The Tour Committee of the South Coastal Delaware Chapter 5226 of AARP offers members the chance to explore interesting sites both in the surrounding area and throughout the United States and beyond.  Trips include visits to historic sites, museums, theatrical and musical performances, beautiful gardens, cruises and more.  Each year we offer one or more trips beyond the area.

We are pleased that we are able to offer our members travel options at affordable prices.  Participants like the fact that all the trip details are planned and managed for them, making travel easy and enjoyable.

Members are given an exclusive opportunity to sign up for trips for two months from the initial announcement.  If the trip is not filled by that time, it is then open for participation by non-members so call if you are interested in going on one of our trips.

Members attending the monthly general meeting luncheon will have first priority over members calling in.  Members can phone, text or email the day of the meeting to sign up, if there should not be any openings for the trip you will be placed on the waiting list automatically in the order of the calls. The Tour Committee will no longer accept calls prior to the general luncheon meeting for trip sign ups. 

 Any advance trip information of a trip on this web site is strictly for your planning as information and can change at any time until officially announced at the monthly luncheon.  Our Tour Committee continues to strive for more exciting, fun trips for all to enjoy.
