Fire & Ice Stourbridge Railroad
Enjoy a ride abroad the Stourbridge Line on June 29, 2018 with Martz, offering scenic views in the Northern Pocono Region. We’ll hop aboard the train in Honesdale and head to Hawley and back, traveling along Laxawaxen River where you just might see a bald eagle or two! Following the serene train ride, we’ll stop at the quaint Settlers Inn in Hawley, PA for a wonderful buffet lunch, including mixed green salad, grilled chicken over wild rice, and more. Following lunch, we will head to Dorflinger Factory Museum in White Mills, PA. The museum houses an extensive collection of glass produced by the Dorflinger Factory in the late 1880’s into the early 1900’s.
Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame and Bat Factory
Come visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY with Martz on July 11, 2018! This museum’s collections feature nearly 40,000 three-dimensional items, 3 million books and documents, and 500,000 photographs telling visitors the story of baseball. A highlight of this tour is the Plaque Gallery, showcasing the bronze plaques that make up the most exclusive sports Hall of Fame. Note that only one percent of those who have played baseball in the major leagues have earned a spot in the Hall of Fame.
Members of the Cooperstown bus tour will be able to spend as much time as they want in the museum. Feel free to go on your own for lunch downtown at the Doubleday Café, Alex’s Bistro, or Hawkeye Bar & Grill. After lunch, visit the Cooperstown Bat Company Bat Factory where staff will demonstrate the art of turning a bat, taking it from a block of wood to a sport staple. You won’t want to miss this Martz tour!
