SALT Excursions

Travel with SALT!

What’s Next? Senior Adventures in Learning and Travel (SALT), LLC offers local, regional, national, and international travel opportunities for seniors. National and international tours are contracted with Premier World Discovery, so participants will register through them and adhere to their rules regarding travel. You don’t have to be a member of SALT to go on our national and international tours. Liability waivers will need to be completed for all local and regional travel with SALT.

Overnight Regional Excursions

To register for the overnight excursions, we ask you to send the specified deposit per person to SALT, 1412 Spruce Drive, Surfside Beach, SC 29575 by the deadline established for each trip. Please send your name and contact information, the trip that you wish to go on, and a check made out to SALT. Once we have enough participants who have committed with a deposit, we will book the venues and ask for the balance. 

Sunday, Oct. 15-Wednesday, Oct. 18, Mountain Getaway, $550  (2 spots remaining)

We will be renting a VRBO or Airbnb that will accommodate 12 of us, so this trip is limited to 10 people who can get along well with others for four days. Some of the places we’ve been looking at are amazing, with lots of fun toys (from pool tables to hot tubs), beautiful views, and hiking opportunities. Activities and included meals will be determined once we secure a location and have a set number of travelers. Departure time is 8 a.m. Activity level: 3. Deposit of $225 due by August 11.



Monday, November 27-Wednesday, November 29, Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC, $599

We have taken this trip several times, but we never tire of seeing the Biltmore Estate decorated for the holidays. We hope to have enough participants to take a motor coach to Asheville where we will tour the Biltmore Estate, indulge in a delicious buffet dinner at the beautiful Deer Park Inn, and enjoy the lovely gardens and conservatory as well as Antler Village, where retail shops and the Biltmore Winery offer excellent shopping and tasting opportunities. If time permits, we will also provide free time in downtown Asheville, where our foodies and shoppers will delight in the many restaurants and stores available to them. The anticipated cost, $599, is dependent on number of registered travelers. Breakfasts included. Departure time 9 a.m. Deposit of $200 due by September 15. Activity level 4.
