Later this evening we arrive at our hotel for a two-night stay. Day 2 Nov. 29: Cambridge Dickens Victorian Village ~ Oglebay Park’s Winter Festival of Lights: Today we travel to historic Cambridge, Ohio to enjoy the annual Dickens Victorian Village. Journey back in time and experience old world England as historic downtown Cambridge is charmingly transformed into a Dickens Victorian Village. Our guided city tour features 88 scenes of 185 lifelike figures representing classic scenes from Victorian society. The displays include engaging depictions of classic Dickens-era scenes and figures such as Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, the town crier, groups of carolers (that actually “sing” classic carols!), a bucket \brigade, lamplighters, school children, street peddlers and Father Christmas, all posed in active scenes that appear frozen in time. Enjoy free time to explore the charming streetscape, striking historic architecture, and eclectic shops and eateries of Cambridge. Later today we enjoy the Guernsey County Courthouse Holiday Music & Light Show. The courthouse comes alive with thousands of pulsating lights synchronized to holiday music. The display is computer controlled with over 500 electrical circuits and 20,000 lights. Following dinner we travel to Oglebay Park and embark on a memorable guided tour of Oglebay’s Winter Festival of Lights display. Since 1985 the Winter Festival of Lights has been delighting visitors of all ages! This annual holiday light show is one of the nation's largest, covering more than 300 acres over a six-mile drive throughout the resort.

Day 3 Nov. 30: Pittsburgh ~ Phipps Conservatory ~ PPG Place Wintergarden & Advent Market ~ Journey Home: Following breakfast at the lodge we depart Oglebay and travel to Pittsburgh.
