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. 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.

This was a wonderful 5-day exploration of Charleston. Its main goal was to experience the culinary delights of Charleston, which were many and delicious! But, along the way, we also learned lots of interesting facts about the history and people of Charleston and some present day concerns.

Our trip to Charleston exceeded our expectations! It is the best way to learn its heritage and history, cook and eat like a Southerner. Y'all will love the program! Southern hospitality at its best when you travel the streets of Charleston with Road Scholar.

If you've never been to Charleston you will enjoy this program. You'll learn about the history, you will enjoy the cuisine, you will have a relaxing and special time. I had never been to Charleston but, now that I have I look forward to coming back.

This program, especially for someone that has not experienced Charleston, SC, allows for a brief but delightful view of a wonderful city.
