We’ll visit with the dogs while Jim teaches us about sledding, the history of the Iditarod, and the training for winter’s most exciting sport. Following the interesting tour with Jim, we’ll make our way to the community of Plymouth for a visit to the Wreath Factory. Here we will find a collection of wreaths with their signature blend of pine, cedar, balsam, and other botanicals to capture a scent true to Christmas memories, both old and new! After lunch on our own near Plymouth, we’ll step back in time to the stagecoach era at the Wade House, where we’ll tour the carriage museum & blacksmith shop, take a wagon ride, and visit the 1850’s Stagecoach Inn. We’ll get a real taste of history here! And our day continues! We’ll head to the LaClare Family Creamery in the late afternoon. Taste something out of the ordinary.
