Road Scholar
Program #9068RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.

The diversity of this program makes it broadly informative and keeps it from becoming dull. It is what I would call a Sanity Saver program.

Fabulous program. Terrific program leader. The only problem was the transportation; long walks, often in the rain; buses not available.

Philadelphia is an attractive, historic, manageable city with much to see. The Barnes Museum was a real highlight.

I have been to over 20 Road Scholar programs and would rate this as about the best!

If you enjoy museums, learning more about the wonderful buildings and exhibits, the 3-night, 4 day Jewels of Philadelphia trip is the perfect choice.

Excellent program; accommodations were good, resturant above average; very good events scheduled. Commentary from guides, however, was negligent. Better lectures warranted.

Charles from Exton, PA Number of programs attended: 3
Date attended: 04/26/13 - 04/29/13
This program was exactly what had been promised, and provided a short but very informative overview of several of Philadelphia's museums. I was favorably impressed by lectures on Philadelphia architecture and history, and (my personal view) that, in our short visit, no time was wasted on shopping and crafts demonstrations.

Marlee from Glenwood, MD Number of programs attended: 5
Date attended: 03/16/12 - 03/19/12
This program was everything I had hoped for. I learned so much about our American history and Constitution. Everything we did was so interesting and well done. Attending The Philadelphia Orchestra concert at The Kimmel Center was such a thrill, and to get to see the Van Gogh exhibit at the art museum! I enjoyed eating at the local places and experiencing that. Thank you to Margaret Biddle and the Philadelphia Landmarks. All the guides were superb.
