50 Plus Day Trip promises participants a Ghost Tour in Excelsior Springs
POSTED: 10/08/2014
Embark on a Halloween adventure to Excelsior Springs, Mo., and the historic Elms Resort during an Oct. 31day trip being planned by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

The trip is called Ghost Tour and will include eerie tales and stories about the famous people who have stayed at - and perhaps never fully left - this famous hotel located north of Kansas City. Participants will enjoy lunch and a Halloween treat at the Ventana Gourmet Grill in downtown Excelsior Springs, before visiting the city's Hall of Waters and the Excelsior Springs Museum for more spooky fun. This trip will involve some walking and stairs.

To find this trip 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 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 31, from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 5 p.m. The cost is $79 per person and includes lunch. Organizers anticipate this tour will fill, so register early!

While JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District’s Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.

The JCPRD’s Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. For updated program listings, visit the District’s website at
