Philly Flower Show Trip, March 2019

GHBC residents and staff plan trips of varying kinds and lengths to provide residents continuing opportunities to learn and to enjoy the world outside our walls. There are regular visits to museums and cultural events in the Washington DC area as well as occasional trips to museums and sights further afield. Multi-day adventures, like cruises, are organized as well. 

Residents of GHBC and GHA as well as members of Goodwin House At Home and the Priority Club are part of the GH Family. Families do things together, and friends of family can be invited to join the group.  

We are planning several more Goodwin House Family trips. In September, we are already planning a cruise to Bermuda. You need to plan far in advance for cruises.  

Trips are publicized and assembled several months in advance of the date. Items marked GH Family are for all members of the Goodwin House family (as described above). The extended GH Family should contact the Chair of GHBC Trips & Outings, Carolyn Buttolph (703-842-3177 or, to pose questions or register. All other items are for GHBC residents only. GHBC residents may sign up for trips and outings in the GHBC Business Center, 7-10 days before a scheduled event.
