Day 1

Day 1
We travel north today to Fort Atkinson, WI.  This evening, at The Fireside Dinner Theatre, we see the musical version of Miracle on 34th Street. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade needs a new Santa. Enter Kris Kringle – a sweet and jolly old man who claims that he is the real Santa Claus.  Thus begins this funny, warm and inspirational musical as Kris has to prove his claim in court and teach his cynical neighbor and her daughter to believe in the goodness and love that is Christmas.
Included Meal:  Dinner

Day 2
This morning, we depart for downtown Chicago and the Magnificent Mile, the eight-block cosmopolitan strip of Michigan Avenue, where fashion giants like Prada and Louis Vuitton dot the street while three indoor malls hold even more to explore.  For those who do not wish to shop, you have the option of visiting the Museum of Science & Industry.  Later this afternoon, we continue to Oak Brook to our hotel.  Tonight we go to the Drury Lane Dinner Theatre to see one of their fabulous Broadway productions (show to be ascertained).
