All Aboard! The Griswold Center Wants YOU on Their Next Trip

Looking for adventure in the New Year? Perhaps you’re interested in traveling but dread the research and work that goes into planning a great trip. The Griswold Center can help. Over the past 14 years, they’ve hosted dozens of exciting trips geared toward people 55 years and older—but available to anyone who wants to join in.

From the sandy beaches of the Caribbean, to Alaska, New Zealand and the Panama Canal—and most recently even Cuba—the Griswold Center offers trips for every type of traveler. So whether you’re a nature enthusiast who enjoys gorgeous scenery, a history buff who loves museums or a poolside lounger, they have a trip with your name on it.

“Our trips offer folks the ability to see and do things that would be difficult to organize on their own,” said Mary Kay Scott, recreations supervisor. “We’re always researching new excursions and getting feedback from our members on where we should head next.”
