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.

I have been on at least eight Road Scholar's programs through the years, and have been able to implicitly trust the program, the leaders, and the other participants.

It was a pleasant respite from the north and snowstorms. We were thrown back in history of the 1500s. life was so hard then, it is amazing that anyone survived! What a combination of people -- Indians, Spanish, French, Irish, Greek, and "us" I felt like an intruder while visiting the town!

This was a Road Scholar to rave about. The Flagler story told through use of period costumes, drama, visits to sites I never knew existed made this a memorable experience. Diane Jacoby was the highlight of the week.

Leader/instructor Dianne Jacoby is a Road Scholar treasure. She is an expert on St. Augustine history, and she tells its story very effectively through dramatic monologues that she has written. Her one-woman show in which she portrayed the three wives of Henry Flagler was a highlight of the program. Lecturers and local guides also made history live. Other highlights included field trips to the fort, Villa Zorayda, Flagler College, the Lightner Museum, and the lighthouse. Hotel accommodations were excellent, as were meals at the hotel and at three local restaurants. This program proved to me, once again, that Road Scholar programs are cost-effective ways to travel and learn.

An Elderhostel experience like no other! Not only do you learn history, but Dianne's character portrayals put you right in the middle of history. A great experience!

We loved Dianne Jacoby. Her presentation of events in Florida history made the past live. Dianne is an accomplished re enactor as well as an excellent historian. Her empathy for the characters she portrays is her great strength. Our hostess, Pat Fluno, was also wonderful. Her attention to details and preparation for this trip were evident , especially as we climbed the light house tower. It felt good to know that she had taken a course in CPR and that we were in safe hands. Fred & Mal Bisson DeLand, Florida

The program was excellent, both informative and interesting. I looked forward to Dianne's costumes and her portrayal of the Three Mrs Flaglers was great. The Ghost tour was fun too. I would rate it a 10. Karen from Long Island, NY
