6 Days | 5 Nights
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.

My sister, Holly Whitten and I are looking forward to meeting all of you. Holly is from Stanwood WA and I'm from San Jose CA. We are taking the "Let the Good Times Roll" American Queen, at the conclusion of this program. Anyone else doing it too?

Anyone interested in going to see Tab Benoit at the Rock and Bowl on April 11th at 9:00? A great roots/blues guitarist.

I'm attending this program. I'm from Silver Spring, MD. I've been to NO probably 4 or 5 times. By far the best was with this group for Mardi Gras last year. I expect that this program will be of the same high quality. Looking forward to meeting you.

Doesn't look like anyone scheduled for this year's trip (2014) has posted yet... we are from Boston and looking forward to meeting others and experiencing New Orleans (first time for me even though raised in Kansas)
Judy Meyer Mar 17, 2014 at 03:27 PM

I am from Kansas and going on this trip, first Road Scholar trip and I am really looking forward to it and meeting some new folks.
ann tomsho Mar 17, 2014 at 03:46 PM

Hi - can't see your name but look forward to meeting... hope it's not too hot in NO

What time is this program over on the last day, so that we know when to book a flight home?

You can find the pictures via the link I just posted, but this is the one I had meant to post. It will take you straight to the set:
Laurie Orange Jan 25, 2014 at 09:55 PM

Nice photos! Will you be at the 2014 festival?
Natalie Maynor Jan 26, 2014 at 06:50 AM

Thanks, Laurie. I hadn't thought about going again this year, but maybe I will. It's a quick, easy trip for me either by car or train.
Laurie Orange Jan 26, 2014 at 10:34 PM

Do you have any insider tips about the festival?
Natalie Maynor Jan 27, 2014 at 06:10 AM

Not really. There's pretty much no way not to enjoy it.
Laurie Orange Jan 27, 2014 at 03:07 PM

Thanks - we can't wait.
