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 had never been to either Michigan or Wisconsin; I left this trip with an excellent impression of both. I expected to enjoy Mackinac Island and the Chicago architectural tour. But lots of pleasant surprises for me, e.g. many attractions in Milwaukee worth a return visit; arts and crafts, good restaurants and an excellent book store in Traverse city made for fun evenings there; wineries; environmental programs; and the Packer stadium was fun even though I'm not a football fan. This trip had better hotels and better food than I've had on most R.S. trips. I recommend this trip.

We especially enjoyed the trip around Lake Michigan for its variety, beauty, excellence of local guides, accommodations, bus driver, and leader. The only undesirable aspect was the weather, but that can't be helped. Luckily, we were prepared for cold weather.

The Iconic Lake Michigan: From Door County and Mackinac Island to Traverse City tour was 11 days of great experiences and very educational. Our leader was well informed and very personable and our coach was brand new and top of the line. We seemed to stop about every 2 hours to tour a museum, lighthouse, coastline or other points of interest or to eat. Our stay on Mackinac Island was very enjoyable and educational. The Grand Hotel is a fabulous place to stay and the carriage only transportation takes you back to an earlier time. It was a very enjoyable and well planned trip. Thank you Road Scholar for making it available.
