Chamber Destinations

An entire world is waiting for you to visit and the Effingham County Chamber of Commerce can help you get there!  Thanks to our national partners we are able to offer outstanding travel opportunities at affordable prices and designed for the highest level of education, tourism, and cultural experiences. 

When traveling with the Chamber, you receive a first class experience starting right here at home.  We handle all the arrangements, host informational meetings and webinars, introduce you to the other members of our travel group and provide you with ample insight into your destination. 

Everybody is invited to join us - you do not have to be a chamber member to enjoy these benefits!  To date, we have been able to take over 250 to various corners of the world and right here at home. We have traveled to China, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Peru and cruised down the Rhine River as well as touring the islands of New England, enjoyed the Rose Parade in southern California and visited Alaska by land and cruise.
