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.

I am attending the 1/26/15 program. I will be driving in from Ventura CA. I am driving across the country back home to PA. I am looking forward to this program.

We are attending the June 1-5, 2015 program and arriving a day early. Can we get the same hotel room a day early so we won't have to move?

If you go to to your program page and click on your date and then click on 'program details' you'll get a dropdown menu that lists 'meals and lodging'. Click on that - under lodging click on 'read more' and it will give you specific information about nights before and after, I won't be attending this program but I've got a couple coming up yhat I had to do that for. Good luck.

My husband and I are going to Death Valley to hike after this Dec. 8th-12th program: Road Scholar program 6120. Is anyone else doing this?

Ruth Cohen Apr 30, 2014 at 01:38 PM

This is the first program I am attending alone. I am looking forward to meeting other participants.

I am attending the Feb 17-21, 2014 class. It will be my first Road Scholar program. Anyone else out there going? Would like to "pre-meet" other participants.

Hi Maureen
The class was really interesting. It was also my first Road Scholar trip last December. Hope you meet lots of nice people. My favorite was the bomb sniffing lab. She was adorable and so so smart!! Enjoy!!

Mara....can you remember the name of our facilitator? I met someone recently on a cruise who thinks she knows him.....but I couldn't remember his name? Nathan? Last name??? Thanks. Hope you're well.

I am attending the June 3-7th trip. This will be my first trip with Road Scholar. I hope to see lots of friendly faces.
Maureen Valley Apr 27, 2013 at 05:03 PM

You will have a blast. The facilitator is fabulous as are the instructors. Say hello to Mark McNeff.

Maureen - I am also a first timer attending this same trip. Looking forward to meeting you!

I am arriving for the Dec. 3 Class a day early. Am flying standby, so have to allow time for possible bumping. See you all in class.
