Welcome to our new “Adventure Tours” page!

The St. Charles Parks and Recreation Department has been planning and conducting a “Guided” Senior Trips Program for many years that has traveled all over the country to include Hawaii in the fall of 2016.

These New “Adventure Tours” are designed for the adult of any age with the focus on giving you, the traveler, more freedom to make choices of what you want to do, where you want to go and when you want to do it, sort of free-wheeling if you will. We will provide transportation, hotel and a few meals during the trip along with tickets, if needed, for some of the main attractions.

The activities during the Adventure Tours may include hiking, biking, rafting, zip-lining or perhaps just relaxing at your leisure–the possibilities are endless! Each “Adventure Tour,” like all of our extended trips, will include a detailed itinerary outlining our group activities as well as a list of the options available to you the traveler to explore at your leisure. We hope you will join us!

Take a look at our upcoming Adventure Tours.

JUNE 2 – JUNE 5, 2017 (4 DAY TRIP)

Get your family and friends together for a weekend getaway to the Windy City. We’ll travel by bus Friday, June 2 and catch a St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs game when we arrive. After the game, we’ll take you back to the hotel so you can get some rest before exploring the city Saturday and Sunday. The hotel will be in a convenient location so that you can enjoy the city on your own, to do whatever sightseeing or activities you wish. We will return back to St. Charles on Monday, June 5. Cost of this trip will include your hotel stay, transportation to and from Chicago and tickets to the Cardinals game.
