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.

This was an interesting course to stimulate the brain and memory and to learn some American history that I had no idea about

I loved it. Our speaker, Peter Coogan, couldn't have been better, our leaders kept everything running smoothly, the variety of activities was perfect (lectures/discussions, field trips, a film, musical entertainment), and the length was perfect. Most Road Scholar programs are too long for me. I wish there were more three-day programs.

Peter Coogan was incredibly knowledgeable, humorous, and mesmerizing in his presentations about the presidents each day. Accommodations were spacious and comfortable, and meals were delicious. The group leader and coordinator for the programs were most helpful, and the location is beautiful. Second Wynde provided a wonderful evening of entertainment. This is a great program!
