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.

This program is a charming introduction to Atlanta, and encourages more exploration of the Old South.

This was my first trip with Road Scholar, but it will not be my last. I was very comfortable traveling alone. I felt safe and never felt lonely. I met some really interesting people and enjoyed the activities. I plan to visit New Orleans with my new friend Pat in Feb or March.

We had a terrific time. I agree our leader Gail Bell kept us taken care of and we learned so much about what it would be to "live here all my life". Other activities that were special..jazz music, opera Tosca, and the tour of the city includying the beautiful homes. Carolyn & Bill Stark

This was a wonderful program, and even though I lived in Georgia almost all of my life, I derived much from this study. Gail Bell was excellent as a group leader.

I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Gail was the "best of the best". She was very proactive and really looked out for the group. As one of the youngest members of the group (53), I found I had so much more in common with this group than with others I've experienced outside Road Scholars. I met so many interesting people that I plan to stay in touch with. This was my first trip and I am very impressed. I highly recommend this tour as it gave a great overview of the city with a variety of activities and the right mix between lectures, tour and free time. The dinners were good but the lunches were outstanding! This was my first experience with Road Scholars and I hope to have many more.

Nancy from Cincinnati, OH Number of programs attended: 10
Date attended: 03/18/12 - 03/23/12
This program provided a wonderful way to see some of Atlanta's highlights: the impressive The Atlanta History Museum and The Swan House included a lovely lunch at The Swan Coach House Restaurant, the beautiful GA Governor's Mansion (where we saw the First Edition of "Gone with the Wind"), the historic MLK Jr.'s Ebenezer Baptist Church, the beautiful Jimmy Carter Presidential Center was most impressive too, the trip to the High Museum of Art was too short, and our trip to CNN during March Madness was fun. We saw the Indiana Basketball team posing for a team shot in front of the huge NCAA bracket board on the main floor. The restaurants were varied all week and quite good; particularly fun was the dessert night at Dante's Down the Hatch. The most impressive speaker was Stephen Davis; he is a vexillologist (he collects historic flags of GA). He is very passionate about GA history and the Civil War, and anyone who left early the final morning missed an awesome speaker. This was our first Signature City program, and we will enroll in more in the future.
