Shoppers, Sightseers Delighted with A1 Tours
Shopping for holiday gifts can be a dream or a nightmare before Christmas. By combining a sightseeing expedition with a shopping excursion, A1 Tours wants to treat you and your family to a fun half-day of delightful entertainment while you shop. You’ll have nothing to worry about – just leave the driving to them!
A1’s Sighteers-Shoppers Delight – one of the best Atlantic City packages – begins and ends at Brighton Park, where Park Place meets the Boardwalk in front of the Korean War Memorial. This tour includes visits to:
- The Noyes – a museum of contemporary fine art, traditional folk art and crafts, near the Edwin Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. Here you can study paintings from 19th- to 21st-century American artists, discover the 350-piece collection of vintage bird decoys and admire inspiring pieces in the serene outdoor lakeside sculpture garden.
- The Historic Towne of Smithville and the Village Greene – a delightfully quaint village ideal for shopping. You won’t find any “big box” stores and national chains, but along cobblestone streets look for socially-conscious specialty shops stocked with quirky, funky, whimsical, fair-trade and one-of-a-kind items. You’re sure to find the perfect present for everyone on your holiday list – whether they love art, angels, apparel, all things Irish, books, bakery goods, butterflies, candy, designer handbags, dream catchers, garden and kitchen accessories, jewelry, musical instruments, tea or vintage toys.
o Kids of all ages will enjoy riding the carousel or train, playing arcade games or just watching roosters and ducks wonder about the town.
o And you won’t go home hungry! Included in the Atlantic City package deal is a stop for lunch at the historic Smithville Inn. Voted “Best Offshore Restaurant” by Atlantic City Magazine, Smithville Inn serves sophisticated comfort food in a cozy environment.
Each ticket includes round-trip transportation, museum admission and lunch. The cost is $74.95 per adult, $64.95 per child 12 and under. Senior discounts available.
