Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

As the snow is beginning to melt, nice travel days are ahead.

The Travel Show was on Friday Feb. 24, and proved to us that folks are ready to enjoy what’s ahead for the next few months. Ideas shared by you set the schedule for this year’s travel. “What’s Cooking?” set the theme for the 2023 Evie’s Travel season. Virgina Kehret won the door prize.

Travel guests enjoy the comfort and convenience of someone else making all the travel plans. We are open to the public and all ages are welcome. We offer local pick up here in Austin at the Walmart south parking lot and transfers to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.
