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.

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.

A wonderful weekend. RS took care of all the transportation so it was hassle free on my part. The Balloon Fiesta did not disappoint & sides trips to museums were a great addition.

If you have never been to the Albuquerque, NM Balloon Fiesta, take out your calendar right now and put a big note in the August To Do List: Book Albuquerque Balloon Festival with Road Scholar for October! Even at 74 I was absolutely astonished at the visual impact of being there, on the launch ground as the balloons were prepared and launched. I even used the word "awesome" to describe the mass launch.
