Welcome to our 40th Anniversary Year as Walkabout International has been in the forefront of promoting healthy regular exercise, social camaraderie and discovering new places since its inception in 1977. We have conducted over 25,000 walks covering more than two million people-miles – or the equivalent of walking around the equator over 80 times – for tens of thousands of “soles”!
An all-volunteer non-profit 501(c3) organization offers hundreds of local walks each year along with, low-cost day and overnight trips, parties and potlucks, holiday celebrations and other activities. Come join us during our 40th Anniversary Year where your interests lead you while selecting from our numerous walks, hikes and activities.
See what your Missing
Here's some of the interesting things that are happening in Walkabout-International, however, if you are not using our Facebook and/or Meetup Group pages at your aren't taking full advantage of everything that is offered to say nothing of the fun and camaraderie that you are missing.
The Icons for both of these organization will be displayed on the right sidebar in all upcoming web pages. Go visit a site. Once you become a member it is fun and easy and you can see what other Walkabout people are enjoying. Maybe go out an try a new walk one of these days.
We all have our preferences, some built over many years, but maybe getting our with a new group would be just as much fun and now you can enjoy one more day each week.
