SALT 2023 is winding to a close
and we are planning a fabulous schedule for SALT 2024!
We are waiving the membership fee for the remaining excursions in 2023, and we are now opening registration for the following spring trips that require our purchase of tickets months in advance!
Spring Excursions you need to book NOW!
Feb. 17, 2024, Cabaret, Coastal Carolina University, $32
CCU Theatre Department is performing this “daring, provocative and exuberantly entertaining musical.” We will attend the matinee and then go to dinner (not included in excursion fee) to discuss the performance.
Feb. 26, 2024, No Rest for the Wicked, Riga-Tony’s Murder Mystery, $65
Join us for a fun time at this new venue in Myrtle Beach. Enjoy a 1930’s mobster themed murder mystery, a wonderful Italian dinner, and a show to “die” for!
March 7-8, 2024, Hamilton, Columbia, SC, $299
We will travel to the Koger Center for the Arts in Columbia to see this Broadway sensation. This play has won Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors. We will stay overnight after the performance and explore some sights in Columbia the next morning before coming home. Meals not included. Prices based on double occupancy.
March 12-13, 2024, Six, the Musical, Charleston, SC, $299
From Tudor Queens to Pop Icons, the SIX wives of Henry VIII take the microphone to remix five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a Euphoric Celebration of 21st century girl power! This new original musical is the global sensation that everyone is losing their head over! SIX has won 23 awards in the 2021/2022 Broadway season, including the Tony Award® for Best Original Score (Music and Lyrics) and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. The SIX: LIVE ON OPENING NIGHT Broadway album debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard cast album charts and surpassed 6 Million streams in its first month. We will stay in Charleston overnight and explore a bit the next morning before coming back to the Grand Strand. Meals not included. Prices based on double occupancy.
March 21, 2024, Art Blossoms, Columbia, SC, $65
If you’ve never seen art recreated in flowers, you don’t want to miss this special exhibition of botanical beauty. The annual fundraising event features floral interpretations of famous works of art. Meals not included.
March 23, 2024, Charleston Festival of Houses and Gardens, $115
This annual event sponsored by the Garden Club of Charleston, founded in 1922, is a popular tour of Charleston’s private homes, gardens, and churches. Meals not included.
If you are interested in going on any of the trips above, you will need to send your check for the full amount to 1412 Spruce Drive, Surfside Beach, SC 29575 before December 18 so that we can purchase the tickets while they are still available. If we do not receive at least 8 registrations for any of these trips by that date, we will cancel that particular trip, notify those who have registered that the trip is cancelled, and destroy the checks. Notice that two of the trips require overnight accommodations, four are popular performances, and the last two are popular special events that sell out quickly.
Check out our national and international tours for some great travel opportunities. A SALT membership is not required to register for our national and international excursions.
To register for classes, clubs, and local excursions each semester, you must first purchase a membership by clicking on “Get Started” in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Once you have paid for the membership and have received your receipt, you can click on “Courses” or “Excursions–local excursions” to make your selection. Use the search engine (see the magnifying glass icon) to search for the titles of the courses you desire, or use the drop down menu under courses to search by category. Under each course, you will find a description and a tab for “additional information” that gives you day, time, date, and instructor. Once you have added all the courses you want to your cart, go to your cart and pay, and you will receive a receipt that lists the courses in which you are enrolled. Then, 24 hours before your course, you will receive an emailed invitation to your Zoom session. Be sure to check your spam folder in case your computer’s filter is super sensitive.
Local Excursions with SALT
We can take a minimum of 10 passengers and a maximum of 13 on each trip. Because room in the van is limited, especially if we reach the maximum number of passengers, participants are only allowed to bring one small backpack or purse on each trip. If you need to travel with additional items (e.g., walkers or wheelchairs), we ask that you drive separately (provided there is room at the venue). If the cap of 13 van passengers is reached and you would like to drive and meet us at the destination, we will also add you to the roster (provided there is room at the venue). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to drive separately.
Please pay close attention to the activity level for each excursion:
- Level 1: Easy—minimal level of physical activity, minimal walking and limited stairs or standing.
- Level 2: Moderate—some walking and standing.
- Level 3: Active—walking a mile or less, climbing stairs, standing for periods.
- Level 4: Moderately Challenging—difficult or extensive walking, sometimes over uneven terrain, stairs, and/or standing for extended periods.
- Level 5: Challenging—demanding programs for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts and/or extremely active adults.
Liability waivers should be printed out and signed and presented to Kelli or Carol at the start of the trip. (We will have copies with us if you do not have access to a printer.) You will receive a full itinerary with departure times and locations (and estimated return times) at least two days before the date of the excursion. No refunds unless we are able to fill the seat.
