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 Varda
That seems a bit odd, but I am not an expert on "taxi' legislation either. Given that there are 4 of you, the cost is going to be around $20.00 each anyhow. It's at least 35 minutes from the airport to the hotel, and you might be caught in some rush hour traffic, so when you weigh out the costs in that regard, it's still a good price. What day are you arriving?

Hi Anne,
I called Atlantica to reserve a pickup for 4, and Zico wanted us to reserve the larger SUV. He said that the Lincoln Town Car can hold 4 only if each person has only one piece of luggage, and the Canadian law is that all luggage must be in the truck and no luggage can be in the car, not even carry-on. In your experience, do the 4 of us really need a larger car? We each have one piece of luggage plus a carry-on or purse.

Here is the link to the Anne & Gilbert musical if anyone is interested. The Guild Theatre is about 2 blocks from our hotel.

Hello Friends on the July 16th Program! Please note that your "Dinner on Your Own" in Charlottetown is now on Sunday July 20 and not Monday July 21.
If you are interested in going to the Musical "Anne & Gilbert" there will be tickets available for you to purchase for the Sunday night presentation. I will have a 1-800 number for you to call if you want, or you can go on-line and order them ahead of time. Lucky for you for this change, because the musical is not offered on Monday nights!
Let me know if you have any questions, otherwise I will meet you at the Atlantica Hotel in Halifax on July 16. You can pick up your participant folders from 4-5 if you'd like. There will be a sign in the hotel lobby indicating where I will be.

Hi Varda, waterproof shoes would be great since we DO walk on the ocean floor! However, I just use sneakers with a good thick sole.

Varda Solomon Jul 11, 2014 at 03:03 PM

Thanks for the clothing advice. Do we need waterproof shoes, or just sneakers?

We are looking forward to the Aug 20-30 Tour of Nova Scotia.
