Entertain and educate yourself with 50 Plus day trip to Lawrence on June 11
POSTED: 05/13/2015
Tour the beautiful campus of the University of Kansas in Lawrence and hear about the school's long, proud history during a mid-June day trip being planned by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

Learning in Lawrence is the name of this trip. The tour will start at the Dole Institute of Politics where participants will learn about government and see a soaring stained-glass flag and stirring World Trade Center Memorial. Animal dioramas from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and a mosasaur skeleton are the centerpieces of the Natural History Museum. The group will stop for lunch at the Free State Brewery, and afterwards have a chance to relax and shop on Lawrence's busy Massachusetts Street, where travelers can browse a variety of shops for items from candles to kitchenware, to European cheeses and truffles.

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 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 11, from Antioch Park 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 4 p.m. that day. The cost is $69 per person and includes lunch.

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) 826-3030.
