7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.

Went on that trip this May., wonderful time. The airport shuttle is $23 per person for 2 or more, good deal. The trip pkg will give you all the info you need as your date gets nearer.. Enjoy!

They discuss one area in the museum with stairs. How many? I can do stairs, but am slow on them and don't want to hold others up.

My wife and I are doing the Black Hills trip with Buffalo round up starting SEPTEMBER 21. (We live in California but I an a South Dakota native so this is old home week for me.) Any way we will get to the Rapid City airport on September 21 at 3:35 Rapid City time. Looking for any people interested in sharing a van/cab/stagecoach to get from the airport to the lodge.

Even if no one is traveling out of Newark is anyone arriving in Rapid city about 2Pm that can share taxi to the motel or lodge to save money for the rides.
