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.
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.

My granddaughters and I had a great time on this program. I learned, they learned and we all had a great time doing it. The staff easily conveyed their knowledge to us; the trips were fun; they loved "skit night" and were anxious to show off to the family when they got home. Meals and accommodations were comfortable and pleasant; interns were wonderful to me and to the girls; I highly recommend this for everyone. I'd love to make a whole family reunion with this program.

This was a great program especially for children with an interest in marine biology and nature in general. The program was well run with very knowledgeable instructors. The interns were great with the kids and made the whole experience fun for all of us. Splitting the kids into two groups by age was extremely helpful as the kids were better able to bond and the instructors were able to tweek the material so that it was age-appropriate. We had no complaints about the accommodations or the cafeteria and the crab boil on the last night was great fun. I would definitely reccommend this program.
