Program #1180RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
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.

Loretta from New York, NY Number of programs attended: 3 Date attended: 10/05/14 - 10/10/14 On this Road Scholar program you'll go back in history as a guest on the Queen Mary Hotel docked in Long Beach, CA--with excellent speakers to guide you through its art deco venues. Then, after ferrying "26 miles across the sea" you'll glide into the Avalon harbor of Catalina Island with its famous Casino where some of Hollywood's legends once roamed. Program director, Laurel Howat did an excellent job--attending to every detail.

The Queen Mary - Catalina Island Road Scholar adventure has become my favorite so far, topping the Albuquerque Balloon Festival and the Prince Edward and Magdalen Islands Trip.

Very easy to use and saves on paper. Good idea.
