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. Anyone enroll in the July 21 Tale of Two Cities trip? I am looking forward to it. Diane
Pamela Phillips Jul 04, 2014 at 01:02 PM

Diane, I will be there! Pam from North Texas

I have only done one previous Road Scholar - the Chicago Art Museum. I thought they did a good job and I am looking forward to learning lots. Have you had some previous trips with them?
Pamela Phillips Jul 08, 2014 at 07:46 AM

I went to South Dakota/Yellowstone in 2011 and Costa Rica in 2012. Both trips were wonderful! After Costa Rica I honestly felt that I owed someone more money. I just returned from coordinating a student exchange program in Germany for 3 wks, so I am looking forward to having someone else do the work on this one. I will drive up from the Fort Worth, TX, area, spending one night in Amarillo. Pam

Anyone coming through La Guardia Airport?
Jeanette Cimo Apr 30, 2014 at 02:41 PM

Hi Maxine, I will be at LaGuardia US Air 10:15AM Sun. May 18. I will wear my name tag, See you there.

Road scholar mentions a shuttle that goes from the airport to the hotel in Santa Fe.

I have some things going on now. Will contact you next week. I'm concerned about getting from Albuquerque airport to our destination. Train or Car?

Easy drive, helps you acclimatise to altitude.

Maxine Nagel Mar 18, 2014 at 08:19 PM

Have you booked the trip yet? I am really interested in going.
Would like to exchange ideas further.
Pleases contact me at mnflower3@gmail.com
I live in NY

Delores Bogenrief Mar 18, 2014 at 12:03 PM

I'm interested in the May 19th trip. I live in WI.
Delores Bogenrief Mar 18, 2014 at 12:05 PM

I meant to write - the May 18th trip.

Maxine Nagel Mar 14, 2014 at 12:00 PM

I am considering going alone on this trip April 27 or May 19
Is anyone else going solo?

My solo experience in May 2012 was terrific! I flew into Albuquerque from Toronto, Canada, rented a car, took the main highway to Santa Fe which also helped me get used to the altitude. Used car during the trip on free evenings to drive a group of ladies out to dinner...lots of giggling! Seniors rock! Then after terrific RS experience, I drove the back roads and ended up at a Memorial Day celebration in Madrid (a surprise to a Canadian!) where I wandered the kiosks, got ice cream and danced in the one street. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and was glad I book-ended it with some "down" time. As an artist, Canyon Road in SF was overwhelming. Hmmmmm, maybe revisit this trip in 2015, cpwdesigns@rogers.com in Canada, 'eh for any ?s

I'm interested in attending the program when the weather is warm...in the 70's. When would be a good time?
