2019/2020 FALL TRIPS & TOURS

You may select one or all the tours. The cost of each tour covers transportation, admission fees and lunch, if indicated. Our organization must pay fees in advance and cannot accept cancellations once reservations are made. If you cannot go on a trip, another person may use that reservation with the registration receipt. Refunds are made only for health emergencies or if the trip is cancelled. The school office needs to know the names of any substitutes for the final trip roster. If you find a substitute, they can reimburse you for the trip.

Depending on weather conditions, buses tend to be on the cool side, please bring a light jacket or cover-up, if you feel you may be uncomfortable.


The meeting place for all trips is the main entrance (front door) of United Methodist Church of Sun City Center. Please plan to arrive 20 minutes before departure time. 

Before boarding the bus, pick up your name tag in the lobby and your name will be checked off on the trip roster.


Don’t forget to arrive 20-30 minutes before departure time! Return to church time is the time you will be back at the church. Note: Return times are approximate. Depending on weather and traffic conditions, it could be later.

Make Memories Aboard the Charming Anna Maria Princess


The Anna Maria Princess is the only paddle wheel boat sailing the waters of AMI and Longboat Key.  Measuring about 80 feet from bow to stern, the boat was built in 2002. Was extensively refurbished prior to its inaugural Sarasota Bay cruise in 2018.


Featuring ornate wrought iron railings & massive wooden paddle wheels, the Anna Maria Princess is fashioned after a classic design. With two decks, the lower enclosed deck is climate-controlled with air conditioning and heating.


The Anna Maria Princess uses diesel engines, which are much safer than steam engines, to turn its massive twin paddle wheels.
 

· Before heading to the Princess, make a lunch stop at Anna Maria Oyster Bar, Ellenton 

“Meal on your own”

 Cost is $46 (Includes Bus Trip and Boat Trip)

Bus leaves Church at 11:45 AM Returns at 6:30 PM

After an exotically beautiful and shaded stretch of canopied palm trees.  You’ll discover Snook Haven, a tin-roofed and rustic restaurant, at the end of the road. Truly unique to Sarasota, the Venice landmark is “Ole’ Florida” at its finest and settled smack dab on the Myakka River. Come on in and take a seat!

You can experience it all, from BBQ, brews, boats, bands and banjos to backwoods beauty.  Snook Haven has a wild, yet extraordinary history of felonious activities, feature films and fishing camps.
