Program #1575RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
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.

Did this trip last year, our first RS experience. It was so well done on all fronts: accomodations, facilitator, speakers, food. Have a great time!

I'm going on the trip to Mackinac Island, leaving Aug. 31 & returning Sept. 5th. I live in Chicago, and I'm wondering if anyone else from this area is going, and would like to share a ride. You can contact me via this discussion board or by email: goldengirl2012yahoo.com

Do you mean May 31-June 5? Don't see June 1-6 as an option

My husband and I are new to RS. This is our first trip. We are coming in from Minnesota. Looking for advise on suggested readings before arriving for the Mackinac Island program.
