The Tour Committee of South Coastal Delaware AARP Chapter 5226 offers members the chance to explore interesting sites, both in the surrounding area and throughout the United States and beyond.  Trips include visits to historic sites, museums, theatrical and musical performances, beautiful gardens, cruises and more.  Each year we offer one or more trips out of the area.

This is a list of the trips that we are currently offering:

Apr 24-May 2, 2019Uniquely Southern1 Opening-Open to everyone

We are pleased to be able to offer our members travel options at affordable prices.  Participants appreciate the fact that all the trip details are planned and managed for them, making travel easy and enjoyable.

Members are given an exclusive opportunity to sign up for trips for 2 months following the initial announcement.  If the trip is not filled by that time, it is then open for participation by non-members.  It is a good idea to call first to check availability, if you are interested in going on one of our trips.

Trips are offered at the monthly General meeting, news letter and by broadcast e-mail.   Members attending the monthly Chapter meeting luncheon will have first priority over members calling in.  Members can telephone, text or email the day of the meeting to sign up.  If there are no openings for the trip that you are interested in, you will be automatically placed on a waiting list in the order of the calls received. The Tour Committee will no longer accept calls prior to the Chapter meeting luncheon for trip sign-ups.

Any advance trip information about a trip published on this website is strictly for your planning purposes and can change at any time until officially announced at the monthly Chapter luncheon.

The Tour Committee continues to strive for exciting, fun trips for all to enjoy!
