Message from Travel:  In the months ahead, we could have changes and you need to be prepared to be surprised.  Travel groups know because of COVID, lack of workers, state and local guidelines, etc., situations change.  Traveling, at least for now comes with plenty of unknowns.  By the time we visit a planned destination it could be closed.  Venues we thought would be closed could be now be open.

In both advertisements and general communications transparency is the key.  Diane, our vendors and I want travelers to know the trip may not always go exactly as planned.  But what is always a definite is we will work to make sure even with unknowns, we are doing everything to make sure you all have the best trip possible regardless.  If substitutions ever have to be made--we thank you for your patience and understanding.

The tour will include a stroll through the production facility, make-your-own-station and the opportunity to purchase additional buckeye candies to take home.

2nd Stop - Eat at Poco Piatti.  We will have the Mediterranean Buffet, Beef or Chicken Kabobs, Hummus, fresh Pitas (made on site), salad and rice and more.
3rd Stop is Fort Meigs - the largest reconstructed wooden fort on the continent, and a pivotal battlefield in the US Victory in the War of 1812.  We will have a docent telling us our history, the history of Northwest Ohio.  This first hour walking tour will not be exhausting, very slow paced.  The second hour of the visit will be "free time" for those wishing to walk further into the Fort or you can go back to the Welcome Center for those who want to explore the Museum and Gift Shop.

1 1/4 Hour: Salt Cave of Perrysburg-experience a salt detox by relaxing your bare tootsies on a salt filled floor that resembles a high-grain beach (beach chairs included).  The salt cave is a quiet space  (no cell phones, hushed tones) intended to allow the visitor to peaceful, reflective time.  (A medical form will be given at registration day for you to complete.)

1 1/4 Hour:  Swig Restaurant-charcuterie & suds for the curious.  Home made from scratch specialty franks and sausages, chicken wings & chunks, burgers, Rueben's, and panino's.  I love this restaurant, perfect part of our day.  


  1 1/4 Hour:  Wellaroma - explore naturally-made products and teas to help live a better, healthier life - Angela makes all products in-house fresh daily.  Create your own flavor of tea, or raft your own salt scrub with essential oils and education on what's good and why-half hour, with a half hour of retail therapy throughout the store.

Come join us-pamper yourself, eat a tasty lunch and have a tea or salt scrub (purchased by AEC for your enjoyment) to bring home.  On this visit to Perrysburg, our friends Christine an Allison will also be on hand with other surprises.
