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.

My husband and I (Chicago) will be on the trip, flying from O'Hare on 3/25. Reservations for Thurs eve dinner 5 pm at G W Fins for 2. If anyone wants to join us, let me know and I'll change the reservation. Info packet had long list of books for advance reading; many were not available thru my library but found others similar. We also watched the movie 'All The Kings Men.' Would still like to read the book. The RS listings are always good. Plan to take several with me to read during leisure time on the boat. See everyone there.

Dear interested travelers who are going on the Southern Heritageon the Mississippi in March,2014. I am single,I will be going down to New Orleans two days earlier than the Road Scholar part. I am going down on March 24,2014 and staying at the same hotel RS is staying at. Want to share a room with me? Again,I will be going from March 24-April 6,2014. My email is judipotoff@yahoo.com. My phone # is (803)396-0375 in South Carolina. I love New Orleans so I decided to hang around earlier and have some great food and see some sights on my own before the 26th meet-up. Give me a jingle if you are interested. Thanks, Judi Potoff
