DAY TRIPS AND SOCIAL EVENTS
Adventures in Lifelong Learning
Day Trips add another dimension to learning. Members enjoy interesting trips such as visits to museum, art galleries, and historical sites, seeing plays and live symphony performances, and ethnic dining. Multi-day trips even take members beyond our state's borders. Learn more about current trip offerings below.
New Guidelines for Day Trips for 2022
The Adventures In Lifelong Learning Day Trip Committee compiled these guidelines from the results of our survey February 2022. They are subject to change as COVID conditions change.
- Wearing masks on a coach bus will be individual choice. Note: The UW System, which includes UW-Parkside, has made the decision to lift its mandated mask rule to individual choice by March 18, 2022.
- If you test positive for COVID or have been exposed to someone who has COVID within 14 days before a trip you've signed up for, ALL will return your money, less $5 office fees.
- In Wisconsin, we will be dining indoors during cold months, but seeking outdoor options for other seasons.
- If wearing masks, proof of vaccine, or recent COVID testing is required by venues, you will comply. We will put that information on our flyers.
