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. 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.

Anyone going on the Boston trip?

see previous post by Don and Sherry Bundy - we want to share a four person van ride from Logan to Constitution Inn
Patricia Galowitch Jun 19, 2015 at 12:25 PM

I thought perhaps another couple might jump on your offer, but it seems no one had. I am traveling alone. If you want to take a person passenger. I am scheduled to arrive at Logan at 1:40 on Jet Blue. I am willing to share the van ride if you don't get anyo other offer. I've never been to Logan before so I would need a point to meet you. Let me know if you are interested or if you've gotten another offfe. Thanks,Pat

On the Sept 7, 2014 tour, anybody's guess this year on what kind of weather will be encountered!

Margaret Rechif Oct 12, 2013 at 06:46 PM

Anyone going to the "Boston: Birthplace...." program tomorrow?
Just wondering what's the easiest way to get from Logan Airport to the Constitution Inn. Can;t lug bags on subways or buses, Are taxis prohibitive?
Kamileh Nov 07, 2013 at 09:18 AM

Taxis are plentiful in Boston, and you can even pay with a credit card now! There are machines installed in the back seat.

Sandra Mitchell Sep 13, 2013 at 03:31 PM

I will be attending the Oct. 13th tour. I will have completed a railway tour and will be in Falmouth. Any suggestions on how I should travel from Falmouth to Boston?
Kamileh Nov 07, 2013 at 09:19 AM

Peter Pan bus lines offers buses at a reasonable rate. Visit their website for schedules.

Sally Leeborg Aug 11, 2013 at 12:22 PM

Anyone attending this program beginning August 25? Would like some suggestions for free time.

The boston aquarium is amazing, right next to the USS Constitution Museum and the Old North Church! Free tours are given at the State House, and in summer check out a Red Sox game if they are in town!

Gordon Weiss Jun 21, 2013 at 11:32 PM
