The Clearfield Center for Active Living invites the public to join in on upcoming tours this spring.  Planned are a Washington Cherry Blossom and Sightseeing Tour, and a Dogwood Tour and Carriage Ride at historic RiverStone Estate.

On April 5, the group will travel with Fullington Bus Tours to Washington D.C.  Cost of the tour is $84 and includes viewing the cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin, and an afternoon, guided bus tour of Washington’s historic monuments, with some stops.

The Dogwood Tour and Carriage ride will be May 13, in Foxburg, near Clarion.  The group will tour historic RiverStone Estate by carriage in the morning.  Lunch will follow, at the Allegheny Grill along the Allegheny River, and additional stops may include the Foxburg Wine Cellars and Divani Chocolate Boutique.

Stunning RiverStone mansion was completed in 1828 by the prominent Fox family, and has been meticulously restored.  The 1,200-plus acre riverfront property is located at the joining of the Clarion and Allegheny Rivers, and is known for its breathtaking views and remarkable craftsmanship.

The grounds contain 26 structures, including extensive equestrian facilities, a greenhouse, carriage house, aviary, and event centers.  Cost of the carriage ride and tour is $25, and for those wishing to carpool to Foxburg, an additional $10.

Meal prices are not included in costs on either the Cherry Blossom or the Dogwood Tour. Reservations are taken on a first come, first serve basis.

The Clearfield Center is open 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is located in the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging building at 103 N. Front St. in Clearfield.  Information on this and other programs, meals, and activities is available by calling the Clearfield Center at 814-765-9319 or 1-800-225-8571, or by visiting the CCAAA Web site at www.ccaaa.net.
