Boomers 2019 Travel & Hike Planning Party

September 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Boomers 2019 Travel & Hike Planning Party

 Greetings to all of our current and prospective travel and hiking adventurers! It is that time of year again to come together with ideas and suggestions for the 2019 Trips and Hikes lists. From 1:00 – 2:00 pm on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, everyone can enjoy rootbeer floats and toss around fun ideas for new places to experience and explore.

Start your research now and build your bucket list with us! Where would you like to go to have new experiences on trips? Is there a particular trail you would like to explore? What weekend getaway would entice you?

2018 has been a very busy year for our travelers and hikers. Adventurers have a choice of 42 trips and 27 hikes to choose from. Our overnight trip this year was to Gold Beach, OR. Our travelers spent the night at Jot’s Resort, and the following morning stepped onto a jetboat for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with Jerry’s Rogue Jets. Everyone had a wonderful time and asked me “when can we go again?”

2018 is the first year that the Newport 60+ Activity Center has offered hikes. People can choose from local hikes to places like: Depoe Bay Nature Trail, South Beach South Jetty Trail, to wonderful trails in and around Yachats. Other choices are hikes in and around Corvallis, like Mary’s Peak, Alsea Falls, Trail of Ten Falls in Silver Falls State Park, or enjoy the wildlife hiking at Finley Wildlife Preserve. These are just a few of the choices of places to explore.

Is international travel on your bucket list? On Monday, September 24, 2018, from 2:00 – 3:00 pm, Laura Hernandez with Collette Travel, will be here to give a presentation about two exciting trips: Canadian Rockies by Train in June 2019, and Rome & the Amalfi Coast Tour in October 2019.

Canadian Rockies: Climb aboard as VIA Rail’s The Canadian takes you between Vancouver and Jasper on a once-in-a-lifetime overnight train journey. Experience the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains and the sheer unspoiled wilderness of Canada. This 8 day tour also includes the unforgettable Icefields Parkway, Lake Louise, Banff, and Calgary with overnights in the region’s most elegant hotels and resorts.

Rome and the Amalfi Coast: Join us on a 10 day journey through southern Italy and embrace its rich scenery, art, culture, food and wines. Your tour starts in Rome revealing all its iconic treasures including an in-depth tour of the Colosseum and an opportunity to visit the Vatican. Then travel to the Amalfi Coast where we will spend 5 nights in Sorrento exploring the rugged coastline including the Island of Capri, Minori, Paestum, and the ruins of Pompeii.
