The Acworth Parks, Recreation and Community Resource Department offers monthly day trips for senior adults. Seniors traveled to locations that include Gibbs Gardens, Chateau Elan, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Chattanooga, Tenn. and CNN Center.
Overnight trips are also offered twice each year.
In March, the active adults in the “Seniors Got Groove” group traveled to Charleston, S.C., for a four-day, three-night getaway. The group of 22 stayed in the Charleston Historic District. They cruised Charleston Harbor, toured the Aiken-Rhett House and Nathaniel Russell House, viewed the Angel Oak Tree and toured Charleston Tea Plantation.
The trip was packed with activities, and participants enjoyed the chance to get away and get to know each other better, according to Lauren Ham, Special Populations Coordinator at Acworth Parks, Recreation and Community Department.
In December, the group will travel to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tenn.
The cost for trips varies depending on location. To register and for pricing, go to Acworth.org. Click on the Parks and Recreation tab at the bottom of the screen, then click on the Special Populations tab and then Senior Programs.
