    Today we head north, returning to the Keystone State of Pennsylvania to experience the hallowed grounds of the historic Gettysburg Civil War national battleground, site of the largest battle ever fought on American soil and the place where President Lincoln gave his famous address in 1863.

    We then travel onward through rural countryside to Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Visit an Amish Museum and see their 300 year-old tradition of simple living (admission included). The Amish people live in a world that stopped in the mid-1850s. They use no electricity, mechanical devices or modern equipment.

    In the early evening we head for Toronto, Canada’s largest city, cultural centre, and the capital of Ontario.
