MiraCosta Community Education staff take the time to research some of the hottest spots to visit in the Southern California region.  We want to bring you the excitement of a day spent exploring new places . . . but without the hassle of driving, parking and following directions.  We provide entertaining, sometimes educational, but always fun day trips for you, your family and your friends to enjoy.  

We look forward to offering more Day Trips when COVID-19 is behind us.  Until then, try our cooking, wine tasting or T'ai Chi classes . . . and imagine you are somewhere exotic while discovering new ways to stay closer to home!
