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.

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.

Great trip with a lot of interest and beauty to see - But one should go no earlier than July so the environment and tourist facilities would be more conducive.

I have recently completed the Maritime Provinces History and Culture program and am thrilled to say it was one of the best of the 12-15 Road Scholar trips I've attended. The breadth and depth of lectures and field trips have augmented my understanding of the importance of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. I loved learning that the classic house color scheme of white exterior with black trim and shutters is because the St John's ship hulls are always painted black and the left-over paint is used for house trim. Waste not-want not.

We think that the Road Scholar experience was outstanding and will highly recommend it to others. We will also use the service again. Our tour leader, the coach driver and the instructors and guides were all outstanding.

If you have not been to the Canadian Maritimes and do not know much about the history there, this is the program for you. The program lives up to the high expectations we have of Road Scholar programs and their educational component.
