The Dearborn Senior travel club offers a variety of travel options for those who love to see the world both close to home and abroad. Several one-day trips are offered each month for Dearborn seniors ages 50 and above. The trips, which originate from the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center parking lot, include theatrical events, casinos, sightseeing and boat rides. Transportation is by modern air-conditioned motor coach to destinations less than 150 miles from home. Seniors need not have a travel partner to participate in the One Day Travel program. Travel information is available at the Dearborn Senior Center in the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center.
A variety of cross-country trips are available for Dearborn retirees. Information sheets, detailing these trips are available at the Dearborn Senior Center, located in the Center.
Videos and slides of upcoming trips are shown at the monthly meetings of the Dearborn Travel Club, which takes place the second Thursday of the month at the Henry Ford Centennial Library Auditorium beginning at 7 pm.
