What is the Citrus County Day Trippers?
The Citrus County Day Trippers (CCDT) is a group of motorcoach travel enthusiasts who want to be aware of and participate in interesting motorcoach trip opportunities that are available from departure points in Citrus County, thus enabling the passengers to have fun and make new friends.  Sharon Ziemba  is the lead volunteer contact for the group.  She has selected Joan Sweety as the group’s trip advisor to arrange and coordinate trips.  Joan and Sharon email trip related information to the CCDT members

CCDT members are encouraged to make recommendations for future bus trips to consider.  However, not all bus trip suggestions may make it through the final selection process.  This may be due to a number of circumstances such as a conflicts with other scheduled bus trips, the nonavailability of buses, the nonavailability of bus escorts, and low demand for seats.  Casino trips will not be considered as these kinds of trips are readily available throughout the county.

Special Note:  We know that many of our CCDT members would very much like to see the Broadway musical "Hamilton" in 2018/2019.  We are sorry to report that neither the Orlando or Tampa performance centers are making tickets to this event available to group ticket sales.  This musical is so popular that the theaters are sure they will sell out between their many donating sponsors and season ticket holders.  We have no recourse except to wait until "Hamilton: returns to Florida again some time in the future.

 Let's go traveling with the...

The current pick up location in Crystal River at the former Winn-Dixie store located at Hwy 44 and Meadowcrest Blvd can no longer be used for our bus trips.  Therefore, we have moved our pickup location to a parking lot that is across from the Beall's Outlet store and directly south of the Arby's near the airport.  See map.  All flyers on our web site are modified to indicate this new pickup location.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  This issue is beyond our control. Click here to download the map.

If you went on the Kennedy Space Center bus trip on November 1st and took some photos, then send them to Sharon Ziemba at sziemba1@tampabay.rrr.com by 11/15/18 to be included in a video.

Check Your Email on December 9th!

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE VALUE OF BEING ADDED TO OUR WAIT LISTS:  When an event is sold out our wait lists become extremely important.  We have cancellations on every trip.  The fastest way we can get you on the bus to an event that has been sold out is for you to reserve a spot on the wait list.  You don't pay a thing until you have been contacted and then you will be given an opportunity to confirm or deny your intent to attend. If you accept then we will make arrangements with you for making payment.  There is no risk to you to be wait listed.  So if you see a trip that you want to be included and it is sold out, please get on the wait list.  

"Ready to Go" Wait List identification -  If there is a trip that you definitely want to be part of but are wait listed, please consider telling us if you would like to be identified on the wait list as "Ready To Go".  We use our normal process of going down the wait list in the order that people were placed when cancellations occur except on the morning of the event.  Many times cancellations occur the morning on the day of the trip with little time to for us to make phone calls or for people to prepare for the trip.  But if you are identified as "Ready To Go" on the wait list it means that you are committing to be up, dressed, and ready to receive our phone call asking you to hop into your car to join us on our scheduled bus trip adventure. Persons identified as "Ready To Go" move up to the top of the wait list on the morning of the trip because that is a very hectic time for us and we need to know that we can fill a vacant seat as quickly as possible. We are looking for "Ready To Go" persons to be at the bus pick up location on time.  So this identification is to be used by persons seriously willing to make this commitment.  

Send an email to either contact to become a CCDT member, make trip reservations, add your name to trip wait lists, ask a question, make a comment, or submit suggestions.  Just click on either of the email addresses below to initiate an email.
