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.

I am participating in the 3/29-4/4 trip. Flying from Denver (via Houston) to Miami and hopefully arriving in time to catch the shuttle. Anyone else coming from or through Denver?

I'm thinking of going on the Jan.25 or Feb.8 trip & am looking for a "roomie". I will be flying o/o Kentucky.

I am attending the Keys/Everglads trip from 2/14 to 2/20. I am a solo female traveler, first time with Road Scholar. So looking forward to it. I am a retired social worker/college teacher and looking for a female roommate. I live in Dayton Ohio and am new to birding so would enjoy rooming with someone also interested in and perhaps knowledgeable about birds. Let me know if you would be interested in rooming with me. Thanks
Susan Blanton Jan 09, 2015 at 07:53 PM

Sorry, I was really interested but since I didn't hear anything, I've scheduled another trip that would overlap this one. I am not particularly interested in birds but in wildlife in general & I took a trip to the Amazon last August that a "birder" would love! I am a retired RN & a widow so am occasionally looking for a room mate. Do you travel much? Would you want to keep in touch? Perhaps we may find some common interests in trips in the future. You can get in-touch w/me directly at" HazeldellFarm@msn.com. I have taken several RS trips, it is one of my favorite travel agencies. I am sorry it didn't work out this time. I am hoping for maybe next year....

I don't really swim. Are life vests/ float devices provided for snorkeling?

Sammy Hunnicutt Mar 08, 2014 at 08:58 PM

My wife and I are so looking forward to this trip. The winter has been harsh, and the thoughts of warm weather and beautiful water and sunshine have kept us going.
