Summer Beach Outings for Alhambra Seniors
8/7/14 8:30AM - 8/28/14 4:30PM
The City of Alhambra Senior Outings program focuses on outings to beach communities each summer, warming seniors up for the remainder of the less temperate year.
On Tuesday, July 1, seniors will register for August outings to Laguna Beach on Thursday, Aug. 7, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., fee: $12, and to Newport and Balboa Island on Thursday, Aug.28, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., fee: $12.
Laguna Beach contains not only one of the most sought after shorelines in California, but also the Sawdust Festival where visitors can browse some of the various original creations of talented crafters and artisans.
The community also has a multitude of unique shops and boutiques and a healthy selection of restaurants where participants can enjoy lunch on their own.
Shops and restaurants are also in plentitude on both the Newport Beach Peninsula and on Balboa Island, easily reachable on the Balboa Island Ferry.
Senior Outings in July will visit Seal Beach on Friday, July 11, and the Redondo Beach Pier on Friday, July 25, two outings for which registration took place last month. Phone 626-570-5056, or visit the Joslyn office, to determine if space is still available.
