Trips

Northfield Senior Center offers a variety of travel opportunities including “Out to Lunch” excursions, day outings to specific events, and longer-term trips to both United States and world-wide destinations.

The Travel Committee plans, schedules, and escorts all events. “Out to Lunch” diners meet at the chosen restaurant. Trip attendees are transported by charter bus to many delightful, insightful and entertaining venues. Past adventures have found us visiting many of the Twin Cities’ museums or theaters, taking historical tours of many wonderful cities, or attending the State Fair. Occasionally, an overnight trip is planned.
