Lake Memphremagog Brunch Cruise | Thursday, August 19 | 8:45am – 3:30pm | $72 FLYER (we apologize for the $5 increase over our originally advertised trip cost)
The first trip in over a year and a half is now being offered. Join us for an idyllic brunch cruise and enjoy the historical tales of Lake Memphremagog while gazing at the mountains surrounding these pristine waters. Our two-hour scenic cruise on the Northern Star will begin in Newport, Vt and take you north along the eastern edge of this magnificent lake right up to the border of Quebec. During your trip, areas of interest will be pointed out as the boat travels along the lake. Using locally sourced ingredients, chefs will delight you with a brunch (and Mimosas available at a cash bar) as you take in panoramic views of Newport City, the islands of the lake and Owl’s Head in Canada. The boat, built in 2002, is 65 feet long and handicapped accessible. We will travel from Montpelier on a large coach bus with air conditioning and restrooms and have 38 spots.
Cascades Walk by the River | Monday, August 23 | 1:00-4:00pm | $7 FLYER
The Cascades is a remarkable 1 mile stretch along the North Branch of the Winooski River beside Route 12. It is characterized by stunning cascading waterfalls, boasting an unprecedented wheelchair accessible trail. There are also six stone stairways to provide easy access to the river. We will travel in the MSAC 12-passenger van.
