Scheduled Outing

The scheduled outing will be on Tuesday, June 18. After the morning devotions, join our local guides on an outing to Carlsbad. We'll start with walking along the paved path along Carlsbad State Beach. This 1.5-mile loop provides both an elevated overlook of the beach as well as a sand-level view. The loop includes walking up and down an incline, but no stairs are required. Participants also have the option of simply enjoying the view and the sand while others walk. Next, we'll head over to the Museum of Making Music, a unique interactive museum that explores the history of making and using instruments throughout time and across cultures. You can even try some instruments for yourself! Once we're finished jamming, we'll venture over to the Windmill Food Hall. This place offers a dozen food vendor options with shared seating so that everyone can find something for their taste buds -- including pizza & pasta, burgers & wraps, pho & Thai bowls, lobster rolls & tacos, and more.  We'll finish our outing with a leisurely visit to the Carlsbad Outlet Mall with over 50 stores & boutiques. Note: We will be returning to the EURC in time for those who pre-registered to have dinner with the delegates. 

This outing requires registration. Transportation and the entrance fee to the Museum of Making Music is included in the $10.00US ($14.00CDN) fee.  Lunch will be paid for by the participant.
