Exploration - EXPLO at Wellesley: Trips - EXPLO


Where Will You Explore this Summer?

Choice at EXPLO extends to weekend trips. Our weekend trips offer you an amazing opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of Boston and the New England area. And at EXPLO, you’re not stuck taking a trip that everyone else is taking. Each weekend, you will choose from 15-20 different cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities, including sight-seeing, theater trips, outdoor adventures, and on-campus staff-led clinics. Sound like fun? It is!

More Than 20 Different Trip Choices Each Weekend!

You will sign up for weekend trips at the program. All residential students attend weekend trips, and day students are highly encouraged to join in, too. Trips are another powerful way to meet new friends from around the world who share your interests, and explore some pretty cool places, too.

Overnight Trip to New York City ($375)

First Session: July 6 – July 7, 2019
Second Session: July 27 – July 28, 2019

Experience a grand adventure into the “City that Never Sleeps.” After traveling in the comfort of a chartered coach, you’ll explore the campy and fun Madame Tussauds wax museum to snap photos with your favorite personalities. Next up is a Broadway musical in the heart of the Big Apple. Dine at a popular New York restaurant, and cap the day off with The Ride, an interactive sightseeing experience. Grab a slice of pizza before spending the night in a hotel outside the city. On Sunday, you’ll head off to Connecticut to experience Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium before a restful trip back to Wellesley.
