Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Hello all - my husband and I are arriving Sept 10th at 11:20 and would be happy to share the shuttle. This will be our first RS trip!

Hi Rosemary! My husband and I are arriving and leaving at about the same times that you are. Could we talk about sharing a shuttle from the airport?

Rosemary Anderson Jul 27, 2014 at 03:23 PM

I am arriving on Sept 24 @ 11:20 AM at the airport in Rapid City, anyone else on this trip arriving around that same time that would be interested in sharing the shuttle? This is my first trip and looking forward to meeting others on this adventure!I am departing on the 30th - flight time is 12:27PM, would be interested in sharing a ride back as well.

I'm arriving the 22, and departing the 30th. But my 30th flight leaves @ 10:04 am. If you don't find anyone else and want to leave early, I'll share with you.

I'm on the September 24 trip, arriving 2 days early (the 22nd) @ 3:25. Looking for someone to share the airport shuttle with me, and eager to meet others, since this is my first trip with Road Scholar.

Hoping to get in touch with others who are on the September 10-16 trip, just to say hello!
