Tour the last remaining operational USS LST from WWII and enjoy a lunch at the Convivium Urban Farmstead!

We’ll start our day off with a tour of the last remaining operational USS LST from WWII. This Landing Ship, Tank is an amphibious vessel designed to land battle-ready tanks, troops and supplies directly onto enemy shores. Ships of this type proved to be enormously useful during times of war and peace. Learn about the history of the ship from one if the experts and hear the stories of those that served in WWII on this iconic boat.

 

After the tour we will enjoy lunch at Convivium Urban Farmstead. Convivium&#0;is the Latin word for "feast". It is the idea of coming together in celebration around food. The mission of Convivium Urban Farmstead is to create community around food — growing, preparing, preserving, and of course, enjoying food. We will have a delicious meal followed by a tour.

 

After lunch it’s time for some dessert! We will make a stop at Betty Jane Candies. Visit this award winning family ran candy store since 1938. This establishment has had their chocolates featured in the Grammy, Emmy, & Academy Award gift bags.

 

Our last stop of the day will be at Eagle Point Park to enjoy the magnificent views. This 164 acre public park is situated on the Bluffs of the Mississippi River. You’ll see a wonderful view of the river, Illinois, and Wisconsin. You may even have the opportunity to watch a barge lock through or spot an eagle!

 

Menu: 2 meat buffet with vegetable, starch, beverage and dessert
