just over the Massachusetts border. Everyone loved the pie stop. They also have a craft fair.

Next stop is Hildene where we will have lunch as well as a self-guided tour of the home.

Sunday November 11  OLD FAVORITE!   Griswold Inn & Ivoryton Theater – 24 seats left

This is a great combination! Excellent Sunday brunch at the Griswold and time to browse the shops in the town of Essex.  Then it’s off to the Ivoryton for the premier of “The Queens of the Golden Mask.”  This theater is a favorite of the And Away We Go and Happy Traveler guests.

It may be hard for some to plan in advance, but you certainly don’t want to miss out. Sign up for a day trip, and you can always cancel if necessary before the final payment date. Any questions, please ask. Thanks for joining us on our travels.

New Summer Day Trips

Join us on two new day trips this summer.

In July we visit a winery for a tasting, a country club for a buffet lunch and the Mac Hayden Theatre for Mama Mia.

In August we will have a two hour private cruise of  the calm waters of Salem Harbor  including a visit to Misery Island, a stunning natural park owned by the Trustees of Reservations. We will have a 30-minute stop here, and on the island you can walk the wide, well-maintained trails or comb the beach for sea glass. Beer, wine or soft drinks are available on the boat for purchase.  Prior to the cruise, we have included lunch at the Historic Hawthorne Hotel.

Hamilton update

Hello Everyone

We have finally heard about our ticket request.

I am sorry to say, I have been informed that even though we are on the top of the list, we have little chance of getting tickets as there will not be any discounts and group sales are not being offered to the theaters.

If you really want to see Hamilton, you should plan to try and purchase tickets and attend on your own.  As you may or may not know, subscribers have the first chance of getting tickets which makes it even more difficult.   I have seen tickets online going for hundreds of dollars in Boston.

I will keep you informed if the folks from Hamilton change their minds and decide to work with the theaters and offer group/reduced pricing.

Any questions, please feel free to call me at the office at  508-421-6882 or email –  fredandawaywegotravel@gmail.com.

Happy New Year Everyone!
We here at And Away We Go Travel Inc. hope all of our travelers enjoyed their holiday. Please note that some of our 2018 tours are posted here on the website and have limited seats or are already full.

We are still working on trips for July, August and September.
These are the new day trips for October(Hildene) and November(Ivoryton).  We know it’s a long way off but they fill quickly.
Don’t forget as a full service travel agency, we can send you away from this bitter COLD to a warm Caribbean island or on a Caribbean cruise
Any questions, please call me at the office (508) 421-6882 or send an email(fredandawaywegotravel@gmail.com)
Thank You for all of the wonderful support in 2017, we couldn’t have done it without you.
