We head north to Las Vegas to visit a special part of Fred Harvey history in New Mexico. The Harvey Girls will guide us throughout the day. Our first stop will be Montezuma Castle. Built by the ATSF railroad as a luxury hotel in 1886, it was designed to capitalize on the natural hot springs on the site. After our tour we will have lunch at the Plaza Hotel downtown and there will be time to enjoy the area before we head to La Castaneda Hotel for a private tour. La Castaneda (1898) is one of the few grand railroad hotels remaining. Long vacant and in much need of repair the property was recently purchased and is undergoing renovation. You will be some of the first to see inside this 50,000 square foot Mission Revival Style masterpiece. After the tour there will be time to visit the area before heading home. (Trip limit 30 – Suggested donation $10.00 per person – Lunch menu and costs have not yet been finalized.)
