Day Trips

Day Trips are travel programs that don't require an overnight stay. Payment must be made in full at the time of registration. Roundtrip transportation for Day Trips from the Concord Senior Center will be provided on a commercial motor coach. The motor coach is ADA accessible and features a restroom on board. Please plan to park in the East parking lot (2nd parking lot) at the Concord Senior Center.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Read the descriptions of the travel program. Determine if the mobility rating is appropriate for your physical fitness level and health.

  • Level 1: At a leisurely pace, this trip involves minimal physical activity, such as boarding a motor coach, light walking (only up to a few city blocks), and short periods of standing. This level would be wheelchair, cane, and walker accessible.
  • Level 2: This trip may require some periods of standing and light walking along stairs, inclines, and uneven surfaces. This trip would likely not be accessible for wheelchairs, canes, or walkers.
  • Level 3: This trip may require substantial periods of walking and standing, sometimes on uneven terrain or stairs. This trip would not be accessible for wheelchairs, canes, or walkers.
