For 30 years, Pam Crone has been a tour guide, planning trips and tours for interested parties and specializing in Senior group travel. She is the owner of Bucket List Tours with Pam and celebrated her years of tour guide experience on Wednesday, Dec. 15, with a celebration at the Huntington Historical Museum, which is one of her locations for Senior group travel trips.

“My passion for travel led me to a very rewarding career,” Crone says. “I have seen many changes over the years, but nothing like COVID-19. The past two years were hard on the travel industry… I am happy that we survived and went back on the road in September of this year.”

Crone states that she loves to do motorcoach tours and that she also offers flight programs to places such as the Canadian Rockies and Alaska. She is also passionate about the National Parks.

Although Crone has lost many travelers, she sees their children as clients and feels that her work “has come full circle” now.  

“The enjoyment level that people seem to have when they travel is why I enjoy what I do,” Crone says. “I have been able to share the world with so many people who have told me that they waited all their life just to see some of the places we’ve traveled to.”

Due to the pandemic, Crone had to close down her business, but she plans to bring it back in 2022. She does all of the motorcoach and day tours for the New Haven Parks and Recreation department and has a list of upcoming tours available for 2022. Interested parties may call 224-2339 for a list of tours. Each of the extended motorcoach tours depart from the Huntington Wal-Mart. All Bucket List Tours with Pam flight tours fly from the Fort Wayne International Airport.
