The VSANNJ organizes informative and uplifting day excursions twice a year for members and their guests. Visits often include elegant mansions and beautiful gardens. Lunch and transportation are provided.

Past trips have included Olana, the magnificent Persian-style home of Frederick Church; the antique-laden house and lovely gardens of Caramoor; Hill-Stead Museum in Connecticut; the Vanderbilt Mansion and the Wilderstein estate — to name just a few.
