  • Each outing is approximately 2-4 hours long from pick up to drop off
  • Your outing will be on the same day every week depending on what part of town you reside

Where do you go?

At Urban Excursions we like to consider ourselves urban explorers! All of our outings include some kind of food option, picnic, or restaurant destination. Guests will be required to pay for any food/drink and/or admission prices to events. We visit some of our local favorite places as well as exploring new things!

After many years of creating fun and engaging outing experiences in our community for older adults, we have created a great formula for the most enjoyable, age-friendly experiences!

One day we may enjoy a picnic lunch at a miniature donkey farm, and on another day we may take in the beautiful views of the Clackamas River from the deck of the Stone Cliff Inn while enjoying a delicious artisan lunch. We may take a longer day-trip to the Oregon Coast or Columbia River Gorge one week, and the next week keep it local with a delicious lunch from a restaurant that just opened.

You will always have an interesting destination planned and a small group of two-to-three people to share it with. Not only will you have fun adventures, you will have friends to enjoy it with!
