Join us for an exciting behind the scenes tour of the famous Tempel Lippizans, where we will get up close and personal with these beautiful horses and learn all about this breed of horses and Spanish Riding dating back to the 1500’s. The tour ends with observation of a daily training session and questions with the trainers and riders. We then head off to the Shanty, which was featured on the T.V. show Diner’s Dives and Drive-in’s, for lunch featuring a buffet of rolls, mediterranean salad, garlic mashed potatoes or saute’ed vegetables, apple brandy pork shanks or chicken saltimbocca, dessert and coke products. Our next stop will be the Lynfred Winery for three types of wine tasting. Our trip would not be complete without a stop at the Long Grove Chocolate Factory Outlet for a little shopping. Moderate walking on uneven paths. Transportation via Park District van.
