Lee County EEA Schedules New Mexico Tour Trip

The Lee County Extension Education Association has a few seats remaining for their bus tour to New Mexico on July 21 through July 25. This 5-day/4-night excursion includes a full schedule of activities and events.

Guests will travel on a chartered bus from the Extension Office in Giddings to New Mexico. While in New Mexico, guests will visit the cities of Taos, Santa Fe, Chimayo and Albuquerque, while enjoying tours at Anderson- Abruzzo Balloon Museum, Turquoise Museum, National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, Ortega’s Weaving Shop, Billy the Kid Museum, Sandia Peak, El Santuario de Chimayo, Taos Pueblo Indian Village and the Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino, plus opportunity for shopping. On the third day of the trip, guests will be able to catch the sights of Santa Fe at their own pace.
