6 Days | 5 Nights
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular 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.

I posted a response to the Van Hemel's question twice, but it didn't register. So I'll try again. I don't know if the restaurants are always the same, but here are the ones where we ate during the Oct. 5-10 program: New Orleans Seafood, 817 Veterans Hwy.; Denies Seafood Restaurant, 841 Iberville; Dooky Chase, 2301 Orleans Ave.; Golden Feather, 704 N. Rampart; and New Orleans School of Cooking, 524, St. Louis St.

Meals were planned to give participants a taste of typical New Orleans cuisine. If you are not a fan of fried food, seafood and highly seasoned dishes, you may want to take along some Tums.
