Trips

If you have suggestions about travel ideas, please contact the Senior Center office at 860-739-5859. We will consider all requests. Don’t be shy – tell us what is on your bucket list.

Day Trips are planned for the months of April through December. On average, there are 2 Day Trips per month scheduled. These trips are held in conjunction with Lymes’ Senior Center and Waterford Senior Services as a way to ensure enough registrations for a trip to run. Day Trips are open to adults.

Registration dates for Day Trips are noted on their specific flyer. It is important to register as soon as you can. If a Day Trip is full, be sure to put your name on the Wait List. If there are enough names on the Wait List, we will look to run a second bus or to schedule the same trip at a later date. If that happens, all names on the Wait List will be called first.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our Day Trips are on hold. We are looking at resuming them in the fall of 2021. We are promoting overnight trips at this time for the 2021 calendar year.

OVERNIGHT TRIPS/CRUISES

    Let’s Connect & Explore Nashville together via Zoom. We’ll be joined with our friends from the Nashville Conventions and Visitors Corp.

    Creativity is the heart and soul of Music City and there’s never a shortage of inspiring things to do. From music, culture, and the arts to food, sports, and shopping, there is an “only in Nashville” experience waiting for you. There are so many great reasons to visit Nashville – even if it’s just virtual at the moment.

    Explore this great city on a virtual tour of Nashville’s most popular sites, including an    inside look at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and the Ryman Auditorium.    Take a “walk” through Nashville’s historic downtown and Music City Walk of Fame Park.  Learn how to make your own Goo Goo Cluster, the world’s first combination candy bar!  Our trip to Nashville would not be complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry!  Go backstage and see the dressing rooms and learn the history of the show that made country music famous.

    Registration in advance is required. Contact the Senior Center with your interest and we will forward the Zoom link. If you have never used Zoom before, we can walk you through the process so you can enjoy our trip to Nashville.
