Jean & Mike from Kalamazoo, MI number of programs attended: 1 Date attended: 3/15/15 - 3/20/15 As 1st timers we chose a drivable destination (Kalamazoo to Chattanooga). If we didn’t like the program we could hop in our car and take off. At the end of 5 days we left kicking and screaming, wanting more. Carol and crew planned the perfect adventure, a great variety of events, delicious foods and new friends. Do it now!

This program presents the area in a very comprehensive, educational manner. The instructors were excellent and the Group Leader, Carol Burton was superb. Hotel accommodations were very good and the location could not be better.

I have enjoyed all the Road Scholar programs I have attended but this is one of the very best. The diversity and the quality of the events and the presenters was outstanding. It is not easy but even at age 87 I managed to handle it. Anne Skidmore
