6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.

Hi, everyone, my husband Leon and I are looking forward to this RS trip and are anxious to meet everyone. We will participate in the trip that begins on April 6 and will be driving from the Atlanta, GA, where we live. See you then. Judy

My wife Mary and I will be driving up from Lake Wales on April 6 to join what looks to be a physically active and intellectually stimulating program.

Hi, Martin, Leon and I look forward to meeting you and Mary. Yes, indeed, this program will be physically active and intellectually stimulating and certainly sounds like we all will have a fun time. See you on April 6th! Judy

I am arriving in Jacksonville on Saturday 3/15 at 2:35 pm. Is anyone else arriving near that time and interested in sharing transportation to the island?


Sue Ewing Feb 24, 2014 at 09:34 PM

I'm making a reservation for March 2 with the GO Airport shuttle for 1:30 to go to Amelia Island.


Sue Ewing Feb 21, 2014 at 08:13 PM

I'm arriving from Atlanta at 1:18 March 2. Anyone want to share a shuttle?
Sue Ewing Feb 21, 2014 at 08:22 PM

Steven Bayless: Will you wait until 1:18?? email:ewingmom@gwi.net


Anne Korb Feb 14, 2014 at 12:33 PM

Robert,
My husband and I are also scheduled for the Feb 23 week. Look forward to meeting you. We do not arrive at JAX until 2:45. Is that a convenient time for anyone to share a ride?
Robert Hefferon Feb 17, 2014 at 06:05 PM

Hi Anne,
Robert Hefferon Feb 17, 2014 at 06:07 PM

Thanks for your message. We're looking forward to meeting you as well. Unfortunately, however, the difference in our arrival times is too great to share transport to the island.
Robert Hefferon Feb 17, 2014 at 06:07 PM

Best regards,
Robert Hefferon Feb 17, 2014 at 06:08 PM

Kate McQuown Feb 20, 2014 at 06:27 PM

Anne, I arrive from New York LaGuardia on Delta at 3:00. I will have only carry-on luggage, so no delay once they let us off the plane. It's just me. I'd love to share a ride.
Kate McQuown Feb 20, 2014 at 06:30 PM

You could email me at kathy.mcquown@gmail.com....we will have to make a reservation.


Linda Howard Feb 03, 2014 at 05:25 PM

Hello Road Scholars
My husband and I are arriving at JAX THIS SATURDAY 2/8 at approximately 11:21 AM and have booked Amelia Transportation. If you are interested in sharing this ride (and saving some money) contact us directly at 516-476-9007 or banda61@aol.com.


Anne Kuhlmeier Feb 03, 2014 at 02:15 PM

My mother and I are planning to take the April 6-11, 2014 trip. Anyone wanting to share the shuttle? We come into JAX on the 5th and leave directly after the program on the 11th. Anne
