    Treasures From Simple Pleasures

    Begin the day by heading to downtown Wilmington for shopping at an historic mill that includes an antique mall and a unique gift shop—all under one roof. From there it's on to the historic Murphy Theatre, for a catered lunch in the lobby, a personalized tour of the theatre, and then the curtain goes up for a private show. Built in 1918 by the owner of the Chicago Cubs, the 750 seat theatre has been the beacon of the historic district for over 90 years. The grandeur of the Murphy is reminiscent of the beautiful theaters built during that time period. The Murphy continues to hold monthly shows by nationally acclaimed performers, recording artists and entertainers. Next, it's on to Grandpa's Pottery, our local potter, who operates out of a barn on his farm. Watch as a lump of clay is turned into a beautiful piece of art on the potter's wheel and then see finished pieces in the showroom. Finally it's back to the hotel so the group can freshen up for dinner before heading to the General Denver for a home-cooked meal served in the dining room of this beautiful historic hotel. After getting a good night's sleep and breakfast, spend the day in Cincinnati enjoying their many attractions such as the Cincinnati Art Museum, Cincinnati Museum Center or the Freedom Center.
