exhibits using the most innovative technology surround visitors with irreplaceable artifacts and

We, the Marines

We, The Marines is an action-packed, giant screen adventure that immerses audiences in the
unparalleled experience of becoming and serving as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps. Narrated by
Academy Award®-winning actor and Marine, Gene Hackman, the film follows the journey of Marines
from boot camp to training, deployment and finally homecoming. With high-definition footage filmed
at Marine Corps Bases across the nation, including Parris Island, Camp Pendleton, Camp Lejeune,
Quantico and 29 Palms, We, The Marines brings to life the often intense experience of what it takes to
serve as a Marine.

communities and maritime heritage. The tour focuses on the historic 1903 Life-Saving Station housing
the museum, including the rescuers who worked here and how they helped create modern Virginia
Beach.

Cape Henry Lighthouse

While the original Cape Henry Lighthouse is the 4th oldest lighthouse in the country, it was the first
lighthouse authorized by the U.S. government, dating from 1792. It was the first federal construction
project authorized by President George Washington after the Revolutionary War. In 1881, a newer
lighthouse was constructed 350 feet from the original. The Cape Henry Lighthouse has long served to
protect and guide vessels entering and leaving the Chesapeake Bay. Today two lighthouses stand at
Cape Henry, guardians to the gateway of the Chesapeake Bay. They have been placed on the US
National Register of Historic Places and have been designated as a National Historic Landmark.

Norfolk Naval Base

The Naval Station in Norfolk supports naval forces in the US fleet Forces Command, those operating in
the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea and Indian Ocean. NS Norfolk AKA the Norfolk Naval Base
occupies about four miles of waterfront space and seven miles of pier and wharf spaces of the
Hampton Roads Peninsula know as Sewell’s Point. It is the world’s largest naval station, supporting 75
ships and 134 aircraft alongside 14 piers and 11 aircraft hangars and houses the largest concentration
of US navy forces. Port services control more than 3100 ships movements annually as they arrive and
depart their berths.

Great Gorge was created. Trillions of gallons of water are forced into this accelerating trough–the sight
will take your breath away!

Soar the Great Gorge, high above the racing Niagara River. You’ll be transported through the air in an
antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of
the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool, sometimes frightening and
always unforgettable!

Tour & Tasting at Dark Island Spirits

Liquor historians have found that some of the best whiskeys and rum were produced in the 1700’s,
when it was transported by wagon train or in the hull of a ship. The transportation period took place
over 3-5 months and during that time, the liquid was constantly moving. Consumers found that these
transported spirits had much more depth of flavor and smoothness compared to the products that
were statically aged. With this knowledge, we set forth to develop a technology to move our spirits.
Tactile Immersed Isolated Maturation Engine, or TIIME™, is a patent pending device which allows us to
Musically Mature™ our products. This process creates liquid waves forcing the liquid outward, into the
wood, for far more barrel/liquid interaction. Dark Island Spirits is a craft distillery located in the heart
of the 1000 island region of northern New York, bordering Ontario Canada, in Alexandria Bay. Each of
their Bourbon, Brandy, Rum, Whiskey and Specialty Spirits, are Musically Matured™ to different
genres of music. The specific genre is shown on the label of each product.

Thousand Islands Winery

Thousand Islands Winery® is the largest farm winery in Northern New York State and is located along
the majestic St. Lawrence River on a historic forty acre farmstead established in 1836. The primary
grape varieties being planted in the Thousand Islands Region include Frontenac, Frontenac Gris,
Marquette, and La Crescent which were developed by the University of Minnesota. The development of
these cold-hardy grapes is the very reason we now enjoy the benefits of the ever-expanding Northern
New York wine region.

Billings Farm & Museum

Billings Farm & Museum is a fully-operational dairy farm and a museum of Vermont’s rural heritage
located in Woodstock, Vermont. The farm dates back to 1871, when Vermont native Frederick Billings
established his herd of prize-winning Jerseys and began replanting the barren hillsides. His farm
flourished and remains the oldest registered Jersey dairy farm in the country, milking cows daily,
producing raw-milk cheddar cheese, and visited by over 55,000 families and school groups each year.
Interactive programs, award-winning historical exhibits, and seasonal events introduce our visitors to
Vermont’s dairying past and present.
