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'm attending this program 9-28 to 10-3-14. Anyone else going on these dates? I'm really looking forward to this trip.


Katherine Burton Mar 12, 2014 at 04:25 PM

It seems like every date for this includes the disclaimer of not spending a night in Cherokee. Are there any dates/programs that do include this?


Nikki Descotteaux Jul 25, 2013 at 09:57 PM

My friend and I are attending this program from Oct 20-25. I didn't realize there were so many dates available! I've lived mostly in New England, but now am permanently in Florida, so I am looking forward to seeing hills, colorful foliage and winding roads. It will still be hot and humid in Florida, so this is my escape! Any suggestions as to short hikes to do from Asheville? Artisans galleries to visit, especially photography, glass, mosaics, pottery? Thanks.
