Organizing a three-day motorcoach tour can be challenging. I’ve hosted one or two of these tours each year since 2005, including trips to Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Springfield, Illinois. The initial tours focused on visits to museums, art centers, and visual-arts-events. Recently, I’ve added theater components and travelers really have enjoyed them.
In early October I accompanied 24 travelers to the Madison area to experience some of Wisconsin’s cultural gems. The trip included a tour of the Aldo Leopold Nature Center and the award-winning “green” educational center; the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and dinner at its rooftop restaurant Fresco; Wicked at the Overture Center; Madison’s State Street area museums, Capitol, and Harvest restaurant; and Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, Hillside School, and Visitor Center at Taliesin.

• If you don’t have enough work to do, Andy, you can always hang out a shingle as a tour planner.
