One Bus- Two Separate Tours! Choose this trip if you want to go to either location. With displays ranging from the elegant aeronautic designs of two unknown bike mechanics – Orville and Wilbur Wright – to an actual Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird that can fly at speeds of over 2,000 miles per hour – the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum located in McMinnville, Oregon, has a little something for everyone. The centerpiece of these aeronautical breakthroughs is the original Spruce Goose.

General Tour

How about a picnic dinner and symphony at a park? Each year, the concert draws thousands of people to the grassy bowl next to the Hawthorne Bridge to hear the orchestra preview works from its upcoming season. Closing festivities include the traditional grand finale - Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture with an elaborate fireworks show, complete with military cannons from the Oregon Army National Guard 218th Field Artillery. This event begins earlier in the day but if you would like to join us for a box dinner, transportation to the park, and ADA seating, this is the event for you.
