Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Our first trip of the 2023 season had our travelers experiencing some warmth and signs of spring as they traveled to Charleston, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia, and Jekyll Island. We heard folks saying when we got back, “I wish I would have joined them on that trip.”

You will be hearing more soon about this tour.

These are travel plans we have available now with others to be added soon.

• The April 13-14 trip to the Fireside Dinner Theatre in Ft. Atkinson, Wisconsin will be our first next trip this season. We are looking forward to the Minnesota-themed production of “Grumpy Old Men.” 

Meeting the cast on opening night will be a special treat. This show will be a musical comedy. 

The second day our stop will be at  Mount Horeb, a Scandinavian community claiming to be the World’s Troll Capital. We are looking forward to exploring and being among 30 plus hand cut trolls. All of these were carved by one person and each with a different personality. We will be departing at 8 a.m. from Walmart.

Our May trip will take us on a return visit to  the Chanhassen Dinner Theater to see the all new production of “Prom.” This show is like a promo as it is only scheduled to run a few months.

We will be returning on July 26 for Chanhassen’s’ “Jersey Boys” musical show.

A quick look at other trips on our schedule this year will include: 

• June 15: Mystery Trip  

• June 22: Minnesota Twins vs Boston Red Sox, day game

• July 10: John Deere plant tour  

• Aug. 2-8:  Iceland by air
