IMMERSION TRAVEL adds much more to vacation time than a typical vacation. Why just take a trip when you can become part of the community you visit by working, volunteering or learning new skills. Wouldn’t you enjoy:  

• Interacting with people of another culture and background right here in the United States?
• Volunteering your services to help others and at the same time help yourself?
• Learning new skills from the people in the community devoted to teaching and knowledgeable about their surroundings?

The phrases “Immersion Travel” or “Cultural Immersion Travel” are most commonly applied to programs in foreign countries where visitors are immersed in different cultures. But you don’t have to travel abroad for an IMMERSION TRAVEL adventure.

People, lifestyles, habits, activities, preferences, history, geography, traditions, accents, games, fashion, businesses and foods differ greatly among many parts of the northern, southern, eastern and western United States. Expand your horizons right here in the USA. will help you plan trips that include interaction with the people and places that make this country great.
