McHenry County College's Trips and Tours is offering two different trip previews on January 30. Attend one or both trip previews to find out more information about upcoming trips available this summer and fall. Previews are from 2 to 3 p.m. for the Trains and Canyons of the West trip and from 4 to 5 p.m. for the Blue Danube River cruise. Both trip previews take place in Room A103 at the college, 8900 U.S. Hwy. 14 in Crystal Lake.
The Trains and Canyons of the West preview will provide information about the breathtaking sites visitors will see on a scenic float trip on June 21-28.
