Travel excursions

Hollywood Bowl fireworks - a common trip for the program.

The Burns Community Center is the hub for the city’s regional travel excursions and active senior programs. The convenient trips typically include the cost of travel AND admission in one price. Trips range from Santa Barbara to San Juan Capistrano. Recent trips have included runs to the Carlsbad Flower Fields, Newport Boat Parade, Getty Museum, the Hollywood Bowl and more than one Presidential museum.

Guests park and check in at the Burns Community Center and then leave the driving to a bus driver. It’s an affordable and convenient way to take a trip to unique activities like visiting the California Strawberry Festival in Oxnard or the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach without having to drive.

Upcoming trips are announced three times a year in the city’s main recreation catalog. Click here for the trips currently available(PDF, 93KB).
