Road Trips Across America Seminar

Healthy Aging® Magazine will lead a panel of active travel experts on Sunday, January 27 from 12 to 1pm. The theme is “Road Trips across America” and will feature three book authors.

The Great American Road Trip is one of our country’s most vibrant traditions—the open road, the diverse beauty of the American landscape, and the discovery of the country’s regional culture and cuisines.

Attendees are invited to join moderator, Carolyn Worthington, publisher Healthy Aging® Magazine, and a panel of road trippers to learn where to experience the historic, quirky, and unique soul of America.

Panelists include authors Jamie Jensen, Road Trip USA; Margaret Littman, Moon Nashville to New Orleans Road Trip; Jason Frye, Moon Blue Ridge Parkway Road Trip; Stuart Thornton, Moon California Road Trip.

Attendees will be entertained and informed by the experts’ firsthand stories, while they learn the best American road trip routes and what to see along the way. Book signings by all authors will follow at the onsite bookstore.

All attendees wishing to participate in the Healthy Aging® Magazine random drawing for free vacation stays will have the opportunity to have their badges scanned and entered in the drawing at the door of the seminar as well as at the Healthy Aging® booth.

A previous panel led by Worthington attracted an audience of over 300 show-goers looking for ideas on where to go next.
