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.
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.

Any one going on the March 22 program? I'd like to hear from you.
Pam C Dec 23, 2014 at 10:22 PM

I am going on the March 22nd program, coming from Pensacola. I'll be meeting up with another RS enrolee who I met on my first program last spring in Georgia.
Richard Klink Dec 24, 2014 at 02:58 PM

I'm going on the March 8 program. I'll let you know how I liked it.

Is anyone on the Nov. 16 trip planning to stay over on Friday night?

warren Young Nov 01, 2014 at 12:23 PM

Hi. We are coming on the Nov 2 trip (yes, tomorrow), flying from Newark (we live in suburban Philadelphia).

Guidance on actual cab fare and shuttle fares? Is it really $33 per person in the cab? The rules weren't that clear.

For those who have completed this trip, how was the shuttle?
warren Young Nov 15, 2014 at 09:46 AM

This is my follow-up. The cab is the way to go for couples or larger groups - $33 for the first couple, and $14 for each additional passenger. The shuttle is very confusing - it is $20 person one way ($38 round trip is no bargain), and you need the Route 1 shuttle. You have to wait for the right shuttle.
Richard Klink Dec 24, 2014 at 02:59 PM

I think I'll take the cab.

My name is Leanna. I don't know why this site calls me Premium. I'll be traveling with my husband to New Orleans this Sunday. Hope to meet you all.

Who else is going to New Orleans on October 5, 2014?
Pat Dickens Sep 30, 2014 at 03:32 PM

I am if O'Hare doesn't prevent me from getting there.

Judith Wolf Sep 07, 2014 at 04:02 PM

We're in the 10/19-24, 2014 program. Anyone else? Would love to "meet" on this board ahead of time.
Judith Diver Oct 09, 2014 at 05:46 PM

Hi Judith'

I'm Judy from southeastern PA. I'm a single and I'll be with the group. I'm coming in two days ahead of time because my brother's son is getting married that weekend. I will be lat to the orientation.Perhaps you can be my advocate, just in ase the powers that be haven't clearly communicated that. I hope to join the group by dinner on the first night. Looking forward to meeting you and the "we" mentioned in your post!
Judith Diver Oct 09, 2014 at 05:50 PM

Looks as tho I need an editor!!
Judith Wolf Oct 10, 2014 at 10:39 AM

Nice to hear from you, Judy! Have fun at your family wedding. If the RS folks report you "missing," I'll surely tell them you'll be there soon. (The "we" is my husband and I.) Looking forward to meeting you, and to a fun vacation. Regards, Judith
