2020 Educator Tour Parks - National Pastime
2020 Educator Tour Parks - National Treasures
We are looking to the future and hopeful that our travels together will continue soon. Although we are not yet ready to take reservations and start booking passengers, we have determined that the most responsible, and might we say FUN thing for us to do is to support the U.S. economy that has been so devastated by the pandemic we have all been dealing with since early March.
While we are certain to offer a “Parks – National Treasures” tour, most likely to Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, and other exciting destinations in that part of the country, we are equally excited about the possibility of offering a “Parks – National Pastime” tour. Of course, both tours will include tours to other landmarks and “Bucket List” destinations along the way. This tour is subject to MLB scheduling and available seating, assuming fans will be allowed in sporting events next summer.
Parks - National Treasures - tentative date: July 2021
The highlights of this trip may include the likes of Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Rushmore, Badlands National Park. Details will be forthcoming as COVID-19 travel and park restrictions become known.Contact Karen Fleck at email@example.com if you would like to be contacted directly when the details of this trip become available.
Parks - National Pastime - tentative date: July 2021
The details of this trip, visiting iconic baseball stadiums and towns, will be forthcoming as COVID-19 restrictions and Major League Baseball details become known. Contact Steve Devan at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be contacted directly when the details of this trip become available.
Both 2021 Educator Tours have low cost trip insurance available for purchase. In 2020, every Educator Tour traveler received a 100% refund for their reservation fee, including the cost of the trip insurance, when the trip was canceled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
WHO CAN TRAVEL WITH US
All Educator Tours are open to the general public. East County Schools FCU has been the corporate sponsor of this trip since its inception and as such, the trip is largely comprised of members of the East County education community, working and retired, and their friends and families. There is so much FUN on these trips, and such a connection amongst travelers, that many travelers attend year after year. We now sponsor TWO trips a year, instead of just one for that reason. These trips are through the San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce, who hosts additional trips throughout the year.
CLASSIC vs. 2.0 TRIPS
The Educator Tour started out visiting the Wonders of The World, and travels have included Greece, Australia, Spain, Ireland, China, Istanbul and more. As the trips have aspired to not repeat locations, the limited spaces fill up, and travelers return year after year to see new places, it became apparent that a second Educator Tour would be warranted. Our President & CEO Steve Devan will host our Educator Tour Classic, traveling to new locations around the world, and the Educator Tour 2.0, hosted by our AVP of Marketing & Business Development Karen Fleck, will travel to favorite locations already traveled to, for those who missed that destinations the first go around. Now you have TWO choices, to join the most fun travel trips around!
