A wide variety of trips, tours and adventures coordinated by Recreation Without Borders (RWB) await you! 
We offer trips directly through our own website, emails and announcements as well as through Marysville Parks and Recreation (MPR), Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation (MVPR), Bellingham Parks and Recreation (BellPR) and San Juan Island Park and Recreation District (SJI). We also coordinate trips for the Skagit County Senior Centers (SCSC) and the Whatcom County Council on Aging (WCCOA). 
Typically, new trips are posted every three to four months in conjunction with each departments quarterly Recreation and Activity Guides. However RWB trips and tours will be updated on a more frequent basis.
We also contract trips through many private organizations and individuals. We love offering private trips and helping you plan a special outing for friends, family or co-workers. Ideas include: wine tours, Canadian adventures, birthday parties for youth, teens or adults, hiking or snowshoe excursions, theater productions, bachelorette parties, sporting events including private suite rentals, etc. The possibilities are endless!
To see a complete listing of current trips offered through each department or RWB, please click on a sub-category located to the left. Registrations are handled through the respective parks and recreation offices, the Anacortes Senior Center or RWB directly.

Please pay close attention to registration deadlines since they vary quite a bit due to ticket, hotel, travel and other reservations specific and narrow timelines.
You may always call or email RWB for further information on all the trips as well as inquiring about your own private outing.
We take pride in our planning and implementation of each trip.  Remember...
Lastly, we co-sponsor and help coordinate the ever-popular All Comers Track Meets with Burlington Parks and Recreation (BPR) throughout the months of June and July. All meets are held at the BEHS track. Events are available for all ages and abilities! The meets are great family fun! Call BPR at 360-755-9649 for more information about these wonderful events.
We look forward to meeting you and/or seeing you again very soon!
