Opportunities for travel abound. Organized travel lets someone else to do all the research and planning. Individual travel allows self-guided exploration and spur-of-the-moment decisions. Either way, safety is the number one priority, said Aaron Van Valkenburg, manager of Aging and Disability Resources, a county government program.
