Coastal Travel Club

Announcing New Travel Club Format:

The Coastal Travel Club was originally formed through the

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute seven years ago. 

We will continue to hold monthly meetings, organize travel

and have socials, but we will no longer be affiliated with OLLI.

Future dates:

December:  No regular meetings, but join us for “Nights of a Thousand 1000 Candles”  at Brookgreen Gardens.  Entry to Brookgreen Gardens as early as 3PM, group dinner at 4:30 PM, then walk the paths with the glow of 5,500 hand-lit candles, Christmas music and carolers.  Only 50 tickets available for $30 per person.

You will notice that some months we have scheduled combined club meetings, to include our Litchfield and Myrtle Beach Members. 

No dues will be required to be a member  of our travel club, and we invite everyone to attend.  Bill, Judy, Kathy and Bruce Blackburn will continue to be the Club and travel hosts. 

Along with learning about travel and new opportunities, members are encouraged to participate in classes by sharing their traveling adventures with others. 

       We will continue to organize travel of all types– cruises, tours, road trips and outings,

and all trips will be hosted by the Blackburns.


Our meeting include useful and new travel information and tips, member travelogs, highlights on trends in traveling, types of travel and not to miss locations within North America, the Caribbean and abroad.  Throughout the year, we organize and invite everyone to join us on tours, cruises, local events, and bus trips.  We also schedule several culinary experiences to enjoy local ethnic foods and learn about other cultures.  And we will be happy to organize and promote a trip for you and your friends as well.
