People who don’t enjoy the casino can walk, shop, read and have an early lunch at their leisure.

Tye’s Tours will sponsor the annual trip to Maine with a play and other attractions. Instead of Ogunquit Playhouse, suggestions are needed whether to attend one of the smaller summer theaters with time on your own to enjoy the beach and area specialty shops.

The Keene Seniors are offering A Tasty Tour of Providence, R.I., for $97. It includes the tour, tasting and demonstration at Scialo Brothers Bakery in Providence’s "Little Italy," lunch at Cassarino’s and a tour of the Culinary Arts Museum. Feedback is needed on this trip.
