Our 2015 Tours
Armed Forces Day on the USS Midway, May 16, 2015
Thanks for a successful tour!
President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together
and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.
And what better way to celebrate our armed forces than to encounter the awesome size and power of the
USS Midway and experience what it must have been like to serve on a ship that was once the largest in the world.
Our exclusive all-day tour includes travel from Los Angeles and Orange county Amtrak stations to San Diego and
back aboard vintage private railcar Colonial Crafts, and a special behind-the scenes tour
of the Midway conducted by Scott McGaugh, Midway Museum Marketing Director historian
and author of three books on the USS Midway.
Priced at $259/person. 10% earlybird discount for bookings received before 4/1/15.
