FiftyNorth offers a variety of travel opportunities including theater, concerts, river cruises, museums, professional sports events and so much more! 

The Travel Committee plans, schedules, and escorts all events. Trip attendees are transported by charter bus to many delightful, insightful and entertaining venues. Past adventures have found us visiting many of the Twin Cities’ museums or theaters, taking historical tours of unique cities, or attending a Twins or Saints game. Occasionally, an overnight travel adventure is planned. Scholarships are available to help defray the cost for our more expensive adventures.

You may sign up for any of these trips online with credit card payment, or come into the Center and fill out a registration form, attach payment and put into registration slot behind the Reception Desk.  To sign up online, click on the name of the trip.

If you have ideas for a trip adventure for the Travel Committee to consider, please contact Craig Swenson at 664-3702.
