RE: Unlock the Mystery day trip offered on May 6

Head out of town for a day of good surprises on a mystery motorcoach day trip being offered in early May by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

This trip is called Unlock the Mystery. Participants will discover clues along the way, which will point the way to your final destination. Along the way, you'll learn about three unique venues with guided tours at each stop. Enjoy a catered lunch at an old but new place. One hint is that even the name of this trip is a clue to the first destination!

To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under travel. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “day trip.”

This trip will leave at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 6, from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 5:30 p.m. that night. The cost is $69 per person and includes lunch.
