Community Education 2012 Travel Options

Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park

August 11, 2012
$2999 air & land (single supp. $800)

The Icefields Parkway

Your tour of the Canadian Rockies features a drive along the incredible Icefields Parkway. Paralleling the Great Divide, this special roadway is home to some of the most dramatic vistas in all of North America. Here, snow-capped mountains engulf the landscape, casting shadows on the adjacent glacial streams. During the 1800s, a similar route was used by the fur traders. The first roadway was built in the 1930s and the present parkway was completed by 1965. Highlighting your trip along the Icefields Parkway is a stop at the Columbia Icefield — a dramatic, 200-square mile stretch of land filled with glaciers. Here you may have an opportunity to ride across a 1,000-foot thick glacier. Call (310) 434-3400 for more information. Sign up for the FREE Tour Orientation on Tuesday, January 10, 2012.

Cruise Lake Winnipesaukee

A visit to New Hampshire is not complete without a sail on its largest lake, Winnipesaukee, aboard the famous motorship Mount Washington. Since 1872 there have been only two vessels named Mount Washington; the original vessel being built by the Boston & Maine Railroad Company for the purpose of transporting travelers and cargo from one side of the big lake to the other. Today the “Mount” provides the best opportunity to enjoy the scenic beauty of the region including the White Mountains, luxurious lakefront homes, and ports like Weirs Beach, Wolfeboro and Meredith. With its wide, spacious decks, there is ample room to move about on this 1,250-passenger vessel while a local expert will call your attention to the interesting views, points of interest and local lore. Call (310) 434-3400 for more information. Sign up for the FREE Tour Orientation on Tuesday, January 10, 2012.
