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 our fourth Road Scholar program and first back to back and we'd do it all again. We met so many great people from all around the country. The NPS rangers were terrific and at times very funny. Loved getting to visit places we only dreamed about. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Keep up the good work

This was a great program and we learned so much from the excellent instructors. Our Coordinator, Peg, was wonderful and lots of fun so it was a fine time had by all our group. Serge and Liz Triau

This experience just proves what I've always told my students when I taught school - the more you know, the more you know you don't know. Ireally learned a lot from the speakers about the "end" of the war.
