We offer organized day trips and overnight travel led by trained volunteers and staff. Our day trips are one-day excursions that include cruises, theatre, casinos, sightseeing or antiques shopping. Participants have the opportunity to visit new cities and towns, and to socialize with new and old friends.

Our overnight trips range in length from a few days to a few weeks, and include Canadian, North American and international destinations, all at an affordable cost and an appropriate pace for older adult travelers.
