Yerkes Observatory and Grand Bell Jazz Dinner Cruise Beaver Dam
Yerkes Observatory and Grand Belle Jazz Dinner Cruise!
July 26, 2024 (Friday) Cost: $178.00
You’re not going to want to miss this trip! Our first stop will be at Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. Here you will experience this reimagined and reawakened international landmark. The 1.5 hour tour is upbeat and fun (3:00 pm – 4:30 pm). The tour involves astronomy, architecture, Geneva Lake District history, restoration and the stories of the humans from around the world who made their mark on science in Yerkes’ spaces. It houses the largest optical refracting telescope in the world that is currently in operation. I was told this will be something you will never forget, truly amazing! Albert Einstein visited here, now it’s your turn!
Next on our itinerary is to hop aboard the Grand Belle jazz dinner cruise, which is just down the road about 15 minutes in the quaint little town of Lake Geneva. We’ll have about 1.5 hours to hang and shop here before we board the Grand Belle around 6:30 pm. This fantastic evening jazz dinner cruise will also include the captain providing some highlights of a few estates, while you are enjoying the beautiful scenery. The cruise will take place from 7:00 to 9:30 pm and your entrees choices are either steak or salmon. It is going to be amazing!
