As we begin to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic one of the things we are most excited about is resuming our educational travel programs. These are great opportunities to interact with history and get back out in the world. Here are two exciting events we have coming up:
Florida Trust for Historic Preservation’s Rail Excursion
Sept. 25 – 28, 2021
All aboard! Join us as we experience some of Florida’s unique historic places by train – the mode of transportation that helped define and build the Florida we know today.
Our train excursion includes:
· Amtrak train travel from DeLand to Tampa and then Miami and three hotel stays (two nights in Miami and one in Tampa)
· A private walking tour of historic Ybor City and a delicious group dinner at the historic Columbia Restaurant
· Experience the historic Everglades National Park with an everglades airboat tour and catch a special view of Miami’s skyline on a boat tour of Biscayne Bay
Florida Trust’s Reflections of Italy Tour
Nov. 8 – 17, 2021
Our travel partner Collette has shared with us a very positive travel update for our Reflections of Italy trip November 8 through 17. This is a wonderful trip – and we think there will be no better time to la dolce vita experience than this fall!
With the significant decline of COVID cases and the rise of vaccinations, Collette reported feeling positive about the trip would move forward. So make plans to join us knowing Collette is monitoring all public health advisories and applicable travel restrictions for all tours. If our tour is cancelled, all travelers will be offered the option to change travel date or be provided a full refund. For answers to frequently asked questions click here.
